Take a nosy on Pinterest and it becomes pretty clear that the IKEA STUVA is one of the most popular storage systems for modern kids’ rooms. Other than being affordable, the STUVA is super versatile, spacious and kid-friendly. The simple, clean lines of its design gives it a stylish minimal look, whilst remaining completely customisable – it’s really up to you how you modify it. Check out some of the unique ways people have styled theirs below!
