1. Fridge Hack

Using the PLUGGIS storage containers, you can organise your fridge into neat sections. Ever opened the fridge only for something to fall and smash to the floor?

With these beautiful, yet simplistic containers, even the weirdest shaped items won’t try to break free!

2. Children’s Let’s Play Cooking Kitchen

This one is one of my favourite ikea hacks for kids. This little hacks involves simply painting a footstool black, drawing a stove on the top step, and adding some colourful knobs to get the burners going! You can use chalkboard paint for the stove drawing.

3. Phone Charging Station

Simply mount this bar and hanging basket near a changing point and place your gadgets in the basket. No more cluttered surface tops and desks.

4. Makeup Mobile Vanity Station

Need to organise your makeup? Hate leaving it on desks, or spilling out of makeup bags? This clever little hack will have you organised in no time. This hack uses the IKEA Raksog Cart and Godmorgon Clear Plastic Dividers.

You can use each layer to break down your makeup routine, putting skincare and your prep routine on the top section, your foundation and concealers on the second tray and palettes, glosses and shadows on the bottom tray.

5. Coffee Station

Love your coffee? This handy little coffee station is great if you prefer easy access to your cups, creamers and coffee.
