Space-saving Furniture Tips
Whether you are maximizing a guest room to also be a craft room or you have a small or awkwardly designed living room, space-saving furniture can be a lifesaver. There are plenty of products on the market that can help, and you don't have to build all of your furniture from scratch just to accomplish the look you're after. Here are a few ideas that can get you started.
Seating and storage are sometimes at odds, but you can have both — and comfort — at the same time. There are a variety of ottomans that also have storage inside. Anything from a simple covered box to a large ottoman with hinged storage can help you keep the clutter at bay in your small space.
Tables and desks
Surface spaces are also always at risk of becoming overwhelmed by clutter. If you want to be sure to keep things organized, consider using a convertible table or desk that can have multiple functions. When furniture is multipurpose, it can help you stay more mindful about staying organized.
Guest beds are a luxury that many people in small spaces can't fit into their homes. That doesn't mean you can't have guests; you just need a creative solution. A convertible bed, such as a Murphy bed or futon, is a great idea. Many people bristle at the idea of a futon, but they have come a long way over the past few years and are now quite comfortable.
Vertical shelving units
Small spaces should always make use of vertical space. When you can't stretch out, go up. You may be able to use attached shelves, but shelving units are also a great way to include a lot of storage as well as decorative space.
Casters and wheels
Another trick that people in small spaces use is movable furniture. Something that works just fine in one space is likely to work great in another, so consider putting the furniture pieces on wheels. Carts for storage, chairs, kitchen caddies and other items can all be on casters.
