Space. In our homes, it can sometimes feel like we simply don't have enough of it. Busy work and family lives can often mean that we live surrounded by clutter, or that we have to climb over a pile of coats just to get to the bathroom (seriously, WHY were they on the floor again?!). It can start out as just being a little bit annoying, but if the problem grows, we can find ourselves really struggling to live amongst such chaos. It doesn't help that recent studies have found that the average home size in America is shrinking. This year, size of an average family home fell by 73 square feet, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Therefore, there has never been a better time to maximize your space with these clever pieces of furniture.
