Furniture Ideas for a Multipurpose Room

Multipurpose furniture is practical and cost-effective. Instead of filling your home with items that serve a single purpose, intentionally designed pieces will keep your space clean and organised by offering multiple uses. It’s the perfect solution for everyone from strict minimalists to those just looking to keep a tidy house.

If you’re not sure exactly how multifunctional furniture could work for you, SpacerStore has plenty of ideas for how to incorporate this smart design into your space. From a multipurpose child’s room to a creative entertaining space and more, this guide is all about multifunctional possibilities!

Multifunctional furniture for better organisation

One of the best things about multi use furniture is that it can help to keep your home organised and clean. A room that is filled with too many furniture pieces will not only look cluttered, but will also be harder to tidy.

Here are a few great furniture pieces with hidden storage built in so that you can have fewer items in your overall layout:

Artiss Lift Up Top Coffee Table - With a bottom shelf and a hidden nook for magazines, remote controls and other miscellaneous items, this stylish black coffee table provides more storage than your average living room furniture. And, with the lift-top function, you can get rid of your bulky TV tray tables. 

Premium Storage Ottoman - If you’re looking for hidden places to store linens, shoes, off season clothing and more, you’re going to love this ottoman. At first glance, it looks like a comfortable bench, but the lid opens up for plenty of storage space.

Artiss Bed Frame With Storage - This modern bed frame offers three functions, making it the ultimate multipurpose furniture piece for your bedroom. First, it serves as a comfortable and stable bed frame that will give you years of great sleep. It also has a built-in LED light for a more relaxing ambiance that will replace your traditional nightlights. And, with the gas lift mechanism, you can easily access a large storage area underneath your mattress. 

The multipurpose child’s room

With toys, clothes, books, and all of the other items that you can find in a kids room, it’s no wonder that this area is so difficult to keep clean. Multipurpose furniture is a huge help when it comes to organising this difficult to manage space.

Keezi Kids Storage Box Bench - It’s not easy to find kids furniture that is as adorable as it is functional, but this box bench fits the bill. It’s large enough to store a variety of child room essentials while keeping in mind safety mechanisms to give you peace of mind. And, it doubles as a bench for reading and playtime.

Artiss Kids Table and Chair Storage Desk - Like the Keezi Box Bench, this playful desk is both stylish and practical. Your kids and their friends will love colouring, reading and playing on this two-toned desk, and you can even convert it into a chalkboard desk for more doodling fun. And with built-in storage, you’ll love how simple cleanup can be when playtime is over. 

Multifunctional office space

Perhaps more than anywhere else in your home, you want your home office to be clutter-free and organised. It can be especially difficult to keep this room tidy if it doubles as a home gym, craft room or other everyday function. Here, multi use furniture can help your workflow.  

Artiss Standing Desk Height Adjustable - In a space that may serve multiple uses, a motorised adjustable desk is a huge advantage. For instance, if you’re trying to figure out how to make your home office double as a home gym, you might introduce a desk treadmill underneath your adjustable standing desk, which has been shown to offer plenty of health benefits. When you’re through with your walk, simply lower the desk to the height of an exercise ball or office chair.

Artiss Adjustable Drawing Desk - If you plan on using your office space not only for traditional office work, but also for creative hobbies, an adjustable drawing desk is a great piece of multi use furniture. You can tilt it for easier use while designing and drawing, lay it flat for a laptop or other equipment, and store items in convenient drawers when you switch activities.

Entertain better with multi use furniture

If you’re someone who loves to host dinner parties or special get-togethers with family and friends, there’s a lot that multifunctional furniture can give you. The following pieces are great for maximising your seating, storage, and sleeping arrangements options for overnight guests. 

Montauk Kitchen Trolley - For everyday use, this portable kitchen trolley is a great storage option for your kitchen supplies. But when guests are over, you can transform it into a moveable bar or appetizer station. No more running in and out of the kitchen to fill drinks and prep more ingredients for the cheese board. Everything you need is in reach.

Artiss 2 Seater Adjustable Lounge Sofa - With 10 different positions, we’ve never seen a sofa with this many options, and every one of them will mean that your guests are more relaxed. This reclining 2 seater can be used as an extra sleeping arrangement for guests that is more comfortable than an air mattress and doesn’t require you store that air mattress box in the closet between visits. 

Gardeon Outdoor Storage Box - Much like the storage ottoman that we mentioned earlier, this large box and bench combo is wonderful for providing more seating, this time for your outdoor events. You can store all of your backyard supplies in the spacious storage compartment, while the top acts as a stylish bench for extra seating. You can even add in some comfortable outdoor furniture cushions to make the space more inviting.

Some more tips on using multifunctional furniture

In this article, we’ve covered some of the best pieces of multi use furniture that you can find in our SpacerStore catalogue. But there are plenty of other ways that you can reimagine a home that is multifunctional! Here are a few ideas:

  • Add a few trendy wicker baskets to your bookshelf for extra storage that doesn’t look cluttered.
  • Section off multipurpose rooms with room dividers. This will help to keep things organised.
  • Upcycle old items that can be used for storage and design. A good example of this would be to use old jelly jars as small storage containers in areas of the house that tend to attract clutter - like your office, bathroom, or bedside tables. Or, you can paint an old broken ladder and give it a new life as a rack for your throw blankets. 
  • Take a minimalist approach to your home, and your life. Multifunctional furniture is a great way to introduce minimalism into your interior design because it gives you more with less. You can keep this perspective in mind for any additional purchases for your home, whether it be clothing purchases, wall art, blankets, cleaning products or anything else that you can think of!
