6 tiny home floor plans with simple but efficient kitchens

Living in a tiny home usually demands sacrifices of one kind or another, but the end results are always worth it! The kitchen is the least important room in the house for some of us, and these plans take that into consideration.
Luckily, it's still possible to have an efficient and useful kitchen even if the space you're working with is quite small. The following plans all have functional kitchens that take up as little space as possible but aren't small enough to keep you from cooking!
