When the bed is folded away, the piece of furniture looks exactly as a desk. When the function needs to change and the bed needs to be used, you simply pull down the bed which folds down, and the desk slots back into the recess previously occupied by the bed. The charm of this system is that the bed is packed away readily made up for use and, when the desk needs to be put away, it glides backwards so that any items currently in use on the desk can stay exactly where they are: they will not be disturbed. The whole system runs on a cleverly hidden hydraulic unit so that you only need to use one hand to pull the bed down or push the desk backwards. For apartment decorating ideas, this piece of furniture, and others like it, is absolutely ingenious.
Apartments that need decorating may be limited in size but never forget they also have height and this is something that can be very successfully utilized when it comes to furnishings such as an entertainment centre, or a desk for your home office equipment. Drop leaf tables, or tables which have additional leaves that drop into the middle of a dining table, have been around for generations. There are now many dining tables on the market which can be fitted against a wall, with a drop-down leaf that can be released when not in use. Conversely, another innovation is the dining table into which two chairs can be slotted when not in use - certainly my choice if I was in the position where I needed to conserve space.
However, with a little creativity, space planning and repurposing your furniture, you can easily adapt your lifestyle to apartment living while still feeling like its home. First, creating a comfy home in an apartment doesnt require a huge outlay of cash, especially if youre moving from a home to an apartment, either in your own town or halfway across the country. The first step is to figure out what fits in your new space. This may require some hard decisions. If you cant fit it all in, you can always put what you cant use in storage until you either move to larger quarters or decide its fate.
