Be Chic and Stylish with Expandable Furniture

For this day’s article, The Peterson Group Bespoke Condominium and Residences, provider of luxury condominium and residential company for expatriates in Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has featured expandable furniture for small apartment living. With the help of these furniture, inviting at least 20 friends over may no longer be a problem nor is finding extra space for your things.

1. Convertible Book Case to Coffee Table

How convenient it can be to tuck away your dining table in your own book case and transform it only when needed? Designer Orla Reynolds has done just that. On the first look, it is only a mere bookcase with colored lining. However, once you come near enough, you’ll realize those linings are actually detachable and when placed in the middle of the room, it can transform into tables and chairs. Much more, you can even detach the book case to fit the size of the room.

2. Expendable table

You may already have seen the cool expandable round table and just scratch your head on how brilliant the idea is. Well, we totally agree. And it is not only round tables that are being reviewed.

Nowadays, expendable rectangular shaped tables are becoming a trend. From wood, it has even been expanded for glass table. Believe it or not, there are even marble ones. With a mechanism below the table which allows it to expand in a capacity from 8 sitters to 20, these expandable tables can be used as a study table, coffee table, lover’s dining or party center.

3. Vertical Modular Storage

Modular storage comes in a variety of options, from basic stackable cubes to more stylish ladder side tables and shelves. Modular storage is an excellent option for small spaces because it is flexible and can accommodate your decor. You can move the storage easily and scale it to fit the space.

Modular storage also uses clean lines for a minimal and modern look. The furniture won’t clutter up your space either visually or spatially.

4. Fold-away Desks

If you think a desk would consume a lot of space and complains a lot about it a lot but still desperately need one, then a fold-away desk is highly advisable. Hooked into the wall, you can convert this desk into a frame when not in used. When needed, you can unhook it, unfold the frames into a stand and take a seat in front of it. Voila! You now have a desk.

How to Make Your Home Look like a Million Bucks

There are some reason why you are not yet fully satisfied of your full furnished home. It may have already provided a comfortable living space for you, bedroom for sleeping with a walk-in closet and its own bathroom, a complete kitchen where you can cook and eat a decent meal and a living room where you can sit with your guests or just enjoy being alone and watch TV. There is nothing to complain about but there just seems to be something lacking. 

The Peterson Group, matchmaker of the best homes for our expatriate members living in the hearts of successful cities of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Jakarta, Indonesia and Hong Kong, must admit that even though we are providing luxury homes to our clients based on their needs and specifications, each room would still need a private touch of home owners for them to claim the place as their own. 

For some who would want to make their space look like a million-dollar space more than what luxury it already exudes, the following tips may help you:

1. Choose the right color

Choosing colors are sometimes overlooked by many individual as long as they can choose their favorite or have a color shade which is safe to go with. Contrary to what so many people think, deciding and reviewing colors is one of the most challenging struggles by the most expert interior designer. The color palette should match the furniture used. If elegance is what you are after without jeopardizing safety, black is mostly advisable.

2. Know the basics of fabrics

Throwing in some furs or sheepskins can help enhance the quality of the room. It is an easy thing to add on your coffee table, just makes sure the color fits the theme of the room. A sumptuous fabric for a new curtain or for throw pillow covers can provide an upgrade your sense of style in the living room or bedroom. Decorate the pillows or curtain swags with satin tassels or other luxurious trims. Splurge on a few thick, thirsty luxury towels to give your bathroom an instant upgrade.

3. Create  a focal point

Focus on something peculiar and unique which can attract the attention of your guests. This center piece is common in luxury homes and can boost the impression of your artistic taste. The right piece can give the room a "wow" factor that instantly upgrades your decor.
