    Question Furniture for amah room

    we're moving into queens gardens soon and the amah room is unbelievably small. we're hired a very nice lady and would like to provide her with a bed / wardrobe / desk combination which would pretty much have to be an all in one given the space available.
    can anyone advise where to find such a thing?
    Also the shower goes straight onto the toilet, how does one normalise this situation? are their curtains or something to put around it?

    There are a couple of stores in Wanchai that do custom furniture

    your best bet is to do custom furniture. most of your local furniture shop would do that. we used custom furniture for our helper, also, for quite a small room, not that expensive. but at least they get brand new, custom-made things that makes the best use of space.

    I just ordered a custom piece from TAKAD for my very oddly shaped helpers room (under a stairway). I went to the branch in Wanchai. Their English is a bit spotty, but they are quite patient. They came to my flat, measured the room and made suggestions for me to maximize my space. Plus, it only takes two weeks for the custom pieces to be delivered.
