As more of us work remotely and spend time socialising and hobbying in our homes, we’re demanding even more flexibility from our living spaces. Times might be changing, but your furniture needs to keep up.
So, with that in mind, here are four ways you can use multi-purpose furniture to make your room work harder…
Just because your home isn’t blessed with endless spare rooms, doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Combining the guest room and home study will maximise your space and allows you to host guests – and get work done when you need to get away from it all. Using a foldaway bed allows you to stow it away behind wardrobe doors, until it’s needed. A sofa bed will also utilise the space well – without breaking the bank.
Not only are they both comfy, but they’re also easy and quick to pull out and put away. Once the bed is in its position against the wall or in the sofa, the liberated floor area means you can really spread out and get productive; no compromising on space required.
Think outside the box
Raising a teenager is never easy, however creating a space of their own where they can relax in and get their homework done, is. Having a designated area for them to study will create good habits and with a little luck, encourage them to take their studies seriously!
Whilst not every room has the luxury of being big enough to fit in a desk and a bed, a piece of furniture which combines the two means you get the best of both worlds. Simply pull the desk out from under the bed and watch as the room cleverly converts from a lounging space to a study in seconds. Alternatively, a storage compartment that pulls down into a desk is another clever way to maximise space.
A study and dressing room may be two luxuries. But why choose between them when you can have both? A simple desk and chair can create the office space that you need during the day. Come night, the desk can be transformed into a vanity table.
Small stylish storage holders for toiletries, plus a flip mirror and a movable hanging rail for clothes will transform your space easily. By adding hooks and rails under your study shelves, you can hang additional coats, scarves and bags.
If you like to curl up with a good book, how about creating a cosy area where you can incorporate comfy seating as well as some handy storage within it? A position by a window in spare room or landing where the sunlight can pour in is perfect for relaxing and whiling away the hours. You can keep books and magazines in the seat; it also makes a great toy box for kids!
