BOOKMARK

Small home? No problem. No spatial dilemma is too big to tackle with these creative smart storage ideas and innovative multi-purpose furniture that will help to declutter your home, and make space where there is none.

Go For Foldable/Pull-Out Furniture

1. If space is what you lack in a small bedroom and a bed is in the way, this magical foldable bed is the only solution you need. Easy, tidy, and your sheets will never be colonised by another. Pull it down before you sleep and push it up when not in use to save precious space.

2. Say yes to this ingenious dining table now. On a normal day, it is an unassuming small counter just perfect for a small family. But when you have company over, it is able to extend out to accommodate at least ten people. This space-friendly pop-out table will solve your dining dilemma in a pinch.

4. Tuck away insightly cables whether you are using phone when in bed, or leaving it to charge while you sleep. We like how this handy bedside table has a hidden compartment for your charging cables without all the mess and fuss.

Work That Awkward Layout

5. The trouble with buying pre-made shelves and cabinets is that they can leave awkward corners and dead ends—all that space wasted! Custom make your cupboards to fit the corners like this and make your life more convenient.

6. With a little bit of imagination and creativity, you can make an awkward layout work to your advantage. This posh walk-in wardrobe makes great use of its awkward layout, even managing to create space for a little functional dressing table in an unwieldy setting.

Go Multipurpose

7. Got a big family? One clever way of accomodating a multi-generational family in a small apartment is to include a sofa that allows front and back seating for a great family bonding time. We like how the designer managed to carve a space for the study from the small living room.
