Let’s face it: with the state of property prices these days, most of us don’t have the luxury of having a lot of space. And so, one of the best ways to maximise what little room we do have is by using multifunctional furniture. In other words, pieces that do two or more things.
Ahead, we share a few of our favourite such pieces. Think bookcases that fold down into tables, beds with clever, built-in storage and a couch-side table that converts into a fully-sized one when you’re ready to eat. These pieces not only look nice but make the most of your space too.
