XCaliber Container Tiny Home Containers Cabins Maximizing Space Storage



Repurposing shipping containers into tiny homes is an excellent way to showcase your expression and creativity. With their compact structure, efficient design is paramount to utilizing the available space. Let’s explore interior design tips and hacks that will help you make the most of every space in your container home!


Tip #1: Customized Furniture & Built-Ins

Invest in custom furniture and built-in storage solutions that are tailored to your container. Use furniture, such as sofas, that can fit in tight corners to maximize space. Install built-in desks, shelving, and other furniture to save floor space.


Tip #2: Vertical Storage Solutions

Use the container’s complete height by installing shelves, cabinets, and stacked storage containers. Vertical storage not only provides ample space for your belongings but also draws the eye upward, creating an illusion of greater height. Use hooks, pegs, and other wall-mounted items to highlight the vertical storage and create more space to hang items on the wall.

Tip #3: Multi-Purpose Furniture

Invest in furniture that transforms and changes shape to adapt to different needs. For instance, invest in a dining table that can be extended when needed or a coffee table that converts into a desk. Ottomans are a great multi-purpose furniture item, as they are a storage bin and chair. These furniture items save space and add versatility to your container.

Tip #4: Outdoor Living Extension

Extend your living space to the outdoors with an awning and top deck. Use the extended space for relaxation, dining, and socializing. You can place a grill, chairs, and tanning area on the top deck, enjoying the sun and soaking in the heat. Put yard games and chairs in the front underneath the awning to relax in the shade and play games with friends.

Tip #5: Utilize Under-Bed Storage

Take advantage of the space beneath your bed. Incorporate drawers, small pull-out bins, or rolling storage containers to store clothing, shoes, and other items underneath the bed.

Tip #6: Barn Doors

Install barn doors instead of traditional swinging doors. Barn doors save room, allowing you to place storage and furniture right next to the door. XCaliber Container’s 40-foot Retreat Cabins include a barn door to enter the bedroom.

Tip #7: Use Light Colors

Light colors, especially whites and neutral shades, can make a space feel open and less overwhelming. Use these shades for walls, furniture, and décor to maximize the perceived space in your container home and ensure you feel comfortable.
