IKEA believes that on the path to a better life at home, small steps make a big difference. As a result, this innovative company has released its IKEA catalogue 2021 as a way to mark its 70th birthday and show that small budgets and small spaces are catered for.
From offering new perspectives to solutions and ideas, this handbook is the epitome of what it takes to turn a house into a home. It’s full of smart tips and the affirmation that trying to create a better home doesn’t have to be time-consuming nor complicated or costly. In fact, it can be as straightforward as making a few smart and innovative changes.
SATSUMAS Plant Stand – BUSKBO Plant Stand. To add vibrancy, soften vertical lines, and hide any imperfections in your walls, add decorative pots with plants at various heights in your home’s corners.
SVENSHULT Shelf. Nothing quite beats winding down for sleep with a good book in bed. Why not hang a wall shelf sideways to provide storage for books and a clock to rouse you in the morning?
EKET, Cabinet. If you spend a lot of time searching for your keys, sunnies, and other items to rush out the door in the morning, then invest in wall-mounted cubes. Position them on your wall with a mirror for quick hair touch-ups and access to those easy-to-lose items.
NIKKEBY Clothes Rack. Limited bedroom space and storage? Not a problem. A rack for shoes, clothing, and accessories means everything has its place, while a sheer curtain creates a separate sleep area.
BJÖRKSNÄS Bedside Table. Staying hydrated at all times of the day and night is crucial. Why not take a glass and carafe of water to bed to remind you to drink before sleep and when you wake up?
SEKTON Kitchen Cabinets and MISTERHULT Lamp. Reduce waste, save money, and enhance the vibrancy of your home by growing your own herbs. You can be a master chef in the making.
SANDARED Pouffe and SÖDERHAMN Sofa. A small one-bedroom apartment doesn’t have to be cramped and cluttered. Instead, it can be as spacious and streamlined as this family of four’s apartment. Because the young daughters sleep in the bedroom, and the parents in the main room, storage solutions are crucial.
Shelving runs along the width of the room and even near the ceiling to maximise space. They have also opened up the centre of the room for active play by pushing the dining table against the bed and stacking the chairs adjacent.
SLÄKT Bed Frame. Small bedrooms don’t have to be a barrier to functionality. This bed frame with storage works seamlessly for two sisters in a conservative space. Underbed storage removes the need for a chest of drawers.
EKBY ALEX Shelf with Drawers and ODGER Swivel Chair. To create an office nook for work or play, all you need are shallow wall-hung surfaces and shelves. You can then make the most of short walls and corners that may not function well as anything else.
LASSBYN Mirror, Set of 2. Colour coordination can be everything in a home of any size. Enhance the contemporary elegance of your home with a collection of white, black, and oatmeal accents. Tie the look together with natural wood, rattan, and bamboo.
If you have a small space to work with, remember to keep your wall shelving and TV console low to accentuate your ceiling height. Even a large sofa can make a small space seem generous.
Nikkeby Clothes Rack. Are you looking for a cost-effective room divider? Make use of a clothing rack with plants. Not only do you create division, but plants reduce stress, and the colour green may be beneficial for a peaceful night’s slumber.
EKET Cabinet. Sunshine is valuable, so if it’s lacking, take advantage of it as much as you can. Invest in a wall-hung shelving unit for plants that sit as close to a source of sunlight as possible.
MICKE Desk and NILSERIK Standing Support. Working with a small space? Position your workspace inside a wardrobe and streamline your area. You can then close the doors at the end of the working day.
