Make your rooms work harder by working as more than one space. A room like this could easily serve as a library, guest parlor, breakfast table, work station, conference room, dinner party hors d'ouvres station. You get the point.
Rethink your laundry room. Adding a counter like this one can turn a simple washing area into a multipurpose utilitarian space.
Rethink the kitchen table. In a small space for one, you may realize that you don't need an entire dining hall. Why not add a sleek tall table such as this one, and use it for more than just mealtime?
When a guest room doesn't exist and private space is limited, consider the value of adding a curtain around a sleeping area. Easy to take on and off of casters, such a curtain will add an instant visual barrier.
If a separate work space can't be effectively carved out without driving you crazy, consider how this dining table easily doubles as a work table. Nearby storage can hide documents.
Similarly, using the dead space along a bedroom wall can become a private reading corner. This lamp and table work for both the bed and window seat.
The right furniture in a studio apartment can serve several purposes. This couch easily becomes a bed, and the accompanying armoire can hold a variety of items.
Here's another take on a living space with much potential for varied usage.
An elegant sitting room can become a private guest room when this couch folds out into a bed.
Provide your guests with the luxury of a full bar, without taking up too much room. A small and vertical space like this is understated and elegant.
Even a simple butler's wheeled cart can make a statement without overtaking your space.
And making the most of a space for you doesn't have to mean filling every corner. This simple spot respects the visual quiet needed to balance the bookshelves, and provides an effective private reading corner.
