Living in a small home often requires creativity and problem-solving skills in order to make the most of the space. Generally, furniture that can serve multiple purposes helps reduce visual clutter and makes your home work more efficiently for you.
Here are a few of our favorite space saving tricks for multitasking furniture that you may want to look into during home remodeling:
No room for a kitchen table? No problem. A kitchen island with a few clean-lined bar stools can easily act as a work surface and eating area. If you want it to feel a bit more special, have a natural stone countertop installed on the island.
No dining room and don’t want to eat in the kitchen? There are numerous convertible or adjustable coffee tables available that can be raised up and used as dining tables or even as desks to work at with your laptop. Some, like this one from BoConcept, even have storage capabilities!
Don’t have a guest room but need a spot for occasional visitors to sleep? Sofa beds have come a long way and are much more comfortable than they used to be, just consider this to be investment piece as you need a good quality bed and seating. Alternatively, a beautiful chaise longue or day bed can add sophistication and practicality to your sitting room.
Need to divide a room without putting up walls? One simple DIY home improvement project to do this in a studio or loft space is with a large bookshelf. On one side, say your home office, you fill the shelf with books and items you love. On the other side, you back it with wood or mdf and paint it the same color as the walls so that it blends seamlessly into the room.
There are tons of options available to homeowners looking to make their furniture work double-duty, just take the time to find the pieces that are right for you.
