Storage and TV devices

Storage is a must for any space, and living rooms are no exception. There are tons of ideas you can come up with: renovate Expedit, Kallax, Besta, Ivar, Stockholm and other units depending on what you need and what size and style you are looking for. Decals, paint, contact paper, new legs and even countertops give these units a new look and add a chic storage unit to your space.

home bars

A home bar is an optional thing, some of us have it, some don’t, and you may prefer to move it to the dining room or even your office. Either way, stylish house poles can be made from IKEA utility and kitchen trolleys or even Ivar, Kallax, Valje and Vittsjo units if required, reworked with contact paper, spray paints and rollers.

You can also make cool caddies or tables out of Frosta stools or even Eket cabinets. Read some DIYs for these units below the pictures and get crafting!
