3. Make the most of your communal spaces. Segregate the living room with a raised platform. Include some cove lights under the elevated platform for additional pizzazz.

4. Full-height TV consoles pale in comparison to this swanky two-in-one. Mount your TV over the floor console, put on a movie or relax in the extended area – remember to deck it out with cushions, throws and plants for a more comfortable time.

5. Kill two birds with one stone. Carve out a clear walkway and nook at the same time. Set the raised platform in the corner and cut a curve to form a pathway.

6. Believe it or not, this platform is not just a space for rest but also a dining area. Reminiscent of the horigotatsu, there’s a recess for people to place their legs in when the concealed table is brought out for dinner.

7. Why do study rooms and raised platforms go hand-in-hand? Simple! The storage system in the platform makes it easy to organise your loose papers, stationery and other miscellaneous items. You’ll never lose anything again.

8. Don't leave your pillows or bags lying around on the floor, keep them contained under your bed. Implement a nifty storage compartment just like this one!

9. Not all platforms have straight lines; incorporating some curves into a rigid structure introduces a dash of dynamism and makes it more visually arresting due to the contrasting lines.
