Houses in England are getting smaller – and RestRelax are here to be the space saviours …

The average size of a new build home in the United Kingdom is just 76sqm and the average flat in London is just now the size of a carriage on the Jubilee Line at an incredible 46sqm.

Houses in the United Kingdom are the smallest in Western Europe, they’re nearly 10% smaller than they were a decade ago and people living in London are now looking for innovative ways to create space in their home.

New company RestRelax aim to solve the problem of living in smaller homes by offering customers a range of multi-functional, stylish and affordable space saving furniture products that are built to address the needs of the ‘space constrained’ London consumer.

RestRelax have developed a range of products that offer style and function, whilst also being affordable too… All of their products offer quirky touches and multi-function, meaning that sofas or footstools can transform into a bed in seconds, ideal for the unexpected visitor or keen to visit parents.

As part of the range available from the RestRelax website are :-

Rosie – A stylish footstool that opens out into a bed, perfect for the unexpected guest. Put your feet up and then when you need it, simply remove the zip off cover and pull out a really comfortable foam bed.


Ollie – A stylish flip out sofa bed that turns living room into bedroom within seconds (available in single or double). Literally turn living room into bedroom in just seconds with this stylish pull out sofa design.

Founder of the innovative new venture Nick Eary said “Our philosophy from day 1 has been to understand the customer experience and build the product around that. There are so many products on the market today that look great or are well priced, but just don’t work for the customer leaving them with less space or at worse having to return the product. A tenant that is renting a house for 12 months won’t want a product that they can’t fit up the stairs or have to wait three months to have it delivered?”

RestRelax founder Nick Eary confirmed that this is only the start.

“RestRelax have another 30 products in various stages of development, and each offer alternative solutions whilst still being stylish and affordable. We’re also looking to bring on a number of other UK manufacturers to expand our range to include beds, wall beds plus a dining and outdoor range”
