A majority of us in land-scarce Singapore live in small HDB flats, and these have only gotten tinier over time. Compare the usable floor space of your parents’ 4-room flats to that of today’s 5-room BTOs – they’re almost the same size.

When faced with the inevitable, we gotta work with what we have. Other than incorporating cleverly designed fixtures during the renovation stage, you can also make your teeny tiny apartment look more spacious with the right space-saving furniture and smart storage items.

They don’t have to cost a bomb either, for you can get them from online shopping platform ezbuy at super affordable prices.

Some of us are crazy shoe ladies with an ever-growing collection of footwear – and little space to keep them. Use a shoe cupboard space maximiser ($5.80), which allows you to store double the quantity of shoes in the same amount of space through simple stacking.

These are wide enough for chunky sneakers, and you won’t have to worry about the soles of your shoes dirtying your other prized pieces.

2. Vertical corner shelf with towel rack for bathrooms (from $16.50)

When there’s limited space on the ground, the only way to go is up. Maximise the area in your bathroom with a corner shelf (from $16.50) that’s designed specially to fit into those 90-degree crannies that would otherwise be wasted space. The vertical design allows you to stack multiple bath products, while taking up the same negligible amount of floor or table space.

It even comes with a towel rack so you don’t have to install a separate one, or resort to hanging your towel on the doorknob – which holds more germs than we realise.

The rods that come with the shelf are adjustable, so you can choose to put them on the sink or on the floor in your shower cubicle.

3. Pegboard ($4.10)

Free up drawer space – or do away with drawers altogether – by using a pegboard to hold your stationery and tiny knick-knacks. These come in beige, white, and light grey for $4.10 per set – a great bargain considering IKEA’s is close to $40.

Pegs and shelving boards are provided, but you can also get creative and use your own hooks. You don’t have to use up all the units either – separate them into single squares if you have minimal items to store.

You know those tiny slivers of space between your furniture and wall, or between 2 appliances like your fridge and washing machine? Yup, you can make something out of those too – if you have a crevice rack (from $11), that is.

This foldable table (from $49.50) is perfect for couples and small families who have no need to invest in a gigantic dining table, but still want enough seating space to host guests for a home-cooked meal. The amazing thing about this is that it can be reduced to a mere shelf when it’s not in use!

The table is structured such that there’s a cabinet incorporated into its base, where you can store condiments, sauces, and wine for easy access. You can also just flip up one side of the table if it’s just a cosy meal for two.

You’ve got kitchen roll, rolls of tin foil, canisters of chips, and tea tins…and before you know it, your kitchen countertop is cluttered to the max, with limited space for food preparation. Clear up some space by attaching a magnetic storage caddy (from $12.50) to your fridge or washing machine – it comes with multiple tiers of racks, and rungs that you can use to slot your tubes of cling wrap or kitchen towels.

It’s even strong enough to hold a couple of 1-litre drink bottles! Simply clip them to bottle holders or tie raffia string around the bottlenecks, and hang them on the handy hooks that already come as part of the design.

Perks of getting a front-load washing machine? You’re able to create extra space above it. We don’t just mean placing a couple of items on top, but rather, installing a washing machine rack (from $31.20) over it. This will allow you to put not just small items like potted plants and bottles of detergent, but also entire appliances like your microwave.
