Create an on/off hobby wall

Encourage creativity with easy access to make it simple to find an outlet for your creativity. Here we give you some tips on how to set one up in your living room.

Encourage creativity with a permanent art wall that lets you create in an instant! Just store your art on a stylish picture ledge such as IKEA MOSSLANDA black picture ledge.

Create a permanent art wall that you can hide behind a curtain when you’re not using it, such as IKEA LEJONGAP curtains in a dull green hue.

Enjoy some distraction-free time.

Kick-start your artistic skills with a project that you never need to set up or put away. Use your hands and set yourself free on the paper. When you’re finished for the day, simply pull the curtain closed to enjoy instant calm.

Set up your supplies

Attach a roll of paper to the wall so you always have something handy to draw, paint or sketch on. Hang up bigger brushes and keep smaller ones in glass containers ready for when inspiration strikes. Then use a picture ledge to display your finished art work.

Maximise functionality with flexible furniture

Let a drawer unit on casters work as both a desk with storage and a smart place to put your gadgets (and charge your smartphone at the same time). When your art project is in ‘off’ mode the drawer unit works as a stylish coffee table and the flower still life makes a welcome addition to your living room deco.

Charge your tech gadgets on a smart lamp. Try IKEA HEKTAR white work lamp with wireless charging! Just put your phone on the lamp’s base.

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.
