Ikea hacks: 5 original ways to transform your Kallax shelf


Do you have a Kallax shelf at home, and you don't really know how to show it off? End of bed, dresser, bench... Here are 5 original and clever ways to transform this great classic from the Swedish giant.

Among the flagship products of the Swedish brand Ikea, we obviously find the Billy bookcases, but also and above all the famous Kallax shelves which offer a perfect storage solution for all homes.

But how can you really take advantage of it, without making it a banal shelf that you don't notice?

Here are some ideas that should inspire you.

Turn your Kallax shelf into a bench

Why look for a sofa when you can turn your Kallax shelf into a bench?

To dress up an entrance or fill the underside of the stairs, this shelf could very well be used as a seat.

To do this, nothing could be simpler: just place it horizontally on the ground, place a wooden board on it to dress the white wood, and add a few cushions for comfort.

Converted into a dresser

Large window displays not your thing?

The Kallax shelf will be perfect as a dresser, especially for small kitchens.

Indeed, it offers a multitude of storage and you can place all your dishes there without any problem.

You can also add storage boxes or baskets for accessories that you don't want to display in plain sight.

As a bed end

Rather than investing in a bench, the Kallax shelf will be perfect as a bed end!

In addition to being able to sit on it, you can add attractive storage boxes in the "cabinets" to optimize the space in your room.

For a warmer look, it is possible to dress the shelf in faux sheepskin.

Storage unit

Can't find the perfect storage unit for your child's bedroom?

Why not just create your own with a Kallax shelving unit?

Just add six wooden legs (or other material according to your preferences), doors if you want to hide the contents of the boxes, or beautiful wicker baskets to store all your belongings.

In TV stand

Last way to transform your Kallax shelf at a lower cost: make it a TV cabinet.

For a piece of furniture totally to your liking, you can add wooden legs and top for a more designer look.

Then, you can manage the contents of your boxes as you wish, alternating storage boxes and visible decorative elements (vase, candle, etc.).
