IKEA Hack is when you edit (or hack) the original design of an IKEA product to customise it and make it your own. It uses all the main components from IKEA and allows you to get creative with the outcome. An IKEA Hack can be anything from painting your IKEA product a different colour, adding your own handles, or for our IKEA Hack kitchens it’s adding your own Australian made kitchen doors and drawer fronts supplied by So Watt! Check out the range of options we offer for your IKEA kitchen design here: https://sowatt.com.au/collections/ikea-hack
