The Expedit shelving system is one of IKEA’s most popular — and hackable — furniture items. We were therefore shocked to learn the Swedish retailer is discontinuing the Expedit range to make way for a new line of shelving. Here are our 11 favourite Expedit shelf hacks from over the years, ranging from Tetris game murals to luxurious hamster cages.
The IKEA Expedit series is a range of shelving units that can be stacked, mounted or used as room dividers. They’re also pretty affordable, which makes them ideal for all manner of DIY house projects. Below are some of the best Expedit IKEA hacks we’ve featured on the website over the years. If you’re an Expedit virgin, we advise picking a few units up while you still have the chance.
The Expedit will be officially discontinued in April this year. Hopefully, IKEA’s replacement shelving range, dubbed ‘Kallax’, will prove to be just as hackable as the Expedit. Fingers crossed!
