This Tiny House Squeezes Our Dream Kitchen and Shower Into 240 Square Feet
Good things come in small packages.

Living in a tiny home on wheels certainly comes with its advantages, like being able to travel on the fly or grow your savings. But with every perk comes a compromise. We were firm believers that going small meant giving up on at least a few of our biggest design goals. That is until we learned that you can, in fact, pack your dream kitchen and bathroom into just 238 square feet.
Home brand Allswell took a tiny home–turned–temporary retail space across the country to showcase its Luxe Hybrid mattress and the beauty of small-space living. The custom-built abode, designed by tiny-home builders Modern Tiny Living, will make its way through multiple cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville, and Austin. While there’s plenty to see, feel, and test out by way of bedding and throw pillows, we can’t get over how many stylish features the brand was able to fit into an itty-bitty space.
“We wanted our first physical store to be a manifestation of our brand ethos: luxe quality in a tiny package,” shares Arlyn Davich, Allswell brand president. “Just like our mattress, we packed the most premium features in our tiny home.”
Spanning four rooms total—a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and living space—the shoppable house features a number of space-savvy built-in features including a custom couch/twin bed with integrated cubbies, a tiled shower ledge in the bathroom, and a storage ladder in the master bedroom.
“We wanted the space to evoke the feeling of Allswell,” says Rachael Durkin, head of retail activations for the brand. “We kept a clean and modern aesthetic but focused on each and every detail and customer touchpoint.”
Standout design details in the cozy abode include brass accents, whitewashed wood paneling throughout, a quotable shower moment, a wood-clad laundry station, and a rustic breakfast bar for two. For warm summer nights and ultimate viewing pleasure, the master bedroom is positioned in a breezeway with garage doors on one side and French doors on the other. Though, if we were to re-create any moment in this tiny paradise in a full-size home, it would be that dreamy blue-and-white kitchen.
While the Allswell home will be traveling across the country for the next few weeks, shoppers who are particularly smitten with the mobile house can snag it for themselves. Beginning February 7, the space will be available for purchase on the company’s website with a starting price of $100,000.
