Multi-Functional Tables to Save Space

September 20, 2019
A multi-functional table can come in handy on more than one occasion and, most importantly, it'll save you space.

In our post today, we want to fill you in on multi-functional tables that work perfectly in small spaces. Use your ingenuity and imagination to make your home look more spacious than it actually is!

Living in a small home is a reality that many people can relate to. And it’s all the more common if you live in a big city. Living near the center of a city means letting go of space. And sometimes, that can be a problem. Trying to manage a limited amount of functional space is a true headache.

What will work best? Which colors should you use to make your home look bigger? Which furniture pieces will work best? Many of these questions pop in mind and sometimes, never find an answer. But don’t worry; we have a solution for your table.

Make the most of space

Before you set up any piece of furniture, you should first take a good look at the functional space you have available. You need to know how many square meters you can use for your furniture and how many you should leave free.

Thus, your furniture plays a crucial role. Aside from giving your home personality, your pieces should make your home seem orderly and spacious. The main problem with many small homes is that they don’t make the most of the nooks and crannies.

You can find furniture pieces that are not only light and space-efficient, but also multi-functional.

Lift-top coffee tables

Lift-top coffee tables are one of our favorite options for small homes. You can find them anywhere. They’re a great choice because they help you save plenty of space.

When the table is closed, you can use it as a regular coffee table to enjoy a cup of coffee, read, use your computer or whatever! But when you lift it open it works perfectly as a dining table to enjoy lunch, dinner or brunch with friends. Underneath the table, you’ll find a shelf that is perfect for holding your everyday objects such as books and magazines or simple decor accessories such as decorative stones, candles or potpourri.

These lift-top coffee tables will make your life much easier and help you solve your space issue once and for all. But keep in mind that not all models will be high enough to work as a dining table. However, they’re perfect for small apartments.

Nesting tables

We’re seeing nesting tables everywhere in home decor magazines. If there was one top trend for tables, these are it!

Nesting tables are amazing for apartments that need a few centimeters more space. These tables come in a set that fit over each other like a set of matryoshka dolls. Use as many tables in your set as you want, as long you have the space for them of course. In addition to gaining space, they’re a perfect decor element as well. Cool idea, right?

Collapsible tables

Collapsible tables are another great trend this season. While they might have been popular choices for parties or important events in the past, they’re becoming just as useful for small apartments today.

Aside from saving space by simply collapsing the table when not in use, it can add a modern feel to your home decor.

Or, you can also find tables with pull-out sides. You can close them and push the table against a wall when not in use without taking up any space. And when you want, pull out the sides to seat as many guests you have over. It’s most definitely the perfect piece for small living rooms.

As you’ve read with us today, saving space isn’t as complicated with these helpful pieces. You just need to choose the right ones that will best suit your home. Your living room will look perfect!
