A half-table, a narrow rack, a folding stand, small consoles… – there are lots of ideas to choose furniture to save space. Here are few of them.
In a small room every inch is on account. In such constrained conditions not all furniture will fit. To solve this problem designers use different solutions – furniture-transformer, niches, podiums, etc. But all this will require your considerable time and money.
The best option is to choose small and multifunctional products. Due to design tricks of ordinary furniture items, you can get excellent options for small rooms. They will not only be practical and aesthetic, but also very original, which is only a plus for the interior. Here are some examples:
Due to the narrow shelf, several figure balusters or legs from an old table, you can gey a wonderful stand for TV, books, plants or small interior items.
Even a small coffee table can occupy a lot of precious space. It is best to replace it with a mini table in the form of a cape on the arms of upholstered furniture. It’s very convenient and functional. It can be selected for a certain width of the armrest, and if necessary just fold and remove.
If you want to decorate a free wall in a small space (for example, in a corridor or in a kitchen), then you can use the idea of a rack with walls of minimum thickness. Thin crossbeams will help to fix reliably things on the shelves. Such a mini-sideboard is perfect for demonstrating a collection of decorative plates, books or photos.
Shelf behind the sofa
Many designers advise not to set the furniture closely to the wall. One of the reasons for this is the opportunity to organize an additional functional surface between the sofa and the wall in the form, for example, of a narrow, elongated table top. It’s convenient to have house plants, books, and any accessories for the interior.
In small bedrooms the usual nightstand can be uncomfortable and occupy too much space. But there is a way out – to mount a small shelf in the wall similar to the one that was usually purchased as a stand for a stationary phone.
Secret garbage cabin
Sometimes it’s not easy to find a decent and convenient place for a trash can in tiny kitchens. A good idea is to disguise it in a narrow, small locker with a folding door.
Shelves behind the door
Most often the area behind the door remains free and isn’t used at all. But in small spaces, even this area can be very useful. In addition to the hangers and hanging pockets you can arrange several narrow book-shelves on the wall behind the door. This is an excellent alternative to the cumbersome bookcase.
Half of a table
There is a nice small table, but there is no place for it? Try to approach the issue drastically: cut the table in half and fix one of its halves to the wall. So you get the original piece of furniture and save the space of the room. The other half of the table can be attached in the wall of another room.
A very unusual and practical solution is to acquire a mirror that transforms into a suspended table. To create such a miracle furniture for small spaces is not difficult. It takes two identical pieces of wood and a mirror. One of them will be the basis for mirrors, and the other – for the table. They can be fastened with conventional door hinges.
Beds with built-in bookshelves on the sides are no longer a rarity. An ordinary pouf, ottoman or banquet can work by the same principle. Add bookshelves to these small items – and you will get at once three in one: a footrest, a seat and a practical mini book rack. And placing a wide tray on the pouf, you become the owner of a comfortable small table for pleasant tea-drinking in the living-room.
