What Does IKEA Hack Mean?

IKEA hack is a term used to describe the creative modification of an IKEA product to make it more functional, customized, and/or aesthetically pleasing. It is a popular trend among DIY enthusiasts, who take an IKEA product and put their own spin on it to make it their own. This can be as simple as painting a piece of furniture, or as intricate as combining multiple pieces to make something entirely different. By hacking IKEA products, people can save money while creating something unique and personalized to their needs.

Ikea hacks for kids bedrooms are practically essential.

They have so much stuff. And you want it to look cute, too, right? Ikea hacks to the rescue!

16 Ikea Hacks for Kids Bedrooms

Bed Slats to Wall Organizer

This is crazy brilliant. I say it all the time, get your “Stuff” off the surfaces and on the wall.

This Ikea bed slats hack is a brilliant way to do that. Here it’s mostly craft supplies, but imagine what else this could hold!

You can find the full tutorial on Brit.co.

Sweet Shop

I am seriously in love with how adorable this little pretend sweet shop is.

Or maybe I just want a cupcake really bad. Or both. I got this as a present for a couple of the little girls in my family and they loved it too!

Under the Bed Storage

If your kids room is not super large, you’re going to want to be creative with the storage space.

This underbed storage is part decor, part storage bins.

I love a two for one!

You can find the details on Hey There Home.

Custom Closet

Don’t forget the closet! There’s plenty of personality to be added there.

Or if you don’t have a closet, you could sneak something like this into a corner of the room and suddenly, closet!

A Train Topped Bed

It’s totally Thomas isn’t it? I love the edition of the train tracks on the top of this bed!

And did you miss the slide? You can forget sending your kid to time out in their rooms. This is too much fun!

Easy Organization

I love the bench seat for quiet play and reading.

But I also love that the toys here are also the decor. They add color and cuteness.

A Castle

Wow. This is a whole castle. No kidding.

This is so worth however much work went into it.

A Pretty Play Table

A little paint and a little bit of mod podge. And maybe something to seal it with.

But that’s it! And you have this adorable Ikea hack.

Parking Garage

Every kid would put their cars away if they just had a garage like this to put them in.

I mean, it’s too cute not too!

Lego Storage Cart

I like the idea of the rolling storage cart for kids’ rooms. That way where they put things away is always near them.

They might like to do Legos on the other side of the room. That means it’s a little more work to tidy up after playing if their container is all the way over there…

But if the Lego cart rolls with you, then clean up is easy!

Art Show

Your kids make beautiful things. I know they do.

You can use this Ikea hack to show that beautiful stuff off!

Doll House

A bookcase is perfect for converting to a dollhouse. A little paint and some creative flooring and Barbie is one happy Princess over there.

Under the Sea Fun

If you have a collection of stuffed friends from Ikea, then this might be the inspiration you need so that your kids actually PLAY with those.

Some velcro and some felt and you’re practically done!

A Desk With Storage

I love the idea of adding this type of storage to a desk, especially for kids.

Why? Because, how often are pens, crayons and markers rolling off their desks? A lot. Now they are contained!

In containers.

Spice Rack Bookshelves

There’s two things I love here. I love that the Ikea spice rack hack involves storing books in a kids room from Her Happy Home.

Nightstand Stool

Create a cool kid’s nightstand by using IKEA’s Moppe chest of drawers and Tenhult stool. Secure the two together using wood glue, then paint drawer fronts. Finally, seal it all with a coat of matt varnish to keep it looking new. Or, you could even use washi tape, decoupage paper, or wallpaper to color the drawers! Check it out at Ideal Home UK.
