Whether you’re short on space or simply want to maximise what your furniture can do multi-purpose furniture is an amazingly clever way to restyle your home and create a space that is both functional and stylish. These smart furnishings have become something of a trend in recent years. Especially in countries such as Japan where apartments are notoriously small.
Multi-purpose furniture is designed to be both space saving and chic. And it often takes inspiration from minimalist designers who favour simple shapes and basic colours. Multi-purpose furniture can also add intrigue and individuality to any home. Here are just some of the ways you can make it work for you.
Clever Ways To Use Multi-purpose Furniture
One of the most creative ways that multi-functional furnishings can be used in a space is through modular furniture, which is a truly unique approach to home design. These sets of furniture come in many different styles and sizes. Yet they always consist of modules that can be moved in various ways to create different pieces of furniture.
The same set of modules can be used as a table and chairs or as a work desk. And in some cases, they can even become a sofa. This is ideal for studio apartments, as the furniture can change its function to suit the circumstances.
This type of design is more popular in the east than the west. So this take on multi-purpose furniture might seem a little strange at first. However, with an open mind, it’s possible to use minimalist furniture to create whatever furniture set-up you need. Modular furniture blocks come in a wide range of styles and designs. So whether you just want a more interesting coffee table or need to be able to rearrange your whole apartment, there’s one to suit you.
Make A Statement
We’ve all heard of sofa-beds, folding tables and ottomans with secret storage. But what about a piece of multi-purpose furniture that really makes a statement? There is a growing trend for statement pieces that have a wow-factor. Not only because of how they look but also because they are able to transform into something completely different. Take the mirror that can become a dining table or the coffee table that’s hiding a whole armchair inside. These items really do make an impression. And they also help you to save space and opt for a more minimalist design.
Those who really want to save space might opt for something as impressive as a bookcase that can transform into a dining table and chairs, or a desk that hides a fold-out bed. If you work from home, a shelf that also works as a writing desk could be exactly what you need to stay motivated. Whatever you need to keep your space decluttered, you can guarantee that one of these clever designers has thought of it.
Another great way to bring the concepts of multi-purpose furniture and space-saving into your home is through changing the size and layout of the rooms themselves. Using internal bifold doors is a great way to create a flexible space in which two rooms can become one at the drop of a hat.
Depending on the effect you want to create, you can choose different styles of bifold doors and turn a wall into a door – or an open space – whenever you need to. Just like with multi-purpose furniture, these doors allow you to do something really clever with your home design and have a flexible space that you can change to suit your needs.
You can also move the boundaries of your rooms by using furniture to create the impression of different zones. This is particularly useful if you have a studio flat or large room and want to create the illusion of more than one area. Use your furniture to build compact zones and arrange it in a way that creates boundaries within the room. Try putting a sofa in the middle of a room, with its back to what is the dining area. Or you can use bookcases, desks or even large ornaments to break up a large space and transform it into something more interesting.
Multi-purpose furniture and clever home design can transform any space into a smart and interesting place to live. If you’re interested in taking a minimalist approach to your furnishings, then try a piece of furniture that is more than just a coffee table. You’ll soon be hooked on the multi-purpose trend.
