We have a huge treat for you guys today! Our friends at Modernize are taking over the blog to share with you some super fun Ikea Hacks and Ideas to Transform Your Kids Room.
Loft Bed with Storage
Ikea furniture offers endless solutions for furnishing your home. But the neutral colors and sleek facades are meant to be improved by personal touches. Decals are the perfect way to add flair to a blank Malm dresser without having make a permanent change. If you choose to redecorate, you can remove them and try something new!
When we think of child-proofing our homes, we usually think of soft-closing drawers and cabinets, safety locks on the doors, and baby gates. What may not cross everyone’s mind are the sharp corners on the edges of tables and other furniture. Thankfully, you can use corner bumpers to make your kid’s bedroom and play area fun-friendly in every way.
In your child’s room, you want most things to be within reach, which means you end up with plenty of storage bins and toy boxes that take up space on the floor. To avoid clutter, opt for wall storage like hanging baskets and shelves. You can use wall pockets to store just about anything: art supplies in an art corner, books in a reading nook, and even a sippy cup or favorite stuffed toy next to the bed.
Space Saving Wall Lamps
Once again, the best way to solve seemingly unavoidable floor and surface clutter is to go vertical. Instead of taking up space on a dresser with a lamp, use hanging wall lamps. The cute designs will bring comfort while the hanging element allows them to be right next to the bed for optimum accessibility.
Creative Reading Corner
While you’re rethinking your kid’s room, don’t forget to question what certain pieces can be used for and to start improvising. For instance, you can turn spice racks into hanging storage for books. Encourage extra reading time by making the reading corner feel like a fort–throw in plenty of cute, comfy cushions and a pop-up tent.

i love this. this will definitely come in handy soon with the new big girl room and new nursery!!
Two suggestions that have transformed my kids’ rooms at some point:
1. IKEA Billy bookcases provide the look of built-ins without the cost. And they are only 11″ deep, so they don’t take too much floor space away from the room. And…
2. We liked the idea of a loft bed for our son, but unfortunately didn’t have high enough ceilings for one. We found a junior loft bed on walmart.com for approximately $200. It had about 48″ in clearance underneath… Not enough for a desk or dresser, but enough for a reading nook and some toy storage. At one point we had one of the memory foam mattresses (about 4″ thick) from IKEA under it, creating a “bottom bunk” for sleepovers.
All these ideas are great too, and you can never go wrong with IKEA storage solutions… So incredibly happy we finally have a store in Las Vegas, NV!!!
