  • 2-in-1 furniture could be anything in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom that does 2 jobs- 1) play the role it is meant to, and 2) give you something more like storage or any other function
  • Good furniture also means that you can keep it hidden unless it is needed. You pull it out when required
  • This is the best way to save money as well as space
  • Serving a variety of purposes is the key!
  • Another thing is to buy furniture that you can conveniently put away when it is not being used. That too, without eating into FLOOR-SPACE
  • When planning furniture or interiors, always think about HOW TO SAVE SQUARE FOOT SPACE on the floor
  • Double-duty or 2-in-1 furniture can actually be used for more purposes than one!
  • Example of such Space-saving furniture includes bed with storage, sofa cum bed, seating underneath storage, bed with storage against the wall

  • Over-sized items like furniture are good to give a sense of space!
  • Items like a bed need NOT be down-scaled. Here BIG is better!
  • You don’t have to hesitate to embrace big furniture in a small apartment where living spaces are less
  • For instance, a big bed tricks the eyes into believing that the room is big. The other items could be on the lesser side with a big bed in a smaller room
  • Also, you could have the big bed rolling up against the wall if you want to convert your bedroom into a work-room
  • Another way to trick the mind is to have large rugs which trick the eye into thinking that the bedroom is big
  • Few items like a big bed also give you a sense of grandiose living
  • So, you need not be scared while selecting a big king-sized bed. It will actually give you a new-age, stylish and warm feeling in your bedroom

  • Dullness goes away when you have plenty of natural light
  • Make sure to buy a home with plenty of natural and electric-lit lights
  • The home needs to have plenty of provisions for adequate lighting
  • While buying a home, look for dark spots, and make sure you get your builder to cover those areas with adequate lighting provisions
  • Long windows and doors open up a small space and allow for natural light to soak the space! Even Vaastu shastra has emphasized the importance of natural light and good ventilation unequivocally!
  • Light creates a feeling of spaciousness, and also makes every nook and corner of a room visible
  • Light brightens up the mood, and is essential for human wellbeing and cheerfulness!
  • With the entire space soaked in light, you get a feeling of unparalleled warmth and tranquillity!
  • Wherever natural light is inadequate, you must put additional light fixtures. Some extra lights like string lights, fairy lights, pendant lighting, or wall sconces are extremely helpful!

4. Allow free movement by keeping the floor space uncluttered and less furniture

  • Lesser the obstacles on the floor, the easier it is to navigate and move around
  • Lesser furniture on the floor, a free-flowing home makes the home seem bigger
  • With lesser obstacles, living in the home gets easier
  • Keep the middle of the room free of clutter. The lesser it is crowded in the middle of the room, the more spacious it looks
  • With a free-flowing clear floor, you can move around freely
  • One way to make this happen is to push large items like sofas, chairs, or beds against the walls
  • Additional storage can be created by having a shelf behind the furniture item

5. Using vertical spaces & corners in the rooms

  • Small apartments with lesser square foot spaces tend to get clogged with furniture on the floor
  • The solution is to GO VERTICAL and use the UNUSED CORNERS of the rooms for storage as well as other functional needs
  • Furniture on the ground occupies the floor. So, with furniture items on the floor, it becomes unavailable to you. When the floor is no longer visible to the eyes, it is no longer available to you
  • Space-saving gadgets and furniture come to the rescue to make floor space available to you e.g. TV mounting units, shelves, cabinets, bookcases, wall-mounted desks & tables, and multi-purpose furniture stuck on the walls
  • Such furniture on the walls frees up space on the ground
  • By using vertical spaces, you get a beautiful illusion of a high ceiling which gives you a feel of more space

6. Playing with colors and mirrors to create more space
