Space-Saving Guide to Apartment Living


Traditional homes are slowly giving way to apartments and smaller homes,this form of living is gaining popularity among younger generations as they offer cosiness, while being easy to maintain and pay for. Living in smaller houses, like an apartment, is also a practical and fun option for urban dwellers who love to travel or like to live alone.

But, scaling down for a small home is a challenging task. How does one make it a cosy yet personalised dwelling? Our handy space-saving furniture guide lets you enjoy your dream home without feeling cramped.

 Assessing Your Space

The first step in picking space-saving furniture is to assess each room.

  • Determine your needs: Before you start shopping for furniture, it's essential to identify your specific needs. Consider the room's function and what furniture pieces are necessary to fulfil that function.
  • Identifying problem areas: Once you have determined the function of a room, it’s essential to think of potential problems that may arise while furnishing the space. List out the issues and look for furniture that acts as a solution.
  • Measure your space: Before determining the final furniture pieces, make sure to measure the room where you plan to place them. This will help you choose the size of the furniture you can accommodate and ensure that it fits properly.

Types of Space-Saving Furniture

Now that you have assessed your room and have an idea of what you potentially need for it, it’s time to consider the space-saving furniture options available to you. There are a number of options available in the market today. Here are some of the most popular types of space-saving furniture:

Wall beds, also known as Murphy beds, are a great option for those who want a bed but need one that doesn't take up too much space. They fold up into the wall when not in use, freeing up floor space in your room.

 Bunk beds are a great option for kids' rooms or guest rooms where space is limited. They offer two or more sleeping spaces in the footprint of one bed.

Folding tables are the perfect solution for small kitchens. Open the table to enjoy a cosy dinner or a cup of coffee; when not in use, simply fold it away to create more space for cooking or entertaining.

Floating shelves are a great way to add storage and display space to a room without taking up floor space. They can be mounted on the wall at any height and can hold books, decorative items, and more.

By incorporating these types of space-saving furniture into your home, you can make the most of your space without sacrificing style or functionality
