One of the easiest ways to maximize space in your home, especially if space is limited, is to make your rooms work smarter. If we've learned anything in recent years, it's that your home can be more than just a living space—it can be a workspace, master bedroom retreat, bedroom oasis, and it can also be a place to entertain. We're going to take a look at how to furnish a multipurpose space so you can make the most of your home's square footage.
Furnishing a Multi-Purpose Space
With smart space planning and a little creativity with different furniture, you can pack a lot of functionality into just about any existing space in your home. Any trouble with space in your home can almost always be traced back to a lack of organization and thoughtless design—without the right storage tools and design strategies, you can quickly find yourself feeling limited by your home's space.
It may seem obvious, but one of the foundations of multi-functional design is to utilize multi-functional furnishings—essentially pieces that fold away neatly and free up floor space when they’re not in use or double-duty pieces that can transform from one piece of furniture into something totally different. Also, the corners of your home are often overlooked and under-utilized storage areas. The installation of a simple L-shaped corner desk or corner shelf can instantly multiply a room’s storage capacity, freeing up the room's floors and closets for other more functional uses.
If you ask any of our interior designers at Rhode Island Design Center, they'll tell you that vertical expansion is the key to organizing any multi-functional room. Walls in the home are abundant and are valuable real estate in your living space, not simply a place to hang family photos or artwork. Your living space's walls can be used for practical purposes; install hooks to hang a bicycle, folding chairs, or you could even hang a fold-down table or desk to truly maximize your functionality without sacrificing floor space.
Multi-functional rooms require much more storage options than your average, single-purpose living spaces. Keep a handle on clutter with creative storage options. Whichever storage options you select, the key ingredient in maximizing multifunctional rooms is that everything needs its own home. When every item has its own dedicated storage space, it’s much easier to keep your space clean, especially when transitioning uses.
