We’re curious about flexible ways to divide the spaces we live in

Whether you live in a large house or a one-room studio apartment, IKEA is always curious about developing ways to work with the space people have at home.

As part of a project looking at different ways to make the best use of available space, we asked people how they might use a sliding wall solution – for example, to hide a wall of shelves, create a walk-in closet, or even an extra room.

56% said they'd like to divide one of their rooms into two spaces

It was perhaps not surprising that most support came for dividing one room into two. Our teams will continue to explore the needs of flexible space-dividers and develop solutions that make it easier for people to create homes that work for them.
