Let's face it, we all LOVE an IKEA trip, even with kids in tow it is possible to have a pleasant shopping experience with their child friendly eating areas and various play options to amuse them while you browse. Their ethos and varying price range makes it possible for even those on the tightest of budgets to have a stylish home. In our feature we wanted to demonstrate the versatility of their products; how they can be used for very different tasks and for creating completely different looks. 

Now we want to challenge you, our readers, to show how you've styled your existing IKEA wares in your space, and then tell us what else you would love to do to refresh your home this Spring / Summer. Simply share your images on Instagram featuring at least one IKEA item, and include the hashtag #ikearoomrefresh with your caption. (Ideally we'd love you to tag us in - @91magazine and @ikeauk - so we can be alerted to your uploads)
