Do you have a small home or what we prefer to call a self-contained apartment? Jumia house highlights some features that are a must-have for any apartment that qualifies as a self-contained apartment. They can also double up to serve as ideas for maximizing small spaces in your home.
Having a sofa that converts into a bed is an intriguing feature for a small home as it not only makes the most use of the available space, it saves cost. This ‘sofa-bed’ can be placed in the main living area to serve as a cozy resting place for your visitors during the day and your snuggly bed at night. A bed that folds into the wall or table that folds into a cabinet is another creative way of converting your furniture for multiple uses.
Resourceful Storage Solutions
Hanging pans on the wall or stacking dishes on a wall rack as an alternative to storing them in drawers saves you huge furniture space. Having drawers for your clothes or undergarments on the sides of your bed is another way of being creative with your space. For book lovers, a wall rack with well-decorated bookends is a great way to keep your books and save space.
An all-purpose area in your small home is one feature you cannot pass up on. Your dining area may not be your dining area all the time as it can also be used for other purposes such as reading area or using the table as an ironing table depending on what you desire. Your bathroom can double up as your laundry room where you have a washing machine depending on your budget and bathroom design.
