Get Sorted: Essential HOUZE Picks for Compact Singaporean Homes

May 3, 2023 Chastine Kurt Petines

Living in a small space in Singapore can be tricky, but with the right interior design, you can create a stylish and comfortable home that feels spacious and functional. Here are some helpful interior design tips for small spaces and must-haves from HOUZE:

Let Natural Light Shine

Natural light can make a small space or studio apartment feel brighter and more spacious. Use light-coloured curtains or blinds to let sunlight in without blocking it entirely. Add mirrors or reflective surfaces to bounce light around the room, creating an illusion of extra space.

Opt for Light Colours

Light colours make a small space appear open and airy. Use light-coloured paint on walls, ceilings, and floors for a cohesive look. Add splashes of colour or patterns in furniture, artwork, or accessories for added personality.

Embrace Multi-functional Furniture

Multi-functional furniture is essential for small spaces. Look for pieces that serve multiple purposes, such as a sofa bed, storage ottoman, or folding table, to save space and increase functionality.

Stay Organized with Storage Solutions

Storage solutions help you declutter, organize, and maximize your space. Choose storage options that fit your home, like multi-drawer desk organizers, extendable drying racks, storage ottomans, baskets, or shoe racks. HOUZE offers a range of storage solutions designed for Singaporean customers, providing durable, functional, and stylish products.

Personalize Your Space

Add personal touches to make a small space feel homely. Use artwork, photographs, or decorative items reflecting your personality, hobbies, or interests. Include plants or flowers for natural beauty and freshness.

Maintaining a Beautiful Interior Design

  1. Keep your interior design looking fresh and inviting with these tips:
  2. Clean regularly to prevent dust, dirt, or grime buildup.
  3. Rearrange furniture or décor for a new look.
  4. Replace or repair damaged or worn items.
  5. Keep storage solutions organized and clutter-free.
  6. Add new accessories or artwork to refresh your space.
  7. Use aroma diffusers, air fresheners, or candles for a pleasant scent.

Essential Items for Your Small Singaporean Home

Consider these must-haves for a functional and comfortable small space:

Multi-Drawer Desk Organizers

These organizers keep your desk or workspace clutter-free—store office supplies, papers, or accessories fitting perfectly on your desk or shelf.

Extendable Drying Rack

Save space and dry clothes using less floor space. Install it on your wall or balcony, folding or expanding as needed.

Storage Ottoman

A storage ottoman serves as a seat, footrest, or storage solution for blankets, pillows, or magazines. Create a style and comfort in your bedroom or living room.


Versatile storage solutions for laundry, toys, or books. Place on shelves, under beds, or in closets, adding texture and warmth.

Shoe Rack

Keep shoes organized and accessible with a shoe rack. Choose one that fits your closet, entryway, or hallway, accommodating your shoes and space.
