Optimize the use of space with small pieces of furniture

Living in a small space doesn't mean sacrificing comfort and style. With the right furnishing tips and the judicious use of small pieces of furniture, you can maximize every square inch of your home.

At Mon Petit Meuble Français, small furniture isn't cheap furniture. Our small pieces are as beautiful, as solid and as durable as large pieces.

Thanks to the wide choice of sizes offered for each piece of furniture, you can equip yourself with a real top-of-the-range piece of French furniture, whatever the size of your room. If the standard dimensions we offer don't quite fit your interior, don't hesitate to ask us to modify them and create a bespoke piece of furniture for you.

Here are a few ideas for optimizing small spaces with the right furniture in the right place.

Our design tips for small spaces

1. Measure and plan

Before buying furniture, measure your space to identify the dimensions available. Use these measurements to plan and create a layout diagram. This will help you to choose precisely the right small pieces of furniture for your space, avoiding mistakes.

2. Choose multifunctional and/or mobile small pieces of furniture

In a small space, each piece of furniture must be useful several times and in several places.

  • Small display and seating furniture

Small display/seating units are functional gems that add a touch of style and sophistication to your space.

Imagine a splendid console table in your entrance hall, adorned with your collectibles or travel souvenirs. It becomes an elegant focal point, welcoming your guests with a touch of refinement. A designer coffee table, meanwhile, can become the centerpiece of your living space, with carefully arranged art books or decorative objects drawing everyone's attention.

You don't necessarily need a lot of space in your home, since we offer them from 70 cm / 27.6" long, so you don't need a hotel lobby to display attractive furniture!

The decorative and practical potential of an inviting end-of-bed in your bedroom is enormous! Our end-of-bed allows you to sit down, place cushions, books, clothes, tablets and computers, while adding a touch of luxury.

These versatile little pieces of furniture serve not only as display units, but also as occasional seating. They're perfect for those times when you need an extra seat or bench to entertain guests, or simply to relax and enjoy your space. With their sleek design and compact size, they fit harmoniously into small spaces, adding functionality without visual clutter.

  • Storage units

When every square centimeter counts, smart, compact storage units are your best allies. Small storage units offer an effective solution for organizing and optimizing available space, whether in your living room, bedroom, office or even kitchen.

Display and TV cabinets are ideal options for storing and showcasing your TV accessories, precious crockery or favorite knick-knacks in the living room. Their clever design features adjustable compartments and shelves, allowing for customized organization to suit your needs. They combine design aesthetics with storage functionality, providing the perfect balance between style and utility.

Small cupboards optimize space vertically. They give you extra storage space for clothes, books or decorations, while freeing up floor space. Small cabinets with drawers or hinged doors are also ideal for concealing everyday items and keeping your space organized.

With these small storage units, you can transform a small space into a well-organized haven. Their clever design and ability to maximize the use of every nook and cranny make them essential choices for small spaces.

3. Optimise vertical spaces

In small spaces, walls are your best allies by fitting them with wall-mounted shelves to maximize vertical storage. These can hold books, decorative objects, plants and even small pieces of furniture, such as folding mini-desks. Also consider attaching hooks and coat racks to store accessories or clothes and free up floor space.

4. Choose folding or stackable furniture

Folding or stackable furniture is perfect for small spaces, as it can be stored away when not in use, freeing up space. Choose a folding table that can be fixed to the wall and fold away when not in use, or stackable chairs that can be tucked away in a corner. This flexibility means you can adapt your space to suit your needs.

5. Use nooks and crannies and underutilized spaces

Small spaces are often full of nooks and crannies and under-utilized spaces that can be put to good use. Install corner shelves to optimize these often neglected areas. Use pedestals or drawers under the bed to store clothes or seasonal items. And don't forget to use custom-made furniture to fit in perfectly with narrow rooms or spaces.

6. Play with optical illusions

Use visual tricks to make your space feel larger. Opt for small pieces of furniture with clean lines and light colors to create a feeling of openness. Mirrors can also visually enlarge the space by reflecting light and creating the illusion of depth.
