Work hard and play hard at home

When you spend a lot of time at home for work and with your family, you want to create a lively and comforting environment. Having a dedicated space to work and be creative will help with productivity and allow your child's imagination to run free.

See how you can let creativity flow freely – clean, simple and side by side with the rest of the household.

The painter’s den under the work table

Children love to be creative. Therefore it’s a good idea to have an art studio with full mobility. Easily moved equipment, something to handle possible accidents – and they’re free to go where inspiration leads them.

This space then doubles as a creativity hub and work station keeping everyone busy and at ease.

Your magic clean-up carpet

No matter how much we appreciate the artistic ambitions of our kids, some cautionary measures apply. Like a floor protector to avoid permanent art where it’s not supposed to be.

This allows you to work and study at peace knowing your nice rug is not about to become a canvas.

A portable toolbox of creativity

Pens, brushes, paint and more – all the equipment collected and organised wherever it goes. When living spaces are shared for multiple purposes, it is important to have everything organised.

Not only does it allow your little artists to find what they need without asking a million questions, it also makes cleaning up quicker.

The mini studio in the cabinet

When painting and drawing sessions are frequent, it may be time for a full-time studio (a very small one). Let a pair of cabinets house it all. The activity is easy to contain, and can be taken out and hidden away in no time.

You can also use the space to house your work items such as folders, chargers or stationary.

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.
