10 Cool IKEA Kitchen Hacks

Having almost completed our kitchen this winter, I’ve been searching for inspiration for our upper shelves, an exhaust fan issue (long story), the list goes on. After many late night searches, I found some amazing IKEA kitchen hacks in the process.  From (above) a kitchen under the stairs to a mid-century-esque “string kitchen” (a Swedish popular shelf from the 1950’s); the ideas out there are endless and I’ve saved 10 favorites to show you.  Click below to see the others!
