Living in a small space can be tough. Finding affordable, storage-savvy furnishings for your petite place is maybe even harder. Sure, the web is brimming with attractive options, but to make the most of your tiny abode, it’s important to seek out purposeful pieces of furniture and accessories—i.e. items that are both space efficient and multi-functional.
- Storage Ottomans
Have you ever realized that the cushion you rest your feet on has so many purposes? The ottoman has come a long way, and in today’s décor, it can be used as storage, extra seating, and a coffee table! From small ones to oversized ones, ottomans are the hidden gem that may be missing from your space.
Floating shelves are a brilliant solution for small rooms because they take up so little space and can be placed just about anywhere. Visually they’re linear and therefore don’t take up any unnecessary visual space either.
- Cabinet Organizers
Unless you’re all about the minimalist trend, it’s hard to keep a small space looking clutter-free. Where are you supposed to hide all of your non-valuable items that you still need on a daily basis? Cabinet Organziers! Not only do they keep your items tucked away, but they keep your cabinets clutter free too.
- Multi-Functional Furniture
Part of functioning in a small space is having furniture that can play dual roles. Not everyone has a spare bedroom for a guest to stay in, why not a love seat that doubles as a bed? Or a table that folds into a seating area when you don’t have the space for a desk and a kitchen table. These are great examples of how to function and maximize that space you have.
- Under Bed Organization
The space under your bed can be put to sensible use by placing any of these bins seen below. Why should the dust bunnies have the space all to themselves? Under-bed containers can hold the shorts and tank tops you’re not wearing in January and make more room for what you are wearing.
