Living in a smaller home has many perks–easier to keep clean, cheaper to furnish, and more time spent in cozy quarters with your spouse or kids–but there can also be some challenges to small-space living that require more creativity than a more spacious space would.
Making bedrooms multifunctional is a great way to add creative space to your home, and they are all much cheaper than moving to a larger location! Today, we are focusing specifically on bedrooms, and how you can make them multifunctional in your small space with Omaha Self Storage Prices.
Murphy beds can also be called a wall bed, a fold down bed, or a pull down bed, and it simply refers to a bed that is hinged to the wall on one end so it can be folded up or down. When you need space for guests in the kids’ playroom or home office, a murphy bed is a great option that is much more comfortable than an air mattress but won’t take up space when not in use. These can also be used in kids’ rooms, to give them a space to play during the day, but can fold down for sleeping at night.
Look around your bedrooms for unused corners, and utilize those with a variety of corner friendly furniture like entertainment centers, desks, bookcases, accent tables, sectionals, and even changing tables!
Affectionately known as a “cloffice”, using a closet area for a home office is a great way to keep the clutter contained and out of your normal living spaces, and doors or curtains can be used to close it off when not in use. This is a great option in a guest room or even a master bedroom that is empty during the day. There are many simple ways to make this work, from simply sticking a desk and chair into the closet, to more elaborate custom-built floating wood shelves and a desktop.
Loft Bunk Beds or Daybeds
If you have multiple kids in a room, bunk beds are a classic solution to save space, but if you want everyone to have their own “area” in a small room or simply need a way to make a tiny space serve two purposes, a loft bunk bed offers a high bed for sleeping and a space underneath for a desk, toys, or a dresser. This can be a great way to use vertical space in a small room and not sacrifice floor space.
Daybeds are another great option for multifunction, as they allow a place to sleep but have a lot of storage underneath that can help the bedroom double as an easy-to-clean-up playroom.
Hopefully this gives you a great start in transforming some of your spaces into areas that can function in more than one way, saving your sanity and keeping your small home a liveable place. Of course, all the redesigning in the world won’t help those areas where there’s just too much unneeded stuff–that’s where we can help!
