The new, first-of-its-kind planning studio has been specially optimised to address the challenges of living in a small space.

The new studio occupies an area of around 100sq m and will feature a specialist showroom modelled after a 3-room flat complete with virtual setups and inspirations displayed through SmartPhotos, designed by the Livspace Platform who Ikea have partnered with to bring the studio to life.

Innovation lies at the heart of the new studio, the Livspace SmartPhotos allows customers to visualise, plan and budget for their new home designs. Customers can scan any room in the store using QR codes and virtually change the products within that room to fit their preferences, taste and budget.

Jaap Doornbos, IKEA Retail Director, Singapore & Philippines, commented: “We would like to help more Singaporeans realise their dream homes. The new Ikea Planning Studio isn’t just another Ikea store, it’s the future of home planning that caters to every homeowner and wallet size.”
