When clutter becomes a problem and more space is needed, functional furniture can play a key role in your decorating. Who says your coffee table can’t pull out to be a dining table? Who says your computer desk can’t easily disguise itself as a console table? These are just a few examples that prove how smart and beneficial functional furniture can be. If you are someone who treasures open space or has the mindset that less is more, then this may be the way to go. Make your life easier with the help of these functional pieces:
Instead of just having a comfy place to prop your feet up while lounging on the couch, your ottoman has the ability to be much more. Imagine the cushion your feet are resting on to be a lid that can easily slide off. Feeling cold? No need to get up – just take your feet down and pull out blankets from within the ottoman’s storage. You could store games, remote controls, slippers, or whatever you want!
Lift Top Coffee Table
Coffee tables tend to take the place of dining tables, especially for people with smaller spaces. Sitting on the couch and eating at the coffee table doesn’t sound like such a bad situation, but it can cause more pain than pleasure at times. Your neck and back tend to hunch over, causing much discomfort. Luckily functional furniture from Signature Design by Ashley makes coffee tables that lift at the tabletop. Now when you go in for a bite, you won’t be causing stress on your spine.
Bed with Drawers/Headboard Shelves
A regular bedframe holds a mattress, but a functional bedframe holds a mattress and then some. Some of these bedroom furniture pieces are made with extra drawers so you have extra space for clothes! Others have built-in shelves on the headboard giving you easy access to a book, a glass of water, your laptop, or anything else you want within arm’s reach.
Having functional furniture helps you keep your house less messy, and you more organized. Talk to a sales associate at your local furniture store about Signature Design by Ashley functional furniture to see what kind of pieces you may want in your home!
