Welcome to the Top 5 IKEA Hacks of the Week – December 30th Edition

Let’s dive in!


1. IKEA Besta Window Seat Hack


Why we like it: We like this IKEA hack for its clever use of Besta units to create a cozy window seat. It’s a smart way to repurpose standard furniture into a comfortable, inviting space.

The hack demonstrates how IKEA units can be adapted for custom projects, offering both storage and seating in one.

This approach not only maximizes the functionality of the space but also adds a personal touch to the home. Well done!


2. DIY Industrial Mirror IKEA Hack


Why we like it: We really like this DIY Industrial Mirror IKEA hack for its simplicity and stylish outcome. Using IKEA’s BLODLÖNN mirror plates, sized at 30×30 cm, and crafting a unique frame from bars, creates a chic industrial look.

This approach transforms standard IKEA mirrors into a bespoke piece of decor.


3. IKEA Havsta Media Wall Hack


Why we like it: We’re quite impressed with this DIY media wall IKEA hack for its effective combination of style and utility. Utilizing IKEA’s HAVSTA series – three base cupboards and two with shelves – to construct the frame, resulted in five functional storage units. This is particularly useful for organizing and decluttering the space.

The use of pre-measured groove paneling, which was then primed and painted in a cohesive sage green, adds a polished and custom look.

The addition of wooden shelves enhances the built-in appearance. The plan to add coving further emphasizes the attention to detail in this project.

4. Tonie Shelf IKEA Hack


Why we like it: We like this hack for its simplicity and functionality. It cleverly uses just a few IKEA items: two HÖSSLA bookends, one SNUDDA spinning tray, and one GLADOM table.

The process of attaching the GLADOM table top to the SNUDDA spinning tray is straightforward and effective. The use of bookends to measure and secure the space for the tonie box is smart, especially the idea of using magnetic strips for flexibility.

This hack creates a neat, organized storage solution for tonies, making it both practical and easy to assemble.

5. IKEA Kallax Entryway Hack


Why we like it: Okay… we missed this hack a few weeks ago but we wanted to bring attention to it. This budget-friendly IKEA Kallax entryway console hack is worth checking out. This DIY project not only brings a personalized touch to the entryway but also offers practical storage solutions.

It’s impressive how with a little creativity and effort, an affordable IKEA item can be turned into an attractive, custom-looking piece that enhances the overall look and feel of your space. Great work!
