Love having a fireplace but the house doesn't come with one? Well, you can always make a DIY faux fireplace.
Here's how I built it out of IKEA METOD kitchen cabinets. (If you're in the US, you can use the SEKTION cabinets.)
IKEA items used:
Scripto took the KOARP armchair with a metal frame and give it a warm, mid-century modern style. The end result looks like a designer armchair at a fraction of the price.

When I did a search, I found over 280,000 posts on #ikeahacks!
So, before the ye...
IKEA TRYSIL wardrobe saved from landfill and converted into a retro arcade games machine.
We were dismantling our son's TRYSIL Wardrobe to remove it from his room. It had been good wardrobe but the backing had started to continuously fall away.
The IKEA DUKTIG. Undoubtedly the king of play kitchens.
Chances are, if you've bought the toy kitchen, you would have searched Pinterest for hack ideas and found thousands of IKEA DUKTIG play kitchen pins.

"Has anyone got any ideas of what I could use for storage in this cupboard?"

IKEA happiness hunters spent two weeks in Denmark looking for the hygge that seems so elusive to the rest of the world.

Bet you never knew your sofa armrests were prime storage space.

Our DIY Cat House project makes use of the IKEA BEKVÄM stool, with the space divided into two.
A "Päls Hem" aka Fur House.

Let's address the PAX wardrobe bulge and sag problems.
I did these mods, because in my opinion, there are two big problems with the PAX system: the back and the shelves.
1. The backer board is thin and not rigid. Over the time it deforms. It ...

The IKEA TRAMPA doormat is one of the best around. It's made from renewable material (coir fibers) and comes with a non-slip backing.
The plain coir doormat is so easy to keep clean too. Just shake it or vacuum the dust off.
Alas, a silent and glow in the dark clock.
I wanted a clock for our bedroom that is silent and tells the time in the dark without lighting up the whole room.
The ones I found were either too expensive or I did not take fancy in them.
Consider this a PSA: If you live in the US and are looking to get some IKEA pieces, just hold on to your horses and wait one more week. By then, it'll be time for IKEA Black Friday Sales and Cyber Monday Deals.
Offers will begin from Nov 27 and ...
