A welcoming entryway shouldn’t feel cramped and uncomfortable, just the opposite. To create the illusion of space and to actually save floor space you should consider floating shelves, benches and cabinets. They offer more space than they take.

Shelves are extremely useful, especially in small spaces. We all have shelves in our homes but what about floating shelves? They’re the more refined and simple version of traditional bookshelves and cabinets. Use them anywhere in the house.

A suspended cabinet looks less robust and invasive than one sitting on the floor. It looks light and more refined and elegant. Although usually found in kitchens, floating cabinets look exceptionally beautiful in living rooms and dining areas. They offer the freedom of installing them at any height you want and this makes them a lot more practical.

An outdoor kitchen feels a lot more spacious than an indoor one but, still, it can’t hurt to make it feel even more airy with features like a floating grill top, a bar or a combination of the two. Plenty of counter and prep space and plenty of style too.

Bathroom Vanities.

A great way to give a bathroom a more spacious and open look is with elements like floating vanities. They look less robust and feel light and delicate while preserving their functionality. If you want, you can also add a stylish touch to the bathroom and give it a spa-like feel with river stones and the right amount of accent lighting.

The kitchen island is designed to offer you more prep and counter space but sometimes not even that is enough. Floating extensions like this one come in very handy. Use it as extra counter space, as a bar or as a dining table.

Floating Beds.

These beds come with both advantages and disadvantages. Obviously, they look beautiful, modern and minimalistic but a floating bed eliminates from the start the underbed storage option. On the other hand, cleaning is a breeze and the visual impact is amazing.

Night Stands

The great thing about floating night stands is that you can install them at any height and this gives you more room for customization. They’re also wonderful because they offer you storage and display space in a more compact and glamorous version.

Floating Desks.

Floating desks are an especially great option if you’re trying to save space or to squeeze some workspace in a tiny corner in case you don’t have a home office. However, they work well if you’re using a laptop or a computer that doesn’t require you to store a big base unit in your desk.

Sleek dining table.

Don’t you find the legs of the dining table to be annoying, especially if you’re sitting in the corner? Eliminate the discomfort with a floating table. This one is actually an extension of the kitchen island but you can mount one on the wall just as easily.
