Tiny homes have been growing in popularity in recent years as more affordable and sustainable housing options. Now, builders are taking tiny homes to the next level by incorporating luxury features and high-end design. These “luxury tiny homes” allow you to have amenities like gourmet kitchens, spa bathrooms, and smart home tech in a tiny space.
What is a luxury tiny home?
A luxury tiny home offers upgraded finishes such as solid surface countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, high-end full-size appliances, room for a full-size couch in the living room and king bed in the bedroom, and a tile shower in the bathroom.
Most luxury tiny homes are custom built to the owners’ specifications, so all finishes and options are exactly what the owners want.
The Appeal of Luxury Tiny Homes
Luxury tiny homes offer the opportunity to have many high-end finishes and features in a more efficient small space. While downsizing square footage, you don’t have to downsize luxury. Some appealing aspects of luxury tiny homes include:
- Gourmet kitchens outfitted with premium appliances, quartz counters, tile backsplashes, and quality cabinetry.
- Spa-inspired bathrooms with soaking tubs, luxury standalone showers, and heated floors.
- Integration of smart home technology like home automation, built-in speakers, and video doorbells.
- High-end finishes like hardwood flooring, upscale light fixtures, and customized tilework.
- Flexibility to personalize to your style with customized layouts, color schemes, and material selections.
- Outdoor living spaces like decks, patios, and pergolas to extend living areas.
- Special features like fireplaces, accent walls, and display nooks tailored to your hobbies.

How much does a luxury tiny home cost?
Luxury tiny homes range in price from about $100,000 on the more affordable end to $200,000 on the high end for a customized model with the works. The price reflects the inclusion of high-end materials, fixtures, appliances, and technology.
Are luxury tiny homes built to the same codes as standard houses?
Tiny home builders typically follow the same state and local building codes that apply to any home, although codes can vary by area.
Can luxury tiny homes be customized?
Yes! Customization is one of the appeals. You can often work directly with your builder to personalize finishes, layout, features, and technologies.
