Space-saving furniture for a roomy illusion
It is common to get by with small homes in Singapore, meaning even smaller rooms in your humble abode. A smarter way to furnish your rooms would be to opt for space-saving furniture, so your rooms look and feel bigger than they really are. Read on for the 8 top space-saving furniture in Singapore.
1. IKEA’s Granboda — compressible tables
This set of 3 tables not only looks sleek and clean, but is also multi-purpose.
When laid out, it forms a long table, allowing you to store documents and stationery. If you ever need extra storage space, compress these tables together and you get a compartment to temporarily store your belongings.
So if you’re generally unorganised or have a mum who constantly nags at you to put your belongings away, this IKEA piece is a godsend.

2. Ewins’s +39 Olpa Folding — sleek table top hidden in a shelf
Ewin’s +39 Olpa Folding is basically a tabletop that can be tucked neatly into a regular bookshelf. This saves you space as you won’t need a full-blown desk anymore.
The foldable panels also hide any unsightly mechanisms that enable the desk to be pushed in and out, ensuring a clean and sleek finish.

3. IKEA’s Tranaro — 3-way use as a stool, table, and cloth hanger
The IKEA’S Tranaro can be used in not one, not two, but a whopping 3 ways for your everyday use.
It can be used both as a basic stool and a bedside table. If you need extra closet space, it can also be hung up on your wall to hang your clothing.
When not in use, simply stack them up and store them neatly at the side.

4. Spaceman’s Liberty — bed in a wall
This wall-bed is the epitome of space-saving furniture in Singapore — it folds away neatly, either horizontally or vertically, into a wall.
Spaceman’s unique innovation uses a soft open/close mechanism, ensuring ease when handling. It’s easy to lift and the bed glides smoothly to the ground when pulled out. The wall-bed is also customisable with an optional bookshelf or drawers and comes in multiple sizes to fit your room.

5. Spaceman’s Slumbersofa Plush — sofa with a hidden bed
Couch by day, bed by night — this sofa with a hidden bed by Spaceman allows you to have both. Their mechanism allows for smooth unfolding and folding of the bed, so you’ll be able to knock out ASAP after a long day without exerting too much force.

6. Ewins’s Roomier Finch Bed to Desk — table to bed with just a flip
This full-sized desk comes with a hidden unfoldable bed, the perfect multi-tasking furniture piece. The best part is that the bed can be unfolded without having to move anything on the tabletop, making it a breeze to unfold your bed for a quick nap.

7. Spaceman’s Slumbersofa Pronto — smooth unfolding sofa bed
Many sofa beds claim to be easy to unfold, but have heavy and stiff unfolding mechanisms.
The slumbersofa pronto by Spaceman has a quick pull-out transformation system that allows you to turn your sofa into a bed of your choice in seconds. Not only are these available in multiple sizes, they are also highly customisable.
With over 200 fabric and leather cover options as well as a wide array of arm designs — slim or chunky, you will definitely be able to tailor-make one to suit your room.
