Living in a small apartment means you don’t have a lot of storage space, and also that you probably can’t have as many pieces of furniture as you would like to.
Fortunately for you, some pieces of furniture can help you make the most of the space you have. Learn more about these space saving furniture for small apartments and decide which ones you would like to own.
1. A sleeper sofa
A sleeper sofa is a must if you often receive guests that stay overnight. It becomes an extra bed when you need one, and it turns back into a comfy sofa when your guests leave.
Some sleeper sofas are big and bulky, but it’s possible to use different types and models of furniture that will fit into your small living room.
2. A sofa made for small spaces
Did you know that some sofas were designed specifically for small apartment living rooms? Instead of wasting some precious space with a bulky sofa that has big rolled arms, you can go for a sofa with thin arms, or no arms at all.
A sleek, stylish sofa designed for small apartments will help you save some space without sacrificing comfort.
3. A storage ottoman
Adding some storage space to your small apartment will help you cut the clutter, as long as your storage solutions don’t end up cluttering the space.
A beautiful storage ottoman is a great solution because you can store many things inside it, and it can be used as a bench, a footstool, and even a side table if you put a tray on top of it.
4. A side table with hidden storage
If you don’t like ottomans, you could simply get a side table that provides you with some extra storage space.
Whether your side table opens up like a chest, or has many drawers in it, it will be the perfect place to store magazines, books, snacks, and everything you might want to store in your living room or your bedroom.
5. A set of side tables that can be stacked
Furniture that can be stacked is also a great way to save some precious floor space. A set of side tables that can be nested is perfect if you often receive guests.
When you are alone, your stacked tables will become just one table, but whenever you have company, you will have extra tables for them.
6. A wall-mounted bookcase
A bookcase is convenient to keep books and decorative items. But it can also take up more floor space than you would like.
A good solution is to get a wall-mounted bookcase, or a few wall-mounted shelves. You will easily be able to tuck an ottoman, a side table or a sofa underneath to make the most of the space available.
7. A dining set with storage ottomans
Storage ottomans can also be useful in the dining room. A dining set that has four small storage ottomans instead of chairs gives you some extra storage space.
You will save even more floor space if your ottomans can be neatly tucked under your dining table when they are not being used.
8. A bench
A bench can be used as extra seating in your living room or around your dining table, or it can become a side table whenever you need one. A bench with hidden storage space is even better.
A shoe storage bench is the perfect place to sit on while you put on your shoes, and it also keeps all your shoes and boots out of the way.
9. A tall mirror that hides a shelf
A tall mirror is useful when you want to get dressed and check your outfit, and it can make a small space look a bit larger than it really is.
But there are mirrors that have been designed to hide and store a few things, with the shelves hidden behind them.
10. A shelving unit that goes around your toilet
If there is no shelving unit over and around your toilet, you should consider getting one. Some models are designed to hold toilet paper, and they can also be used to store washcloths, toiletries, and other items you need to keep in your bathroom.
If you don’t want these items to be seen by your guests, you can look for a shelving unit that has doors.
11. A litter box enclosure
If you have a cat, you probably wish you didn’t have to see and smell its litter box everyday. You can’t make it disappear, but you can hide it inside a clever litter box enclosure.
Different models are available. They look like a chest or like an elegant side table, with a door for your furry friend to come in and out.
