A tiny home featuring living, dining, and storage areas.

Living big in a tiny house? Way to go! Practical living has numerous lifestyle benefits, including saving on space, cutting down on costs, and leaving a smaller carbon footprint. However, choosing practical floors for a tiny house is a little challenging because of the multipurpose nature of the space.

The main consideration with tiny houses is versatility—floors that work for all areas and purposes. So, big, bulky options like concrete, marble, or even slate can easily be crossed off the list.

Ideally, the flooring should be durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean. Here are some of our top picks for tiny house floor options.

Boost Functionality With High-Quality Vinyl

We’ll kick things off with vinyl because it checks off all the boxes that suit minimal living enthusiasts. Much less expensive than any other flooring option, these are durable, resilient, water-resistant, and super easy to clean.

Available in a wide variety of colours and designs, vinyl floors are suitable for both indoor and outdoor areas. Check out all the Karndean luxury vinyl flooring options available on Flooring King.

Opt For Low-Maintenance Laminate Flooring

Laminate is another great flooring option for tiny homes. This material comes in a wide variety of colours, designs, and textures. In short, it’ll add the perfect touch of personalisation and oomph to your home! These floors are low maintenance and easy to install.

If you’re a fan of textures like wood or marble but aren’t up for the maintenance they require, laminate floors should be your go-to as they mimic other textures to a tee. Laminate flooring is available in water-proof and water-resistant versions so you won’t have to worry about potential damage.

Laminates are also made from recycled materials and are environment-friendly, making them the perfect choice for eco-conscious buyers. Check out all the available laminate flooring options here.

Use Engineered Luxury Wood To Elevate Interior Aesthetics

Hardwood is the best choice when you’re looking for ways to elevate interior aesthetics; however, it is not always the most practical choice. An alternative to hardwood floors is the more robust, lower-maintenance engineered wood.

Easier to clean, more stable, and resistant to fluctuating temperatures, this is a great option if you’re concerned about aesthetics and love well-designed interiors.
