Space-Saving Ideas: 'Transformer' Apartments

Transformer apartments can be quite small but effective as they can include not only basic amenities but also entertainment and work areas. Thanks to specially built furniture and custom architecture such apartments can house a living room, a home office, a bedroom, a kitchen and a dining room in one single room.

Transforming Furniture

Transforming furniture is a real space-saver. It can be a sofa that transforms into a living room furniture set or a wardrobe with a built-in Murphy bed. A few such items can definitely provide a small apartment with multiple furnishing options and areas in a single room.

A simple folding table or chair can also become a great addition to the room that can also be removed any moment and free some space for other activities or areas.

Certain architectural details provide with another effective method of making the most of any living space. Think retractable walls, doors, and dividing box-shaped structures for kitchens, libraries, and storage.

There is also a concept of a transformer apartment featuring a mechanical system that swaps and hides areas with a push of a button.

Shoebox apartments definitely would benefit from the ‘transformer style’ since it gives more flexibility and space to the tiny homes that often lack mere living areas because bed occupies most of the room.
