You’ve seen chic and thematic houses from Scandinavian to industrial and minimalism. But how do you put them all into place? What is the first step to achieve the home of your dreams? For context, the average size of a four-room BTO HDB flat in Singapore today measures 968 square feet. If you have already received the keys to your new flat, or have seen your friends’ new nest, you will notice that it is smaller than the flats your parents bought back in the days.Instead of lamenting your lack of space in your new humble abode, focus on making the best out of your new situation instead.

Utilise your wallsYour walls can help if you’re low on square space. Add shelves on your wall, install pot rails, hang your photos, and the list goes on. You can even mount your bicycle up, which doubles as a great wall feature. Just ensure you don’t over clutter! Remember, less is always more.Purchase your picture frames at Photojaanic.3. Tension rodsThese are applicable to anything at all!

This would maximise your floor space, providing space for other necessities.4. Behind cabinet doorsKeep your items organised and out of sight with magazine racks or hanging baskets. Simply ensure that the new additions are carefully measured, so you don’t end up with a half closed door. Have an extra space on your shelf? Let loose and dance away (while you’re doing chores) with a JBL Speaker. If you’re not the loud music type, shop an array of earphone options at Creative Technology.5.
