Show us the apartment in which there is no part of Ikea … When we make a pilgrimage to the Swedish furniture store, we end up with countless scented candles, placemats in all colors, a new houseplant and at least some decorative upholstery. Dreadful. But if it's just as pretty and affordable …

Of course, affordability also has two major drawbacks:

  • 1. With the crowds who shop at Ikea, individuality naturally falls by the wayside. Many first homes look straight from the Ikea catalog - and are therefore very similar. Take your nose: Do you also have these seat cushions lying around on the floor? Nobody really wants to take a seat on it, but we have almost all of them at home.
  • 2. Of course, the quality of the workmanship also corresponds to the price. Really high quality is not there …

So. Fortunately we are here. We'll tell you how you can pimp your Ikea interior with a few clever Ikea hacks so that it not only looks individual, but also extremely exclusive!
