Smart Space Management: Room Combos

Last Updated on November 4, 2021 by Kravelv

Maximizing your available home space can be limiting, as you might not have a lot of room to work with. It’s possible to make the most out of your rooms and ensure that your home feels stylish. While it is possible to clean out your home thoroughly and gain some space that way, it will only be good for a short while. You should look into combining a couple of rooms into one.

Combine Living Room and a Hidden Office

Your living room can be used for more if you have a bit of spare space to work with. Depending on the size of the room, you can transform a small part of it into an office that you can easily hide. Be mindful of the arrangement in the room, otherwise you’ll have to move most of your furniture around if you need to work. Don’t forget that you can use bookshelves to separate a living room, creating a clearly divided corner for your office. Try to avoid clutter by clearly defining a role for each piece of furniture and decorative item in your living room.

Do You Want a Versatile Dining Space?

If you have a big family, it’s going to be problematic to gather everyone for a meal, but it’s not impossible. A good-looking dining room shouldn’t be a luxury, even if you have little space to spare, all you have to do is make use of folding tables and put them away when they’re not in use. That way, you can have a portable dining room waiting to be set up when you have a lot of people to gather around the table. In essence, you can have it set up in any room where you find enough space to host the get-together.

The Pantry Laundry Room

Most people tend to create a bathroom and laundry room combo, which can be effective. However, you can make use of your pantry as well, but only if you make sure that your home has good ventilation. Otherwise, you might have the smell of damp clothes linger around for far too long. You can save up even more space by purchasing a washing machine and a dryer combo, which is easy to fit in almost any small space.

Expand Your Bedroom

If you are running low on space but wish to have enough room to retreat to when you want to handle bills or just simply read, it will be necessary to combine two spaces. The bedroom and study combo will be perfect, as it will allow you to have plenty of privacy and get on with your work. However, you need to make sure that your mattress will not be too big or it might make your bedroom appear smaller. Owing to a staggering selection, you should search for mattresses online to score good deals.

A Crafty Guest Room

Even though it can be argued that a guest room shouldn’t be transformed into a more useful one, it could be a creative hub. You can fit your guest room with multipurpose tables and storage units which can help you put away all your things once you are done with your crafts projects. On the other hand, it will be a space where you can come to and get your creative juices flowing, when you need some inspiration.

Combining two functions into one can be a lifesaver for some people as they simply don’t have enough room in their homes to spare. However, thanks to multipurpose furniture it’s easier than ever to transform a part of your room into something else. Keep in mind not to go with completely opposite functions as they will often result in chaos and clutter, which could defeat the purpose of clever space management.
