How to create a home within a home
Part of being a teenager is craving independence. When moving isn’t an alternative for another few years, arranging part of your home to feel like a separate household can be a timely solution.
Make it easy to arrange – and rearrange
When space is limited, flexible furniture is a great ally. Lightweight, multifunctional items (like a roller blind that both covers shelving and doubles as cinema screen) can quickly be adapted to your needs, rearranged, and later brought along to a new home.
It doesn’t take a fully equipped household to create the feeling of one. Having your own domain can mean a lot for someone with a growing need of independence – and for the balance at home.
A shelf to take you back in time
You know that adorable children’s chair that you’re too fond of to throw away, yet can’t find a purpose for? Problem solved! Use hooks to turn it into a decorative shelf. Perfect for your most prized possessions, or maybe a film projector.
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
