6 tiny house accessories you can find for under $50

If you’re considering downsizing, why not commit to living small by purchasing a tiny home? Though tiny homes are nothing new, they did experience a resurgence during the Great Recession when people found they could live comfortably and happily in a mortgage-free tiny house. The craze hasn’t slowed down since.

The key to tiny house living is investing in accessories that are functional, stylish, and won’t take up the limited space available to you. Most people who buy into the trend are all about getting rid of frivolous items, living small, and reducing their carbon footprint to an infinitesimal level. If that’s you, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’re going to share some of our favorite tiny house accessories you can find on Amazon — all for less than $50.

La Jolíe Muse Large Cotton Rope Blanket Basket

  • Easy to transport
  • Made with pure cotton rope
  • Highly elastic

Ensuring your tiny home is neat is essential. With small spaces, even limited amounts of clutter can make the space feel even more cramped. With the Large Cotton Rope Blanket Basket from La Jolíe Muse, you can keep blankets, bedsheets, and other cozy throws in a single place. Plus, the blue and brown dotted pattern adds a little style, providing you with super functional storage that doubles as a part of your tiny home’s decor.

Blue Page Throw Pillow Cover

  • Soft to the touch
  • Made with environmentally friendly dye
  • Handwashing recommended

Throw pillows often spruce up your furniture’s decor, but since people tend to lounge all over them, you have to keep them clean and fresh. This is especially true in tiny homes where you don’t have much space to store backup pillows to use when the main set is in the wash. With the Blue Page Throw Pillow Cover, you can keep the few pillows that you have perfectly clean. The fabric is soft enough to cuddle up with, and there are also plenty of color options, so you’re sure to find ones that complement your home’s style.

Susteas Pitcher With Lid Iced Tea Pitcher

  • BPA-free
  • Has an anti-drip spout
  • Dishwasher-safe,  but handwashing is recommended

When living in a tiny home, people tend to pare down to just the necessities. However, they’re often left lacking all the accessories they need to host friends and family when they come to visit. Keep your guests refreshed and hydrated by grabbing this sleek and simple pitcher from Susteas. This large-capacity pitcher doesn’t need to stay in your fridge all the time, as it can take up the precious space you have in your compact refrigerator. Instead, bring it out only when entertaining guests so they don’t have to constantly return to the kitchen to refill their drink.

Juliska Blue Tumbler

  • BPA-free
  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Features a pretty blue design

Junk drawers are unneeded additions to large family homes, let alone compact tiny houses. Organize your things more thoughtfully with multiuse items like this Blue Tumbler from Juliska. This is a great spot to hold small, easily lost items like rings, earrings, necklaces, and other pieces of jewelry. Of course, you can also keep it for its intended use and drink from it too! This tumbler is approximately the size of a rocks glass, so you can always use it as a fun cocktail glass as well.

Pacifica Island Art Travail et Joie Poster by Henri Matisse

  • Great for art lovers
  • Matte finish
  • Can come in a variety of forms (metal, wood, etc.)

Wall art is a must when decorating your tiny home, since the shelves, floors, and other spaces don’t have room to hold solely decorative items. For a touch of high-brow artistry, consider adding in a master print by none other than the French artist Henri Matisse. In the same class as Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso, adorn your tiny space with one of his seminal works, “Travail et Joie.”

American Plant Exchange Dwarf Ming Aralia Live Tree

  • Good for beginners and plant experts
  • Evergreen
  • Grows slowly to a height of six feet

Even tiny homes can do with a bit of greenery — it can be a bit dreary and utilitarian to abide in a space that has no life but your own. For a small plant that packs a big punch, we recommend the Dwarf Ming Aralia from American Plant Exchange. This tiny but mighty evergreen has bonsai-like features that can grow up to six feet tall, so be prepared to trim it every so often.

Enjoy your tiny home

Tiny homes aren’t for everyone, but if you have the opportunity, we recommend trying it out. The movement has dedicated followers for plenty of reasons, including (but not limited to) lower purchase prices, less maintenance, greater mobility, and a renewed sense of individuality. Tiny home accessories certainly need to be functional, multiuse pieces that take advantage of the limited space, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish and inexpensive too!
