It goes without saying that going tiny isn’t for everyone: There are plenty of sacrifices to be made — privacy, space for cartwheels, dreams of seven-person jacuzzi tubs and California kings — but with the right creative minds in charge, the possibilities are endless.

The Tiny Heirloom team behind the designs seen in Tiny Luxury would make even the greatest tiny-living skeptic jealous — top-to-bottom wood accents, skylights, gorgeous high-end backsplashes? Yes, please! Here’s a peek at some of the more memorable and lust-worthy luxuries seen in tiny dwellings featured on HGTV and DIY Network’s Tiny Luxury's which returns with new episodes May 18 on DIY Network.

How about a clawfoot tub? Got that? Right.

Light-Up Stairs

Tiny Luxury

Tiny Luxury

Do you have light-up … OK, you get the point. Yes, this is a smaller staircase than those usually found in regular-sized homes, but the lighting on the treads make them seem, well, larger than life.

Custom Record Cabinet

Tiny Luxury

Any audiophile with a taste for fine records can appreciate, and be seriously jealous of, a custom build like this one.

Rooftop Hangout

"Tiny houses are so … tiny! How could anyone live with so little space?!" Well, here you go. Plus, you know, the endless acreage at your disposal when you park your house out in the woods.

Himalayan Salt Wall

It’s been purported that, when heated, the ions from Himalayan salt lamps can increase blood flow, alleviate some allergies and help you sleep better. Do you have a wall in your mainstream house that can do that?

Skylights on Skylights

Tiny Luxury

Tiny Luxury

If your tiny house doesn’t have at least one giant skylight directly above your bed, you’re doing it wrong, sir.

Garage Door

Everyone likes going to those restaurants with giant garage doors that essentially create the feeling of alfresco dining on a super nice day, right? Imagine that, every day, in your living room. Mind blown yet?

Rock Climbing Wall

Can’t find any giant rocks to climb during your travels? No problem! Athleisure just took on a whole new meaning.

See All Photos

Look Up!

The master bedroom in Sarah and Julie’s tiny home has the perfect combination of warm wood accents and natural light from the skylight and surrounding windows to create the ideal outdoor sleeping oasis.

 

Custom Barn Door

Nearly everything in this tiny home is custom-made, including the living area’s sliding barn door that saves space and also happens to look super stylish. 

 

 

Dark Trim

Matching the hardwood floors and custom stairs to the lofted bedroom, the deep stained trim throughout this tiny house creates a balance of the light finishings and rustic vibes throughout the space.

 

Butcher Block Countertops

Counterspace is few and far between in tiny houses, so butcher block countertops are not only super functional but also very pleasing to the eye.

 

Custom Kitchen Table

While this piece looks like a dual purpose spice rack and design feature, it’s actually also pulls down into a roomy kitchen table. 

 

Custom Cedar Siding

This 140-square-foot tiny home is packed with serious modern style inside and out. 

 

 

Multifunctional Platform

The overall budget for this tiny house was a whopping $120,000, but features like this custom cedar platform with storage compartments and a pull-out bed make it seem more than worth it.

Modern Feature Wall

The custom cedar siding complementing this tiny home’s metal finish almost overshadows its picturesque rooftop hangout space.

 

Built-in Heater

Function and purpose all in one? Nailed it! This custom cedar staircase has drawers for storage and a built-in fireplace for some much-needed winter warmth. 

 

 

Record Cabinet

The owner of this tiny house is a serious audiophile and therefore wanted to showcase his record collection, as well as his high-end record player. The Tiny Heirloom crew created a custom cabinet and 5 feet of open-face storage anyone would be envious of.

 

Bedroom Loft Contrast

Not only is this sleeping space larger than most at 75 square feet, but the contrasting wood accents and rich, creamy paneling are simply breathtaking.

Sleeping Loft Accents

Dining Table

This custom cherry wood table is large enough for the not-so-tiny family to enjoy dinner together and also easy to reposition for a perfect fit.

Zen Sleeping Loft

The California couple behind this tiny paradise wanted something a bit more modern and “zen” than their current rustic gigs. The pine tongue-and-groove ceiling upstairs accomplishes this nicely.

 

Zen Sleeping Loft

The Tiny Heirloom team wanted to bring a lot of natural materials inside the space. One of the ways they did this was by warming up the sleeping loft with this stained-wood ceiling throughout.

 

Stairway to Heaven

This 8-foot run of stairs creates a grand entrance up to the sleeping loft and includes a pull-out table made from a striking tigerwood. 

 

Clear Cedar Siding

More cedar! This combination of stains and the dark-tone sheeting creates the modern zen vibe the couple was going for. 

 

Not Your Average Staircase

Aside from the incredible lighting installed within each step, this staircase has several awesome surprises hidden within.

 

Hidden Wine Storage

The owner of this mobile vacation home is a self-described wine fanatic, and this custom-built wine rack underneath the stairs couldn’t be more perfect. 

 

Hang Your Hat

The Tiny Heirloom team managed to find this custom coat rack made from a wine barrel, and it’s a perfect fit for Karin’s kitchen.

 

Cozy Kitchen

Natural materials and live plants are the name of the game for this tiny abode. Dark wood cabinets and a hammered copper farmhouse sink really tie the room together. 

 

 

Double Staircase

The collapsible staircase is actually automated to help save space and allow two points of access to the top floor.

 

Finishing Touches

The alder-wood ceiling throughout the home add a special touch that anyone would be delighted to fall asleep staring at.
