Let’s start by what is multipurpose furniture. It’s a piece of furniture that can be used in more than 1 way. And I don’t mean I can use it and it makes me feel good. Both of these are requirements. What I mean is that on top of having 1 primary use, it also has a second primary use.
 
For example, a sofa bed. It’s serves as a lounge area. And when you have guests over it also serves as a guest bedroom area.
 
Another example, a hydraulic bed. It serves as a bed, and it serves as a storage space underneath.

Why should you have multipurpose furniture.
 
First because it saves you space. By having one item with two functions, you only take the space of the one item. Instead of taking the space for two items.
 
Second, it saves you money. Instead of buying two items you only buy one.
 
Third, you only need to buy one item. Thus you can splurge a little more to buy something that pleases you aesthetically. On top of being practical. It’s good to make yourself feel good.

Some of you might be thinking you want something cheap and simple. I want you to stop and think again. Furniture affects your living space. As it makes your environment. When you buy something for it’s practical side only, you might always feel something is missing. So before buying and regretting after. Thing twice. And search for an item that will bring you more than practicability at home.
 
Also when you choose to buy furniture that has had a bit more of a design procedure behind it, it tends to last longer. Here again you are also saving money in the longer term.
