These 6 Foldaway Furniture Picks Will Free Up Lots of Space in Your Home


With the scarcity of space in Singapore homes and minimalism being the new way of life, homeowners are constantly on the hunt for better storage solutions. From pull-out desks to space-saving wall beds, here are six foldaway furniture picks that will allow you to store more, for less.

Pull-out kitchen counter

ATIM Opla Top, Ewins, POA

If you find yourself toppling over the jars and glasses on your kitchen counter, it’s time to upgrade your space. Instead of splurging on a brand new countertop, save your precious square footage and opt for this pull-out kitchen counter instead. Besides being the perfect food prep companion, it also serves as a cutting board that can easily be put away once you’re done.

Morph Extending Table, Spaceman, POA

Don’t be fooled by this table’s simple design! As the name suggests, the Morph Extending Table transforms into a longer oval-shaped table when fully extended. When compact, its straight edges allow you to prop it against the wall, creating a cosy dinner spot for two.

Wall-fitted murphy bed


Modern Murphy Bed, Space Koncept, POA

This wall-fitted murphy bed is a smart solution for homeowners who want a dual-purpose guest room. Fold it up when you need a place to exercise or work from home, then pull it back down when guests come to stay. The bed also disappears neatly into the wall without any handles, making it ideal for minimalist homeowners who want to maintain a compact home design.

Desk-vanity combo


PASCAL Vintage Solid Wood Vanity Table, Urban Mood, $480

Crafted fully from solid pine wood, this desk cum vanity table from Urban Mood merges style with functionality. While it makes for a sturdy work desk in its folded-up state, it can be simply opened up for a handy makeup table. The drawers even come with dividers to keep all your make-up bottles and stationery organised.

Expandable stool


Expand Paper Stool, Spaceman, POA

The Expand Paper Stool is quite something. It’s not only foldable but also made of Kraft paper. This means that the stool opens up like a book so you can quickly whip it out when unexpected guests come to visit. No need to worry about it crumbling from the extra weight, either; the stool’s special Kraft paper is water and high-wear resistant and can withstand some pretty heavy loads!

Foldable table with storage unit


IVAR Storage Unit With Foldable Table, IKEA, $272.50

A great addition to your pantry or storeroom, the IVAR Storage Unit comes equipped with a space-saving foldable table. You can use this as a desk (which seats up to three people) or simply as an extra surface area for your knick-knacks. When not in use, just flip it up to hide it from view.
