Retailer furniture makers react to smaller condos

Moving into condos in urban centers in Toronto is becoming a popular trend in the housing market in the city, and in order to move into these smaller buildings, furniture retailers are responding by creating products designed especially for condos and apartments, according to a recent article for The Globe and Mail.

Suburban homeowners in the cities surrounding Toronto who move into these urban centers need to invest in affordable self storage in Toronto for their oversized furniture that won't fit into smaller condos and apartments.

“Every major furniture retailer now has a line that is apartment or condo sized,” Elaine Cecconi, co-owner of interior design consultant firm Cecconi Simone, told the newspaper. “There’s so much product out there for small-space inhabitants that it’s become more of the mainstream, I would say, than a trend in the furniture industry.”

European style furnishings such as storage units with fold-out beds inside and tables with adjustable heights are becoming more popular, allowing condo and apartment owners to multitask in their smaller spaces, said the news source.

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
