If you’re looking for new ways to upgrade your kitchen on the cheap, taking on a kitchen island DIY is the way to go. Hiring someone to create an island for you can be very costly but if you take a little time to make a project out of it, you can create something that looks just as good. To sweeten the deal, you’ll have more storage for your kitchen necessities and you’ll have more reason to entertain some guests. If you’re ready to get inspired, here are some of my favorite DIY kitchen island hacks that use IKEA products.
Natural & Minimalist
If you want to get a kitchen island with as little effort required on your end as possible, try just purchasing this table and adding at most a coat of paint to it.
Cute & Green
A little pop of color never hurt anyone. If you love the farmhouse style, this is an option you shouldn’t overlook. : )
Metallic & Marble
Now this is quite the kitchen! If you thought you couldn’t make an upscale kitchen with IKEA products, maybe it’s time to reconsider.
Rustic Metal Top
While this may be a bar, it is a great example of a kitchen hack still. All you would need to do is pick a shorter IKEA table and apply the same principles of design used on the bar.
Wood & Metal
Here is another set up and go idea if you don’t want to do anything extra after putting the table together.
Light & Cute
If you like a simple and cute look, this is a piece that will match easily with many types of furniture.
I love the wheels on this one as it makes it easy for you to turn it into a food bar, coffee bar, or kitchen island in just a few seconds!
Cart & Barrel
Want a really nice statement piece? This barrel idea is so unique, everyone will ask you about it.
Simple Marble Top
If all you need is just a little more space for storage or you have a tiny kitchen, try this out.
White & Wood
This island is definitely an entertainer’s dream!
Want something multi-purpose? You can use this hack as an eating area when you don’t have guests or an island for entertaining and food preparation.
The possibilities when it comes to IKEA furniture is endless! All these ideas are super creative and have so much range! Whether you are looking for a farmhouse style or a modern upscale look, there is something here for you to get inspired by! Which IKEA kitchen island hack is your favorite?
