1. Nesting tables
These versatile units, such as IKEA’s Granboda set of three, can be used separately when you need more table space, or nested together to take up less space.
2. Wall-mounted drop-leaf tables
Make use of vertical space and free up your precious floor with a table that you can mount on the wall, and use when needed? This one from XZQT comes fitted with open storage compartments to keep your items organised and handy, even when the table is folded down.
3. Hidden folding tables
What we like about the +39 Opla Folding system by Ewins is that it looks just like an ordinary shelf when you are not using it. Seamless and space-saving!
4. Pull-down beds
The chic Slumbersofa Classic by Spaceman is great for shoebox apartments. It is available as a wall mounted or freestanding unit, too.
5. All-in-one Cabinets
Utilising your doors for extra storage is an excellent idea. This Jottergoods Pencil Box-n Cabinet saves you the hassle of DIY, and since it is not built-in, you can always shift it to different rooms or homes easily.
6. Sofa beds
This stylish and compact sofa bed, in the form of Kuhl Home‘s Bolia Fluffy, transforms from a sofa to a double bed in seconds, making it ideal for petite homes. It’s especially useful for when you have guests staying over.
7. Portable projectors
Not only do televisions take up space, they usually need a console or shelving system to support it, too. Consider freeing your floor space by purchasing a projector which you can attach to your ceiling instead. Pictured is Epson’s EH-TW6700, which offers full HD-quality images at an increased brightness of 3,000 lumens, making it suitable for both bright and dark room viewing.

9. Pull-out tables
If you find yourself eating on the sofa more than on a dining table, but still do not want to rule out a table, this +39 Lunch pull-out peninsular table top by Ewins is the perfect in-between. Simply store it away when not in use.
