Happy Monday, fellow design lovers! If you’re anything like most of our beloved inner-city clients, you understand the struggles that come with small-space living. One of the biggest woes? Trying to create functional dining and work spaces that don’t encroach on your limited living space (TV trays anyone?). But no need to despair because we’ve got you covered with this week’s edition of Small Space, Big Living! Chock full of clever work surface solutions, we’ll have you planning dinner parties and home offices in no time at all…
1. Discreet Dining Table
Ever tried hosting a dinner party without a dining table? It’s less than ideal… But there IS a small-space-friendly alternative to balancing a plate on your knees. Behold, this jack-of-all trades, half mirror-half table combo! This piece is cleverly disguised as a stylish mirror in its down time and is easily transformed into a stylish and minimalist dining table on demand. Bon appetite!
2. Subtle Office Space
At some point, all home office workers have hunkered down on the sofa, hunched over a laptop trying not to be distracted by the TV. But digging pens out of couch cushions is no longer an excuse for missed deadlines! For anyone who works from home, a dedicated desk space is important. Behold: this dainty desk that folds up into a wall-mounted shelf. Not only does it come with built in shelves and file storage, this self-storing piece takes up ZERO floor space when closed up. Now you can keep all of your workplace essentials in one handy spot and stash it out of sight when your work day is done!
3. Sleek Changing Station
This modern baby changing table by Bybo is ideal for those raising a family in tight quarters and features modern Swedish design. We love that the table doesn’t hog precious floor space and comes with built-in shelving. When not in use, fold the table up and out of the way, just make sure to dispose of any stinky surprises first!
4. Secret Laundry Station
In a small home, a laundry space is the first luxury to get the axe! This fold-out table is great for ironing and folding clothes. While customizing a large wall of built-in cabinets can be costly and hard on the pocketbook, adding in a hidden ironing board can be a simple modification in most small spaces. Now you can stop ironing on the bed because, let’s face it, your friends can tell.
And there you have it – four tidy folding table solutions for your tiny home that are both practical and beautiful!
