(1) 6 IKEA Hacks For Kids

Why we like it: We love these IKEA hacks for their clever, space-saving solutions for kids:

  1. The Sigfinn monitor stand as a toy car ramp adds playful utility.
  2. The Ostbit plate rack, repurposed for book and puzzle storage, is brilliantly versatile.
  3. Transforming the Snudda Lazy Susan into a rotating bookcase is innovative for small spaces.
  4. The Kvissle letter tray in a Kallax unit for puzzle storage? Genius organization.
  5. Doubling toy storage with Kallax inserts is a simple yet effective tweak.
  6. A DIY learning tower from Bekvam and Oddvar showcases creative, budget-friendly ingenuity.

These hacks are not just functional; they’re smart, cost-effective, and perfect for playful, organized spaces.

(2) IKEA Besta Floating TV Cabinet

Why we like it: This IKEA setup shows how a few simple choices can create a modern and chic TV wall unit:

  • The BESTA composition with 4 cubes, offers a sleek and practical base.
  • Adding BJÖRKÖVIKEN doge model doors enhances the unit with a refined look.
  • The custom-made top at 240×42, which you can have cut at your hardware store, adds a seamless and personalized finish.
  • A touch of paint introduces a stylish color palette.

This combination results in an original piece of furniture that’s both stylish and functional. It’s a great example of using basic IKEA elements to create something unique and high-end looking.

Why we like it: We found the use of IKEA Blanda bowls and a marble cutting board to create a side table quite creative. It’s a clever example of repurposing everyday items into stylish furniture. The contrast between the sleek bowls and the elegant marble offers a modern aesthetic.

This hack demonstrates how combining simple, affordable pieces can result in a unique, eye-catching addition to home decor. It’s a resourceful and inventive approach to DIY furniture.

(4) 3 Side Table IKEA Hacks

Why we like it: In these 3 IKEA side table hacks, there’s a powerful display of creativity.

The standout? The lampshade coffee table – a clever twist on the mundane.

Then there’s the guest bedroom’s bedside tables, holding more than just lamps, but sentimental value.

It’s not just furniture; it’s about creating something you can’t put a price tag on. It’s a common thread for those who see beyond the function, to the effort embedded in each item.

Sure, your house gets filled, but each piece tells a part of your story. That’s the story worth telling.

(5) IKEA Advent Calendar Hack

Why we like it: Can you believe it’s already time to think about Christmas?

This IKEA Hack using the SENAPSKÅL greenhouse as an advent calendar caught our attention.

Spraying it in a festive color like green turns it into a unique and eye-catching way to count down the days. It’s perfect for housing 24 small gifts, adding a personal touch to the holiday season.

We love how it transforms a simple item into a special, seasonal centerpiece. It’s a fun, imaginative way to build excitement leading up to Christmas.
