The IKEA Home Tour Squad took a trip to Miami, FL for Episode 117 to help two brothers, Matthew and Santiago, makeover their shared bedroom. These two had outgrown their bedroom, with Matthew entering middle school and Santiago in fourth grade. With limited desk space and a cluttered closet, the two were struggling to have an organized and functional space. The Squad began by introducing the TROFAST unit with toy storage bins. This gave Matthew and Santiago the much needed storage space for their building blocks.
For additional storage space, the Squad installed two separate PAX units featuring drawers and shelves to keep everything organized, and with a ten-year warranty. To give the brothers a comfortable and fun place to sleep, the Squad added the NORDDAL bunkbed. This bunkbed is made of solid wood and can easily be converted to two twin beds when the boys get older. To give the boys a space to do their homework, the Squad chose the LINNMON / ALEX table. This table features a dry erase surface, giving Matthew and Santiago a place to be creative and draw. Thanks to the IKEA Home Tour Squad, the brothers now have a functional, organized, and fun shared bedroom. With the addition of storage and homework space, the brothers can now easily transition into the next phases of their lives.
