Smart Furniture to Make the Most of Your Space

In recent years there has been an upswing in the popularity of small space living, especially in the metropolitan cities, which is the result of the higher cost of housing. Even if you are one of those living in small quarters, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice functionality, and comfort in your home.

Here are a few tips to help you maximize the space in your home.

Room Dividers

If you live in an extremely small place like a studio apartment, you should use a room divider to increase the functionality of the living space. The most optimal way of sectioning a living space is to use a room divider that also doubles as a storage space. Example, you could use a bookshelf to separate the room while also helping to take clutter in the home.

Vertical Storage

One place to always find extra storage is above everything else and along the walls. Look above the kitchen cabinets or doors to check for a space that could hold a few extra shelves. You might find some wasted space in your closet, which is the prime example for potential extra storage space. Don’t overlook the high sports on walls to install wall hooks where you can hang shelves or other suspendable storage solutions.

Concealing Solutions

Small spaces appear smaller when you can see everything. To counter this, you can opt for concealing solutions such as other curtains or textiles, which can be mad to hang over shelving or across doorways. Boxes and baskets are also a viable way to hide loose objects. Some furniture comes smart, meaning it comes with built-in hiding features.

Double-duty Solutions

To help your home feel larger, try fitting multiple functions in one room in your home. For example, you can place an office desk in your dining room. This way it has multiple functions depending on the time of day. You can also have the space under the stairs as a big storage spot. Lastly, you can turn the walls in your kitchen into shelves like a library. This will give it a unique and large look.

Customized Solutions 

If you are one of the select few who choose to do everything yourself, you can maximize space by building your own furniture and storage. You have the power of deciding the size of the items, and will be the determining factor if they follow your vision. This allows you to fill oddly shaped spaces that you are looking to use.

Living in a small space doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. By looking at it differently, applying a few clever hacks, you can maximize the space of your home, and make it much more functional.
