Finding the Best Furniture for Small Spaces

If you live in a small home or apartment, then you may feel like you’re unable to furnish your home the way you want. But living in a small space doesn’t mean you can’t decorate or have nice furnishings; it just means you have to be thoughtful about the furniture you choose, finding pieces that complement — not clutter — the room. When finding furniture for small spaces, look to some of these ideas.

Nesting Tables

Nesting tables stack underneath each other, giving you the versatility to use as many or as few as you need. These tables are especially handy if you’re entertaining and need table space to accommodate your guests but don’t normally have the extra space for tables. For a stylish option, try the Ridley Nesting Tables.

Corner Desk

You don’t need a lot of room to set up a home office. When you’re shopping for computer desks for small spaces, look for compact corner desks that sit flush against the wall, or consider the Bink Laptop Table, which offers space for your laptop without overtaking the room.

Clothing Rack

Many small apartments are seriously lacking in closet space, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to downsize your wardrobe. Make up for the lack of space with a stylish clothing rack instead. Search for one with shelves on the bottom so you can store shoes or out-of-season clothes.

Folding Dining Table

Don’t have the space for a full-size dining table? That doesn’t mean you need to go without. Make the most of the room you have with a folding table, like the flip-top Conal Dining Table. This space-saving table folds down to fit against the wall and resembles a hallway table or sideboard in this position. When necessary, you can fold it out, transforming it into a full-size dining table.


Wall-Mounted Rack

Storing your pots and pans requires a significant amount of cabinet space. Rather than take up precious square footage, hang these items on a wall-mounted rack. Many racks offer more than enough hooks for your cookware, and some even come with shelves so you can keep other items handy.

Storage Ottoman

Whether you want extra surface space for drinks and snacks while you’re watching TV, need extra seating when guests arrive, or simply want a place to put your feet up, an ottoman fits the bill. Pick a hollow ottoman with storage space inside so you can stash blankets, kids’ toys, or board games.
