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. The important thing is 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 table is very practical, because the chest of drawers can be quickly converted again after the changing phase.
The easiest way is to use a matching changing unit, which you can find for many models in various online shops. If you are good with your hands, you can also build a changing mat yourself. Mount the new changing mat 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 changing and should depend on your height. A height of 85 to 105 cm is recommended. You should be able to bend over chest of drawers comfortably.

Can I paint an IKEA chest of drawers? 

That depends on the exact piece of furniture and the material of the IKEA chest of drawers. In principle, most wooden models can be painted, but you will first have to sand the surface well and, ideally, dismantle the piece of furniture. Sanding and painting is usually very time-consuming.
