Quality is key to comfort

Whether sleeping or playing, babies spend a lot of time in the nursery. Products such as cots and dressers are essential to ensure their comfort. The right gear can also make life a lot easier on sleep-deprived parents and caregivers.

Where the heart is

There's something special about Malia and Peter Hirschmann's Pok Fu Lam home. It's not the size - although its 2,300 square feet feel decidedly roomy when compared with typical hutch-like Hong Kong residences; it's more the fact that, despite being rented, it feels as though the couple and their children have lived here their whole lives.

Tranquillity counts

In designing and decorating their bedrooms, many people end up creating an environment that does little to aid relaxation and is anything but sleep-friendly. Space constraints, particularly in Hong Kong, can mean the bedroom becomes part office, part storeroom, with computer, television, exercise machine and assorted other gizmos seeming to occupy every spare inch.

To buy or not to buy

It's not uncommon for homebuyers to make a purchase based on the blueprint of an apartment. However, this is not ideal as there is no guarantee the paperwork will give an accurate picture of the unit. Those buying a flat in an area they are not familiar with won't have any concept of their building's surroundings - and no amount of online satellite imagery can rectify that.
