These space saving furniture designs are a smart way to add luxury and style to your petite sweet space.
Let’s face it. With real estate prices soaring, one is considered lucky to even own a home in a big city, let alone a large mansion. Compact houses with adept, multifunctional or space saving furniture is the need of the hour. Unfolding trends in interior design cater to this need with great gusto.
It is indeed possible to own a petite pad and still made it look like a whimsy chateau. Besides, people are starting to realise the downsides attached to owning gigantic homes. Urban dwellers are more than pleased to ditch the idea of hiring battalion of staff to maintain a house that merely lodges three.
Owning large acres is simply out of the question, especially as society (and more so millennials) edges towards a no-strings-attached state of mind. This trend is trickling down to the space of homes too.
Nonetheless, stuffing your world into a tiny apartment doesn’t necessarily mean you have to compromise in terms of style. You can always play it smart with these space saving ideas that are sure to ace your space.
Stairway to Space Saving Heaven
A lot can be accomplished if you made use of what’s under the surface, or in this case under the staircase. If you happen to own a duplex house, chances are that your stairs take up way too much space that needs compensation for. The area under your staircase can be put to use in so many different ways. You can have all your books stacked up in shelves by designing a mini-library down there, throw in some pillows to make it a cosy corner to read/work, or even transform this area into the perfect pet kennel. Harry Potter’s entire room was under the stairs. Do take a minute to think about it?
Another way to bring your stairs into play is to have them designed with inbuilt pull-out drawers. These wooden drawers, that otherwise just get you from one floor to the next, can now be secret storage areas for mundane items you don’t really want parading around. Old Books, toolkits, cleaning essentials and gifts – items you don’t intend to use anytime soon are just some things that can go straight to these invisible ninjas without a second thought.
