Double Dose of Fab: Dual Purpose Furniture
Sofa bed from homestheticsA daybed is a little different from a sofa bed... and just as useful! It's easier to convert because you don't have to remove cushions and lift. It can be used as a chaise...a bed...and a room divider! Yes, that's right! If you place it between seating areas you can divide your room two, or separate the seating area from walking area. So clever!
Daybed from 1st DibsI LOVE ottomans. They are great for putting your feet up, for additional seating, and if you place a tray on top they can also be used as coffee tables! If you find one on casters you can tuck it under another table, or move it into a corner of the room until you're ready to use it. Very useful!
Ellsworth ottoman from HorchowDid you know you can use dining tables for more than one purpose? Obviously we use them for eating, but you can also use it as a serving table, or a work station. If you have a dining table with storage you can tuck away all those wine bottles you have in storage.
Belmont Dining Table from Crate and BarrelBookcases have their obvious use...storage for books! But if you think outside of the box...which I love to do...you can get more for your money. Some bookcases pull out and can turn into a desk...and some can be used as room dividers. This is perfect for small spaces and studio apartments.
Sloane leaning desk from Crate and BarrelGetting the most out of your furniture seems difficult but it's actually quite simple...and much more fun than you think! What's your favorite dual purpose furniture piece? Is there anything missing from my list you'd like to add?
