A wine rack like the one here lets you reclaim counter or cabinet space for everyday essentials. When the bed isn’t in use, you can use the piece as a seat, footstool or coffee table. Simply pop on a large tray, and you have a stable surface for food and drink. Just ensure that you display the items in a tidy and organized fashion so that the chair doesn’t become the equivalent of a junk drawer. Book storage is an age-old problem in small homes, particularly ones without any alcoves.
