In a rental, owners often opt for modular furniture; contemporary, easy to maintain, and good value for money. In this domain there’s no doubt that the multi-national giant Ikea is in prime position to furnish interiors. The disadvantage of its availability is that we end up finding the same décor everywhere we go. Playing on the popularity of DIY, certain brands have launched into the Ikea Hack. Through ingenuity, they’ve created products that will give basic Swedish furniture a total makeover. Sofa covers, table legs, cupboard fronts, drawer handles... Their motto is customization with originality and style. Stop putting it off, set your rental apart with these 7 brands that will give your standard Ikea furniture that personal touch.
