I love getting to show you space saving small space furniture like this multi-functional table that converts into a bookshelf. Pretty neat, right? On top of the multi-functional nature of this piece it’s also made from reclaimed wood so every each unit is different.

It’s definitely a high priced but also seems like a high quality and unique piece that’s made to last. But really I just had to show it to you and ask you what you think about it?

Would you use this or something like it in your current or future small space? It’s different, isn’t it?

If you’re thinking about living in a tiny house or even just downsizing to a smaller house, you’ve probably been thinking about space-saving tiny house furniture… And today I wanted to show you this sofa that converts into a bunk bed in just a few seconds.

It’s a foreign product that’s probably really expensive and completely unobtainable for those of us like you and me who want to live simply so we can also live affordably. But either way- I thought it was worth sharing because who knows? It might inspire somebody to create a DIY version- with a how-to- that’s more affordable (crossing my fingers).

If you follow this website or others I’m sure that you remember the tiny Hong Kong apartment that transforms into a multitude of rooms within just 330 square feet of space.  A key part of that apartment’s design was it’s furniture.

Furniture plays a key role in small spaces, especially when families are involved.  In fact I think the right furniture can make or break many people’s decision to go small.  These designs offer incredible convenience.  Desks can turn into beds (without having to move everything off of your desk!!), shelves turn to tables, and more.

Small living spaces for today’s people need to have multi-functional furniture.  Listen and watch as Ron Barth, president of Resource Furniture, shows you their designs. How about some of this furniture in a tiny house?


There’s no doubt about it when living in a small space you have to start going vertical at some point. And when you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it earlier.

A great place to start is in that tiny kitchen. Magnetic spice racks can be used in a number of ways to help use wall space for storage. Before you know it you’ll have a good problem!

What will I do with my extra space?

Here are some neat ways to use magnetic spice racks. Add your own ideas in the comments.

– On the refrigerator
– Magnetic strip on open wall space
– On the inside of a cabinet door
– On inside pantry wall or door
– On your oven

Space-Saving, Magnetic Spice Racks…

For tiny house furniture post #10 I’ve changed the name to Furniture for Small Spaces to broaden the focus to any other type of smaller home including huts, cabanas, apartments, studios, yurts, RVs, etc.

This series is designed for everyone that lives in a small space. Here I’ll cover available—and concept—furniture for your smaller home. I’ll be featuring pieces with…

  • Multiple purposes
  • Hideaway features
  • Hidden storage
  • Sleekness
  • Do It Yourself capability
  • Recycled materials

If you have any ideas just send me a message here.

Today I found these microfiber storage ottomans that come in 8 different colors. They’re on sale for $91.99 on Overstock.

The dimensions are 17 L x 17 W x 20 H. The lids flip over and turn into a tray. Flip it the other way and you can use it to sit or rest your legs on.

It also has some decent reviews at Overstock. Maybe you can create something like this from pieces you already have at home?
