Whether you have chosen a smaller house to fit your budget and reduce your environmental footprint or your space is just a little smaller than you would like it to be, all you need is a little creative interior design to make it feel like you have the space you want.
The furniture pieces you choose and the way you arrange them can make the space appear bigger or can increase the functionality of the space. You can also do creative things with paint colors, lighting and mirrors to make the room appear bigger.
Multi-functional furniture offers many benefits for your home. Here are just a few:
You don’t have to hire a contractor to knock down walls or add on to your home to get more space. Simply using the right furniture can help.
For example, a wall bed can help you quickly transform a bedroom into a study space or even an area for entertaining. Just lift the mattress platform and push it into the wall. When the bed is raised, it reveals either a desk or a sofa. You don’t have to move the desk or sofa into place. The unit is designed so that the mattress fits perfects over the sofa when it’s down and so the desk automatically raises or lowers.
Other multi-functional furniture includes tables that convert from desks to formal dining tables, chairs that fold out into couches, and beds that rotate to reveal a full bookcase.
Hiring a contractor to make structural changes to your home will cost a lot of money. You can get some of those same changes with multi-functional furniture.
For example, a DIY loft bed kit can add a second level to a room. You put together the kit yourself, and it creates a platform on which you can put a bed or can create a mini room with a desk and shelves. You can then put other furniture under the platform, such as raising your bed to clear up floor space for a study area.
Hiring a contractor to do the same job would cost thousands of dollars. Plus, you may make permanent changes to your home that future buyers won’t want. With a DIY loft bed kit, you can save money and preserve the structure of your home.
Clutter not only makes a room look smaller than it is, but it also detracts from the beauty of the room and makes it less inviting. Multi-functional furniture helps you reduce clutter by reducing the number of pieces in a room. Storage beds help you to reduce clutter by provide a storage area below the bed, giving you a compartment for personal items like clothing and shoes.
By minimizing clutter, you can streamline the look of the room, making it appear larger and more inviting. The focus can be on your interior design and not what appears to be messy housekeeping.
When you are putting together the decor for your home, think beyond color swatches and wall art. The furniture you choose can express your personal style and make your home appear larger.
