We love IKEA furniture because it’s stylish, functional, and most important of all, inexpensive. But buying your furniture from IKEA also means you can see them in most homes across America. What can you do to make them truly your own? Just take a look at some of these brilliant Ikea hacks to get inspiration.
1) IKEA Bekvam Stool
The simple and plain stool gets a lovely upgrade with this brilliant hack. Just a creatively simple juxtaposition of the stools resulted in this functional and fashionable bookshelf that’s a great addition to any room. Add in a few picture frames or a vase with fresh flowers to finish the look in style.
2) IKEA Ingo Table
A fresh coat of varnish instantly transformed this regular work table into a pretty dining table. The matching four wooden chairs made it all cozy and inviting. It’s perfect for your breakfast nook, and will work in small spaces as well.
3) IKEA Fintorp Rail
The Fintorp Rail is a favorite because of its many other uses around the home. Check it out as it is transformed into this great-looking caddy for your condiments, cutlery, or even small kitchen houseplants. It’s just one great idea out of the dozens that you can still make with your own Fintorp Rail.
4) IKEA Raskog Utility Cart
This all-around utility cart enjoys a fun makeover with just a few strips of color in the middle. Now it functions as a little herb garden on wheels! Isn’t it wonderful that you can easily roll your garden to any part of the house?
5) IKEA Lack Side Table
This no-nonsense side table enjoys a pretty pop of accent color and a sturdier base. We love how this has become such an accent piece to the room without having to do so much to it. It’s such a clever and inexpensive way to revamp something ordinary-looking into something so chic and stylish.
6) IKEA Ottava Lamp
The new copper finish truly gave these Ottava Lamps such a fashionable and vintage look. It’s a great addition to a somewhat plain and basic-looking kitchen with modern kitchen equipment. The copper gives the space more character, and looks so much better in a kitchen setting with a high ceiling like this.
7) IKEA Tall Billy Bookcase
Who would’ve thought a tall Billy bookcase can look so amazing as a pantry cabinet? It’s such a clever and useful hack that every homemaker should have at home. Just imagine all the things you can store inside this lovely pantry cabinet!
8) IKEA Short Billy Bookcase
If someone told us that the short Billy bookcase from IKEA can be turned into a kitchen island as beautiful as this, we wouldn’t have believed it. But here it is — a bookcase turned kitchen island! Such a clever trick that will look wonderful in any size kitchen.
9) IKEA Bekvam Kitchen Cart
With the wheels removed and a fresh new coat of paint, what used to be a Belvam kitchen cart now functions as a charming side / coffee table. You can opt to keep the original color, or paint it in a different one that will go better with your interiors. It’s so inexpensive but absolutely gorgeous!
