We want our furniture to fit your space the best it can and by giving you the ability to customize down to the exact inch we hope to achieve that. In the bedroom sometimes it's hard to find functional storage space. Especially when living in a smaller space like and apartment or a studio, you are limited to storage options. On all of our bed frame options we give you the option to choose to add drawer storage. You can choose to add 3 drawers to one, to both sides, or you can decide to have none. By taking advantage of the drawer option you are able to store more without giving up any additional space. Keep in mind that the Lake House Platform Bed shown below is not the only bed we offer the drawer storage, all of the bed styles have this ability!

Dining rooms are often one of those spaces in the home that you always need additional seating in. No matter how large your family is the dining table is one of the areas of the home that your family will gather around. By adding a bench to your dining space you can optimize the ability to accommodate more people. In smaller spaces, dining benches can help the room feel less cluttered while still being practicable. No matter what your style is, we have benches that can be used universally in all design styles.

Smart Storage Solutions

Concealed storage is always great because then you don't have to worry about your stuff being perfectly staged and have the ability to hide the items you don’t want out on display. Sideboards and hutches are perfect pieces that can do just that! But sometimes it's hard to find the space for larger pieces. The Coleson Sideboard and the New Haven Bench are great options for those tight spaces. Even though the Coleson Sideboard is a smaller piece there is still a detailed design that is usable for anyspace. The New Haven Bench can also add needed storage to those smaller areas of your home while also serving a purpose. You can completely customize this bench to fit your unique style and dress up your entryway, kids room, or Bedroom while still getting the storage you need!

Bookcases are one of the best storage solutions when it comes to small spaces. They are great because you are able to store more than just books; you can also display accessories and more decorative objects. Bookcases don’t always have to be vertical though, when using our Coleman Bookcase you also are able to maximize your horizontal space. This bookcase is great to use as a sofa table while still giving you usable storage and functionality. However every space is different and maybe you don’t need horizontal storage and you would rather use the bookcase in a vertical setting - you could create this same look by having it made vertically with our Brookside Bookcase. Another great way to help divide a small space while adding storage is using a bookcase as a room divider!
