IKEA Releases Instructions for 6 Kinds of Forts You can Build at Home

With many of us being stuck at home since March, some are channeling their inner creativity to make time spent at home worthwhile. 

We’ve seen a rise in baking, cooking and also the much weirder trends such as the dalgona coffee craze; if you find yourself getting short of ideas for yourself and the kids, fear no more, as IKEA has released a new campaign with instructions on how to build 6 different types of furniture forts.

We loved them as kids, so there isn’t a reason to why furniture forts shouldn’t make a comeback this year, especially during quarantine year. 

These designs were created by an ad agency called instinct and they consist of detailed instructions on how to build castles, forts or any furniture forts your imagination can conjure up of.

1) Cave

One of the simplest designs here, this fort requires only a chair, a sheet or blanket and some some sort of heavy object to hold it down to the floor. Lights are optional too if you want some light while reading in your own fort.

2) Camping tent

If you’ve watched the Conjuring 2, you’d recognize this as the home of the “crooked man”. Safe to say, IKEA’s version of it is less scary and contains no “crooked man” of any sorts. Using a clothing rack and some pins, this fort allows for infinite head space.

3) House

As mentioned in its name, here’s where things can get real as the forts now get sturdier. All you need is a table and some sheets or blankets.

4) Wigwam

Here’s where things get creative as you would only need a light stand and of course some sheets. Optional lights too can be added for that aesthetic or ambience that you are looking for.

5) Fortress

We’ve all seen this one, heck, we might’ve even built one of this before. The most simplest of forts, you would only need couch cushions with a sheet over the top and you’re all set.

6) Castle

The best of them all, this fort requires four chairs and some kind of stand in the middle to give it the iconic castle pointed roof.
