Even though the modern age has changed a significant part of how we think, it still takes time to adjust, adapt, and react. And, when it comes to home appliances like multi-functional furniture, you can’t contemplate enough. Selecting the right yet modern furnishings for the home takes a lot of time, as there are several factors to consider, especially for modular homes.
Might you ponder on questions like “am I moving towards investing in a brand new piece of furniture or choosing slightly used items at defeated prices? Is it important for me to require a 12-seater dining table for the entire family, or would a 4-seater work in such a case?” The tricky part is addressing all these needs without crowding your house with furniture.
When you’re living in a small home, you don’t just think about purpose but also space. The last thing you want is a house full of furniture. Otherwise, you wouldn’t even have enough space to move around. Here are seven multi-functional furniture ideas for your home:
1. Seat by day, bed by night
The classic sofa bed or Futons have always been the most common double-duty furniture pieces for modular homes. It’s a stylish alternative to storing several mattresses in the garage for guests.
2. Mirror on one side, cabinet on the other
Before making a dash to the door, you always want to look your best. Hidden cabinets behind mirrors are a great way to save space while ensuring all your toiletries and beauty products are just within arms reach.
3. Drop-leaf console table
Certain occasions call for longer tables, especially with friends and family. But, storing larger pieces can be a challenge with limited space. Try canvassing for drop-leaf console tables. The table can be folded laterally and collapses into a comfortable table size perfect for any tight space.
4. Wall-mounted tables
Tables can take up a lot of space. But, unfortunately, every home needs it. Whether you’re drawing a masterpiece or entertaining guests, having a table is a must. To save space, try a wall-mounted table. There are many more extended DIY videos online that can help you turn picture frames into foldable hidden tables.
5. Versatile ottomans
Some ottomans today have a built-in storage space, while others are collapsible into five minimalist-style stools. Typically, it smoothly fits together into one when not in use. Not to mention, the chic design also allows you to entertain guests.
6. Extendable coffee tables
Coffee tables are sometimes too low for anything other than storing magazines or coffee table books. There’s just not enough height for you to work on it comfortably. Good thing, furniture manufacturers are twisting it by making it extendable. With this innovative design, you won’t need another working table.
7. Multi-storage pieces
Finding storage space for all your things can be a challenge. A great way to ensure each item has a designated space is to invest in multi-functional storage pieces. Take, for instance, this chair with built-in storage. Now, you don’t have to choose one over the other, as you can have both. Also, you wouldn’t want your things to be scattered around in different parts of the house, right?
Boxed Microwave & Oven
Are you fond of baking and cooking multiple things at once? Well, if that is the case, you should look for an appliance such as this. There are several microwaves and ovens in stores that can be butchered into a wooden frame. No, we do not imply the term literally. It simply means that one can look for a wooden cabinet for a seamless and lavish look.
Quirky Ceiling Fans
Well, this never gets old. If you have plans to make the most of your interiors, do not compromise on ceiling fans. But, wait! When we say ceiling fans, we do not refer to standard ones coated in brown and dull colors, simply to look as if they only exist to provide your space with enough air. A fan should complement your space that comprises pieces of furniture. In such a case, you could always look for quirky options that resemble your personality.
If you’re thinking about why we have been loading your list with kitchen-specific items, ask yourself. This is your best bet to make everything accessible and achievable. A food processor is one of the home appliances that can make your entire life easier. You will save massive chunks of minutes by throwing in veggies to have them automatically chopped in whatever form or type, be it cubes or juliennes.
There are a lot of ways you can incorporate multi-functional furniture into your home. They’re an excellent investment because you’re hitting two birds with one stone. Don’t let the size of your modular home stop you from having all the furniture you need. It just takes a little bit of creativity and out-of-the-box innovation.
