Hong Kong Hacks for apartment living

Hong Kong has some of the smallest average apartment sizes of the world!! Typically a family of 4 squeezes into just 60sqm.

So here are 4 hacks to maximize storage and space into a teeny tiny apartment or even a larger apartment.  Maximizing space is always a good idea.

Victoria Bishop – Interiors & President of Queens Interior Decorators Association says –

“If you have a small apartment you really need to think about custom pieces because the standard furniture that’s out there is made for the standard Australian home, which is obviously a lot larger than a small apartment”

  1. Custom Made Furniture  bespoke is something Hong Kong does well. Tailoring everything from couches, beds to dinning tables. Even TV cabinets & shelving can be custom made to save space.
  2. Under Bed Storage  locals make the most of space under the bed in Hong Kong.  Drawers, gas-lift beds and loft beds for kids are popular space saving solutions.  Tip: IKEA & Forty Winks have a large range of beds with storage underneath, a new trend for Australia.Under bed storage ikea
  3. Correct Size & Scale  the size of your living space does not mean your furniture needs to be equally tiny.  Its about right size & scale.  A good sized rug for example will help the room look bigger.  Place the front legs of your furniture on top of the rug to make the space look larger.
  4. Kitchen racks & rails  Hong Kong kitchens generally have no oven! So cleverly positioned racks & rails make the most of vertical space and free up valuable room in cupboards.  Attach racks above the bench to store spices & rails from which to hang pots & pans.  This is a smart kitchen solution for every kitchen, large or tiny.
