Looking for the best space-saving furniture to save space in your home? These are the products you should look out for:
When you're not using something, if you can fold it away and make it smaller, you are immediately freeing up valuable space in your home. Look for chairs that fold up nice and slim that you can tuck away under a sofa or in the broom cupboard when not needed. Folding chairs are right at the top of the best space-saving furniture list.
,And, alongside folding chairs, you need a folding table. Again, fold up into less than half its unfolded surface area and tuck away behind a door or under a bed when not in use. Even if you have a permanently on show table and chairs, an additional folding table and a few folding chairs can be bought out when you need to feed a few more people. Everyone should entertain once in a while, however, small your space.
Who knew? You can even get folding armchairs. So, if you live in a studio apartment and can't accommodate a dining area and a seating area at the same time, you can fold up your armchairs while the dining table is out and vice versa.
,Folding beds that fold up into the wall when not in use are a brilliant way to free up floor space during the day. The good ones are pricey, but it's worth paying that bit extra for a mechanism that you can be confident won't fail.
A bed that folds away into a sofa – a sofabed
Sofabeds are another brilliant solution for bedrooms that need to double up as living spaces or living spaces that need to become a guest room on occasion. Look for one that has space to store the bedding within its structure too.
Folding side tables
You're probably noticing a theme here: the best space-saving furniture generally folds up into something smaller when not in use. Side tables whose legs fold up and have a separate tray top are pretty easy to find and one of these can be bought out and used as a perch for a laptop or drinks, when required.
