One smart way to counter the space crunch is getting multi-utility furniture for use. Your mantra should be – spend less money & save more space. For all those living in quaint/small apartments, Human Scale Designs gives you some Space Saving Furniture Ideas. Because less space does not mean that you have to compromise on your taste.
1. Ladder Chairs
Ladder chairs are typically chairs with hinges which open up into a mini stepladder; these are useful for reaching high kitchen cabinets and cupboard tops. It can also be used as display unit when not in use.
2. Foldable chairs
Modern design is now available for chairs to fold and be stacked when not in use. Do keep a few spares for guests on occasional visits.
3. Multi-utility Tables
The tables are commonly made of aluminium and PVC/plastic and are used as coffee tables, entrance tables, dining tables even whereas the larger rectangular ones are sturdier and used in large living rooms, in dining areas and for when hosting parties.
4. Nest Tables
Nest tables fit in snuggly one below another and can be pulled out during parties or as coffee tables for hosting large crowd of guests. They work very well as side tables for the bed.
5. Sofa Beds
Did you ever have to sleep guests on the floor, or had to vacate your own bed in order that your guests can get a good night’s rest? Even if you don’t have the luxury of a spare room, you can turn your lounge or living room into the new ‘guest wing’ in just a matter of seconds. Sofa-cum-beds are with inbuilt mattresses (made of foam or spring) which can open up into a cozy bed for an afternoon nap or a good night’s sleep.
6. Bunk Beds
If you have more than one kid, then each one of them gets their personal bed to sleep in. This not just gives them their own space but also helps develop a good habit of sleeping independently. When the kids grow up and the need comes, you can consider separating or detaching the bunk beds into two beds.
7. Wall beds / Murphy Bed
Just as the name suggests, this is a bed inbuilt in the wall! The ones readily available in the market include a bed fitted into the wall, and a wall with cupboards or bookshelves which add to storage space in your homes. All you have to do is pull out the bed during siesta time.
