Adding new furniture to your home can be a good idea if the current items you have in place are not really allowing you to make the most of your small space. When you live in a small place, you don’t want the room to be made to feel even smaller by choosing furniture that simply takes up far too much space. We’ve got some suggestions for furniture pieces that don’t take up quite so much space and allow you to use your room more efficiently, so read on to learn more about them.
Pet Bowl Drawer
If you have a drawer in your kitchen that’s low to the ground and you don’t really use, you should turn it into a pull out tray that holds your pet’s food and water. It’s a smart trick that many pet owners are now embracing and it really does make it so much easier for you to give your pet what they need without leaving food and water lying around on the floor.
Stackable Chairs and Coffee Table
Stackable chairs and tables are perfect for homes in which the floor space is not exactly what you would like it to be. Rather than having multiple chairs taking up space when they’re not in use, you’ll be able to stack them up and maybe also stack them into the coffee table if you have an elaborate set up like that. It’ll make much better use of the space.
A Fold-Down Desk
If you need a desk but you don’t really have a space to permanently fit one, it could be a good idea to choose a fold-down option. This will allow you to pull the desk down when it needs to be used but when it’s not in use, it can simply fold up against the wall and be kept out of the way. It adds function but doesn’t take up space unnecessarily.
A Sofa Bed
When you have a Sofa bed in your home, it becomes easier for you to have guests stay over and things like that. There’s no need to find a spare space to place a bed because your main living room sofa can be one too. This even works in studio flats where you don’t have space for a sofa and a bed. By combining the two, you could save yourself a lot of space.
Under Stairs Storage
With better under stairs storage, you can store things out of the way without them ever causing you any problems or taking up space that you otherwise need to use. You can add some drawers under there if you want to build something. Or some nice storage boxes that fit in with the surrounding design might work well too; it’s up to you.
When you don’t have much space in your home to work with, the furniture you choose to fill it with suddenly becomes really important. If you make the wrong choices and the wrong decisions, you can end up making your small home ven smaller, so consider the furniture ideas discussed above.
