Multifunctional furniture for small spaces is just that, multifunctional. That’s all well and good, but it also tends to be bulkier than ordinary furniture and if you’re living in a small house or apartment, multifunctional furniture may be too big for your space. Very often, to make multifunctional furniture work in a small space, you need to edit other items in the room and remove other furnishings. Sometimes this is a great way to boost function while creating minimalist design, but in other cases, multifunctional furniture may not support your real life needs.

Here are a few tips to consider before you shell out money for that great big multifunctional furniture for small spaces.

Get Real – You may be thrilled to find a piece of furniture for the bedroom that provides enough space to hold up to twenty business suits and blouses along with compartments to organize your purses, shoes and accessories. But will it fit in the bedroom without having to remove or downsize the bed? It’s important to be realistic, and in a bedroom that means that you need space for a bed and a dresser or chest to hold other clothing. If buying this multifunctional storage unit means that you have to sleep on the couch, it will lose its luster before you’ve finished paying for it.

Be Prepared to Part with Some Furnishings – In most cases, adding a multifunctional piece to a room means that you will have to remove other furniture to either make room for it or to keep the room from looking too cluttered. It might be possible to downsize other items to smaller versions to achieve this goal; for example, you could shift from a large sectional to a smaller regular size couch or eliminate your wine wall hangings or other metal wall decor to add extra wall space where an armoire can be placed.

Combine Function with Style – Multifunctional pieces that clash with your existing style won’t be worth purchasing. Instead, look for ways to capture the contemporary look you want, for example, with the function you need. This might mean choosing a modern hall bench with under-the-lid storage, coat hooks and a mirror to add function and style to your foyer. Or you may choose a contemporary bookcase that is open on both sides to increase storage in two spaces while adding a modern room divider.

Get Creative with Furniture Placement – Placing furniture along the wall and around the room is a common arrangement but may not support the function of your room. You may gain more function, for instance, by adding a corner style entertainment unit to your living room. It can hold your TV and all your electronic gear and leave the center of the room open for entertaining while still making it easy and convenient to kick back and watch TV or listen to music at other times.

Go for Spaciousness – The whole purpose of multifunctional furniture is to add space to a room. You can’t achieve this goal if you try to cram the new piece of furniture in the room along with everything else that you own. When you find a piece of furniture that is designed to replace several pieces of furniture, take the next step and get rid of those pieces that is was intended to replace so that the room looks spacious and still functions as needed.
