Even if complicated home projects aren't your cup of tea, there are still plenty of ways you can upgrade your IKEA furniture. Here are seven companies that makes products specifically designed for customizing those familiar Swedish pieces.
Superfront offers cabinet fronts, handles, and legs for IKEA kitchens, wardrobes, and storage furniture, although only the legs and handles can be shipped to the US.
Panyl creates vinyl stick-ons designed to adhere to IKEA furniture (or any other furniture, for that matter). They make packs for particular pieces (like the EXPEDIT shown above) in patterns, woodgrains, and colors — or you can order Panyl by the foot and use it to create pretty much any design you can imagine (like this chevron cabinet, inspired by a CB2 piece). And it's removable if you decide to change things up later.
At Comfort Works you can buy slipcovers made specifically for a huge range of upholstered IKEA pieces — and they come in stylish fabrics like velvet and linen.
Behangfabriek's 123kea line includes decals for customizing your IKEA, including this floral sticker designed for a BESTA cabinet.
Bemz also makes slipcovers for IKEA furniture, in a huge array of fabrics.
The folks at semihandmade make doors for IKEA cabinets in 10 different styles, so your moderately priced kitchen can stand out from the pack. They also make doors for media cabinets and closets.
At Pretty Pegs, you can buy legs that fit IKEA desks, tables, and sofas, for a glam, modern look.
