1. Mirrors for Doors

Mirrors are often more versatile than we think. It makes the floor look extended beyond the wall and gives an illusion of extra floor space. Using mirrors for a pair of shoe cabinet doors not only helps you achieve that but poses as a convenience too. You can easily check if your outfit is good to go and maybe snap a #ootd photo!

3. Built-Ins

As we all know, sometimes it can be a challenge trying to beautify bare spaces. However, this problem can be easily solved with built-ins! Form follows function with built-ins which allows you to make most of your room walls. It doesn’t have to be rectangle or square; it could be circles or even hexagons. Add dividers between the shelves to give it a quirky style.

5. Glass Partitions

The sliding glass doors that acts as a partition adds pizzazz to the room. It would seem like there’s a balcony when it is actually just a part of the room that’s being separated. You can also transfer some things into the “balcony” to make your room look less cluttered. It is an unconventional design and a fun idea that we have not seen in many homes yet!

Gone are the days when people put a million things under their beds only to collect dust. Now you can easily store them within the platform and drawers that can be installed at the side for easy access. Platform beds are not only ideal for space planning but also great in enhancing the appearance of your room. Besides, you can stand on your bed and sing at the top of your lungs. The stage is all yours!

Moving tables are essentially one of the most versatile furniture ever. Have one over your bed on days when you are too lazy to move; having meals in bed are now a thing, you can also grab your lappy and watch the latest dramas, get some snooze time in between. When you suddenly jolt awake from your nap remembering that pile of work that's incomplete, this moving table is going to come in handy.

11. Hanging Furniture

Having hanging furniture automatically adds playfulness to your home. It eases up the environment and provides more ventilation. Needless to say, it would be a lighter job to sweep and mop the floor without having to go around the legs of the table. Now I foresee not only hanging tables but beds too!
