Six Storage Areas in Your HDB Flat You’re Probably Not Using

HDB flats are the cheap housing option in Singapore, but just because a space is a little cozy doesn’t mean you’re using the space as efficiently as you can. In fact, there’s a good chance there are still some spaces you’re missing out on.

Here are the five storage areas in your HDB flat that you’re probably not using enough:

The space above your bed

The space directly above your bed is the most under-utilized space in your entire home, and you want to make a shelf over your head for two reasons: (1) it can be a decorative space for paintings, houseplants, and decorative accessories; and (2) it can be a practical storage space (i.e. books, boxes for other stuff).

Overhead bed shelves can also work for your kids’ rooms, as long as they don’t fall over or bump their heads every time they try to reach for something.

The space under your bed

Under your bed is another useful storage area just waiting for you to use to its fullest advantage. Just because it’s dusty doesn’t mean you can’t use it for stowing stuff away – all you need is a vacuum cleaner and the right storage containers and you’re good to go!

Behind your door

The space behind your door has more utility than simply installing a coat rack. When you build a shelf in this area just the right way, you don’t need to worry about stuff getting knocked over every time it swings open.

Add a clothes rod to your floating shelves

Already have a floating shelf or two installed? Make them even more useful by bolting a clothes rod directly underneath that shelf for easy access for your clothes, including uniforms or your work attire.

Overhead space

Floating shelves and cabinets installed on the upper parts of your walls clear up much more space than a standard shelf. Instead of taking up floor space, they can be bolted to any height you want.

Unlike ordinary shelves and cabinets, floating shelves give you better options in customizing your storage space that emphasize on both aesthetics and functionality.

Consider a Self-Storage Company for Your Storage Needs

If you just don’t have enough space in your home, you have two options to manage your belongings: donate the things you don’t need, or call in the help of a self-storage company to provide a reliable storage option for your belongings.   

Self-storage comes in many different options depending on the space that you need. Some options offer the space of a walk-in closet or a child’s room, while others can be as big as a one-car garage or even a two-car garage.

The Common Mistakes of Tarot Reading in Singapore

Tarot cards may help you if you have problems or perhaps you want to know what is in yourself or maybe you can ask yourself on what will be your future. However, it is not that simple. You can answer your questions by yourself with the use of Tarot cards but the question is, “will it be fair and definite?”


In reality, reading the cards by yourself is not easy as A-B-C. Tarot reading is a complex process and even expert readers may get an imprecise reading of the deck. This usually happens when:

  • Reading the cards during an emotional period: When you are at an emotional state, Tarot reading is not applicable because sometimes the results may dismay you. If something happened that makes you feel bad, avoid reading Tarot card. Just wait until that emotional pain disappear.
  • Getting an additional card: Sometimes, Tarot readers use an extra card to “clarify” their initial reading. However, if this is not done correctly, it may only lead to a more mystifying reading.

  • Reading multiple cards over and over again: Tarot readers tend to go back reading the cards with the same topic. If it cannot be prevented, give yourself a break for at least 1 month or when something has changed.
  • Reading all meaning of the cards: There are a lot of meaning for each Tarot card. Reading all the meaning of the cards will increase the possibility of choosing what explanation you want. As a result, it will make the interpretation unbelievable.

Keeping a calm and an open mind is the most difficult part in reading the card by yourself.
