A desk is a must for almost every home: most of us have, if not a home office, then at least a home office corner. If you’re ready to do it yourself, IKEA is your way – this furniture can easily be hacked to fit your space, or you can even create your own desk from various IKEA items that you have on hand. Here are the coolest ideas we found on the internet – choose and craft!
IKEA desk hacks
Which IKEA desks can you hack? Any kind of desks, actually! Grab your Micke, Gruvan and Kallax desk and adapt it to your interior. The easiest way to do this is by painting or coloring. If the usual repainting isn’t for you, try color blocking which is a hot trend. You can also paint or stain just one drawer or legs and keep the tabletop contrasting. Spray the legs with some metallic paint and you will get a cool and glamorous look. Cover a drawer or your table top with contact paper, or spruce the table top with gold leaf to make it shiny and bright.
Desks with IKEA items
If you don’t have a desk to renovate, make your own with IKEA items you have. If you need a lot of storage space, consider using dressers as legs – Tarva, Malm, and other dressers or sideboards – and just put a tabletop on top. If you need a sleek desk with storage space, an IKEA Alex Ekby shelf is for you – just stand it on its feet and voila! Do you prefer lighter designs? Buy hairpin or Lerberg trestle legs and add a Linnmon tabletop or take a tabletop from an IKEA item – a coffee or dining table that you don’t need. Get inspired!
