Awkward Living Room Design Ideas – IKEA Home Tour (Episode 313)

In episode 313 of IKEA Home Tour Series, Squad works with Cristina and Krysta to turn their uncomfortable living room design into an elegant and versatile space.

Cristina and Krysta, along with their Whiskey puppy, recently moved to a home. But our partner is perplexed when it comes to the space that serves as a living room, dining room and entrance.

Without an exclusive entrance, shoes, jackets and bags cram the area next to the door, which limits the space of the living room for the unit they desire. The Squad worked with Krysta and Cristina to choose a PAX wardrobe for the entrance. The shallow PAX keeps it out of the way while the front doors provide hidden storage for shoes, bags, jackets and keys. A sectional VALLENTUNA and EKERÖ armchairs create more seats, while a BJURSTA extendable table leaves room for entertainment.

By finding a design to make the most of her multipurpose room, Cristina and Krysta can better fulfill their dream of a new life together.
