Maximizing the space in a small house or apartment is a creative challenge, but one that can be accomplished. A few tips are to install shelves to utilize wall space, purchase pieces with storage compartments to maintain open space, and arrange rooms to make them look bigger than they are. Here are some multipurpose pieces you can incorporate that will help you make the most of limited space.

This is the ultimate piece for your home: it functions as a couch, a twin-sized bed, and has storage space underneath. It’s a beautiful brown faux leather couch, so it will fit in nicely in almost any living room. At just over 6 feet long and 4 feet wide, it won’t take up too much space.
Add a pop of color to any room with this calming robin’s egg blue chair that unfolds into a 6 foot long sleeper, with a pillow included. The chair’s back is also adjustable so you can make it a recliner or chaise lounge.
Add a bit more functionality to your coffee table with this 4-foot-tall piece that has three types of storage. Under the lift top is storage space, there is a mid-level shelf, and two drawers at the bottom. The table comes in four neutral colors that will complement your decor.
This rolling kitchen cart is perfect if you don’t cook often or don’t spend too much time at home. The set includes two drawers, a towel holder, two stools, and a leaf. Everything folds into the cart, which takes up less than 3 feet of space, and can be tucked away when not in use.
This sturdy 4-foot table comes with four shelves for storing or displaying items. It can double as a dining table with storage for kitchen items like dining ware, spices, and cookbooks.

If you’re in need of just a bit more room for your vanity, or desire dainty nightstands, these 2 foot tall gold and black nesting tables are cute enough for the job. The circle and crescent shapes add a dreamy look, and the circle slides under the crescent to save space.
Use the space up above that usually might go untouched, by installing these tiered shelves. In a smaller kitchen with limited counter space, appliances can go in the cabinets and you can display your cups, glasses, and plates across 3 feet of space. Multiple shelves have more surface area and create a more purposeful look.
A well-stocked kitchen means there will be tons of spices to sort through. Instead of picking up each jar and checking label after label, display your collection in a pretty copper rack, complete with a railing so they don’t fall. The rack can fit jars that are 2.5 inches wide.
Hall trees are essential pieces to have in your front entryway. They hold a number of items, including shoes, coats, and keys. This 4 foot wide hall tree has shelves and storage space underneath the bench, where you could keep smaller items in baskets.
