This IKEA BILLY hack created a chic home office


It’s no secret that we’ve spent a long time admiring ingenious IKEA hacks in our kitchens and living spaces over recent weeks. From quintessential country kitchen transformations to fashionable rattan makeovers – furnishings from our favorite Scandinavian giant after slowly taking over our entire interiors. 

However, we may have just found the one IKEA transformation that will elevate our home offices and improve our video call backdrop in the process. Needless to say, we’re taking notes on everything we need to know. 

Enter DIY extraordinaire Lisa Chun of @ourhome.becoming, who used IKEA’s iconic BILLY – or rather, four BILLY’s – to elevate an awkward corner in her home office in Bergen, New Jersey. ‘I wanted to customize my blank box of a home office, and I love the look of built-in bookcases, but not the price tag,’ Lisa shares.

The home decor enthusiast began with four of IKEA’s staple cabinets and arranged them, so they hugged the corner of the room. She then added a crown, baseboard, and face frame to connect the units. This trim makes the cabinets look ‘more substantial and high-end,’ Lisa adds.
