Are you bored with the look of your kitchen? Are you looking for a way to give it a new, fresh look without spending a fortune? If so, then you may want to consider using some IKEA hacks. These hacks can help you transform your kitchen quickly and easily, and they won’t break the bank.
With IKEA’s kitchen system, you may order their items in a modular fashion, allowing you to purchase the basic cabinet bones from them while also customizing the exteriors and some interior components.
So, if you’re ready to give your kitchen a makeover, here are the crispy hacks you need to know!
#1: Decorative molding or trim can be added to upper cabinets.
Are you sick of dusting the tops of cabinets, or do you have an awkward bulkhead you’d want to cover up?
Your best friends for hiding these spaces and giving your space a sense of purpose will be trim work and molding.
Decostrip or under cabinet light valance adds a final touch to your design, while custom trim pieces can be purchased to fill spaces between upper cabinet tops and ceilings.
#2: Use IKEA base units to make your adorable kitchen island.
With the help of IKEA base cabinets, create your most gorgeous kitchen island while coming up with these ingenious modern kitchen ideas. Paint your cabinet doors with latex paints and add four wooden legs with castor wheels to each corner to make them portable. Use basic hardware like hooks and rails that can match the existing kitchen into new beautiful IKEA kitchen islands.
#3: Customized door style and color IKEA hack for your kitchen.
Making an IKEA hack kitchen absolutely unique in terms of design and color is its beauty. Consider door styles other than those that are offered at large box stores when choosing the door style and color combination that’s perfect for you. Pick from 8 different shaker door styles, such as our Skinny shaker for a contemporary appearance or Decora for a Tuscan kitchen design.
#4: Integrate your IKEA design with floating shelves.
Upper cabinets and floating shelves are frequently used in custom kitchens to balance storage requirements with the possibility of displaying decorative things and breaking up long rows of cabinets. Where possible, remove one or two cabinets and replace them with custom floating shelves that coordinate with your cabinet doors.
Floating shelves are frequently used around windows, on either side of kitchen sinks or ranges, or in pantries to hold jars of baking ingredients.
Simply leave empty wall areas in the layout instead of trying to design shelves using the IKEA planner quickly. Make sure to choose the proper shelf depth and custom length for your needs when ordering your custom door.
#5: IKEA Ivar Hack: Get your shaker-style kitchen pantry.
A quick tip to make your shaker-style kitchen pantry the best:
You can change your existing cabinets to a pantry, also purchase two additional cabinets, and make them into wall cupboards, which can be perfect for utility renovation. Once this modification is done, anchor the piece to the wall using strong hollow wall anchors. Since these cabinets are hefty, you must ensure they are securely fixed.
Then, try to make Shaker-style doors; for this, add 6mm thick by 90mm wide MDF panels. Additionally, the MDF conceals all of the screws and the door gap.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to give your kitchen a new look, consider using some of these IKEA hacks. Your IKEA kitchen may be made yours uniquely with a few reasonable adjustments at a cost well within your renovation budget.
