Multifunctional furniture is the need of the present day home-dwellers, mostly because space is not as readily available now as it used to be a few decades ago. Even with all the contemporary interior decor options that you have, in the end, whether a place looks cluttered or not comes down to how much furniture it’s been stuffed with.
Space-saving tables and chairs are suitable choices when your primary concern is to arrange furniture in a small room without making it appear congested.
It could be categorized into several forms, like the chairs could be foldable, collapsible, or created with slots and drawers to store things. A somewhat similar concept can be applied to table designs.
For instance, with a hideaway set of table and chairs, space-saving can be easily achieved. Chairs can be extracted from under a roundtable. A Cowboy kitchen has pantry, table, and benches which can be folded neatly and converted into a cupboard shape when you aren’t using them.
A fold-down bar or drawer, which can be installed outdoors as well as indoors, is very similar to a Cowboy kitchen, except it is smaller and can be used for two to three people only.
You will find table-wall units in the market which are mounted on a wall and aligned with the floor. Some of the models come for long walls, where the table is adorned with couch(s) on one or either sides. You can extend the table and benches when in use and leave it collapsed at other times. Tables with leaves also come with grooves beneath the counter where you can stack the foldable chairs. You can also pick extendable stools instead of chairs and store them under the table.
If you are looking for even better multifunctional space saving tables and chairs, go for the table bed. It’s mainly a wall mount that looks like a cupboard but can be extended into a table as well as a bed.
