Many people are choosing to have futons in their home because they are such a good space saving device. They can provide people with a comfortable place to sit and watch television or read a book as well as offering a bed for a guest to sleep on when they stay the night.

If you are looking to replace the worn and tired looking table and chairs in your kitchen or in your dining room, you may be wondering whether or not get a square, rectangular or round table with matching chairs.

You will need to assess the space where you are going to put your new table and work out whether or not the table that you have seen is going to fit comfortably in the available space without it making the space look cramped or make it difficult for you to make it around the room without squeezing past the table.

If you are lacking space in your home, a round table is often more practical because it generally takes up less space than a square or rectangular table. It can be easily slotted into a small space in the corner of the room with the chairs neatly tucked underneath so that you can utilise all of the space in your kitchen or dining room.

You don’t need to compromise on style when you are lacking space in your home but you do need to think carefully about what furniture would work in the available space.

If you use your spare bedroom as a study, office or another use as well as a bedroom, you will know how space is very important and you want to make the most of every available inch. Rather than putting a double bed into the room in addition to your desk and computer, have you considered purchasing a guest bed?

Guest beds look just like a single bed on the front of it. However, you are able to pull out an additional bed from underneath which will transform the single bed into a double bed which is perfect when you have guests coming to stay for the weekend. You would never be able to tell that it isn’t a double bed all of the time.
