Let’s talk closets. Although they are meant to help “hide” the contents inside, that doesn’t mean that they can’t look and feel good. Most people settle for how their closets look but secretly wish there was a way to better utilize the space.
WITH THESE IDEAS FOR IKEA CLOSET HACKS, YOU’LL SEE THE MANY CREATIVE WAYS YOU CAN TURN YOUR CLOSET INTO MUCH MORE THAN A STORAGE SPACE.
I’ve dabbled quite a bit with the closets in my home. From designing a pretty and functional craft closet to turning one into a playroom, I’d say you can do pretty much anything with the right idea and supplies.
And when it comes to the supplies, there’s no doubt that Ikea has something to help. In all of the ideas below, you’ll see how different Ikea pieces come together to create a closet space to fit the exact needs of the user.
ARE IKEA CLOSET HACKS EXPENSIVE?
As with any makeover – no matter the size – there will be a little cost. I recommend setting up a budget beforehand so you don’t find yourself spending endlessly.
Do a bit of price checking of Ikea pieces and be sure to budget in any additional needs such as paint, stain, hardware, and the like.
You can also save a bit of money by purchasing smaller items from thrift stores, yard sales, and the like. Save the big purchases for those Ikea furniture pieces.
