Interior Design Ideas For Shipping Container Homes

When looking at shipping container spaces the first thing you will normally hear is “they are too small”. At the same time in the UK there is a love of garden sheds as workshops,cabins,offices,storage all a lot smaller and less comfortable than a shipping container conversion. Here we can see the same space being used by OneCoolHabitat.com for many different uses. Showing that it can be a comfortable addition to a home as well as a retreat or even a budget hotel room. I quite like the idea of the building design being used as a beach house sitting high up to allow the cool breeze to pass through the building.

Lots of layout and design ideas to show even a single 20ft Shipping Container can be a very usable space.

Although these containers were used by journalists in the Sudanese elections it does make me wonder if Expat’s or other travellers would be interested in living in containers as a budget residence for short stay or long term. The fact that these were comfortable in Sudan prove the point that shipping containers can function as a residence without over heating if the right measures are put into place during construction. Also the number of people I have come across in the Philippines trying to avoid paying for anything more than they want to these would fit into their budget as I could easily see these being rented at P4,000 a month long-term in a good location as a basic living accommodation or for budget hotels around P1,000 a night.
