IKEA may be the most popular piece of furniture in the world, but it tends to be plain and neutral, so many homeowners choose to hack it. Hacking not only allows you to change the look of the furniture, but also how it is used. You’ll see both types of hacks in this roundup – and they’re all for bathrooms.
If you need a vanity, you can make it from IKEA items – IKEA Kallax units, Bekvam carts, Hemnes sink cabinets or even silver ones. Metod cabinets can also be wall mounted to create a stylish floating vanity. How can you hack these items? Stain, repaint, add a chic countertop, cut out the stool to accommodate a sink. Most of these pieces have storage – open storage – where you can store towels, soaps and other items.
No bathroom can do without storage units, so you can store Kallax shelves, IKEA lacquer shelves, IKEA trones, Fintorp caddies and other items. Add galvanized pipes to the paint shelf and create a large shelving system. IKEA Trones can be painted and wall mounted. Toilet paper organizer holders can be attached to the wall. Pluggis system and Knagglig boxes can be attached to the walls or hooks to hold small things. Get creative and make something that best suits your bathroom.
Make a mat out of IKEA Platta decking, a Bekvam spice rack can be turned into a toilet paper holder as can the Grundtail rail. An IKEA Heine bookcase can be transformed into a stylish and simple caddy. Various holders and rails can be spray painted with fancy metallic paint to hold your towels and other items.
