Why startups should hack IKEA for the ultimate office space

You have a small business idea and you have just moved into a new space. Your team, no matter how small it is, is excited. With a business so early in its makings, costs are high while profits are low. Nonetheless, even with these constraints, you have to create an office space that is fresh and inviting. 

The early stages of a business are when people need the most inspiration. So here is a practical hack we created for IKEA furniture to create the ultimate office space. 

The ultimate hack is an idea we named Norse Interiors. Not only are we a brand that focuses on sustainability, but we have created the best solution to update your Ikea furniture. Many small-scale businesses initially purchase Ikea drawers for storage space. It may look a little bland and uninviting, which is the only downfall. So that's where we come in to save the day. 


Make it custom to your business

 At Norse, we customize storage spaces with the doors, top panels, side panels, legs and pulls for the Besta and Malm products from IKEA. Here are examples of the Besta, without customization, used for storage space.

A bit bland, right?

This same Besta Product can be spiced up with a custom design that shouts personality. With Norse, you can choose the pattern, color, and accessories of surfaces and handles. Here at Norse, we can provide over 1000 variations for your storage cabinets. Updating your furniture has never been easier and more customizable.
