Crisis centres provide safe shelter and support for anyone trying to break out of unhealthy and violent relationships. To create a feeling of homeliness for those in need, IKEA has completed a makeover of Tallinn Women’s Crisis Centre within the framework of the initiative "Notice violence". In total, we have invested more than 29 000 euros in the improvement and renovation works. During the makeover, a new look was given to four family rooms, two bathrooms, a hallway, and a kitchen with a living room.
Saving water in the bathroom is an easy, hands-on way of being more efficient with the use of resources at home. Add the energy savings from heating less water and it’s clear that this can mean a lot for your wallet too.
Heavy-duty areas of the home, like these, can easily become bogged down with things like grubby shoes and haven’t-had-a-chance-to-iron-them-yet piles of laundry. This traditional-style home shows how you can use storage to your advantage in these areas, with charming additions here and there to bring in a balance of both hard-working and good-looking.
