Size, as you’ll shortly learn, doesn’t always matter…
Living in a metropolitan city can often prove stressful. Unless you have an ancestral home or a ton of money, chances are, you’re going to have to settle for a small apartment. And with a small space, comes another issue — accommodating furniture.
Before we get to the crux of our argument, let’s talk a little about large furniture. Now, as someone who lives in a small space, it’s important to understand that being practical is more important than making a style statement. A large cupboard that covers half a wall or a couch that takes up most of your living room isn’t the wisest call. Not only will it make your apartment seem smaller, but it’ll also leave you with little or no room to manoeuvre around.
Smaller pieces of furniture, on the other hand, can be sprinkled around the room with ease. In the space that a sofa occupies, you could easily have four stools and a round table, or three bean bags and a small centre table. People have a place to sit comfortably, and they also don’t have to worry about a place to safely place their coffee!
What works best in favour of little furniture is that unlike the big ones, they can be multifunctional. A cupboard will be a cupboard, a couch will be a couch, and a bookshelf will always be a bookshelf. However, a small centre table can work as a makeshift dressing table, or a chair placed between two chairs can be used as a pretend table too. Imagination is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
Jokes aside, there are other important benefits too. The most important of which, undoubtedly, is storage. Clutter is a massive issue with most small homes, making entire rooms seem messy and often inhabitable. That’s where smaller pieces of furniture could save the day.
Seating with storage, for example, is an incredible idea. A bedside table with storage, an even better one! Mark all of these little furniture pieces with and stow your belongings safely, and voila! Little furniture has suddenly made a big, big difference.
