3 Ways to Make a Small Space Multifunctional


Most of us have had to deal with a small space in our home at some point in our life, whether it's an awkward nook in your house or maybe you live in a small city condo. Jo Alcorn joined Steven and Chris to show us how you can make one room serve many purposes to maximize your space.

Jo says:"One of the biggest questions I get is how to maximize small spaces. Working with a limited amount of space can often scare off a lot of people because they assume they won't be able to get full use out of it BUT with a little creativity, small spaces can actually be easier to design, even more so than larger spaces. Seriously! Over the past few years, retailers and manufactures have been more accommodating by creating a variety of pieces that are multifunctional. This allows you to get the most out of each room - make those rooms work for you! An office can function as a reading nook or a dining area and a living room can turn into a guest bedroom - it really can be easy, just think about these 3 things before you get planning."

Jo's Top 3 Tips for Creating Your Own Dual-Purpose Room

1. Space plan properly - measure, measure, measure! 2. Use light, moveable furniture where possible - wheels work wonders. 3. Source multifunctional pieces of furniture for your room.

  1. The swivel coffee table is so cute partnered with that brown carpet. This will surely save up a lot of space in a room. But that does not mean that you can already avoid carpet stains. And if the carpet got stained be sure to hire the best carpet cleaners Cape Coral. My sister said they are very keen in their work and they do work with compassion. They see to it that the fabric would not be damaged and they take Fort Myers carpet cleaning seriously for the bacteria living on it may cause serious disease.

  2. I saw that chair bed in IKEA. It is aslo practical to open.

  3. I like your Sofa Designs.It is compact and cute.
