Hello there (or as they say in IKEA, Hej!)
This page is meant to help you get off the ground and hacking in no time.
First, what is an IKEA hack?
But if you’re new here and you’re wondering what the heck is an IKEA hack, we’d say it’s a modification of an IKEA product. It could range from a repurposing, reassembly, upgrade, update, personalisation or the creation of something totally new. Still don’t get it? A quick browse may help.
Before you start hacking, a caution.
Hacking can eat up all your leisure hours. It can also rubbish your IKEA furniture. It can destroy the structural integrity of the product and compromise its safety standards. Hacking has its risk. So always check, double check and err on the safe side.
You have a hack. How do you share it?
Righto! We would love to see it. Just shoot us an email. Submission details here.
You love it here! How do you get all the good stuff?
Glad you asked. There are many ways to get in on the action. You can sign up for our FREE weekly email newsletter, comment on posts, help fellow hackers with their projects, connect with us via our social media channels, shop on Amazon to support the site or drop us a line to tell us how we’re doing.
Bookmark us and drop by for fresh new hacks every day. We post a new hack every Monday to Friday, and IKEA related news or Jules’ personal scribbles as and when it happens. So there’s always something new in here.
