MMM: Ikea’s DUKTIG Kitchen Makeover

We’re house-hunting at the moment – potentially on the move to try and get  some more space and a bigger garden for the kids. It was kick-started by the trip we had to the Cotswolds after we realised how much time they spent playing outside and absolutely LOVED the extra space.

Anyway I digress.

It’s become very evident during our house hunting that every* family home in the UK owns the Ikea DUKTIG Play Kitchen (*in a survey carried out by me, of, erm, five properties).

We own it, all of my friends own it, my lovely friend Alison has even waxed lyrical about its sturdy, androgynous charms here.

We initially bought ours for Charlie on his 3rd birthday because it had a lovely, non gender-specific, Scandi-minimal quality to it, but now Lila is the one who’s much more into it (‘Whatchu like tea mummy?).

But WHY didn’t I ever think about customising it? Pinterest is FULL of boards of clever people who’ve done up their DUKTIG and they look ace.

It’s a great buy, really well made and you can do all sorts to it. If you’re one of the 3 households who hasn’t yet bought one, here’s some design inspiration for you.

    Love this feature! What a great idea to customise them- these Pinterest mums are too fabulous! My daughter had a a little wooden kitchen for Christmas – but am tempted to get this Ikea one too – just so I can do a kitchen make-over! Love the black and gold- how luxe!

    Love your posts Erica! Are you coming to Britmums? Would be lovely to see you x

    I hold my hands up, I one of the three that doesn’t! I went for the plastic ELC one which is now in the play house in the garden! I so want one of these now though (for the kids of course!). I am a huge Ikea fan, they can do no wring in my eyes. I just want to customise it now that’s all……!x
