Incorporating Multipurpose Furniture into Your Home

Whether you’re designing for a small space or just looking for more ergonomic furniture for your home, it’s relatively easy to incorporate multipurpose pierces into any room. The trick is discovering what you need from your furniture and finding some easy ways to incorporate that functionality into the existing layout of your home. Whether you’re looking to add functionality to the living room furniture or the office, there are a few things you can do to plan for multipurpose furniture that you may not have considered: Need more storage? Go for an ottoman. If you need a place to store your pillows and blankets, your living room remotes, your pet’s toys or anything else you don’t want in plain sight in your living room, invest in an ottoman. Chances are, you store a lot of the items previously mentioned on top of your coffee table, causing your home to appear more cluttered and disorganized than it actually is. An ottoman is a simple solution that’s easy to find in stores and doesn’t require you to plan around it. If you plan on placing drinks or food on your ottoman, or just kicking your feet up now and then, consider investing in fabric protection to keep your living room looking great. Is your kid’s room too small? Build up! So much space for activities! Lofted beds free up the space beneath the bed so your kids have more room to grow. If your child desperately wants to play video games on the couch, consider putting a fold-down futon in his or her bedroom so that you can easily convert it to a bed or a couch depending on what you need. Prefer they study rather than lounge? It’s easy to fit a child’s desk beneath a lofted bed or you could find a lofted bed that has a desk already built in. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Consider custom furniture to bring your vision to life. (If you’re concerned about your child rolling out of the lofted bed at night, invest in a bed rail, too!) Convert your end table to a dining room table when you entertain. If you don’t have enough room in your home for a dedicated dining space, consider a convertible end table. The end table has leaves inside it that can stretch to accommodate as many people as you need and can collapse into the corner when you’re finished with it. It easily hold lamps, magazines, keys or whatever else you need in your hallway until you entertain, when you simply pull the end table apart and add in as many leaves as you need to seat your guests. When planning for this switch, remember you’ll need to have a convenient place to store the end table items and an easy place to put chairs when you finish. It’s easy to plan for multipurpose furniture that works harder for your home. Before you invest in a piece, consider your needs and lifestyle in order to get the most out of the form and function of your furnishings.
