BOOKMARK

Renovating your place is definitely an exciting journey. It’s easy to get caught up in the big picture (like deciding on what feature wall to have) and forgot about certain nooks at home. We have shortlisted these 7 spots at home that truly deserve more shine.

Your Entryway

First impression counts. Here’s how to make coming home a treat. Have just the right amount of storage spaces for your miscellaneous items such as keys and cards, and your shoe cabinet. The best part is you can be creative – play with colours, materials and even the design style. True sophistication starts from here.

Your Hallway

Transform your boring walls into a hall of fame. Display your artistic side or showcase your personality. This is the only area where you don’t have any furniture or fittings to steal your show.

Your Service Yard

This highly functional spot in the house deserves more than just cleaning dirty socks and shirts. If doing the laundry is a chore to you, perhaps a pretty yard like this would make you think twice about saying ‘No’ to doing the laundry. A tip; keep the area bright and airy, and ensure you have enough storage spaces to keep the area neat.

Under Stairs

You wouldn’t want to feel like you’re being cornered while sitting here, so keep some plushy cushions and pretty flowers at bay to keep the space inviting.

It’s function over style for this growing family. Instilling pull-out storage instead of a mini store room means you can stash your trove in an organised and neat manner. Needless to say, it’s easy when it comes to searching for items. Just remember to make note on where the item is stored.

Bay Window

It eats up space, but we can convert the space into a functional storage. Think dressers, reading nook or bag display, you can have it all (see more ideas on how you can convert your bay window).
