Being an Ikea addict is totally fine, as it’s the biggest and most popular furniture store in the world.

Founded in 1943, in Almhult, Sweden, Ikea has certainly grown into the biggest chain of furniture superstores in the world.

I guarantee, that most of you can’t correctly pronounce the name of a single piece of furniture and you’ve got a secret stash of those little hexagonal wrenches and thoughts of mini meatballs smothered in lingonberry sauce dancing through your head. Yep, that’s the sign of an addict.

If you’re expecting kids, or if you have them already, and perhaps you want to spice up their room with something really cool. Here are some ideas for you to borrow, and to keep with the theme, they’re all from IKEA!
