Tiny Houses are affordable, beautiful, and flexible to whatever your lifestyle needs. But they're, well, tiny, and anything you can do to make the most of your small space will be greatly appreciated once you actually start living in one.
Enter the loft. A loft is a room built directly under the ceiling of a house, usually used for storage or as a bedroom, and it often looks out over the rest of the house over a balcony. They can be accessed by stairs or ladders, they can feel casual or luxurious, but what they all have in common is that it's a cozy and comfortable space, and a fantastic option if you're short on square footage. Check out this round-up of tiny house loft ideas that will help you picture your own special space!

1. Unique Tiny House Interior with Overhead Loft
This beautiful loft-style tiny house bedroom really speaks to me because of the ingenious use of space. While many lofts are large enough for a full bedroom, this loft is only big enough for the bed itself, like your own personal bunk bed! I also love that it's situated right above a U-shaped couch with lots of built-in storage, making it a smart and stylish way to use every inch of spare room!
2. Rustic A-Frame Bedroom Loft in Tiny Home
This A-frame-shaped loft is cozy and secluded, with wooden cabin wall paneling and just enough room for the bed and a couple of tables. Overall it makes for a calming and secluded feel. It's accessible by a ladder and opens up to the rest of the house. For safety purposes, consider including a balcony rail, especially if your family includes small children.
3. Cozy and Contemporary Loft Bedroom with Small Windows
This loft bedroom can be reached by climbing a small flight of stairs that doubles as extra storage. It's high up, close to the ceiling to help the lower floor feel larger and more open. but it's bright and cozy, with just enough room for a single mattress, while the small window allows lots of sunlight to stream through and brighten it up.
4. Luxurious White Tiny House Loft Bedroom
Check out the beautiful and eye-catching details surrounding this loft bedroom. This unique tiny house has a cozy yet luxurious feel, and I love the unique details like the ladder leading up to the loft and the pole to slide down to the lower floor! It adds a touch of fun to this already welcoming space!
5. Simple Enclosed Farmhouse-Style Tiny House Loft
Loft bedrooms are usually used in open-plan spaces, but they're still an excellent option if you want to keep your bedroom more enclosed and private. This loft has walls surrounding most of the room, with a window and railing in the middle for extra light and air circulation. Painting it the same color as the surrounding walls and ceiling helps it to blend into the background and help the space feel bigger.
6. Minimalist Loft Bedroom Low Ceiling in Rustic Tiny Home
Some of my favorite lofts are the ones that only allow enough room for the bed by itself. They're so comfortable and private, like your own personal cocoon to help you drift off to sleep! But the window right next to the head of the bed ensures that you'll wake up with the sun refreshed every time!
7. Log-Cabin Style Loft Bedroom
Another comfortable log cabin-style loft has large windows off to the side, opening up to a balcony. This bedroom feels close to nature and a serene escape from everyday worries. With the warm and relaxing atmosphere and minimalist layout, it's the perfect area to curl up with a good book and doze off.
8. Small and Simple Loft Bedroom in Mobile Tiny Home
To save as much space as possible, the bedroom in this tiny house is located in a small loft above the bathroom, with only enough space for a mattress. This is a great option if you intend on spending most of your days out of doors or traveling, and don't necessarily need lots of space for snoozing. With a small loft like this one, you've got more room to stretch out in the kitchen or living room!
9. Modern Dark Wood Tiny House Bedroom Loft
This tiny home features another small and cozy loft inlet overlooking the rest of the house. A big pro of saving loft space is that you have the added bonus of luxurious high ceilings, making your whole home feel bigger and more open. But they're not the safest options, especially if you're planning on having kids living in the tiny home, so balcony railings are a must if you go for this space-saving option.
10. Bright and Cheery Living Area Loft in Tiny Home
In most tiny houses, you'll find a loft above the kitchen or bathroom where the bedroom is located. But this tiny house flips that tradition on its head by having the living room located in the loft area, with these bright and cheerful orange chairs making a big statement. Consider doubling up your loft with a living room and bedroom area to give yourself even more room to roam.
11. Simple Tiny House Loft Bedroom with Slanted Roof
I love this gorgeous tiny house loft because it fits right into the overall structural design of the house. The pale wood siding panels use perspective to make the loft feel like a natural extension of the area. It's also a relatively large loft area, which is perfect since there's not much space for a proper living room on the first floor.
12. Rustic Tiny House Bedroom Loft with Enclosed Balcony Railing
If you're a family with small children hoping to relocate into a tiny house, you may be worried about safety when it comes to loft bedrooms. A great solution to this is rather than having an open loft area with a ladder, consider enclosing the area with a railing and have the loft accessible by a ladder, like in this stylish tiny home.
