Three tips for Compact Living
Tip 1: Think about function
Tip 2: Your time in a space
Tip 3: Define with light
|Compact homes need to do more with less. Encourage your customers to start by thinking about all the activities they need to do in each area, whether that’s working, working out, socialising, or sleeping.||
Once you know what your customer needs to do in their compact home, think about multi-functionality. Could it make sense to double, or even triple up a small space for multiple uses with flexible, space saving furniture? Homeowners don’t work and sleep at the same time, so why not combine a sleeping area with a home office using a space saving fold away bed?
|Lighting is the ideal way to define a space, even when it serves multiple purposes in the compact home. Incorporate lighting into your space saving furniture designs to transition an area from its day to evening use at the push of a button.|
