Inspiration for a unique children's room desk

Are you looking for a creative design for the children's room and do you want something different from the standard furniture from Ikea? Be inspired by Patrick's project, who created a unique and personal desk for the children's room with the help of OPMAATZAGEN.nl.

Custom sawn wood for a personal touch

This functional piece of furniture combines the versatility of Ikea's Trofast storage solution with the charm of natural wood, accurately cut to size by OPMAATZAGEN.nl. The warm pine carpentry panel gives the desk a rustic and comfortable look that fits perfectly with the atmosphere of a children's room.

The design and details that make the difference

The robust worktops of 18 and 28mm thick pine carpentry panel provide a solid and stable surface for all kinds of children's activities. The natural wood grain and knots of the wood bring nature closer, while the simple but elegant design is reminiscent of the timeless Scandinavian style.

Why make it yourself?

Make your own desk offers numerous advantages. You have the freedom to fully adjust the dimensions to the available space in the nursery. You can also choose the material that suits your budget and taste. Patrick chose the pine carpentry panel because of its warm appearance and affordability.

Style and finish

The desk is an example of Patrick's craftsmanship and eye for detail. The mix of open and closed storage compartments and the subtle integration of the Trofast bins make the desk not only practical but also aesthetically attractive.

The advantages of pine carpentry panel

Pine wood is not only durable and sturdy, but also has a warm and inviting appearance. The 18mm and 28mm timber panel offers the optimal combination of stability and aesthetic value, making it perfect for a desk that needs to be both functional and beautiful.
