Tiny Homes – Thursday Doors: 17th November, 2023.

Welcome to Another Thursday Doors!

After a rather lengthy absence, I’m back with some doors I photographed at a local Tiny Homes Expo last weekend. If you’re interested in checking out the bigger picture, I’ve written a more comprehensive post: HERE.

This might’ve been the back of a bathroom door, which bowled me over with rustic charm and intriguing timber.

Although I’ve been on numerous doorscursions in my time, these door captures are incidental as I was more concerned about maximising space in tiny homes and clever multi-purpose design ideas. There wasn’t anything I hadn’t seen before in that department and certainly no magic wand for accommodating a life time of book hoarding and a rather extensive tea cup collection. However, they were incredibly stylish and I must admit my mood plummeted when I arrived home. There’s not one part of our house that doesn’t require extensive work of some kind. However, the expo was also inspirational and by chipping away I won’t be able to turn this place into my dream home, but at least I’ll be content. (BTW the possibility of hosting Christmas here is also firing me into action.)

Although we weren’t focusing on doors, there was one door which really stood out and that was manufactured by Golden Domes. I don’t think I was actually on display at the expo but people were raving about their “Hobbit Door” and the photos come from their website. That would be so cool having that as your front door, don’t you think?!!

Back Door…Would you fancy a bath here?

Sliding Doors
No Doors. Understandably, few interior doors was a feature of many of these tiny homes, and although it’s hard to pick up from the photo, this is a loft bedroom from memory up a set of stairs.

Although I’m here to talk about doors, I have a little confession to make. Geoff and I actually bought a new bed with all the bells and whistles and it is becoming our luxurious oasis. What with massage features and being able move your head and feet up and down electronically, it’s bliss. However, there is a pitfall for the perfectionistically pedantic and that is trying to get your bed in the absolutely perfect spot. You could keep moving those buttons up and down searching for nirvana for eternity and never be satisfied if you weren’t careful. That’s why I’m glad I’m a near-enough is good enough sort. Perfection is a curse.

Storage under the stairs and a few doors

Speaking of bed, I’d better head off. I hope you’re all going well.

    Thanks for joining us, Rowena. I am always happy to see the doors you share, ant these are great. That round door at the start is fantastic! I don’t think I could fit into a tiny house, but they look so functional and well planned. Good luck finding the right spot for reading or sleeping.
