Despite any preconceived notions about tiny homes lacking the charm of traditional designs, the Farina by Movable Roots is a testament to the contrary. This winner of the Tiny Home Awards 2023 brilliantly combines timeless elegance with modern efficiency.

Its unique design boasts over 300 square feet of living space, complete with a loft-style primary bedroom, storage-integrated stairs, and an impressive array of custom cabinetry.

As you absorb the beauty and practicality of the L-shaped kitchen, you can't help but be drawn to the quartz countertops that cleverly double as a bar seating area. Will the Farina change your perspective on tiny homes? Let's delve deeper to find out.

A Look Inside

Step into the Farina, and you'll immediately notice the exceptional use of space, with every detail meticulously designed to combine functionality and style in just over 300 square feet of living area. The primary bedroom, nestled in the loft, is easily accessible via storage-integrated stairs, hinting at the smart design that permeates the entire home.

As you continue your tour, you'll marvel at the custom cabinetry and storage solutions scattered throughout the home. The L-shaped kitchen is a testament to elegance and practicality with its 36-inch upper cabinets, custom barn wood open shelving, and cleverly extended quartz countertops that double as a bar seating area.

Towards the rear of the home, the living room waits to impress you with its ability to seamlessly incorporate a custom-ordered couch, ensuring aesthetic continuity. Adjacent to this, a 33-square-foot closet and desk space maximize every inch of the home, demonstrating that no detail has been overlooked.

Finally, you'll venture into the 30-square-foot bathroom. Here, luxury meets utility with a standard flush toilet, a walk-in shower adorned with subway tiles and a glass enclosure, and custom cabinetry to provide ample storage. The LED mirror, installed at the client's request, adds a touch of modernity and further brightens the space.

The Farina, designed by Movable Roots, is an exquisite blend of style and functionality. It's not just a tiny home; it's a testament to intelligent design and thoughtful planning, making every bit of the 300 square feet count.

What made it shine?

The Farina, a winner in the Most Traditional Design category, distinguishes itself through a clever combination of style and functionality, showcasing an efficient layout that includes a loft bedroom on a 28-foot trailer. Its interior boasts custom cabinetry and smart storage solutions, particularly in the kitchen, which features an L-shaped design with quartz countertops and LED-lit barn wood shelving, emphasizing a blend of elegance and utility. The home maximizes its compact space with a thoughtfully designed living room for a custom couch, a spacious closet with desk space, and a 30-square-foot bathroom outfitted with modern amenities, demonstrating an unparalleled attention to detail and space optimization.
