Doing up a nursery? These IKEA nursery hacks are genius

Oh, baby...

With non-essential retail open again, we're finally able to shop in our favourite Swedish furniture giant for the first time this year. The re-opening of IKEA is a relief to so many homeowners.

For those expecting, it offers a chance to transform a room into a nursery without breaking the bank. Picking up a few bits and bobs from IKEA also leaves room for a bit of DIY reinvention to really make the room work for you and your newborn.

We've compiled a list of five genius IKEA nursery hacks to make your little arrival's room a unique and functional space. Make the most of your purchases with these handy transformations.

Photo ledges as a mini-library

Front-facing book displays are both practical and decorative. Make the most of your wall spaces by turning the Mosslanda photo ledges into bookshelves like this interiors blogger did.

Trolley as a changing cart

The Råskog trolley is an IKEA fan favourite for storage in bathroom spaces. This gal loaded hers with every thing you need for a clean and well baba – nappies, wipes, bath care, rash cream, a thermometer and more. The white would look great in a nursery space if you feel like doing the same.

Spice racks as shelves and rail

How gorgeous and innovative is this display by @calivintage on Instagram using the Bekväm spice racks? Mounting one upside-down and using it as a clothes rail is such a genius idea.

Plain lamp as a cozy nightlight

This hack is a great one to get crafty with big brothers or sisters-to-be in preparation of the new arrival. Turn the glass Fado lamp into a cozy kitty friend like this blogger did.

Hanging planter as a nappy caddy

Usually reserved for displaying plants, the Bittergurka hanging planter is actually a clever tool for nappy storage, as shown by this fab how-to. The grab-n-go openness of it all would probably make life easier if you need to hold a baby down with one hand while trying not to touch anything with the (germ, if not poo, covered) other.
