Is there anything better than super impressive IKEA hacks? I mean, they’re usually pretty inexpensive, relatively quick, and provide plenty of opportunity for impressing family and friends with your craftiness. Here are a list of my absolute favorites, from simple to a little more complicated, they’re all totally awesome. Make sure you pin your ideas so you can come back to them later, as you’re wandering around IKEA (or, even better, making a game plan for your trip there)!
I adore this! Sure, a ready-to-go Little Tikes kitchen set is super fun, but I’m a total sucker for a miniature version of the kitchen I’d want in real life. I mean, come on… the subway tile? Farmhouse style kitchen sink? Ugh, SO cute! And so simple. Having a play kitchen this beautiful will only lead to one thing: wanting to whip up yummy treats in the kitchen (like this or this!) just like mom or dad! Future Food Network star in the making!
Ikea Latt Table Hacks
There are so many Latt table hacks out there. And I get why: it’s simple and so inexpensive! We actually did this hack for our oldest daughter as a birthday gift when she turned two. I cannot tell you how much our little Latt table got used and how cute it looked sitting out in the open. Since then, so many awesome other hacks have been done. Here are my favorites…
This would be perfect for my kids. We go through so many sheets of paper… so the paper roll idea here is awesome. First, I know they’d adore the novelty of having a “giant” sheet of paper to illustrate. Second, kids need more paper? Just pull!
And just when I thought the art table was brilliant, I found this. Are you kidding me!? My three oldest kids spend probably 40% of their free time coloring, and the remaining is spent almost entirely on building with LEGOs. So obviously this means I’d better start buying Latt tables in bulk. Truly, for the inexpensive cost of a Latt table, I feel like I’ve got a little Oprah in me… “You get a LEGO table! And YOU get a LEGO table! And YOU get a LEGO table!!!” Okay, so maybe that would be excessive. But it might actually be a decent idea and result in a whole lot less fighting among my Master Builders.
Can you say “simple”? Seriously, so easy. But so organized and beautiful and handy and helpful. My kids always ask to bring along a toy anytime we hop in our van, no matter how short the trip. And, inevitably, someone always drops said toy and can’t reach it. Hopefully, this would help curb some of that by providing a spot for allthethings. Not to mention, I love the idea of putting some art/drawing supplies within reach for them on long car rides.
When our four little ones were infants, they each slept in a bassinet in our bedroom, next to my side of the bed. However, I always thought those cribs that sidled right up to my side of the bed looked so handy. Here’s a fabulous IKEA hack using the Sniglar crib.
KURA Reversible Bed Hacks
The number of incredible IKEA hacks for the KURA bed are seriously endless. Not to mention, FUN!
Play house, plus slide, PLUS a train track running around the top?! Amazing. Except, excuse me while I play devil’s advocate here: would any toddler ever get any sleep if this were their bed? It’s that awesome.
This one is so stinking cute, it hurts. I know my six year old would be swooning over every inch! And can we just talk about the use of wallpaper inside? Oh my.
This Kura hack gives a serious nod to my favorite Pottery Barn Kids loft bed option, just with a cheaper price tag. And I recognize most of what I’ve shown you here today has been about how “cute” each hack looks, but let’s get practical, shall we? What I love about this hack is that it’s a bunk bed set-up. Our four kids share two rooms, so bunk beds are ideal in our current arrangement. The other thing I love is the distance from the floor to the bottom and top bunks. With small children, there is at least a small concern about falling out of bed or off ladders on bunks. These, however, are relatively close to the floor — so less worry in that respect.
Practicality aside and mega-bonus, though? It’s definitely wicked cute!
This hack is super sweet and super simple. Love the adorable rainbow! This would be a piece of cake to knock out during a nap time all by yourself!
