15 ingenious IKEA hacks for the DUKTIG play kitchen

For generations, play kitchen has been one of our favourite play worlds. No wonder, because our favourite little people want to imitate everything and stir the pots just like mum and dad. Find out here how you can make the IKEA DUKTIG even more exciting.

1. Colour for the IKEA DUKTIG

Colours make life more colourful - this also applies to children's kitchens! Kids aren't the only ones who love pretty colours. For many families, the play kitchen is not in the children's room, but in the living room or kitchen. And that's where the DUKTIG should fit in decoratively with the furnishings.
Tip: Instead of an elaborate paint & brush job, you can simply paint the DUKTIG laminate. An IKEA hack in just a few minutes with guaranteed success!

2. Backsplash attach

The IKEA play kitchen does not normally have a splashback. However, we think it looks even better with a backsplash - and is also more practical. Most families have the DUKTIG against the wall. And as the short ones often swirl wildly in the kitchen, the wall is protected and the pots don't fall through to the back.
Tip: Have a simple chipboard panel measuring 32 x 67.5 cm cut to size at the DIY store for 2-3 euros. You can attach this to the play kitchen with a few nails.

3. Small details for even more fun

Press buttons, switch on the microwave or even unpack the dishwasher? You can add even more fun with the IKEA play kitchen with small details. And because we like to make things as easy as possible, we prefer to use our clever accessory set!

My daughter has wanted a play kitchen for a very long time (a really long time). Now her dream has finally come true, and only because with you it also fits my eye ;-) I would never have bought the naked DUKTIG. Thanks to Limmaland. So easy and so chic.

When playing with the play kitchen, there are of course lots of accessories that need to be stowed away somewhere. The play fridge provides organisation and fun all in one. Naturally, it comes with an ultra-modern ice cube dispenser.

10. Let there be light!

As with the big ones, you can easily equip play kitchen and the fridge with light. You can get very simple lights that work with batteries from DIY stores or often even from one-euro shops. Self-adhesive stickers are usually included and you can stick the practical lights straight on.

11. Play kitchen and play shop in one

Sometimes it's worth looking at things from a different perspective. That's why we've simply turned DUKTIG on its head - and transformed back side into a bistro! We cook in the front and serve in the back. Pretty clever!

12. Checkout conveyor as a supplement to the bistro

Wherever food is served, cash must of course also be collected. With the adhesive foils for checkout conveyor, little cashiers will get their money's worth!
