Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that has made its way into Western interior design. When using Feng Shui, the goal is to design a home that aligns with who you are as a person. It is also a way to ensure a space allows your energy (or “chi”) to remain positive and constant. And who doesn’t want that? You don’t have to be a Feng Shui expert to apply some of its principles in the home. I’ve gathered five easy tips that even beginners can use!
- Get rid of the clutter
- Ensure quality lighting
- Keep electronics out of the bedroom
- Let nature in
- Choose colours carefully

A daybed frame is generally raised off the ground, providing plenty of room for storage underneath. This can consist of built-in drawers or open space to stash holiday decorations, as well as a spot for a trundle bed that pulls out to create an extra sleeping spot. If you’re looking for a daybed that can sleep two people, find one that has the trundle included so you don’t have to purchase one separately. For added comfort and a piece that feels more sofa-like, try an upholstered daybed. If you really want some extra room to spread out, look for a full-size daybed, as most come in twin sizes to fit smaller spaces.
What’s the difference between a daybed and a futon
Although they are both very similar in the purposes they serve, there are some major differences between the two that every buyer should know:
Futons: Think of futons as sofas that double as beds. Because their primary function is seating, they need to be a bit firmer to account for more frequent use by multiple people. A futon needs to fold up and down to switch functions, so often the overall sleeping area will be slightly larger than that of a daybed.
The above Gustav SofaBed is an example of stylish Sofa, which can be easily changed into a comfortable double bed, this is a Futon.
Daybeds: Think of daybeds as beds that double as sofas. Their primary function is for sleeping, so they will feature an actual twin-sized (or larger) mattress instead of cushions, and will typically be on the softer side. Daybeds do not fold up and down, so the seating depth will be greater than a futon, but can be easily adjusted by adding pillows as backrests.
The above is the Benchy Day Bed. Which can be used during the day to sit more people in your living-room or office.
Hong Kong apartments require efficient storage furniture solutions. Whether your home is large or small, the opportunity for added storage is always welcome. When choosing a bed with hidden storage, think about how frequently you need to access your things, ottoman-style lifting beds give maximum storage and gentle finger lifting, the best solution for frequent use.
Review our Milton Storage Beds in below video.
Another way of creating more floor space in your tight Hong Kong apartment is using the double function of your furniture think about, a stylish living-room sofa, which build-in foldable double bed. Enabling you to transform your living-room into a cosy bedroom in seconds. Your wall mounted TV will serve you well from a sitting-lounge postion to your lay down bed position. Below on of our best selling Sofa Beds, the G611 SofaBed.
A more traditional way to create storage, is off course and wall storage cabinet. At SofaSale we custom-make them for you. So you can utilise your full wall to create the maximum amount of storage space, from floor to ceiling. Good to know we use recycled wood, which gives full character to your furniture.

A Hong Kong bachelor pad gets a bold, bright and blue updateHigh-end hotels provide the inspiration for a Sheung Wan bolthole for a student studying overseas. BY OLIVER GILES Interior designers may dream of having a free rein on projects. But as Wesley Liu recently discovered when creating a bachelor pad in Sheung Wan, working without a brief can also be a burden. “There weren’t really any processes of approval,” says Liu, founder of PplusP Designers. “The client just passed the whole project on to me. I didn’t know what he’d think of it.” But the designer need not have worried. “When it was all done,” Liu remembers, laughing, “he came in and was like, ‘Wow!’ It was just like a TV show.” One of the first things Liu did was to knock down a wall between the living room and the kitchen, creating a sleek, open-plan space for entertaining. One request from the client, who likes to cook, was that he wanted to be able to serve his friends food and drink easily. “So an open-bar concept was best,” says Liu. Parties can also spill outdoors because the room opens to a balcony with sweeping city views of Poho (the area around Po Hing Fong) and Sai Ying Pun. Living room The sofa (HK$11,000) and single-leg coffee table (HK$1,200) came from SofaSale. The rug and the stool-like coffee table were gifts from designer Wesley Liu. The dining table (HK$9,000), dining chairs (HK$1,200 each) and bench (HK$5,800) The full story you find on the SCMP Post Magazine website
