Let’s dive in!

1. IKEA Metod Entertainment Unit Hack

Why we like it: We really like this IKEA hack that uses two Metod cabinets to create a custom entertainment unit with a built-in look. The attention to detail in this project makes it stand out, effectively turning standard IKEA pieces into a seamless, stylish focal point in the room.

2. IKEA Metod Bar Hack

Why we like it: We’re impressed with this creative IKEA hack for building a bar using Metod units. The choice to construct a bar from IKEA units is smart, especially given the quick weekend turnaround.

Painting Axstad doors black as a cost-effective alternative to purchasing pre-made black doors and trim demonstrates resourcefulness and adaptability to budget constraints.

The addition of affordable cornice and skirting from local suppliers, along with the use of Rust-Oleum furniture paint, further enhances the bar’s appearance. Incorporating a mirror back and toughened glass shelves from a local glass supplier, and a worktop offcut, adds a professional touch.

3. IKEA Linnmon Hack

Why we like it: We like this IKEA hack for its simplicity: a cool table base topped with a LINNMON Tabletop.

It’s a clever, easy idea that achieves a modern look, showing how IKEA products can be seamlessly combined for stylish, custom furniture.

4. IKEA Crib Hack

Why we like it: We like this IKEA hack for its straightforward and practical approach to creating a crib fallout protection.

The use of Skadi’s Hole Plate, which is free-standing, makes it an easy solution without the need for drilling or sawing.

This idea is appealing for its simplicity and effectiveness, cleverly providing safety.

5. IKEA Metod Bench Hack

Why we like it: We like this IKEA hack for its clever use of Metod cabinets to create a bench with built-in storage.

It’s a smart way to manage clutter while adding extra seating to a room. The color gives the bench a modern and stylish look.

This hack is perfect for those seeking a functional yet aesthetically pleasing storage solution.
