With the recent rent hikes, many people have had to move into a home with a much smaller footprint for the same value of money. If youâ€™re in that predicament, hereâ€™s how you can enjoy increasingly space by furnishing your new home using space-saving furniture like bunk beds with sedentary areas, versatile tables, wall beds and sofa beds in Singapore.
Conventional furniture has a habit of hogging our space 24/7. Yet many items â€“ dining tables stuff a archetype example â€“ are only used for a few hours a day. By making your space increasingly fluid with space-saving furniture, you could do increasingly with less, and save a hefty value on rent in the process.
We asked MATTHEW LEVIN, co-founder of Spaceman, Singaporeâ€™s leader in space-saving furniture, how to go well-nigh it. He says there are three areas where Spaceman helps customers to save space, with products that are hands dismantled and moved with you when you relocate.
#1 Coffee and dinner on the same table
â€śWe only use a dining table for a few hours a day at the most,â€ť says Matthew, â€śand some people might not plane use it every day. Yet we double our living zone to make space for it.â€ť Instead, he suggests using a multi-function dining table that can be shrunk lanugo to a console or coffee table when not in use. â€śYou can then self-ruling up all that space that the dining table steals. At the same time, you can still retain maximum options for entertaining. A panel table can have five variegated sizes in one unit, for example. Flexibility is key!â€ť
We were impressed to find that using smart furniture like this doesnâ€™t midpoint compromising on style, with some really stunning Italian designs in the Spaceman collection, including solid wood, ceramic and cutting-edge finishes.
#2 Wall beds and sofa beds
The second zone that Matthew highlights is the spare bedroom. He says, â€śGuest rooms take up space that is infrequently used. If you need a study to work from home, then stop that bed from hogging space. Turn your guest room into a study using a wall bed or sedentary bed like Slumberdesk. Likewise, you could use a Murphy bed in the master bedroom to create space you can use during the day.â€ť
Another option, he says, is to do yonder with a spare room altogether. Offer your guests a sofa bed instead! â€śSofa beds have come a long way so itâ€™s no longer a second-rate choice. With a real mattress up to 20cm thick (and options including memory foam), you can offer your guests a good nightâ€™s sleep. These come in a range of handmade Italian designs and you will still have a gorgeous and comfortable sofa.â€ť
Sofa beds offer a remarkably flexible option. At Spaceman, they come in six sizes, from single to king size, plus-twin beds, and plane sofa bunk beds. Also, there are numerous designs available, ranging from archetype to funky. They can be customised to add uneaten seats, a chaise longue, or footstools, like any other made-to-order sofa.
Finally, you can segregate from hundreds of fabric and leather options to match the squint to your interior scheme.
#3 Create space in the bedrooms with bunk beds
The final zone Matthew recommends considering are the kids bedrooms. He says: â€śKids need space to play, to sleep, to study, but they canâ€™t do them all at the same time. So using multi-function kids furniture such as bunk beds with integrated desks and a multitude of storage options, you can make their space work harder.
