Today most average homes are built with a limitation of space. Except for many residential areas with single-family homes or luxury apartments, most have to adapt to relatively small houses where at least two people live. And if there are children, the space requirement increases further. For this reason, it is essential not only to take advantage of every square centimeter but to have practical and functional furniture that can even offer multiple uses in a single element. 

We offer a choice of 18 multifunctional furnishings that can give you more than a pinch when capitalising on the space available at home. Want to see our ideas? Join us!

Homify is full of great furniture and industrial design objects, just have a look through our many pages of inspiration!

1. A bookcase with a desk

To perform administrative chores or write certain documents this idea offers a practical and convenient concept by integrating a desk inside a shelf. 

2. The closet bed

It has always been said that the gap under the bed can be utilised better. You can place drawers or other storage systems for storing, for example blankets, quilts and bedding.

3. The kitchen

In many apartments the kitchen shares space with the living room. A good way to divide both environments is to hide the kitchen behind a few panels that open and close.

If you're looking to decorate a modern or contemporary home such as this one, you'll want your furnishings to match your modern inspirations!

4. A desk and more

With recycled wood you can dare to design your own desk! This will also serve to keep other objects, boxes or cardboard, etc;

5. Coffee table with some extras

If you do not want to do without a coffee table in the living room, you can choose some designs that use the space below to add some extra storage such as removable drawers.

6. A desk against the wall

Folding furniture is one of the most functional and practical designs that exists. This desktop is folded against the wall and barely takes up space.

7. Furniture that divides

To separate environments, you can also take advantage of the dimensions of some furniture, such as bookcases, where both sides have different functionality for each environment; They can be a desktop or a library.

8. The store-it-all

Attentive design. A table under the dash offers plenty of holes to store desktop accessories, stationery, documents, spare parts, etc; A practical solution to have on hand everything you need.

9. A convertible coffee table

Before, we were talking about taking advantage of the coffee tables. In this design we that part of its surface rises to create a desk or dining area. Underneath both offers some space for books, or accessories.

10. Under the bed there are no ghosts

There's only so much storage space with children. And if not, look at this library, with staircase, on which is placed within the bed. We won both meters and chased away the ghosts under the bed.

11. The shelf desktop

Perfect for tablets, laptops or any other mobile device, this extended desktop shelf is perfect for those that need a quick place to do some planning!

12. And for children, practical solutions

This underbed solution is perfect for storing toys and is also accessible for children so they can participate in the clean-up!

13. The TV cabinet

No need to choose a large wall or furnishing that occupies an entire wall; with this design, there is enough space for the television, other electronic devices and also for books and portraits.

14. A multipurpose shoe area

Muuto – Wandhaken The Dots


Whether it placed at the entrance of the house, in the entrance hall, or bedroom this unit offers many possibilities, not only as a shoe area, but also as an accessory to leave keys, wallets, phones and other personal items.

15. A kitchen island

While it is not integrated into the furniture of the kitchen it was designed, incorporating softer elements and adds more versatility to the kitchen. It provides more work surfaces and storage space.

16. Bunk bed and desk

In the bedrooms, space can beexploited much more than we initially thought. An example is this structure of bunks with a built-in desk with shelves, leaving a compact and organised space.

17. Extendable kitchen table

To save space in the  kitchen at lunchtime, one of the most common proposals are the tables with extendable wings to accommodate one or two persons.

18. The washing machine in the bathroom cabinet

If you do not have enough room in the kitchen for the washing machine or want to take advantage otherwise you can place it in the bathroom.
