How to Create a Space-Saving Home… without Carpentry!

October 3, 2018 · Paid Partnership with Fullhouse Furnishings

With apartments shrinking over time, it’s no wonder homeowners are constantly looking for smarter ways to increase storage (and walking) space! While built-in carpentry is one way of maximizing square footage, they can be very costly, time consuming – and admit it - stubbornly fixed.

A better alternative? Space-saving furniture! Rather than spending inordinate amounts of time trying to plan and fit in the necessary pieces for your dream home, these smart furniture pieces from Fullhouse Home Furnishings can help make the most of your limited square footage – without the hefty price tag.

(Psst: Plus, a special deal exclusively for Qanvast readers! More details at the end of the article.)

1. Create more room for wining (and dining) with an extendable dining table.

We all know eating is a national pastime, and what’s better than spending time wining and dining with loved ones? With a simple touch of a hand, this traditional 4-seater dining table can be extended to accommodate more people - great if you’re expecting an expansion in family, or simply thinking ahead for future house parties and Chinese New Year gatherings.

2. Upgrade your living area with a multipurpose sofa.

This L-shaped sofa doesn’t just have one, but three purposes! Besides allowing you to be a couch potato after a long days’ work, the seats can be pulled out to create a spacious bed, perfect for times when you have extra guests for movie marathons/sleepover parties. Plus, extra brownie points for being space savvy – lift up the chaise-longue, and you’ll discover that the unit comes with under-seat storage as well!

3. Store more stuff within your bedroom with a storage bedframe

The average bedroom in a typical BTO flat is about 92 to 93 sqft – which is probably enough to fit in a wardrobe, queen size bed and (perhaps) one bedside table. While built-in platforms are one convenient way of adding storage for the bedroom, they aren’t exactly the most cost-saving.

The alternative? Fullhouse’s Storage Bedframes! The Kasey bedframe comes with underneath storage compartments wide enough to fit 3-4 cabin to medium sized luggages. Plus, choose from over 70 different headboards and various bedframe fabrics for the perfect bedroom setting.

4. Sleep and study in one place with Eden Smart Living smart beds.

Simple but practical, the Beth wall bed comes with convenient drawers underneath for additional storage.

Thinking of squeezing in a sleeping and studying area into a single room? You don’t have to settle with doing work literally on the bed. With Eden Smart Living’s range of flip-down wall beds, save the hassle of fitting (and paying for) a separate study desk, bed frame, cabinet and bookshelf whilst freeing up valuable floor space for other activities!

Work and rest, all in a single space - each bed comes with a study desk that stays on an upright position when the bed frame is flipped down, allowing you to leave your items as-is, even when you snooze. What’s more, each smart bed comes with in-built LED lights that work as study lamps or night lights – how convenient!
