Maximise your home with smart space-saving furniture in Singapore that go beyond your living and bedroom.
Singapore is an amazing place with beautiful neighbourhoods to live in. But with public housing getting smaller (and more expensive), homeowners are seeking ways to maximise every bit of space at home. Sure, organising and decluttering helps but adding space-saving furniture from the get-go is a smart and strategic way to allow for more room in your tiny HDB flat. We’ve gathered versatile and multi-functional space-saving furniture in Singapore that’ll take you one step closer to a bigger-looking abode.
Best space-saving furniture in Singapore
1. Storage beds, sofas and ottomans
This one’s an obvious space-saving hack and probably the oldest one in the books. Make room for tons of storage space with storage beds, sofas and ottomans. For beds, you can select between frames with drawers or easy-lift mechanisms. Incorporating storage sofa and ottomans in the living room is a great way to stash extra throws and cushions.

2. Loft beds
Aside from the aesthetically pleasing design, loft-style beds or (bunk beds if there are more people at home) are a smart way to maximise extra ceiling space. Plus, they allow you to separate work and sleep time since working from home is the norm now. Once it’s time for bed, climb up to your cosy enclave and doze off to la la land.

3. “Hidden” beds
Now you see it, now you don’t. Nah, it’s not magic. Just the sheer genius of a hidden wall bed concept. They’re perfect for guest rooms, and you can simply fold up the bed for more space during the day. We found furniture stores in Singapore that offer single and double deck beds as well as customised bed heights for a seamless design. Cool, huh?

4. Sofa beds
There’s no need to dust the extra sheets if guests are spending the night – or if you’re planning an extra comfy movie screening in the living room. Also known as day beds, sofa beds have evolved from standard designs and flat mattresses. Pick from beds with plush bedding, adjustable armrests and a fuss-free set up.

5. Extendable tables
Do we have a hostess in the house? Or maybe you have a big group of family and friends who love to come over? There’s no need to waste space with a massive dining table. Upgrade your usual table for expandable or pull-out ones so everyone has a seat. There are also wall shelves that convert to tables.

6. Space-saving kitchen accessories
Space-saving furniture doesn’t have to be limited to living, dining and bedrooms. If you’re renovating your home, talk to your interior designer or contractor about ideas that make a difference. Do you have a kitchen island? Add drawers for extra storage space or pop a shelf, racks or hooks on top to store pots and pans. Build pull-out organisers and corner shelves so every inch is utilised. Declutter your countertop by building in your kitchen appliances. We can go on and on…

7. Home office hacks
Is your spare room a makeshift home gym, office, and walk-in closet rolled into one? We hear you! Mount foldable tables to the wall (if standing desks take up too much space), place peg boards to display knick knacks and add stackable side tables with drawers for quick access to important documents.

8. Multi-functional home accessories
It’s easy to go down the rabbit hole of multi-functional home accessories that are practical and visually striking. We’re tempted to buy everything. Our favourites include collapsible or stackable organisers, mirrors with built-in LED lights and more storage space, and wardrobe combos that store beyond clothes, just to name a few!
