The myriad bank holidays in April and May offer ample opportunity for DIY – or, much more creatively, a bedroom makeover.
You can create your ultimate urban pad sleeping sanctuary with a little help from the creative types at IKEA, who have come up with some bedroom layout ideas to browse online.
Each room set up has furniture and storage ideas. From customisable wardrobes that will fit around your architecture, to standalone pieces that will form a focal point for a new colour scheme, you can inject a little Swedish style into your bedroom and makeover your room in little more than a three-day weekend.
The pictured ‘Artistic inspiration’ layout features the PAX HEMNES wardrobe, £275.75, and the HEMNES chest of six drawers, £141.96.
If the thought of your local IKEA on a bank holiday fill you with horror, remember you can now buy everything for your bedroom online, from beds and mattress to storage and textiles. You can also plan out your makeover using the free online PAX planning tool, available at www.IKEA.co.uk/paxplanner.
