Small Space Furniture – One of the most common design challenges is working with a small space. Regardless of square footage, everyone wants to live somewhere that feels spacious and appealing. If you are feeling cramped, turn to double-duty furniture for the latest trend in design, essential for those who want to maximize both their style and space.
MURPHY’S LAW A classic choice for small space furniture for a good reason, a Murphy bed is the best solution for expanding your bedroom. A bed that folds out from a cabinet-like wall unit means that it can be put away when not in use. While it’s sometimes necessary to have one of these custom built to fit your exact space, there are also many options that are pre-built and can be easily installed if the dimensions work. There are even models that include a built-in desk that remains level as the bed opens, so nothing is rearranged during the transition.
OTTOMAN EMPIRE There’s a reason that these small benches are taking over living rooms everywhere. An ottoman is that rare item that manages to fulfill three different tasks at once. They can provide additional seating options when couch space is rare. They often come with a lid that opens to hide any number of clutter fails. Finally, if you select an ottoman with a great deal of panache, perhaps in a gorgeous leather or fluffy faux fur, it can also become a design feature in its own right.
TROJAN HORSE One of the most effective small space furniture options for creating more room out of thin air is an expandable dining table that can be adjusted based on the number of guests that you plan to feed. Appropriately named, the Trojan Expanding Console Table can be collapsed and placed in a den, entryway or alcove when not in use. When needed, it can expand to comfortably accommodate six people. A true example of appearance defying reality, there are four stylish Nano chairs tucked away in a hidden cache at its core.
