How to choose legs for your IKEA furniture

If you are hesitating between this or that type of legs, here are a few quick tips to make your mind up:

  • Ask yourself what do you dislike about the original ones. Is it the color, the material they are made of, their height? These questions will help you narrow down your options and choose more easily.
  • What style are you aiming for? If you are looking to add some chic to your IKEA furniture, opt for metal legs such as this one or this one. If you are going for a more minimalist/Scandinavian look, light wooden legs would probably be a better fit.
  • Observe the already existing hardware you might have in the room, and take into account the color and style of the IKEA furniture you want to pimp. For example, if you are looking to update the legs of your kitchen table you might want to make sure that they go well with your kitchen cabinet’s handles.
  • Consider the heaviness of your furniture. Favor solid legs with more support for a heavier piece of furniture. You wouldn’t want it to make marks on your parquet or floor. The wider the tip of the leg, the better the weight is distributed.

A note on installing your customized legs on your IKEA furniture

If you are looking to add legs on cabinets such as the IVAR, make sure that once you’ve installed the legs, the cabinet is steady as you wouldn’t want it to fall down. It is always a good idea to screw furniture to the wall so that there is no risk of accidents.
