With the rise in apartments, condos or even simpler 1-2 bedroom homes, many people today are shying away from big, bulky pieces of furniture that take up too much space.

If you live in a small space and you’re looking to find furniture that can serve a dual-purpose (double-duty furniture), there are a variety of options. That’s because they allow for functionality and flexibility in furnishing multi-purpose spaces, and you can save money by not having to buy so many different pieces of furniture.

Beyond dollars and cents, though, here are some benefits of purchasing double-duty furniture:  

Futons versus sofa beds#1: Flexibility

Sofa beds, wall beds, storage benches, and ottomans are all wonderfully functional and can transform any space. For example, sofa beds can serve as a comfortable place to relax and watch a movie after a long day at work, but it can also unfold into a comfortable sleeping area. Similarly, a wall bed is another great option that uses vertical or horizontal space to be stored which won’t intrude on valuable storage space in a room.

#2: Functionality

Desperate for storage space but don’t want to sacrifice your décor? Storage benches and ottomans are great options! Storage benches can provide more seating around the television in the living or family room and you can also store a variety of household items in them, such as blankets, pillows, sheets, and more.

#3: Creativity

When planning the room’s interior, sometimes using double-duty furniture requires a shift in mindset. Get creative on which things in your home could be used for a dual purpose. For example, if you have a dresser that you are using for clothing storage, consider using it as your nightstand as well. That way, you can use it as storage space as well as something functional to set your books, reading glasses, or other essentials.
