Episode 406

Episode 406 of the IKEA Home Tour Series welcomes Eileen and John, a couple who lost their home to Hurricane Sandy and had to start over in Staten Island, New York. With a business opportunity ahead, Eileen and John sought out the help of the IKEA Home Tour Squad to give their back bonus room the perfect makeover so Eileen can start teaching art and sewing classes.

With the help of the Squad, Eileen was able to create the perfect craft room for her business. To accommodate projects of all sizes, the Squad integrated small storage cabinets, pegboards, and folding tables. For larger projects and groups of people, the Squad added NORDEN gateleg tables that feature small storage cabinets for materials and accessories. To maximize the bonus room space, the Squad also added INGATORP drop leaf tables with folding drop leaves on either side for extra space. To keep the office organized and allow for easy movement, the Squad added TERJE folding chairs and BJÄRNUM folding hooks. This way, students can pull out the chairs when needed and hang them when not in use. To hold all of Eileen’s essential small tools, pegboards were added and customized with trays, file holders, and SKÅDIS containers. VARIERA boxes and utensil trays were also added to store small craft items like beads, buttons, and pearls.

For the larger items Eileen will need, the Squad added an IVAR shelving unit combination to keep materials organized and accessible. Further, a FYNDIG sink was added, making it easy to clean paintbrushes, and RANARP wall clamp spotlights were added overhead the sewing stations to provide light to those working late or needing to focus on a small piece of their project. Eileen and John’s bonus room is now the perfect space to start Eileen’s new business venture. With the help of the IKEA Home Tour Squad, Eileen and John were able to create a craft room that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With the new and improved bonus room, Eileen is able to provide the perfect environment for her art and sewing classes.
