How to get an IKEA look for your home

Author: dcvision

All of us, at some point in our lives, have dreamt of having a home that looks the best. To build the home of our dreams, we always stroll the market to get the best furniture and other items. But the best place to visit to purchase furniture is the IKEA store. Sitting in the IKEA showroom gives us a surreal feeling. You must have even experienced the feeling of spending your entire day in the showroom. We would say there is nothing wrong with that. The showroom is flooded with the best furniture and other items that you can buy for your home. Not to forget, the showroom looks like a warehouse but manages to give a homey vibe. The vibe is so soothing that it suddenly puts your mind at ease, even despite the large crowd that is present there.

The secret to IKEA’s success is the team of interior designers that the company possesses. The designers have made sure that each and every corner of the showroom is designed in a way that gives physical comfort to the visitors. The entire stores give an aesthetic feel that all of us crave and like the most.

All of us want a similar kind of vibe for our house. But we then stop ourselves, thinking about the amount of money that we will have to invest to get the IKEA look. But this is actually not true. You can achieve the Ikea look for your home by following the below-mentioned tips.

1. Go minimalist

Simplicity is the key to achieving an aesthetic look. Try and opt for colours that are basic both for your walls and floors. Choosing neutral shades is the best choice. But when you go to choose the fabric, opt for more solid colours or patterned single colours. This way, you can blend the basic colour of your floor with the solid colours of your couches or sofa. The reason for focusing on subtle and basic colours is that only these colours can provide a look that is not only aesthetic but also classic.


2. Use loads of wood

IKEA is known for the amount of love that the company has for wood. Wood is lighter than metal and more comfortable than plastic. Another prominent reason for using wood is that wood pieces give a practical look and a sense of security and comfort. Wood also gives a feeling of safety. So, try using wood wherever possible. You can even try wooden flooring if you want to oomph up the vibe of your space. And do not worry about maintaining the wooden floors. IKEA has Zirconio wood effect tiles that give the exact feeling of wooden flooring. So, what are you waiting for? Rush to the market and get wooden effect tiles, and your game is sorted.

3. Add natural accents

Having a room with too many straight lines gives a dull and informal vibe. We obviously do not want our home to give an industrial vibe. So, to get that homely feel, we need to incorporate something that literally adds glamour to your space. This is where accents can help. Adding texture gives symmetry and texture to your space. Woven baskets, rugs, and potted plants are a few options that can help you oomph up your space. Trust us adding all these or a mix of these will definitely give a lively vibe. You can even try some natural materials such as stones to get a different look.



4. Use pastels

You can even try some pastels to get a cosy vibe. Opt for colours like warm yellow, sky blue, and baby pink. These are the best options. All these colours will help you tie everything together. The best part about using these colours is that they give a vibe that is fresh, smooth, and calming. These colours even remind us of nature, and using them in the house is definitely going to give you peace.
