If you live in a big city, then you’re probably suffering from a lack of space in your home. Unfortunately, as cities get bigger and bigger, our square footage becomes smaller and smaller, and we must find creative ways to maximize the space we have.
Here’s our guide on how to use space saving furniture ideas to make your space more roomy.
1. Understairs storage
Our staircases are an eye catching feature in our homes, but they aren’t just for moving from floor to floor. You can actually utilize the space under your stairs for storage, if you’re clever about it. Rather than having small space under your stairs that can hold a box or two, you can instead fit your staircase with drawers that pull out conveniently, allowing you to utilize all of the space under there without any wastage. You could also turn your steps into drawers themselves, to store things like shoes.
2. Convertible sofa bed
It might be difficult to justify using a lot of space for a piece of furniture that only has one function, but what can you do about that? Well, thanks to modern, innovative design, there is a way around that. By using convertible furniture, you can add function to your space. For instance, you can buy a sofa that turns into a bed from Go Modern furniture in the UK, which will allow you to live in a studio apartment with more freedom and space. Or, you could install a bed that folds up into the wall so that you can put it away when you’re not using it.
3. Space maximizing furniture
There are a lot of new furniture designs that are perfect for small spaces, as they have the ability to collapse down into a smaller object when not in use. For instance, if you don’t have much room for a full dining table, you can get a small round table that comes with chairs and fit neatly underneath it. That way, when you want to sit down to dinner, you just pull the chair out and sit, and when it is not in use, the unit acts as an island style table that can have many uses.
4. Fold down table
One of the cutest modern furniture designs for small spaces that can really add character to a room is a fold down table. These tables look like cabinets when they are packed away, mounted and latched to the wall securely. When you want to use it, you just undo the latch and pull the table down. These units can be really handy as they double up as storage depending on the style, which means you can be stylish and functional at the same time.
Just because you live in a small place, it doesn’t mean that you are limited in the style and function of the furniture you want to have in your home. There are many space-saving furniture options out there that will allow you to live comfortably without sacrificing any of your precious space. By using our guide you can plan your perfect décor that will help you get the most out of your living space.
