Today I’ll be sharing some space saving furniture ideas for small apartments because you know how important space is if you live in a small apartment or condo. When there isn’t enough room, every square foot matters, whether it’s in a cramped college dorm or a city studio apartment.
When you just have a few hundred square feet to deal with, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to fit all of your furniture, belongings, and home décor while still having enough functional space to walk between them.
Fortunately, there is a solution, and it all comes down to making wise choices with little furniture items that can be utilized for multiple purposes and don’t take up a lot of space.
In today’s post, I cover 24 space-saving furniture and accessory pieces that can help you maximize your small apartment’s space while still creating a comfortable living area – all without losing utility!

A bean bag chair is a great way to add some fun to your living room or bedroom. It can be quickly adjusted to your liking and is quite comfy – so much so that you could fall asleep on it by accident.

This faux-fur saucer chair is simple to fold and pack on the go, as well as quite comfy to sit on. Make it the main focus in your living room or bedroom.
4. Dining Room Table
Buying a compact multi-functional dining table is a terrific way to save space if you have a small kitchen with limited storage. For added storage, look for a table with a built-in cabinet.

Don’t overlook the huge storage space inside, which can store your books, magazines, and everything else you may want in the living space.
A daybed is an essential piece of furniture if you live in a small studio apartment or loft. It may save you a lot of space. Because room in a studio apartment is limited, a daybed may serve as both a bed and a couch.
Not only will you have more space, but you’ll save money since you’ll only have to buy one piece of furniture rather than two.
This daybed also features a trundle, which comes in useful if you have any overnight guests or may just be used as extra storage.

13. Hanging Shoe Organizer
An over-the-door hanging shoe organizer is another fantastic space saver. Shoes take up a lot of area on the floor or the shoe rack, so use a hanging shoe organizer to store tiny sandals, slippers, flats, and heels.
The best feature is that it can be hidden behind the door, so no one except you know it’s there.
