small space inspiration from ikea’s 2017 catalogue

Love them or not, IKEA is great at offering design inspiration for small spaces, particularly for those with less substantial budgets. More than ever, their 2017 catalogue seems to embrace micro living.

Askenäset bed

Yes, that looks to be a Murphy-style bed — always a favourite in the smallest of spaces.

Hemnes / Hagaviken sink cabinet

Despite being shown on its own with lots of free space, this tiny sink cabinet with storage is less than 25″ wide and is about 13″ deep. (The product description shows two different measurements, 12-5/8″ and 13-3/8″.)

Kvistbro storage tables, in various sizes and colours

The Kvistbro storage table can be a handy addition, though everyone will be able to see what you’re attempting to stash away.

Eket cubes

Available in multiple sizes and colours, cubes are a versatile addition to any space. They can display art or collections, be used in lieu of drawers or shelves in a closet, create a drop zone, or even become functional artwork themselves.

I’m generally not a fan of upholstered seating from IKEA, and I’ve not personally tested the comfort of this collection. That said, the pieces are highly functional and can definitely be customised to any space.

Mirror

A mirror always comes in handy. With its simple storage, this mirror would be a great addition to a vanity, bathroom, or even foyer.

Odger chair

The Odger chair may look like any other, but it’s composition is what makes it special — 30% wood fibre and 70% recycles bottles.
