"An open plan living area is a flexible space for all sorts of occasions. From extra seating to smart storage, you can enjoy stress-free celebrations with room for everyone."
Marie Tenglund, IKEA Interior design leader
Save yourself the journeying to and from the kitchen by loading up a trolley. When you need an extra pair of hands for all your bits and bobs you can simply wheel it over and when you don’t it can stay hidden under the island - out of sight, out of mind.
Take the stress of hosting off your hands by letting people help themselves. These open storage shelves make for easy access to cups and glasses so your friends feel right at home when they pop over.
