How do you want your home to be? If you are thinking on the lines of functional and pretty, we bet you are a fan of IKEA’s products (like us!). After a successful stint in Singapore, Livspace and the Swedish furniture mogul are all set to venture into designing Malaysian homes. If you have ever wondered how a home decked up with IKEA furniture would look like, this 2-room condo design will give you a fair idea.

Conceptualised by designers from Livspace, this minimal home features ergonomic furniture from IKEA. Packed with storage, this home looks uncluttered and is easy to maintain. See for yourself; we’ll give you a tour!

#1: Easy-to-maintain Living Area in Shades of Black and Brown

Following an open floor plan, the 2-room condo opens up to a living-cum-dining room. The room is predominantly white but has a brown feature wall, which adds depth to it. 

Look Out For

The living area features IKEA’s 3-seater sofa, Ektorp in hallarp grey, coffee and side tables in black, beige pouffe and rug, and the latest Tagarp lamp. For storage, we can see the Hemnes TV bench, a shelving unit and a ledge. 

The dining area is occupied by a 4-seater black dining set featuring IKEA’s Lisabo table paired with Idolf chairs. A warm pendant light brightens the space.

Design Takeaway

A neutral colour scheme can add sophistication to a compact room without eating up space. 

#2: Grey Kitchen in Grainy Wooden Finish

The kitchen in this 2-room condo design follows an L-shaped layout. The base and overhead IKEA cabinets make sure that there is never a dearth of storage space. To increase the kitchen’s appeal, a combination of glass and wooden shutters are used for the overhead cabinets. 

The backsplash and countertop have the same light wood finish ensuring continuity of design. The light wood, along with the gold handles, breaks the monotony of the grainy grey IKEA kitchen cabinets. 

Look Out For

The corner unit saves space by accommodating kitchen appliances 

Design Takeaway: 

The kitchen is designed keeping ergonomics in mind. The L-shape layout following the golden triangle facilitates an efficient workflow. 

#3: Minimal Bedroom in Beautiful Beiges

While beige is the primary colour of this bedroom, the ceiling, wardrobe and soft furnishings add splashes of white, opening up the space further. 

Look Out For

The bedroom is also has a lot of storage space with the bed and bedside furniture from IKEA’s Malm collection and the large white wardrobe. A combination of ceiling lights, track lights and table lamp liven up this compact bedroom.

Design Takeaway

We love how neutral colours are leveraged to maintain the minimal style in this 2-room condo design.

The second bathroom has a complete light wood laminate finish. A glass partition separates the dry and wet areas in this bathroom. In the wet area, two strips of multi-coloured tiles are used to break the monotony wooden tones. 

Look Out For

We see an optimum use of space in this storage-intensive 2-room condo design. And this bathroom with a Hemnes vanity unit is no exception. 

Design Takeaway

No matter how compact your bathroom is, it still needs storage and you need to find the best way to add it.
