A few months ago, we posted an article that asked: LADDER vs. STAIRCASE, which would you choose for your Tiny House RV? The overwhelming opinion was that a staircase was preferred, but only if it didn’t overwhelm the living space. It sounds like we need to get creative!

Below you’ll find FIVE SPACE SAVING STAIRCASE IDEAS to get your inventive juices flowing.

1). Japanese Tansu Steps

Japanese Tansu Steps are available for purchase, but if you’re looking to save some cash, try building them yourself. Start from scratch or modify an existing bookshelf. Stack and secure wood storage boxes or antique crates (such as Tiny House Giant Journey did in the video below).

2). Tiny Spiral Staircase

In a tiny space, an average-sized spiral staircase will dominate the great room. So if you’re interested in this aesthetic for your Tiny House RV, you’ll have to get creative and think tinier. Molly and Zack’s tiny spiral staircase design (1st image Photo Credit: Mark Fisher) was featured on the TV show Tiny House Nation.
