So you’ve always wanted a revolving shoe cabinet but your pocket says no way. But wait! There’s an alternative. Check out our list of seven crazy home features you’ve always wanted but could never afford and their pocket-friendly alternatives (aka sad replacements):

1) REVOLVING SHOE CABINET

Heads up ladies, this is what a REAL shoe closet should look like. But if you can’t afford it try this shoe carousel on for size. (geddit? cause shoes? *snickers*)

Rakku’s Shoe Wheel can hold up to 30 pairs of shoes. Convenient? Seems like it. #CLOSEENOUGH

2) SLIDE IN YOUR HOME

Keep dreaming. I have no idea which HDB flat will allow this beautiful monstrosity. But while the adults can’t play… Maybe your kids can!

This lucky kid’s parents had their designer create a slide! When I was a kids my bed was a pasar malam tilam on the floor. (Just FYI *tears of sorrow*) #CLOSEENOUGH

3)HAMMOCK-BED

Swaying in the gentle breeze with the smell of the ocean and coconuts in the air correct? Well, if you can’t get this, you can definitely afford a small hammock! Smells and sounds courtesy of your HDB flat neighbours next door and sometimes the karang guni man.

Don’t say we never share. These foldable hammocks from Airmocks (local store) are light and can be used indoors and outdoors. But why would you want to use them indoors right? #CLOSEENOUGH

4) INDOOR SWIMMING POOL

Looks insane, and we have to admit pretty much impossible for most homes. So instead opt for a tub:

Snuggly-tight space? #CLOSEENOUGH

5) GIANT EGG NEST BED

Don’t you wish you had one and that you were sleeping nestled among the eggs? Well with a $15,000 price tag, no surprises that it would feel like heaven. Cannot afford the nest or the eggs? Maybe you can afford just ONE egg:

Look! It’s leopard print too! #CLOSEENOUGH
