9 Functional Raised Platforms To Elevate Your Home

November 22, 2016
BOOKMARK

If you’re a highly pragmatic Singaporean, then getting a raised platform is the way to go. Not only do they give that extra “oomph” in the design department, they are also extremely functional; platforms can cut the clutter by stowing things out of sight, and easily transform one room into two to three functional spaces with ample storage.

Here are 9 ideas to bring your home to the next level while maximising utility.

LIVING ROOM

1. In a home with an open layout, emphasise your living area with some elevation. Now add some ambient lighting and the stage is all yours. Ideal for homeowners who love having friends and family over, a raised platform draws everyone together to the heart of the home.

2. Get the most out of your living area by increasing its functionality and setting up a home office, study area or work station just behind your entertainment center. Resist your urge to Netflix and chill and get productive!

4. Calling all book lovers – this is for you. If your ceiling permits, build upwards to fully exploit that valuable head room. Time to curl up and get whisked away by your favourite Haruki Marakami novels in this amazingly dreamy loft.

BEDROOM

5. We all know having two beds can really fill up the room, leaving little space for cabinets and other storage units. No need to fight it out with your roomie – just do away with bed frames and opt for an elevated platform, complete with a study desk that flows seamlessly from it. You can tuck your things out of sight under the beds or in the steps to achieve that minimalist look reminiscent of traditional Japanese homes.

6. Loft beds and kids couldn’t be a better pair. Zipping through the galaxy at the speed of light? Avoiding massive flows of molten lava at Mount Doom? Let your child’s imagination transport him to other worlds and bedtime will never be boring.

7. Not all platforms beget rigid lines; these organic curves adorn the bedroom with a dynamic sense of naturalist elegance. A raised platform can also balance out and pull the elements of a less conventional layout together.

BALCONY

8. Perfect for lounging with soda in hand, this balcony brings to mind the conversation pits of the 1960s. Platforms not only elevate, but can be used to create depressions for that element of surprise that will bring an onslaught of compliments.

9. If your home has no balcony but you love that indoor-outdoor feeling, fret not. Create the impression of a small balcony with some elevation laid with artificial grass. Best part of a faux turf? Enjoying the dash of greenery without the high maintenance.
