Whether for a child’s bed-room or an adult’s bed-room, if you are having issues with limited space and have tried every furniture placement possible, you might want to consider a loft bed. A loft bed is like a bunk bed except with no bottom bed. Instead, you have an open space under the top bed for adding a desk, bureau, chairs or whatever you like. This frees up space, providing an area that can be used to declutter your bedroom or just give it more breathing space.

One of the great features of the new flat screen TV’s is that if you live in a small space, the TV can easily be mounted onto certain types of stands that are designed to have a very small footprint. These stands also have shelves for components like DVD players, gaming consoles, cable boxes and surround sound systems.

Whether you live in an apartment, or a small University dorm room, we all have to do laundry and ironing at least a few times in our lives regardless of how big or small our living space is. With that in mind, a space saving ironing board comes in very handy when it’s time to iron out those wrinkles. The good folk at Polder’s have come up with an almost portable ironing board that allows you to iron away on any hard surface or table top. Then when you’re done, simply stow the board away under the bed or in the closet until next time. Very convenient!

With the cost of gas and fuel prices rising each year, the idea of heating every room in your house, no matter how big or small, can be a costly one. Enter the portable electric space heater! A portable space heater works best in single rooms where you will spend a lot of time, allowing you to turn down the heat throughout the rest of the house. One of the more efficient space heaters is the fan forced convection heater, which covers a large area room quite nicely. This way, you can stay toasty warm while saving money.

In a small room like a dorm room, a laundry hamper should ideally not take up too much space. A few space-saving designs are available: Some hampers are foldable, so that they take up very little space, but this is only true when the hamper is empty. In the same vein, mesh pop-up collapsible hampers fold onto themselves. There are hampers made to fit in corners, some that hang, and some that are simply small or have a slim profile.