13. Wooden A-Frame Bedroom Loft with Full Window Wall
Looking for unique ways to add some light to your tiny house design? Consider including a large window element like this one in your loft to keep it from feeling too dark or cramped. Windows always open up a space and make it feel larger, but an entire wall of windows? Talk about a stunning feature!
14. Large Triangle Windows in A-Frame Tiny House Loft
One amazing thing about tiny homes is that since you're working with small square footage, you likely have more room in your budget to play around with luxurious features and statement elements in your home. Why not position your loft area next to a large set of windows like in this gorgeous example? You're sure to enjoy waking up to a gorgeous view every morning!
15. Dark Wood Tiny House Bedroom Loft with Circular Window
I love this moody loft bedroom, not only because of the rich dark wood paneling and cozy low ceilings but also because of the unique attention to detail that makes this a truly special place to lay your head. A mattress on the floor with a small bedside table completes the minimalist vibe and help to pull together a peaceful sanctuary.
16. Sleek and Contemporary Tiny House Loft Bedroom
This contemporary tiny house design combines traditional farmhouse influences with modern industrial elements. The combination of black metal features and pale wooden flooring and wall panels creates a modern yet timeless look. But by far my favorite feature in this house is the loft bedroom and the balcony railing next to it. three large metal circles surround the loft and create a truly artistic statement!
17. Simple Tiny House Loft Bedroom with Rustic Modern Interior
This simple and sweet tiny home is the picture of peaceful minimalist living. The loft bedroom above the kitchen is a good size for a bed, with a ladder reaching down the floor. I like that the loft is small and out of the way so that you never feel like you're ducking under a low ceiling, but the loft isn't so concealed that it feels cramped.
18. Wooden Bedroom Loft with Enclosed Railing in Tiny Home
A good tiny house makes use of every square inch, especially when it comes to storage space. This design uses the stairway up to the loft as extra storage space, while the loft is sectioned off by a balcony railing. The area underneath feels cozy and enclosed, perfect for a living area or small dining room, and I adore the detailing put into the beams on the underside!
19. Tiny House Loft Bedroom with Shelving Enclosure
There's nothing better than smart planning when you're short on space. Another clever way to arrange a tiny house to its greatest effect, this loft bedroom is surrounded by a small railing that doubles as shelf space that wraps around the space from the bedroom to the kitchen. Once the shelves are filled, they'll add a bit of privacy and a little safety as well, since the only open area will be the ladder entrance and exit.
20. Sleek and Modern Tiny House Loft
This tiny house is modern and minimalist, with sharp edges and a deliberate layout. The ladder is attached to the floor of the loft and acts as a small barrier between the kitchen and the rest of the first floor. The loft itself is a good size, but small enough to be comfortable, with a small window allowing for a little light. This layout is a great option for those who don't like too much light while trying to sleep.
21. Luxurious Tiny House Loft with Arched Ceiling
Talk about an absolutely stunning tiny house design! I adore the large round window that makes up the main feature of this contemporary design, and which sits directly under the loft bedroom. Rather than sitting directly over the living room, the loft bedroom acts as an overhang, which allows for light to pour in from the first floor. But it also serves to provide a bit of shade from the outside, which makes it a perfect spot for a few lawn chairs during the warmer months!
22. Semi-Enclosed Bedroom Loft in Tiny Home
Oftentimes, a loft can feel exposed, which isn't the feeling you want if you're using it for your bedroom. But that doesn't have to be the case. The loft bedroom above the kitchen in this stylish tiny home is secluded and private due to it partly being hidden behind the brick wall, and partly due to the balcony railing. By being smart about the layout of your loft, it's easy to create a cozy yet private area for your to relax, which is especially important if you'll be spending a lot of time indoors.
23. Tiny House Bedroom Loft with Custom-Fit Full Window Wall
While loft spaces can often feel cramped due to their low ceilings and small footprint, this loft is anything but. With a full cutsom-fit window spanning the entire side wall of the loft, you'll never feel trapped or restricted as you enjoy the beautiful view outside! With the added benefit of bright walls and warm lighting, the space has a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.
24. Tiny House Loft with Large Dark Staircase
The stairs leading up to this tiny house loft make quite the impact! Nearly black wood standing out against the pale wood paneling draws your eye upward to the loft area. The stairs can also be used for storage and a closet area, freeing up space in the loft. It's a much more efficient option than a ladder, especially if you've got multiple people living in the tiny house.
25. Half-Floor Loft Bedroom and Living Area with Large Windows
When you think of a loft, you might imagine a platform up high on the second floor, but in this beautiful tiny house, the designer put a twist on the classic loft. The bedroom and living area are separated from the kitchen by a small raised floor only a couple of feet off the ground. It's enough to mark it as a separate area, without having to include a second floor. Every detail was thought of, since the wall that divides the two rooms can be used for storage space, and so can the staircase!
