How to use home furnishings to open up your space

If you have limited space in your home, there is no option other than being creative with your furnishings. Every furniture piece in a small room counts, and should be used wisely. Creative ways of wisely using your space involves identifying the perfect arrangement, color, and proper lighting. Opening up your space in a small apartment mainly depends on how fully you can utilize your furnishings for multiple purposes.

Take advantage of room dividers. Such dividers are available in a wide range of tints for partitioning living areas from the kitchen. Lightweight dividers will still give the impression of a separation.

Furnishings with More Than One Use

Furniture pieces meant for two uses or more are the best for opening up a small space. Look for a piece like the BADA table that transforms into a couch or desk. Another notable option is a table with additional storage space. Such tables open up to reveal compartments under their top surfaces.

Build Vertically

Opening up your living space needs you to build vertically. For instance, a vertical storage unit with drawers on top of each will not only create additional storage space but release space originally taken by clustered items. Have the unit designed to allow you use lower drawers as stairs to reach top drawers.

Folding Furniture

Never underestimate the power of folding furniture pieces. When not in use, you can fold these pieces to create more space. The Boxetti unit is a classic example of folding furnishings. The unit hides the bed, wardrobe and other storage compartments into a single wall unit. You can use a folding bed especially in a multiple-use room.

Closely related to folding furnishings are storage units and bookcases that expand based on your needs. Such units ensure you use space that you absolutely need.

Hanging Shelves

Although easy to set up, hanging shelves can help you unclutter your desk. Use stylish pieces to come up with an elegant shelf, be it for books or bathroom items.

Since you have a small space, opting for easily disassembled furnishings is necessary. Such furnishings not only require less space, but also easily carried through narrow stairways and doors.

Apart from being creative with the arrangement to save space, using the right furniture will save you time. Most of such furnishings also present style and elegance.
