Get smarter with space with solutions from Häfele
Compact Living is all about optimising your customers’ space, especially when they live in or move into smaller homes, or co-habit with other people.
Here in Britain our houses are among the smallest in Europe, with an average floor space of just 76sq m, compared to 137sq m in Denmark, for example. With houses getting smaller and homeowners prioritising location over square footage, using space efficiently should be a fundamental tenet of residential design.
You can bring more life per m² in even the most compact of living environments by incorporating innovative solutions into your design that help you to get smarter with space. These could include audio solutions, concealed storage or sliding doors, which use less space than hinged doors. For example, by encouraging your customers to replace doors with sliding, pivot or pocket systems, you could help them to free up more floor space but still keep the option of closing off separate areas as desired.
Necessity isn’t the only driver behind this increasingly popular trend. In fact, these solutions are not only space-optimising but can also bring a highly desirable aesthetic to a design, as well as add an impressive wow-factor finish.
Here at Häfele, More life per M² is our company ethos, and we have thousands of products and solutions that can help your customers get the most out of their space. Here are a few examples:
