In 2018 the average newly built house in the United States, according to the US Census Bureau, was less than 8,982 square feet. This was a 18.3 percent drop from the 2009 average of 10,994 square feet. As a result, the size of American homes is shrinking, but its value for money is increasing. As a result, multipurpose rooms are becoming increasingly attractive to homeowners across the country.
Instead of removing unnecessary furnishings to create more space, a multi-purpose design adds more functions within the shared space. Check out these 4 simple steps to create the perfect design for multiple rooms.
Find out how much space you need
Each room function has different requirements for space and flexibility. Do you intend to transform an office space into a guest room if necessary? Then you have to make the necessary allocations for a folding or plug-in bed. Would you like to use your dining room as a learning or play center so that the space is not wasted? Then now is the time to make room for all the storage and devices you need to achieve these functions.
Determine all functions that a space should perform. From then on, it will be easier to find parts that fit into the assigned space for these purposes.
Invest in multifunctional furnishings and furniture
Furniture is the main element that gives a room its function. Use furniture that serves multiple purposes to achieve a successful multifunctional design. A shining example of a multifunctional device would be Table tennis tables. In fact, table tennis started out as Game played at the dining table.
These furniture combinations add a lot of modern ergonomics to the equation. These pieces of furniture can turn your dining room into an instant playroom after a family dinner.
Clean up and organize
Once you’ve fully assessed your space, it’s time to remove unnecessary items in the room. Disorder is the enemy of efficiency, and the last thing you expect from your multifunctional space is inefficient. Clean up everything that doesn’t need to be there and use the newly released storage space creatively to store the remaining data.
You can also put wire containers and carrier bags on the walls to keep all the little things. Place shelves and cupboards on bare corners and wall sections.
Style to your taste
Once all of your materials are in place, it’s time to design everything to promote comfort and flow. Aesthetics play a crucial role in this. The right design determines whether your multifunctional bedroom feels stuffy and incoherent or seamless and comfortable. Slim and optimized designs are great for this because they are easier to combine with each other.
Remember to stick to just a few statement pieces and accompany them with smaller pieces so as not to maintain the overall design for your multipurpose room.
