Adding More Space to your Small Place

  • Blog

94 years ago, a man named Murphy designed a folding wall bed that added space and multipurpose to a small New York apartment. The idea spread like wildfire. We believe in staying true to our space saving roots so we’ve compiled a list of the best ways to add More Space to your small Place.

Make your own space. When faced with the challenge of storing your items in small space, you’ll be surprised at what you can do. Adding risers to a bed is a great way to add extra storage, canned goods can easily be stored on a rack in the garage and a linen closet can double as a closet for even more space.

Give rooms dual purpose. Just because the number of rooms you have are limited doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice the rooms you want. Adding a Murphy Bed can instantly double add dual purpose to any room. The Jefferson Library Bed can be turn one room into a guest bedroom and a library. Add a table and chairs and your room can triple as a dining room.

Get creative. With a trip to your local home store, items you already own can start to serve multiple purposes. Coffee tables can convert to game tables for children and a china hutch can double as a fold down writing desk.  Add a Lazy Susan in a bathroom cabinet to hold beauty products and a tension rod under the kitchen sink to hang cleaning products.
