Welcome to the top 5 IKEA hacks of the week – January 21st Edition

Let’s dive in!

1. IKEA Besta Cabinet Hack

Why we like it: This DIY IKEA TV wall hack is a clever and cost-effective project. Using three IKEA Besta cabinets as a base and modifying Billy cabinets, it creates a functional and sizable entertainment center for about €1500.

The process involves sanding, plastering, and painting in Sandy Beach color, ensuring a neat finish. While the slat wall is sourced from Noakk, its integration with the IKEA elements is seamless.

The smart cable management and the large dimensions of 480 cm wide and 240 cm high make it a practical yet striking feature in any living space. This project showcases how IKEA furniture can be effectively customized to suit specific home entertainment needs.

2. IKEA Library Wall Hack

Why we like it: We’re truly impressed by this IKEA bookcase hack, which transforms a simple shelving unit into a stunning home library. The meticulous care in sealing and redirecting air vents ensures a comfortable reading environment without any HVAC complications.

The addition of a custom ladder from Alaco Ladder in Southern California is a thoughtful touch, combining functionality with a sleek design.

But the heart of this hack is the personal collection of over 2,000 books! Amazing work.

3. IKEA Molding and Trim Hack

Why we like it: This IKEA hack is a simple way to add style to furniture by attaching moldings to the fronts. The process includes tracing, cutting, gluing, and joining the moldings.

A primer is applied to the melamine surface, followed by two layers of paint and varnish to ensure durability.

4. IKEA Kallax Hack

Why we like it: This IKEA Kallax transformation is a great example of a simple yet effective hack. The creator took a common IKEA item, the Kallax Shelf, and added a personal touch by making doors with sliders to reduce visual clutter.

The technique of using an iron to fold the edges of the fabric shows attention to detail, ensuring a neat and aesthetically pleasing finish.

With a total cost of just 35 euros, this project proves that you don’t need to spend a lot to significantly enhance the look and functionality of a basic piece of furniture.

5. IKEA Lamp Hack

Why we like it: We have no idea how she did this, but we like the creativity behind this IKEA lamp hack. Using floral wallpaper to transform the SEASON lamp, the project turns a simple lampshade into a statement piece.

The process of customizing the size, folding the wallpaper, and securing it in place is clever and effective.
