With the rising cost of real estate, it isn’t rare to own a 20sqm condo unit, or even a 13sqm studio. But a modest floor area like this won’t always accommodate store-bought furniture, so what could a teeny, tiny home dweller do?

The best thing to do is to customize furniture to fit your space. And if you’re having the piece custom-built, might as well take it one step further and add storage space to it. Here are some examples from a local modular furniture maker:

Under-bed storage

The Athena queen-size bed lifts up quite easily to reveal a generous space underneath to stash your bulky bed linen or clothes bins.

Tiny dining

Are you constantly bumping into your dining chairs? The Clio dining set has low, circular chairs that can be neatly tucked underneath the table. The whole set measures just 100cm in diameter.

Don’t have a corner for even the tiniest closet? Then locate it under your bed. The Artemis can lift up to access a small closet space (or study), and the steps also act as storage cubbies.

Classic Murphy


Nothing beats the classic Murphy bed, just like this one, which folds up neatly to disappear into a wall, or in this case—into a study/home office module.
