Everybody loves IKEA hacks. For those who are still unaware, the IKEA hack means taking an IKEA product and converting it into something else with much higher value and better functionality. In this post, I would like to inspire you, my beautiful reader, with 5 amazing IKEA hacks in 2022 that are trending now like never before! Let’s see if this will be your next DIY or upcycling project and don’t hesitate to share your results!
Visually, this hack is just so stunning to look at and extremely functional. To create a nice and cosy seating area by the window, that could also serve as a storage space, you can use 2-4 Nordli dressers (with 2-drawers each). Style it with artificial fur and pillows and you will have an area in your home that will be used daily.
Add plants, books and a special place to have charges for your smartphones and notebooks to spice up the space even more. You can find step-by-step instructions in Hydrangea Treehouse.

IKEA Tarva is a simple dresser, that doesn’t have anything special about it. This DIY project makes it look like a luxurious piece of furniture with a massive upgrade. It reminds me of my DIY from the last year, where I found a chest of drawers on the street (in my case it was now IKEA furniture) and flipped it for profit using a cane as well.
What I like about this hack is how the full transformation of the drawers, including the handles that moved to other places.

This is a very simple hack but looks incredible. It only requires a small number of supplies and a little time.

Another hack that takes a simple IKEA product and turns it into something luxurious. The handles, the surface and the frontal board get a total makeover and it looks stunning.

The hack is about making an awesome wall-hanging unit for your kitchen. I did it once a few years ago, and let me tell you, it works like a charm. You can provide lightning, decor, books, spices, etc. It looks functional and saves some space in the kitchen.
Check the instructions and more photos in Ich Designer. This is so creative. Don’t limit the hack to the kitchen area only. You can use it in your home office, bathroom, or hallway. The sky is the limit.
