If you have a few IKEA parts that you can hack and reuse, you can get very stylish items to decorate your living room. Do you need ideas? Here you are!
Sofas and chairs
The main piece in any living room is a sofa or love seat, and if you’re looking for a cool IKEA sofa hack – here they are! IKEA Ektorp, Stockholm, Karlstad Sofas and Ekebol Couch can be given a completely new look with color, new legs and of course new fabric – reupholster the part to match your room. If you need chairs too, grab a Loksta chair and give it a new life with a new cover or Tullsta chair and cushions, or even re-tie the cushions for a brand new look.
Storage and TV devices
Storage space is a must for any room, and living rooms are no exception. There are tons of ideas you can make a reality: renovate Expedit, Kallax, Besta, Ivar, Stockholm and other units depending on what you need and what size and style you are looking for. Decals, paint, contact paper, new legs and even countertops give these units a new look and give your space a chic storage unit.
A home bar is an optional thing, some of us have it, some don’t, and you might prefer moving it to the dining room or even your office. In any case, stylish house bars can be made from IKEA utility and kitchen trolleys or, if necessary, even from Ivar, Kallax, Valje and Vittsjo units that have been overworked with contact paper, spray paints and rolls.
Coffee and side tables
Last but not least, there are coffee tables and side tables made from IKEA units. IKEA Vittsjo tables can be hacked into stylish coffee tables or tufted stools as needed. You can also make some cool caddies or tables out of Frosta stools or even Eket cabinets. Read some DIYs for these units below the pictures and do some crafts!
