With the tiny house movement sweeping the nation, down-sizers are discovering new, unique ways to add functionality to their homes. From turning a staircase into a closet or adding extra storage under a couch, the tiny house community is bringing out all kinds of creativity.
The Cunninghams, a family of 3 living in a 28 ft tiny house, realized quickly that they were going to have to get creative to create a play space for their young daughter. With a little bit of ingenuity and RoomMates’ Chalkboard Peel and Stick Wallpaper, they turned a pocket door in their kitchen into a tiny house DIY with chalkboard wallpaper for their little one.
What was your reason for turning the pocket door into a chalkboard?
Toddlers are not particularly helpful in the kitchen. So the chalkboard pocket door is a simple way of entertaining her in an area when it can be nice to have a few "kid-free" minutes. And, when you wipe away the chalk, the door still looks clean and modern and cool. Win-win!
How has the Chalkboard Peel and Stick Wallpaper transformed your space?
As parents, we want our daughter to have her own spaces, even though we live in a small space. Yet, we also love the design and style of our home, and don’t want it to merely look like a playroom. Finding fun and stylish kid-friendly products helps a bit, but so can clever use of space. Hiding away some of the play spaces our daughter uses is one way of walking this line. Stylish baskets for toys, or a toy chest hidden under the storage stairs make it easy to take back the shared space and revert it from kid to family/adult.
