At the start of the year, you’ve probably taken a look at your home and thought, “I need new lighting” or “We should figure out something for that awkward nook” or simply, “My craft room is a mess/ needs storage”. Well, let 2018 be the year to tackle some of these “someday” projects.
Here are 12 IKEA hacks to try this year, one for each month. I hope they’ll start firing some neurons in your right brain.
12 IKEA Hacks to Try in 2018
#1 Upgrade a lamp shade
#2 Add a sideboard
You know, that blank wall that just “needs something”? Well, this is the thing. A sideboard with all the right Scandinavian vibes.
#3 Get your home office in working order
#4 Style your office supplies
#5 Organise your craft space
Big crafting plans for 2018? That calls for a big, beautiful craft table. We know you’ll adore the large work top and all that storage, storage, storage beneath.
#6 Make it pretty
#7 Add shelving to your walls
#8 Another way to add shelving
Use ropes, IVAR planks and voilà, a minimalistic hanging wall shelf that looks as good as the things it displays.
#9 Add a burst of pattern
What a lovely way to add some punch to your dining table. These DIY scalloped placemats will definitely get your guests talking.
#10 Squeeze in a breakfast nook
#11 Wrap it up
#12 Make someone happy
This is the hack your cat has been waiting for. Make a cat tree with hammock from the BEKVÄM step ladder. The new IKEA VILTO storage stool also seems designed for this. And if you prefer, the hammock can be hung from a coffee table instead.
And that’s my suggestions for IKEA hacks to try in 2018. Which one(s) gets on your Hack List? Tell us about your IKEA hack projects in the comments below.
