If you want to have a cool home bar but are not ready to buy one just yet, this round-up can be a source of inspiration for you. We’ve put together the coolest ideas for hacking IKEA items, building a home bar, or hacking existing IKEA bar carts. They can be used both indoors and outdoors.
IKEA bar cart
A bar cart has several advantages, and most importantly, it is mobile and can be moved anywhere – both indoors and outdoors, which makes it more functional. Second, a bar cart is a cool idea for a small space – it doesn’t take up a lot of space and it doesn’t look bulky. Take an IKEA Raskog, Bygel or Forhoja cart and turn it into a masterpiece with paint, stencils, new rollers, legs and contact paper. Create a large mobile bar with two or more IKEA carts or make your own cart by placing a desk or table on wheels.
IKEA bars and liquor cabinets
One of the easiest ideas to make a simple open home bar is to take an IKEA desk or table and renovate it to fit your space by adding suitable shelves and holders. You can even add roles. Another idea is to hack an IKEA cabinet or dresser like Ivar, Rast, Kallax, Valje or other pieces and here the possibilities are endless! You can make it half open and half closed, keep it closed, repaint, uncouple, stencil, cover with wallpaper and contact paper, embellish and do whatever else comes to mind. If you want something special and more creative, consider making a home bar out of IKEA Kangglig boxes or designing a Murphy bar out of an IKEA bathroom shelf and so on. Get smart!
