    Small apartments and limited space can boost our creativity. Slide-out cabinets, shelves and tables, multifunctional furniture, stashed equipment or bunk beds are among the most common ideas. Below you will find a couple of real life examples how this looks in practice.

    #1 A pull-out desk

    If the room is too small for a desk or a table, you can use some of the space over the headboard. In addition, you will get a few extra drawers that you can see as soon as the desk slides out.
