Have a high-traffic dining room? For a dining room that has an exterior door, add some entryway items to add functionality in the space. Select a durable runner that stands up to foot traffic, a bench, and a coat rack to provide a place to unload when you get home. (You have to drop your stuff off somewhere -- might as well make it pretty!)
Spark a child's creativity in their very own bedroom play corner. A kids teepee is a great little escape for a little one to explore space and have a cozy spot to read a book. A child's size table and chairs is perfect for tea parties and playdough parties alike!
There isn't always room for a full cabinet in a dining room, so for this small space, we added a bar car for entertainment needs. Keep the style simple with a few decanters and add a bit of green and bling with a potted plant in a gold container. For our black and white color palette, we chose a black metal bar cart with mirrored shelves.
Small squarefootage does not need to equal small design. This jewel toned industrial office makes the best use of its small footprint by incorporating a "T" layout. This unique layout allows for 3 workspaces in an area that would traditionally only hold two.
Many people don’t have the luxury of separate spaces for a home office and guest bedroom. But this room is proof that a multi-purpose space like this can be quite chic! Tucking your desk under built-in shelves creates a distinct workspace. And opting for a daybed rather than a traditional bed makes the space feel less dual-purpose when not hosting guests.
When working with limited space, try finding pieces that can serve multiple purposes. An industrial desk brings office functionality to your living room but can also be used as a side table when sitting on the sofa. A pair of poufs double as extra seats when friends are over!
Trying to fit a lot into a small space? In this ultra-green traditional-style bedroom, having more than just a bed is no problem with the use of a leaning desk. It's efficient, has a small footprint, and provides vertical storage- all great things when you don't have much room to work with.
The seating area in this contemporary bedroom uses an earthy bronze in the accents to help create contrast and bring out the warm tones of the blush-colored velvet chairs. The low sitting chairs are inviting and made for relaxing. Together these elements make the perfect reading nook or conversation space. Artwork brings in the finishing touches to the space.
The Industry Bench in our entryway provides a place to unload bags or take off shoes while the wall-mounted coat rack offers a place to keep them tidy. This bench can do double duty while entertaining by acting as extra seating. It could even be moved over to the table for a dinner party or fun game of cards!
Do you and your partner both need at-home work stations? And space to host guests? And only have one room in your house to spare for all these uses? Relax — you can create a multi-purpose room that suites all these needs. For hosting guests, opt for a daybed for day-to-day versatility. Then place desks across the room from each other so you each have your own workspace — but opt for matching chairs for a more cohesive look.
