When you live by yourself you get a lot of great benefits. You can leave the toilet seat up, for one stereotypical example. You can paint the whole place pink if you so fancy. The place is yours and you can make it a reflection of your personality.
These tiny home plans make the most out of a small space, bringing fun twists and living-it-large ideas to your bachelor (or bachelorette) pad.
