Multipurpose Furniture for Small Spaces
Using multipurpose furniture is an excellent idea when you don’t have much space to work with. Here are a few great furniture options for your small space.
Staircase drawers are very popular in two story tiny houses. It’s a great place to keep shoes, books, tools, and anything else that you need a small space for storage. Staircase drawers are a great DIY project and an excellent way to create that extra storage space you need.
This fold down table from Ivy Design comes disguised as a blackboard, magnet board, mirror or painting. It’s sturdy and has enough space for five people. It eliminates the need to have a stand-alone table taking up space in the middle of a room.
A TV isn’t a real space hog, but when you have little space to work with it can be difficult to find a spot to dedicate to a television. This DIY idea solves that problem. Mounting the TV to the inside of a coffee table is simple and all you have to do is pull out the cord and plug it in.
Ironing Board Mirror
This ironing board mirror by Aïssa Logerot is an awesome idea. It’s a full length mirror, but when you tilt it horizontally it locks into place and becomes an ironing board.
Folding Chair Ladder
A step ladder is a useful object to have, especially in a small home where use of vertical space is extremely important. This chair from Stonewall Kitchen can be transformed into a step ladder in one simple step.
Pet House Side Table
Finding room for pets’ belongings when you don’t have many square feet to work with can be hard, but they still deserve to have their area. There are many options out there for dual purpose pet houses, so it’s easy to find one that fits in with your décor. Here are two examples: a modern walnut side table for dogs up to 25 pounds and a small wicker side table for cats.
Coffee Table with Ottomans
A coffee table often takes up valuable space in a small living room. If you are going to have one it’s important that it serves multiple purposes. This coffee table comes with two ottomans that go underneath the table and can be used for seating and storage. There is also a storage area that can be used for books, magazines, and electronics.
Decorating and furnishing a small house or apartment can be a challenge, but can also be fun! Creating hidden storage areas and utilizing space saving furniture will help you live large in your small space.
