Matching accessories & foils for your IKEA furniture

We love IKEA and yet we want to customize our home. You think that doesn't go together? Yes, they do, and how! Welcome to the world of IKEA Hacks. 


Creative IKEA Hacks for kids

Especially in the children's room, stylish furnishing highlights can be conjured up from simple IKEA furniture. You can decorate according to your child's personal interests and create a dreamy children's room with simple means and clever IKEA hacks. Because in the reduced Scandinavian design IKEA furniture offers the perfect basis for unusual children's room ideas. And you don't have to limit yourself to children's furniture, because you can also transform the real classics from IKEA into special play furniture. You still have an old BILLY shelf in your study that you no longer need? With a creative IKEA hack, it makes for huge play fun in the kids' room.


Original IKEA Hacks made in a flash

Of course, there are many great examples of elaborate IKEA hacks that make the nursery something special. After all, you can accomplish quite a bit with colorful paints and varnishes as well as skillful drilling and hammering. But you don't have to spend a lot of time or be crafty at all to make your home more individual. We at Limmaland offer you very simple solutions with our high-quality adhesive films, which embellish your IKEA furniture according to your wishes. Whether you want to spice up your chest of drawers, the old wall shelf or the second-hand children's kitchen - at Limmaland you will find the right ideas.


Perfect fit Decal for your IKEA Hacks in the nursery

The side table becomes a LEGO world, the loft bed a Dino research center and the old shelf from the hallway gets a second life as a play kitchen in the children's room. When it comes to IKEA hacks, there are no limits to your imagination! And with the perfect-fit adhesive films for furniture and walls, your DIY projects are guaranteed to be a big success. Our numerous designs enchant every children's room with style and create completely new play worlds. There are little heroes, animal lovers and racers fully at their expense.


Environmentally friendly upcycling with IKEA hacks

The beauty of IKEA hacking is that you can create something completely new from used and perhaps even unloved pieces of furniture. After all, you don't always have to buy new furniture to give your child's room an exciting makeover. With a little creativity and our child-friendly stickers, you can conjure up real highlights from existing products. You can also look around for used IKEA furniture and products on classified ad portals or flea markets. You can remove any traces of use from the previous owner in no time at all with your IKEA hacks. This way you save money - and protect the environment.
