Living in self-isolation has given many interior design fanatics like me the perfect opportunity to do an IKEA run and start redecorating. Not only is it rare that you actually have time to assemble and reshuffle all your furniture, but it also makes the whole experience of staying at home a lot more exciting.

It’s perfect timing that IKEA has also dropped a whole range of new items. If you’re too lazy to browse through the many products on IKEA’s website, have a look at this list of items that you can order online to kickstart your home transformation today!


1. Raskog Trolley

If you’re looking for extra storage space, the Raskog Trolley has you covered. Whether it be to store your stationary in the study, utensils in the Kitchen or toiletries in the bathroom- this trolley is versatile and can be used for a range of purpose. It also features wheels so you can easily manoeuvre it around and it comes in an on trend grey-green colour that will be sure to add some personality to your room.

2. Flisat Children’s Table

With most kids being home schooled at the moment, parents are no doubt running out of ideas on how to entertain them. The Flisat table offers the perfect work and play space for your kids, and is a perfect size as well. The added bonus is that you can clip on the Trofast storage boxes under the desk so that you can eliminate any mess or clutter made by your kids.  

3. Svensas Memo Board in Black

It’s too easy to fall into the habit of sleeping in, being disorganised and unmotivated when working from home. I find that visual management is a great way to organise your day, and the Svensas Black Memo Board will be your best friend when it comes to this. Not only is it magnetic but it also functions as a chalkboard, so you can hang up any important memos and write out any reminders or things to do.

4. Skubb Box Set of Six in White

If you find your drawers are getting cluttered and that everything you put in there seems to disappear into a bottomless pit, it’s time that you declutter them. There’s no better tool to help you with this than the Skubb Box Set of drawer dividers.  With these boxes you can easily organise your clothes, your bathroom drawers and even toys in your kids playroom.

5. Livboj Wireless Charger Black

If you’re still using a charger that plugs into your phone – you’re doing it wrong! Most of us will be familiar with the struggle of needing to charge your phone but the plug point being way too far away to reach. The Livboj wireless charger is the solution to all your wire related problems. The charger is compatible with iPhone 8/Samsung Galaxy s6’s and any newer models, and comes in a slim compact design that can easily fit in your pocket.  

6. Undvika Corner Bumper

You’re half asleep, it’s pitch black, and you’re trying to make your way to the kitchen for a midnight snack. Then you feel it, the sharp excruciating pain of stubbing your toe on the corner of the wall. If this story triggered painful flashbacks to the many times this has been you, consider investing in the Undvika corner bumpers. This clever gadget will make sure your toes never have to feel such pain again.

7. Skarsta Sitting/Standing Desk

It’s no secret that standing rather than sitting at a desk has been proven to have many health benefits such as reducing back pain and risks of heart disease. The Skarsta sitting/standing desk allows you to enjoy these benefits at the pull of a lever. You don’t have to use it for work only, as by adding drawers and a mirror it can easily transform into a dressing table or a bench for arts and crafts.

8. Komplement Clothes Rack

Do you have extra unused space in your cupboard? Don’t let it go to waste and install the Komplement Clothes rail there instead. For just twelve dollars, you could score yourself extra hanging space. You can also get creative with the rack, for instance, think about hanging this rack on your bedroom wall and pairing it with hangable plant pots to add some extra green to your room.
