Single Dwellers and Space Saving Designs

Posted on 2nd February 2013 by Robes and Rails

As more and more people decide to live alone, traditional furniture designs must be adapted. The growing trend for single-dweller living has led to accommodation plots shrinking and as a result, the need for innovative, multi-functional space saving furniture is more in demand than ever…

Living alone is becoming an incredibly popular lifestyle choice and has risen considerably over the past decade. According to a study conducted by market research firm Euromonitor International, there were 277 million people living alone worldwide in 2011, compared with 153 million in 1996, an increase of 80%. The main reason cited for this rise is people choosing to delay marriage or co-habitation in order to focus on education, their career and personal professional goals and, with around 34% of households in the UK containing only one person, we as a country are definitely part of the leading force of this trend.

However, one of the major drawbacks of living alone (and what lots of New-Yorkers refer to as ‘the compromise’) is space. As housing is being built with single-dweller residence in mind, the space being offered has decreased and, as we all know, less space means less storage.

This is where Robes ‘n’ Rails can help! We have an entire collection of intelligent, space saving furniture that’s designed and created to fit your bespoke requirements.

Everyone knows how valuable storage is and when you are living on your own and additional space is limited, it becomes even more so. Most single-dwellers have no spare room, no study space and certainly no utility room, making every inch of space incredibly valuable. Our furniture is created to make the most of this space, offering storage solutions which combine beautiful aesthetic appeal with multi-functional, incredibly versatile design.

Our space saving furniture designs can also be the ideal solution for families in need of extra storage. Whether you have mounds of clothes that need a home or an extensive collection of toys with nowhere to live, our innovative fitted furniture can be the answer to your problems.

Our fitted wardrobes, for example, can make the most of every scrap of space in your bedroom. They can incorporate alcoves, be designed around sloping ceilings or corners and, as they can be fitted with sliding doors, open flush so as not to intrude on any other space.

We can also help you make the most of your wall space, with a range of custom-designed shelving and bookcases. Whether you want to hide away clutter or proudly display books or ornaments, we have the fitted storage solution to suit your tastes, décor and budget, and can help you make the most of the space in your home. We even have a range of fitted office furniture available at Robes ‘n’ Rails, and this can be installed into a home-study or incorporated into other areas of your home, providing the perfect multi-functional solution for a single professional.So if you are in desperate need of versatile storage solutions, contact the experts at Robes ‘n’ Rails today. We produce beautiful designs that are created to your individual specifications, and work closely with you to ensure a finished result that not only provides valuable storage space but also completely enhances the look of your home.
