There once was a time when tiny living spaces were frowned upon. Owning a sprawling home with wide, open spaces and plenty of room to grow was the American dream, and everybody wanted it.
No one wanted to deal with tiny, cramped apartments or spaces, including furniture makers. That's part of what made those small spaces so cramped to begin with! Thanks to rising population counts, high cost of living demands, and a desire to reduce carbon footprints, however, small living spaces are becoming incredibly popular.
This means that amazing furniture for small spaces is becoming highly popular as well. Manufacturers see this and are jumping to meet these rising demands. Here's how you can take advantage of that, and find the best pieces that will fit your small space beautifully.
While it's important to remember that your space is small, that doesn't mean it has to be dull, drab, or lifeless.
Sure, you won't be able to get that giant sectional set or that huge sculpture of a coffee table, but you're not missing out on anything. You can find soft, squishy armchairs, adorable love seats, and unconventional items that are re-purposed to make coffee tables that are truly unique.
When you select bold and bright colors, comfortable and durable fabrics, and smaller pieces that make a statement or have a story, your furniture doesn't have to be big to make a room fabulous and enjoyable.
Even though it is much easier to find pieces that are perfectly scaled to your small space, you don't have to buy them all. It might be tempting, but it'll be easier on both your wallet and your space if you refrain.
Pieces that are too large for your space can make things feel tight and cramped, and make it hard to fit all of your essentials into that space. Too many little pieces, on the other hand, can make a room feel extremely cluttered, uncomfortable, and hard to navigate.
The key is to find the balance between having the pieces you need for comfort and living while respecting your square footage.
The biggest key to getting the most out of any furniture for small spaces is to make sure that it can do more than one thing.
This can take many forms. Beds that fold down from the wall, tiny tables that can expand out, and pieces that offer extra storage space are just a few examples.
Ottomans are a great example of something you might want to look for. Many are built now to have storage inside, they can be used as tables or stands, and they can provide extra seating when you need it. Triple win!
A famous TV chef once said: 'The one thing in my kitchen that serves only one purpose, is the fire extinguisher.'. To get the most out of your small space, your furniture should be the same way.
From beds that can double your closet space to awesome murphy desks, square footage is no longer a barrier to creating the space of your dreams.
