The top trends in furniture this year are all focused on saving space and having multiple uses.
The Top Trend In Beds
Beds designs with multiple uses are quite popular this year. The bed design currently in high demand is the sofa cum bed. This bed design allows for quickly changing from a bed to a couch and from a sofa to bed.
This bed design is best used in a living room. It gives the ability to turn it into an extra bedroom as needed when there are guests in the house.
This bed design could also be used in an office for those long work days when you don’t have time to go back home to sleep.
Many of these bed designs also include hidden storage compartments under the cushions for less often used items.
More and more people have begun including corner unit shelving in their home furnishings. These corner units make use of what would otherwise be wasted space.
These units add both extra storage space for organising and storing your things, and extra display surfaces for displaying pieces of a collector.
If the room involved is not large enough for additional furniture, consider standard room furnishings that can be placed in corners to use this wasted space. Corner shelving can also be used here to add extra space to organise your belongings.
Bar unit furniture is becoming a hugely popular addition to living rooms. These units have several shelves and racks to hold glasses and bottles and keep things organised.
Bar units also make great pieces with which to entertain guests.
If the whole unit would take up too much space in your living room, then consider a wall mounted shelving unit to display and organise your bottles.
Wall units can quickly become the focal point of an entertainment room or living room. These units can be used for holding the TV and has many shelves and racks to keep other things organised as well. This can be an excellent means for holding and displaying your books and magazines.
Many of these units also have display cabinets built into them for showing your more fragile collection pieces.
Two Tone Finish
A rising trend currently seen in many contemporary furniture designs is a two shade finish. This is commonly done in two shades of brown but is observed in other colours as well.
This finish is most commonly used on dressers and display cabinets but has been used in chairs and even bed frames.
Space organisers are trending this year due to their utility and the many excellent varieties of designs and colours available. There is some design out there to fit with any furniture style.
If your current dressers, shelves, and cabinets aren’t enough to store and organise all your belongings, space organisers can be an excellent and useful addition. Another bonus to these units is how less expensive some of the available designs are compared to other furniture.
