Trust me; the kid of the home is in reality the boss of the home. They need space and lots of it to keep their stuffs, especially toys. It is also important to make them learn the importance of keeping the things organized. Build a proper colourful attractive cabinet where they can keep their stuffs and also has space for them where they can comfortably rest when tired.

​2. Cover up the wall

Make the TV unit a complete entertainment unit of the room with space for everything you need to keep you entertained, even the books. Open shelves for books, TV table for speaker, drawers and cabinets; this TV unit is an epitome of multi-functionality.

​3. An island with a purpose

It’s not just another beautiful island in a kitchen. A elevated glass table will serve the purpose of breakfast bar or double up to be your work space. Since it is kept at a height from the counter, it will remain clean and dry.

​4. Sofa for some lazy moments

In Indian culture we are supposed to take out our outside shoes before we enter our home. Make it a comfortable affair for young and old. A small seat above the shoe rack will solve the purpose.

​6. A complete package in small space

A small house needs lots of storage space to keep it clean and organized. So instead of wasting the space and money in designing a TV unit for bedroom, bring home a closet and make it serve as TV table for your room.

​9. Step up the style

The beauty of multi-functional furniture is that it can be made functional without compromising on its beauty. A cabinet designed as a stepping stairs elevate the aesthetic of the space in your living room and at the same time it can be used from top to bottom.

​10. Framed window

Usually window space gets wasted for the lack of awareness of how to use it. Get some idea from here and make your window your private recluse with comfortable seating, library on the side and drawers to keep the bedroom essentials hidden.

This work space is an elegant and intelligent design to suit your requirement in your open kitchen. Pull the extended table in your kitchen if you need it there. Push it in the opposite direction if you want your kids to sit near you for their home works. And just make the collapsible table vanish beneath the main table if you need the space for free movement.
