Space-saving design ideas are incredibly practical for all small homes, apartments, and studios as they can help you to get maximum functionality out of your space without having to cramp it up. Plus, a lot of clever space saving designs are just…awesome to use! Who doesn’t like the idea of furniture that you can seamlessly hide away with a simple slide or flip? Carry on reading for our top ideas to help you make the most of your limited space and create a comfortable, functional, and beautiful living space.
There are loads of pieces of furniture that you can use or have installed that serve multiple purposes! For example, a sofa bed can be used as a seating area during the day and a sleeping area at night. A storage ottoman can be used as a footrest, a coffee table, and a place to store extra blankets and pillows. Or a set of nesting tables that can be easily tucked away to serve as a single coffee table, or a table with extra seats when necessary!
Hideaway beds – also known as murphy beds – allow you to transform a particular room into a multi-functional space – perfect for homes that don’t have much space, or rooms that need to fulfil several purposes for you. The bed can be easily folded up and stored away, leaving you with a spacious room to work or relax in, and a neat design for your home too.
You could use a hideaway bed in your guest room, so that it can also be used as a home office or a hobby room when the bed is not being used. Check out our post below for other ways you can use a beautiful hidden bed!
Shelves that are mounted onto the wall can be a great way to add storage space without taking up any of your floor space. By having shelving built into corners or alcoves for example, you can turn unused spaces into perfectly functional storage! You could use these shelves to display your favourite decorative items, store books, or hold plants.
Hidden storage solutions are another clever way to give your home more functionality without detracting from the design or useable space. You could incorporate hidden storage solutions straight into the design of your home, such as under-bed storage, and built-in cabinets that seamlessly integrate into your walls. It’s the perfect way to keep your living space clutter-free while still having a place to store your belongings.
If you have a small dining area or require somewhere to work during the day, a fold-away table can be a great space-saving solution. Tables can be mounted to a wall and folded down when not in use, or built into other furniture so that they can tuck away neatly. They’re perfect for small apartments or homes where space is limited!
By incorporating any of these space-saving design ideas into your home, you can create a comfortable and functional living environment that still retains all of its design beauty – even in a small space. All it takes is a little creativity!
