“You don’t always have to downsize your furniture to fit into your home. The trick is to make the most out of the space by choosing double—or even triple—duty pieces,” shares SB Furniture merchandising manager Jackson Cue. 
Bedroom. The bedroom is a personal space. The focal point of this room is also the most used piece of furniture in the home—the bed. Look for multi-functional pieces such as SB Furniture’s Spazz Twin Bed, which houses an outlet, LED night light and niche for gadgets and books. This investment piece, following SB Furniture’s European standard quality, is sure to last a long time. 
Living Room. The living room should be able to function as a space for unwinding and entertaining. For maximum utility, SB designers recommend a piece like SB’s Winning Coffee Table, which stores small cushion stools under it. For surprise company staying for a night, the Canny Sofa Bed erases the issue of storing an extra mattress. 
Dining Room. A few people would argue that the kitchen or dining area is the best part of the home. A good sturdy and stylish table that fits one’s needs will do just the trick. SB Furniture’s Minimo Dining Table is functional in more ways than expected. Its leg serves as a compartment for little things, such as kitchen utensils. Plus, it’s foldable, allowing for space-saving when not in use.
Putting it all together. Finally moving in all of the things is another challenge. Make sure to have space to put even the smaller items like books and trophies. SB designers suggest to put up tall wall shelves that serve as both decorative and functional. The brand’s wide range of trendy, stylish collections ensure that no matter the design of the house, there’s a piece that will maximize space and declutter a room.
When all the furniture has been bought, it’s time to assemble and position them in the best way possible. Thankfully, SB Furniture offers free Furniture Layout Consultancy which allows the home owner to work with the SB in-house designers as a friend and partner.
