Dubai, United Arab Emirates - September 23, 2019: As a parent, your worst nightmare is when your children grow up and expect their own space. With houses getting smaller and smarter, you find the need for your children to cohabitate and you want this shared space to work for them because you believe it will be a great experience. The question is ‘how can you make a big impact with a small investment? And what can you do to transform small space to a functional smart space?
IKEA loves new ideas and wants to help you ‘start fresh'. The Swedish home furnishing giant has put together some easy tips that can make sharing space work better not just for your children, but for the whole family.
Create the right space for sleep, study and friends:
Children need an organised space for studying, homework and creative artwork. If you have a smaller room and are short on space, the VITVAL (1) loft bed and study is perfect to make sharing space exciting for the young ones. Made out of 30% less metal, the bed comes with fabric guard rails making it safe for children while sleeping.
The beauty of the loft bed is the study comes with built-in cable management and a channel that holds pens in place which helps in keeping the workspace neat and tidy.
The study table can be paired with the ÖRFJÄLL (2) children's desk chair, made of density foam which makes the chair extra comfortable and durable, enough to outlast many hours of studying and homework. With smart features such as height adjustability and more, the chair can keep leveling up alongside them as they grow.
It is important you install the right lighting in the study area. KRUX (3) LED work lamp is perfect lighting for doing crafts, drawing or building since you can direct the light where you like.
SLÄKT (4) seat is perfect when friends come over to hang out. All you need to do is roll it out. When it's time to tidy up, simply stow the bedding, toys or secret treasures inside.
Get creative with storage solutions
With increasing stationary items, your children barely find any space in their desk drawers to store everything. SKADIS (5) is great to use as a divider on a desk or to hang on the wall to keep smaller items close at hand. The SKADIS also comes with accessories that can be bought as per requirement to suit your needs and create the right storage solution.
Create the right mood with décor
Once the bigger things are taken care of, it's time to create the right mood for the children to love their shared space.
You can use the KLARASTINA (6) curtains which is a perfect solution when you want privacy or want to block glares from TV and computer screens.
MOJLIGHET (7) quilt cover, made from sustainable cotton comes in pink and blue and is perfect for children of all ages.
