Next month, IKEA will release its 2016 Australian catalogue; which means a swathe of new furniture hacks will soon be on the horizon. Here are a few products that caught our eye while thumbing through the Swedish conglomerate's latest tome.
IKEA Hackers is one of our favourite websites when it comes to clever DIY furniture tips. Unfortunately, the excess of user-generated content can make sorting the wheat from the chaff unduly difficult. It's just as well then that the website has launched an ebook that collects the cream of the crop. Best of all, it's free.
We're big fans of standing desks here at Lifehacker; both for their proven health benefits and boosts to productivity. Unfortunately, they can also be prohibitively expensive. If you're on a tight budget, here are a handful of IKEA desk hacks that will achieve the same result for a fraction of the price.
Collecting Star Wars figures is a serious business: in addition to keeping them in mint condition, you also need to keep track of all those tiny, easy-to-lose accessories. This DIY display case will ensure they remain perfectly preserved while doubling as a kitschy "ärt" collection: just like Han Solo encased in carbonite.
If you're anything like us, you probably store your kids' LEGO in a big tub that's stashed clumsily in a corner of the room. Each play session results in frenzied chaos, with countless pieces strewn across the floor. If you'd like to introduce some order to their bricklaying, this affordable DIY play desk will help to stifle their creation; Lord Business style. It can seat up to four people and comes with inbuilt brick storage and integrated building mats.
Projector mounts tend to come in two primary guises: stylish or affordable. This DIY IKEA mount manages to combine both types while being incredibly sturdy to boot. It also requires minimal alterations to your ceiling or wall which is handy if you're renting. Here's what you'll need to make one of your own.
IKEA is a cruel and fickle creator. After brutally killing off the Expedit shelf in February, the Swedish furniture mogul has decided to consign the Galant desk to the same fate. Production of the Galant has already ceased, with the desk expected to be completely phased out by October. Like the Expedit, the Galant is one of IKEA's most popular — and hackable — furniture items. To commemorate its passing, here are a few of our favourite Galant hacks -- get one while you still have the chance!
There's nothing quite like playing classic video games on their original systems. Unfortunately, this can cause serious space issues beneath your TV; especially if you're a hardcore collector. Here's a simple solution from IKEA Hackers that will allow you to proudly keep your consoles on display -- as it should be.
Last week, we reported on IKEA's bone-headed decision to send a cease-and-desist letter to IKEAhackers. The creators of the popular DIY site have been ordered to give up the 'IKEAhackers' name and cease all forms of advertising on their website. While the writing's not on the wall just yet (especially after a partial backdown by IKEA), we thought we'd take the opportunity to pay our respects. Here are the ten most popular IKEA hacks of all time on our website -- from $5 bike racks to makeshift chicken coops.
