Moving in together can be an exciting step. Make sharing space even more enjoyable with these smart organisation tips for the smallest room in your home.
Split the space. Keep the sink area tidy by organising toiletries on a pegboard shelf each (some sharing like a toothbrush mug can still be fun). Divide the wash-stand drawer in half so you both get your own side. Transparent boxes with lids make it easy to see your stuff from above.
Use the walls. Maximise space by attaching hooks with self-adhesive backing, rather than drilling holes in the tiles. Hang heavier things such as your bathrobe on the large hangers (they can hold 1 kg each), and towels and gym bags on the little ones (they hold 0.5 kg each).
Invest in flexible furniture. Shelving units that are easy to assemble and disassemble mean you can adapt if your needs change (hello new baby or roomie). Display a plant, your favourite scent and some fresh towels on the open shelves.
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.
