Because we understand how difficult it can be to source for furniture and accessories that will not only fit into your limited square footage, but will also work with your style sensibilities, we’ve curated a shopping list of some of our favourite space-saving furnishings you can find in Singapore. From a collapsible dining table to a table lamp that does double duty, we have all the bases covered.

1. Collapsible dining table

Prefer eating your dinners in front of the TV rather than at a formal dining table? Get a collapsible dining table so you can pull it out only when you have guests around (and need to show them that you’re a proper adult).

2. Nesting tables

You can’t do a list of space-saving furniture without including nesting tables. These from IKEA offer a ton of flexibility in terms of how you use them—use them as stools, a bedside table, coffee table or a study table—and they can be stacked neatly to take up minimal space if you need to stow them away.

3. Entryway bench

Need a functional and streamlined piece of furniture by your front door? This is it. There’s a seating area to make it easier to put on shoes, a rack to put on regularly worn footwear and a small drawer by the side to store accessories like socks.

4. Adjustable sofa bed with storage

Saving space doesn’t mean you need to subject yourself to a dainty and hard sofa. A pouffy, cushiony couch like this one can also be space-saving since it also works as storage and can be arranged into a super single bed by reclining the backrest.

5. Side table in two ways

This side table can be placed upright so that it can be tucked into the arms of your sofa or the bed, or it can be placed as a wide, short table to serve as a coffee table or footrest. We also love, love the side pocket, which you can use to conceal and organise your favourite reads.

6. Add-on wardrobe

While a custom built-in wardrobe will help to make the most of your small space, an off-the-rack closet can sometimes save you some extra budget. This one works well for smaller bedrooms, since it’s essentially modular so you can add on to it only when you need the extra storage. It comes in various modules, whether you prefer open shelves, drawers or full-length doors, and these can be configured to suit your space.

7. Mobile and foldable storage rack

This versatile storage solution comes attached with wheels so you can move it easily to wherever you need extra storage. Having it foldable means you get to store it away when you don’t need it around.

8. Adaptable table

This highly adaptable table has an adjustable height and width so you can navigate between dining table or coffee table. It can also be flattened almost completely so you can wedge it under the sofa if you have the space.

9. A vase and lantern

This is no ordinary vessel for your plants. It comes with a concrete base that has a built-in LED so it also functions as a decorative table lamp. It’s waterproof and rechargeable so you can bring it outdoors for alfresco picnics by the moonlight.

10. Full-length mirror with storage

A standing dresser with a full-length mirror on one side and storage racks, shelves and containers on another so you can organise your bags, makeup and other fashion accessories.

11. Slim laundry rack

If you air dry your clothes in a limited-sized laundry room, this slim laundry rack should be helpful. It’s designed to be placed vertically in order to minimise space, and the “arms” can be adjusted depending on the clothes and laundry you are planning to put up.

12. Ceiling bed

Is your home short on square footage but blessed with ample ceiling height? Then you’ll want to consider this freestanding ceiling bed. The mechanism works like this: the bed glides up to the ceiling when bedtime’s over, moving out of the way to free up floor space to make your bedroom more multipurpose. You can also incorporate a sofa underneath, which will make this piece a great asset for the living room.

13. Super slim utility trolley

Awkward gap between your refrigerator and countertop and wondering what you should do with it? Fill it up with this slim trolley, which has a sleek 13-cm width, three tiers and a handy wooden top. Use it to store your spices and oils or other cooking essentials.

14. Foldable walking pad

For those looking to clock your steps in the comfort of your home, this walking pad will definitely be up your alley. Plus, it’s foldable so you can stow it away after use. No more chunky gym equipment in sight!

15. A cot that grows with baby

Baby furniture can often be such a waste of space, since babies grow up really quickly and the furniture you bought can get obsolete just as fast. This baby cot can thankfully be converted into a cute bench when your baby grows into a toddler, so, no waste! It’s also incredibly stylish and flexible, featuring rubberised wheels to make it quieter and easier to move it around and an adjustable height so you can bring your baby in and out of the cot without much fuss.

16. Versatile cookware

This set of induction-friendly cookware comes with a single handle that can be removed and used in all pan sizes to make storage easier inside cramped kitchen cabinets. It’s also a great option if you have a limited hob area (the small kitchen curse!), since you won’t need to account for extra handles when placing the pots and pans on the stove.

17. Mobile workstation

A home office takes up a lot of space. There's no need to carve out a separate workstation if you have this mobile workstation that you can set up anywhere in the house thanks to the castors installed at the base. It's a chair, table and storage, rolled into one!

18. Cinematic experience

For folks thinking of converting your living room into a mini home cinema, this configurable leather recliner sofa that comes with a storage box and cupholder option should be your top pick for seats. Each functions as a module that can be added to it depending on your needs and space, offering you flexibility and a cinematic style comfort.

19. A storage toy

A toy that also keeps your kid's playroom organised? Yes please! Shaped like a truck and attached with wheels for play, it also comes with a large compartment for stowing away soft toys, books and crayons. The bonus? It's made with environmentally-friendly rattan.

20. Living extension

Extend your living space to your balcony with this table that can be mounted onto your balcony rails so that it doesn't take up extra floor estate. With a depth of just 35cm, it works for even the smallest of outdoor spaces.

21. Ottoman with tray

This ottoman may look unassuming, but it's a seat, storage and coffee table. There's a tray on the underside of the lid, so you can serve up breakfast in bed (or cocktails for your guests) with ease and stability.

22. Side table with speaker

Love to be surrounded by good music but don't want a bulky speaker taking up unnecessary space? This side table that comes with a Bluetooth speaker's your answer. It purports to provide an immersive 360° sound, so you won't feel like you're missing out on anything fancy.

23. Rattan divider

Instead of using a concrete divider to segregate the spaces in your home, opt for this super stylish rattan divider to divvy up your small space. We love that it functions as a decorative element on its own, and it still allows light and air to pass through the different zones. The ledges by the sides can also serve as a display for your potted plants, books or other knick-knacks.
