We all want to put an end to this virus epidemic. No matter how much you enjoy cozy days quarantining at home,

we all start to get bored and stuffy. Other than working out, chatting with your family or planning for your life, if you have nothing else better to do,

it's might be a perfect timing to make your home a better place! Here're some easy tips and ideas.

 

1 | 加入鏡子

1| Make use of Mirrors

 

雖是標準教科書的小技巧,但套用在摩登家居中卻永不過時。

鏡子會使空間看上去更大、更光亮及更柔美,選一面獨特的鏡子還能夠突出個人風格。

 

Even if it is a standard answer to every household, it is always adaptable in modern home.

2 | 重新思考貯物空間用途

2| Reconsider storage purposes

 

家居每一寸空間都十分珍貴,平常我們都會在餐邊櫃、電視櫃等地方放置收藏物件。

要避免未來的儲物空間不夠用,可以考慮重新計劃及思考每個空間的特定儲物用途,不但令家居看上去更整齊,

要找東西亦更加客易。若發現空間不夠用,不妨趁此機會重新添置適合的櫃子。

 

Every inches counts in apartments in Hong Kong. We usually store our stuffs in sideboards, tv units, etc. 

To prevent  storage space running out in the future, we can plan and reconsider the storage purposes of every space.

It doesn't just make space look tidier, it also make finding things easier.

 

If you realised the space wasn't enough, it's time to get a better cabinet.

3 | 添置特色飾物配件

3 | Make use of unique home accessories

 

雖然平靜簡單的室內設計會令空間看起來更寬敞,但適量加入各款材質、

印花的配件也可以為單調色彩增添一點玩味。越小的空間便需要發揮更大創意,

不妨加入顏色鮮明大膽的擺設和掛畫,打造個人化風格。

 

Although minimalist home designs make spacious rooms, adding different kind of textures, prints on home

accessories make mono-tone fun to play with. Smaller the space, the more creativity you'll need. 

Try adding bold colour accessories or hanging art to personalise your space!

4 | 燈光效果

4 | Lighting Effects

 

良好的燈光會使空間看上去更寬敞和更具空間感,特別是在細小又狹窄的空間,

如沒有窗的浴室。改變家居的燈光效果能輕易為空間注入新鮮感,

想自己在家隔離時能享受更好的工作環境,不妨添置獨特枱燈或吊燈。

 

Good lightings make bigger room, especially for small and cramped space, like a windowless washroom.

It is the easiest way to add in some freshness to the overall vibe by changing the lightings.

If you need a better working environment, consider unique and stylish table lamps / pendants.

說到底,要讓家居看上去跟過去不一樣,最有效的方法便是清理不需要的雜物。

在一個空間內放置越少東西,房間就會看起來更寬敞舒適。趁着這段時間,

把握機會丟棄雜物,跟過去說再見,準備好迎接疫情後的新生活吧。

 

After all,  to make a difference, the most effective way is to clear unnecessary stuffs. 

Having to store less stuffs, the more comfortable and spacious the room would look. 

Make use of your time to sat goodbye to your past and get prepared for the new life after the epidemic!
