DIY is all the rage nowadays, and for something like home décor, it’s more popular than ever because we all want to personalize our home. There is no question that living spaces in Hong Kong are tight, and more often than not renovation can cause a fortune, not to mention the hassle of moving out etc. However, I am here to bring you a list of DIYs that not only save you space and get organized, but are incredibly easy to make.

  1. Hanging buckets for your toiletries, or whatever you put inside of your bathroom

    A fancy way to spice up your bathroom, or just any room, you can hang a few buckets ties together by ropes and use them as a storage unit. If you don’t like the idea of dangling ropes or is afraid of the weight of it all, then simply nail the buckets (or even jars) on the wall.

    Now wardrobe space is actually a bit of a precious commodity in Hong Kong, and hanging your clothes up are genuinely the best way to go in organizing your clothes. It also makes it a lot easier for you to look through them. So here we have a solution: Soda can tabs. You can now hang twice as many clothes (providing that your wardrobe and hanger can sustain the weight). You’re welcome.
