Small, Multi-Purpose Living Room Ideas - IKEA Home Tour (Episode 314)

20 Dec 2019

In episode 314 of the IKEA Home Tour Series, the Squad works with Dax and Margaux to best utilize the living room in their 500 square foot tiny home.

Dax and Margaux live with several canine companions in the Pacific Northwest. With degrees in horticulture and sustainability, living with a small environmental footprint is important to both. Their tiny home keeps energy costs down, but makes it difficult to coexist with their dogs, who end up taking over the multi-purpose living room.

To tackle this problem, the Squad came in and chose the SVALNÄS wall mounted shelving system, creating ample storage as well as a wall mounted workspace. The HOLMSUND Sleeper Sofa also helps to create a truly multi-purpose space, converting from sofa to guest bed with ease, while giving space for linen storage within. With these and other creative living room ideas, Dax and Margaux can make the most of their small home, and have a comfortable and sustainable space for themselves and their four-legged friends.
