If you are someone that dislikes boring furniture then shopping from a well known retailer like Ikea might seem like the least place you would want to visit. But if you like unique things it must mean you are a do-it-yourselfer which means Ikea is the perfect place for you.

Why, because Ikea’s furniture is simple and simple is good. For someone who has a creative mindset simple is a great thing because you get to express your creative personality. It also means you are someone who likes to show off your style for everyone to see.

A  basic furniture like a table is a great opportunity to display your creative spirit.  There are different types of tables some options are a console, side table, office table, and even a dresser are wonderful pieces to experiment.

So how exactly can you personalize an ikea furniture, well you can be as simple as painting or using wallpaper on the table. But depending on the finish of your furniture using paint might be tricky, for example, if the furniture is untreated wood with no stain then painting would be easy.

If the exterior of the furniture has been stained with a high gloss finish or has a veneer exterior then using wallpaper and accessorizing is your best option. With wallpaper and accessories there are so many different styles, patterns, and colours to choose from.

The most important step when personalizing your furniture is to choose a style and a colour scheme, preferably something that works with your exciting style.  But if you’re looking to create a statement piece then opting for more eclectic accessories or a bold and contrasting colour pattern is the way to go.


Personalizing your furniture can be fun and its important to create a plan. This can be helpful in unexpected situations whereby your work gets interrupted. A plan will not only keep you on track but will also keep you organized.
