Each room setting at the IKEA Cheras showroom starts off with a plan for the interior designer. This includes gathering information in order to tailor suit affordable solutions to improve the quality of life for local homeowners. Malaysians are without a doubt, a step closer to their dream homes.

To create practical interior design solutions, the interior designer has to pay attention to not only our lifestyles, but also other architectural elements and our living conditions, as well as the challenges we face on a daily basis. Not to mention, taking note of the ideal home we have in mind.

Organising a living space, she discovered, is one of the many areas that IKEA has to focus on. Organising for both adults and children has become easier with innovative and practical storage solutions, available for both large and small spaces of varying styles.

Here are great examples of the showroom setting, where layout and size are based on real terrace houses and studio apartments:

Budget-friendly homeowners can flaunt their collectibles using both open and closed storage compartments. These compartments help to incorporate a modern-industrial at home.

Inspired by a real terrace house in KL, this open-concept living to dining room setting is designed for families who love spending time together. The dining area is connected to a balcony that is used for laundry and gardening purposes. Have children? Here’s how you can add a playful dash of modern colour to your living room.

Who says you can’t have a space dedicated to makeup? Use moveable storage compartments or kitchenettes for a small studio apartment? This way, no space goes to waste. Here’s how you can put every single square metre of space to good use.

For kitchens incorporating both wet and dry, homeowners can go with IKEA’s METOD cabinets. They feature concrete structures that are perfect for the latter type of kitchen. Moreover, varying types of interior organisers to accessorise your drawers with are available. This way you can store both you and your children’s’ tools and utensils systematically in different drawers. These organisers encourage better use of storage space in your kitchen cabinets.

That’s not all. IKEA also offers storage solutions for the master bedrooms, especially for mums with newborns. A dressing table is fitted into the corner, perfect for breastfeeding, personal care, or even for work purposes. The space is furnished with a wardrobe that has an interior with personalised space and functions that suit the needs of two individuals.

Note: Showroom settings may change from time to time.
