Make the most of your space with indoor and outdoor furniture
Living in an apartment or having a modest garden does not mean that you have to do without outdoor furniture. Designers have been creating multifunctional furniture for decades that fulfill their function on your balcony or terrace, while instantly transforming your living situation inside. How many of us have a sofa bed? Or use a side table as a stool when guests arrive unexpectedly?
While some items in your life aren’t deliberately dual-purpose but can become great makeshift items, there are pieces of furniture you can add to your home to help you get more bang for your buck. You almost feel like you’re getting a two-for-one deal – and who doesn’t appreciate that?
When shopping for furniture that can be used indoors and outdoors, be sure to look for UV-resistant, water-resistant, and durable furniture made with materials like rattan or synthetic materials to help maintain the longevity of your chairs, tables and poufs. . From ladders to counter stools and ping pong tables to designer dining sets, here are the best dual-purpose pieces of furniture you can add to your home, inside and out.
