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:

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.
