So, I'm not the best person to be commenting here since I have never built a tiny house, and haven't lived in one since I was a child. I do however remember living in one as a kid. My biggest one is simply storage... you need so much less stuff than you think you do, and a tiny house will show you how true that is. The other thing is a combination of built in shelving (recessed bookshelves in the wall) and multi-use. That's more of a lesson from living on a boat a fair bit as a kid - you can arrange a space so that your kitchen table becomes a bed for example. Things like that become not just practical, but require, when you are living in a tiny space.

Moved from a 1500 sq ft apartment to a 500 sq ft cabin. What we did was to measure all existing furniture/large electronics, and give away/sell what would be too large. On the paper layout plan, we tried to fit to scale what was left, and what we felt was going to overcrowd the room, we got rid off.

We got new beds that have in built storage, thats a big plus. We keep switching winter/summer clothing and stuff that doesn't need to come out often there. Reducing stuff you don't need feels great actually!
