RVN’s IKEA hack.

April 2017
During our recent Chelsea Apartment project we came up against a problem and we’re still rather pleased with the solution so we thought we would share.
Our client wanted her spare room to satisfy many different functions:
– A Reiki treatment room
– A reception for her clients
– An overflow clothes storage room
– An extension of her bedroom
– A spare bedroom for a guest
Enter the IKEA hemnes day bed. With some modification, re-spray, timber trim and new handles we’ve turned an inexpensive day bed into a decent double bed.
Behind the day bed we hid deep clothes storage and by designing a sliding pocket door between the master bedroom and this spare room we extended the master whilst maintaining privacy for guests and clients when closed.
