Versatility of Multipurpose Furniture

Friday, August 18, 2017

Living in a small space shouldn’t have to mean feeling cramped. Multifunctional transforming furniture is a smarter way to live more comfortably in your home, explains Sangram Bhoite

The biggest problem facing the home owner today is lack of space and storage. This can be addressed by using furniture items which are user friendly as well as aesthetically pleasing. Regardless of the size of your home, it’s difficult to include in the decor every little object that you might or might not need at some point. It’s not practical either as it’s much simpler to just opt for fewer multipurpose pieces of furniture that will serve you just as well. This way you save space and money and you get to have everything you need right there in your small home.

For better storage
One such example are footstools with storage - they can be used as a table, foot rest or storage space and can easily be moved around a room. These ottomans can be in wood, leather topped or even upholstered. The sides can be of some decorative material.

Sitting and sleeping both can be addressed with the versatile sofa-cum-bed. The old style alternative was the ‘divan’ bed, which included storage for all the junk of the house. A bedside table can do double duty as the dressing table, once topped by a mirror. A slightly bigger version can even serve as a writing table at a pinch.

Chair essentials
Folding chairs are also an idea which has been around for centuries. Resin or plastic stackable chairs have evolved into a style all their own. They are easily stored when not in use. A colour matched pillow placed on is a quick way to make them work as an appealing functional piece.

Mobile furniture
Dining room tables with extending table tops, otherwise known as drop leaf tables. These are great for small space use, and they can easily adjust for larger spaces and more numbers of people. Mobile furniture (items that have wheels) also can help people use space well. Rolling wooden carts with cabinets underneath can be used in different rooms. There are other multipurpose items like a chair-cum-ladder, and even an inflatable bed which also is a chair, available in the market today as manufacturers have also realised the potential of this trend.
