In our world of small and tiny homes using every possible way to save some space is essential. Flexible furniture, creative storage spaces and functional design is what we need to feel comfy even in the smallest houses and apartments. Using your walls for storage or adjusting your furniture is a great idea, it means that you get additional storage without losing floor space or you can have some foldable furniture that may be hidden when not needed, so smart! Let’s see how to use your walls to advantage.
Wall-mounted desks are very popular space-savers, and they are getting popularity very fast. A wall-mounted desk for your home office or kids’ room allows to save some space as it’s closer to the wall. If you don’t need it often, you can go for a foldable version that can be hidden when not needed, it’s perfect for small homes, which lack a home office nook. Such a solution fits even the tiniest corners, it doubles as a shelf and you can make it yourself or buy a ready one.
Chairs and stools can be adjusted to the wall, too. A tiny entryway? No space for a breakfast nook? Just attach some stools to the wall and you’ll have a seat to put on your shoes or leave your bag, and then you can fold the piece. Make a breakfast nook attaching foldable stools and a table, when you aren’t having a meal, you can hide them.
Cabinets are necessary for storage but they often take too much floor space and make your interior look bulky. There’s a cool idea – just adjust your cabinets to the wall and you’ll get more floor space and an airy and light look. Almost every cabinet can be attached to the wall, and you can win some space anywhere – from your bedroom to your bathroom. Attach sink stands or vanities to the wall and use the floor space underneath.
A wall-mounted nightstand or bedside table will easily accommodate everything you need and will save some floor space. It can be just a piece of plywood or a drawer or a whole cabinet, and you can place door stoppers or a basket for storage under the nightstand. It’s a fantastic solution for a tiny bedroom with no free floor space.
Greenery always adds to the décor but sometimes there’s literally no space to place a planter or two. Just attach your planters to the walls and you can have a whole garden wherever you want. Make a herb garden in the kitchen, create a green corner in your home office and add some planters to the balcony wall.
