You decide: The IKEA Hack of 2015. Voting is on!

IKEA Hack of 2015Finally got this ticked off my to-do list. Yes, people, it’s my shortlist of the top 10 hacks of 2015. Looking at the list, it seems like 2015 was the year of small space hacks. Plenty of “hidden” furniture and dual-purpose hacks. Guess this is how the world is turning. As property prices continues to skyrocket (sorry, Mom, I still can’t afford a bigger place) the need to milk every square inch out of our living space increases. And lucky for us, we get to see all these amazing small space hacks.

These are my 10 favourites from over 600 hacks and ideas published last year. Let’s see if you like them too. And don’t forget to vote for the one you think should take the title of the IKEA Hack of 2015. Voting ends January 24, 2016, 11.30pm (EST time).

MALM chest with pull-out laptop table

MALM chest with pull out laptop table

You need a chest of drawers and a desk but you don’t have the space. What do you do? Sneak in a table between the drawers. Read more.

The other two-way mirror

Mirror and dining table in one

We don’t always have guests or need a big dining table but there are times we wished we had one. Well, look no further than this mirror that lowers down into a dining table. Read more.

Cooking up a SEKTION platform bed

SEKTION platform bed

IKEA launched the SEKTION (METOD) kitchen range last year to much fanfare. But I don’t think this was one of the uses they imagined for their kitchen cabinets. Read more.

Stowaway laundry dryer

Stowaway laundry rack

I have yet to see a sexy laundry rack. But this comes pretty close. Read more.

Oversized bed

Oversized bed

The kiddos having a sleepover? No problem. Read more.

BESTÅ hidden office and dining space

BESTA workstation and dining solution

Open it up for business. Close it for dinner. Looks like this space sharing arrangement is going to work. Read more.

The occasional coffee table

Hidden LACK table

Now you see it. Now you don’t. It fits perfectly into the bookcase, disguised as a panel, till you need its coffee-tabling powers. Read more.

George Nelson inspired bookcase

George Nelson inspired bookcase

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. When my BILLY grows up, I hope he’ll be like George. Read more.

Spider Cat, where are you going to?

Cat climbing wall

One of the most brilliant use of an IKEA rug that I’ve ever seen. Sure, it may be in shreds after a few months, but still genius. And the hours of fun watching the cats climb. Better than TV. Read more.

Foldable, sliding LACK doors

LACK folding sliding door

We don’t have space for a full sized door. So let’s put together a foldable, sliding door from LACK tables, complete with flap for the cat. Read more.
