5 Must Have Pieces Of Space Saving Furniture

If you living in a small home, apartment or dorm then that means your space is limited and my guess is you're probably looking for new ways to save space whenever you can. The good news is there's plenty of space saving furniture out there. The bad news is that sometimes it's not so easy to find it. So, to make situation a lot easier... let's talk about 5 must-have pieces of space saving furniture that could aid in saving you substantial amounts of space around your home...


Although there are other space saving for the kitchen to brag about, one of the top space saving items you could get for your kitchen is an under-the-cabinet trash can. Why? Well, because there's really no need for a trash can to sit out in the open looking awkward and ugly while it takes up unnecessary space. What's the point in that when you can have it stashed away beneath a cabinet or even hidden away in a closet (unseen)?

And not only are they handy because they are concealed, you'll find that many under-the-cabinet trash cans will actually save you money. Since many of them use grocery bags you'll find yourself saving a few coins here and there because you no longer have to spend as much money on trash bags. Instead, you'll get a nice supply of grocery bags for free every time you go shopping for other items for your home.

Dining Room

Choices for your dining are as equally beneficial as your kitchen, if not more. A top item for the dining room will always be space saving dining room tables. In my opinion the best sort to come by have always been dining room tables that fold down. To be more specific, the type of dining room tables I have in mind are gate leg dining tables. Gate leg dining tables are simply dining tables that have two drop leafs: one on each side of the table. They fold down to accommodate minimal amounts of space and open up to accommodate a fair amount of guests. So they make it simple for you if need to serve both small and large parties alike.


One of my favorite picks for the bedroom is the lingerie chest. Why? Well, because although it's built to accommodate lingerie... it can also accommodate other garments that you need to stow away. It's great for small bedrooms when you don't have much space to go on and you find that a dresser would be too large. Lingerie chests are narrow and tall, which makes it easy to place them just about anywhere in your bedroom. And they are even convenient if you find you don't have enough room store one in your bedroom but can make room for one in your closet.

Living Room

Although I consider small coffee tables a top choice, what's great for each living room is also an individual experience. Occasionally one home owner may find that a larger coffee table looks best while another finds the opposite to be true. So, if a small one would serve you well... one of my favorite choices is the small scale version of your basic coffee table.

Small scales version typically range around these sizes: square and round coffee tables will generally range around 30" W x 30" L or in diameter. Anything larger than that may not be considered small. Rectangular and oval coffee tables will typically range around 30-40" L and 18-21" W.


The bathroom is a lot like the kitchen... items can run amuck. So, one of my favorite bathroom space savers and organizers are wall-mounted cabinets. Not only do they help you keep your items from wandering all over the place and getting in the way, but they also free up floor space so it's almost like not having anything there at all. And an additional benefit is that often you can place something on top, like a beautiful silk flower, to aid to the decor and charm of your small bathroom.
