Or let’s be honest, you probably already own a ton of IKEA items but just don’t know how to make them look nice and cute.
You’ve come to the right place! Today I am sharing with you all my favorite IKEA bedroom hacks I’ve found from all over the internet to help you make your bedroom look stunning.
Let’s get started!
11 Genius IKEA Bedroom Hacks That Will Blow Your Mind
1.IKEA Malm Bed Into a Four-Poster
This blogger wanted a four-poster bed but didn’t want to spend all the money that would require.
So instead of buying a new one, they re-did their IKEA Malm bed by adding 4 posts to the bed, creating an elegant and sophisticated look.
They also added some drapes to soften up the look and have a canopy effect.
If you feel like your house is constantly disorganized and messy and goes back to chaos just hours after cleaning it, you need to try an online course called The Organised Home. It’s perfect for people who feel like:
- You always get anxious whenever you have guests coming over and need hours of notice to clean up your home because you feel embarrassed by the state of it.
- Always worried you misplaced an important document or item and won’t be able to find things when you need them.
- You feel like you can’t enjoy a peaceful time on your couch, enjoying time with your family and always find yourself stressing about the state of your home.

I’m sure you’ve come across wire basket tables before but this one looks extra chic with some ombre going on!

9.Moroccan Wedding Blanket DIY
Ahhh! I’m in love with this gold and frilled blanket!
These blankets used to be made by the brides family in Moroccan culture, in anticipation of the wedding.
You may think this blanket might set you back hundreds of dollars but in reality, you can create it for less than $20 using an IKEA Gurli blanket and some lace, trim and gold sequins.
10.Gold Upholstered Bench
If you need a fancy looking end bench for your bedroom why not use an IKEA Vittsjo TV unit like this blogger did?!
You could use whichever fabric you like to turn the tv unit to a bench. The best thing about this is you get some extra storage space on the shelves for small items like books, magazines or even shoes! Check out the full guide over at Dwellings by Devore.
11.Brass Pulls to Spruce Up A Bed
If you have one of those IKEA bed frames with a pull-out storage station underneath then this is a great hack to try to quickly and easily make the bed look more glam and much more functional.
It can get annoying always trying to wriggle those pull-out drawers out from underneath your bed so this hack makes it easy as pie!
I also like how the golden pulls add a beautiful touch to the otherwise boring white bed. Check out the tutorial at One-o!
