An ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) can add a lot of value to your property, either serving extra living space or a potential source of passive income. If you want to maximize your ADU, you need to furnish it properly. Here are a few helpful furnishing tips from one of the leading remodeling contractors in the area.
Use Multi-purpose Furniture
An ADU will usually have smaller than average floor space. This means everything you put in it must be efficient in terms of both form and function. Our experts recommend getting multi-purpose furniture such as couches that also provide drawers for storage or beds that can be folded into sofas.
Get Storage Mirrors
Drawers and other forms of storage are great but they can often make a small space like an ADU a bit too cramped. For bedroom and kitchen renovation experts, adding storage mirrors can help provide the illusion of extra space, making even a mini-ADU look bigger than it actually is even without resorting to the intensive floor or layout changes.
A big concern about an ADU’s limited space is that you can’t put too much furnishings in it. This is why instead of trying to optimize the floor space, our experts recommend utilizing the wall. Vertical storage and closets do not take as much floor space as their regular versions but can hold just as many (if not more) items.
Seek Professional Help
Coming up with an efficient layout for your ADU requires serious planning right from the start. If you want the entire process to go smoothly, you should seek help from experienced specialists. A reputable home remodeling company will also give you more options that you would’ve otherwise missed during the planning phase.
