6 cool items from IKEA for those who want to simplify life
one Light-blocking curtain «Bengta», 1,199 rubles
This ordinary at first glance curtain is very convenient in everyday life. It is made of laminated material that does not crumble if cut off. And this means that you no longer need to hem the curtains and adjust them in length. You can simply arm yourself with scissors and do everything in a matter of minutes — the edge will remain even, and the threads will not stick out. Another bonus: this fabric does not let in light in the same way as blackout curtains.

2 Portable induction panel «Tillreda», 7,999 rubles
Everyone who has dealt with induction cookers knows how convenient it is to use them. You can set a timer, and the gadget will turn off exactly when needed; boiling liquid will not flood or extinguish the burner. A portable model is useful not only in the country. For example, this two-burner hob can fully replace a stationary hob in a small kitchen. Or use it as an extra: take it out when you need to cook many dishes at once (for example, for a holiday). The panel does not heat up during operation, so it can be removed immediately after cooking.

This is convenient if you need, for example, to urgently turn off the iron or start the coffee maker when you drive up to the house, so that everything is ready for your return.

You can adjust the tilt, push and pull the mirror without touching the surface with your hands — cleaning will become easier. And the magnifying side will come in handy during makeup and hygiene procedures: you don’t need to look in your cosmetic bag every time or bring an additional accessory from another room. This mirror can be used both as an addition to the main one, and on its own — for example, if shelves hang above the sink.
