The most frequently asked questions about chests of drawers from IKEA

Can you turn any chest of drawers into a changing unit?

This is indeed possible with many chests of drawers. It is important that the dimensions of the chest of drawers are suitable for use as a changing table. Do you have a chest of drawers with the right height and width? Then the idea of using it as a changing unit is very practical, as the chest of drawers can be quickly repurposed after the nappy-changing phase.
The easiest way to do this is to use a suitable changing table topper, which you can find for many models in various online shops. If you are a handyman, you can also build a changing table topper yourself. Mount the new changing table topper on the chest of drawers and complete the whole thing with a matching Changing mat. That's it!

How high should a changing unit be?

The right height of the changing unit is very important for back-friendly nappy changing and should be based on your height. A height of 85 to 105 cm is recommended. You should be able to bend comfortably over the chest of drawers

Can I paint an IKEA chest of drawers?
