Smart Designs for Apartment Living

If you are downsizing or looking for a lock-up and go it will important to furnish your apartment efficiently.  Purchasing a Mzuri Apartment not only provides you with a smart living experience but the apartments are designed to maxamise on the space and combined with these creative décor ideas you can ensure your apartment incorporates all the décor needs you would find in a larger home.

In a compact living space, each piece of furniture should earn its keep. These 12 ideas — including adjustable tables, sliding bookcases and nesting and expanding furniture — make the most of small-space living.

1.    Adjustable-height table

A sleek glass-top table with an adjustable base allows you to quickly change a lounge area with a coffee table to a workstation or dining table. With a cushy corner banquette, the zone will be just as comfortable whether you’re grabbing a bite or settling in to watch a movie.

2.    Sliding bookcase

Take advantage of potential floor-to-ceiling storage space between rooms by mounting a bookcase on a track system. When positioned against the wall, the shelving is out of the way, freeing up extra room in the living area. Simply slide it back into the room when you want to access the shelves or create a separate room for guests that may stay over.

3.    Extending dining table

If you’re often unsure of how many people to expect for dinner, extending dining tables are the solution to your mealtime dilemma. Extendable dining tables come in a range of different materials, like solid pine, or a mixture of wood and steel. Tables either have folding ends or central sections for an extra leaf or two when they’re extended – there are even tables that extend by pulling out the legs at one end. Once mealtime is over, your table can be put back to its smaller size to reclaim your space, and keep your dining area looking tidy.

4.    Pull-out work surface

Kitchens sometimes incorporate pull-out cutting boards to create extra counter space — these are a great way to save on space but also have a proper counter to prepare those gourmet meals for family and friends.

5.    Mirror magic

While mirrors cannot literally add space, their value should not be underestimated. Wall-to-wall frameless mirrors give a small apartment a grander feel and make a room look far larger than it is.
