I’ve lived in my fair share of small spaces. So, I know first hand how difficult it can be to pick, find, and buy the right functional furniture to accommodate your needs without making your home feel cluttered, stuffed, and lacking room to move, especially when you like to have guests over to entertain.
So, here are a few pieces and tips to help you design and add some functionality to your small space and friendly for entertaining.
- Shelf Folding Bookcase – A folding bookcase, like this Linon Dolce Folding Bookshelf from Target, has large larges shelves which are perfect for displaying large books, pictures, and figurines. Also, this bookshelf easily folds down for compact storage and moving around for more room for entertaining.
- Nesting Tables – I love nesting tables! Nesting tables are like the Russian dolls of furniture. They fit perfectly in small spaces and nest smaller tables, usually underneath the larger version. In case you need every table space for company, crafts, of work, you have the ability to accommodate yours and others’ need for more table room. Personally, I love this nesting coffee table from Pottery Barn. A coffee table with the option for end tables or extra space for guests.
- Storage Ottoman – Storage ottoman’s offer not only extra storage, but style and seating. When it comes to ottomans, I always say you should find one that has a nice design aesthetic, such as this tufted and footed ottoman from Wayfield.
- Sturdy TV Stand – Despite your lack of space, you do need at least “heavy” piece of furniture and I usually like to focus on a sturdy TV stand with plenty of hidden storage for DVD and equipment. Clean lines and minimal, but distinguished details are always great, just like Fung TV stand from Pier 1.
