Just Because you Have a Small Space Doesn't Mean you Can't Entertain
The IKEA Home Tour Squad has five quick tips for entertaining in a small space! Create more flexibility by having a chair near your sofa like the IKEA EKENÄS chair for more conversational seating. Footstools like the EKENÄS ottomans can be used for additional seating and tucked away when not needed. Portable nesting tables like the IKEA RISSNA coffee tables can help clear clutter and provide plenty of surface area for drinks and snacks. Finally, if you need to convert your living room to a guest room, use a sleeper sofa bed like the FRIHETEN with storage space underneath for pillows and linens and everything else your guests need to be comfortable.

Tips and Tricks
Meet the Squad
Our team of IKEA® experts are traveling across the country helping families tackle home challenges with design makeovers that have smart solutions to make everyday life at home better.
Anthony is excited to join the Home Tour Squad this year as a designer and to have the opportunity to bridge both his creative ambitions with those tied more solidly in connecting and creating relationships with people. An artist at heart, he loves a good paint brush, but can be equally tempted by a good meal or a good show (best if combined).
Rocky has a passion for helping families achieve a better life at home. He enjoys working with a team to help families tackle their design challenges while creating fun and engaging videos that empower so many different people to do the same. In his spare time, Rocky loves traveling to new cities, composing music, making short films and spending time with his husband.
Whitney is a Southern Californian IKEA Interior Designer. She believes the perfect space is the one you feel most comfortable in and represents your own unique personality. She is grateful to have a job that allows her the freedom to express herself and looks forward to many new experiences as she travels across the country doing what she loves.
Stephanie has a passion for encouraging people to tackle home challenges in a smart and simple way. Working with families and inspiring others to improve their home is a rewarding and enlightening experience. Along with interior design, she enjoys printmaking, ceramics and has a fondness for cats and squirrels.
