This Summer’s Sustainable Essentials At IKEA

Whether you’re looking for outdoor furniture or gearing up for school, drop by IKEA for this season’s must-haves

Summer is the season to enjoy the outdoors.  It’s the time for poolside lounging, entertaining with a grill and getting lost within the pages of a book as you sit on your favorite garden bench.  This time of the year sees many creating meaningful pauses in their lives, spending it in recreation with family, loved ones, or reveling in that much-needed “me time.”

For those who like to roll into the next season prepared, it’s the season to start thinking of the next school year.  Parents know the importance of kitting the kids out with their school essentials to avoid that rushed, panicked feeling weeks before another school year begins.

Perhaps more than parties and lounging, you have decided that this summer for you will be all about home organization.  If you are one of many who have this goal, you value a home with things in order.  Imagine a home for everything within your home.  Having a dedicated space for each item you own makes organization a lot simpler, allowing you the pleasure of having a clutter-free environment, and aiding you in remembering where things are.  Enlist the GRILlLSKAR back panel for your outdoor kitchen, and use it as a perch for cooking utensils and ingredients.  This versatile piece can also be used in your hobby room or your laundry room.  The possibilities are plenty.
