Folding furniture

There’s some furniture that we don’t use on a daily basis and use only for certain purposes. For example, extra chairs or benches are used only when we have guests over. If you have a small house and still want to buy extra furniture, it’s best to go for foldable furniture. Some ideas.

  • Foldable chairs
  • Foldable dining table

Tips arrange furniture in small houses

Above, we discussed the different kinds of furniture that you should invest in for small houses. Now, let’s look at some smart tips to maximize the space you have.

Define separate spaces

This may seem ironic to you. You might be wondering - how can you create separate spaces in a place that’s already space-crunched? But you can. If you don’t, you might end up with a house that looks claustrophobic and messy.

Some ways to define spaces within a small space: Place a bookshelf in between your dining area and living room. If you have an open kitchen, place a display rack or crockery rack in between. Use plants and pots to delineate spaces.

Make use of unused spaces

There are many spaces in the house that don’t get used. For example, the back of the doors, the space under staircases, top of cupboards, etc. You can make use of these spaces in many ways. You can use it to store extra furniture such as storage cabinets. Create display units with glass doors in these spaces. Place small bookshelves or side tables like night stands. How you’ll make use of the unique unused spaces in your tiny house depends on your creativity and intelligence.

Go vertical

Having less space in the house means having less floor space. But you have your walls. So go vertical when planning your furniture. Instead of a broad, horizontal TV unit or bookshelf, go for one that’s vertical. That way it’ll occupy less space. Another way to make use of vertical space is to place one shelf over the other, and you have a vertical storage space.
