Between the dog, the cats and the chickens (not to mention two kids), the Jansen family's kitchen space needs to serve many different purposes, all in an environmentally sustainable way. A passionate bunch who describe themselves as all "slightly mad", the Jansens also have no television in the house. This means the kitchen is the true heart of their home: a place where they gather as a family.
INTRODUCING THE JANSEN FAMILY FAMILY BIO
SCROLL

The existing space

The Jansens prefer a relaxed and peaceful way of life and needed a kitchen to reflect that. They believe in making the most of the resources that they have and their current, closed–in kitchen, with its inefficient appliances and lack of recycling facilities, just wasn't meeting the brief.

THE
PLAN
"Lots of cupboards so I can get all my stuff in."
"I can't wait – it will be so nice."

The blueprint

The Jansens used the IKEA 3D Kitchen Planner to test drive different kitchen cabinets, colours and styles before deciding on the final design. They wanted to create more space and keep sustainability top of mind.

TAKING
SHAPE
"You can do it – IKEA build these things so anyone can put it together."

A hands on approach

Guided by an installer – The Jansens saw just how easy it is to install an IKEA kitchen yourself.

A
SPACE
FOR
LIVING
"We can recycle very effectively now – it's more organised"
"Less TV and more card games – more interaction."

Sustainable living

The final kitchen is a brighter, bigger–feeling kitchen with energy efficient appliances and natural finishes – all opening onto an idyllic outdoor area among the trees.
