Organize Your Stuff

Maybe it’s time to clean up and organize your things. Try to see which ones you can donate and the things you can still use and repurpose. If you can, have a garage sale so you can earn from your pre- loved items. And before we forget, we’re pretty sure you have a lot of documents under your bed or somewhere in your cabinet. Check which ones you need to still keep and just throw the others. You would be surprised how much space it consumes.

Don’t Forget Your Floor

Now that you know how to improve your walls, and that you know how to arrange your furniture, let us not forget the floor. Perhaps you can buy a nice carpet or bean bags. You can even throw some pillows to have a cozier feel. This will instantly make your flat magazine-worthy.

After you are done improving your HDB flat, cook some great dishes and pour a glass of wine. Relax at your sofa or watch some great movies. Share the positive vibes to your home and you would definitely see and feel the difference.
