How To Choose Modern Furniture For Small Spaces

As the size of a home gets smaller and smaller, it seems logical for the comfort to decrease as well, right? Well, that’s not necessarily true. In fact, smaller houses are often considered to be cozier and more welcoming. But what about the design and décor? Surely, a small place must be easier to decorate than a large one. That’s false too. Because of the limited space, clever solutions need to be found when choosing the furniture.

Consider raising the bed off the floor to make more room. A loft bed lets you double the usable space. Underneath you can have a practical storage unit or you can place a sofa for example.

Modular furniture is also amazing for small spaces. We’re talking about those pieces that can be taken apart and reassembled in a variety of ways. They change form and function and can serve a variety of purposes.

And there are also those clever storage solutions like drawers under the bed or sofa and open shelves that allow the room to look spacious while providing plenty of space for everything.

Custom designs are usually a great answer for the space-related problem. For example, you can have a custom-designed bed with a pull-out mattress that basically lets you transform it from a single to a double bed. The clever headboard also doubles as a desk.

For the kitchen, try vertical storage. Don’t waste space on the counter with knife racks. A pull-out design like this one lets you safely store them and hide them.

Ever felt like you could use a bigger coffee table but you don’t have the space for one? Well how about this one? Four extensible pieces let you add practical space to the coffee table and even use it a four-person dining table where each of you has their own little space.

Usually the kitchen island can also be used as a bar as long as the sink or the hot plate are not part of its design. But what if they were? This kitchen island has it all, including a counter that can slide outwards to become a bar.
