Everything you need to Do It Yourself


From a Billy bookcase to an entire kitchen, IKEAFANS can help you do it yourself. 

Wondering, "Can I really DIY this whole project?" We think so! Basic skills, simple tools plus a plan (we'll help with that!), and Yes. You. Can.  IKEAFANS are nothing if not willing to share knowledge, tips, tricks, ideas, lessons learned and advice with others who are new to the IKEA experience. 

Quick note though - we're not just for DIYers. We're a diverse bunch of people with varying degrees of  skill, desire and time.  We're equally good at providing assistance and guidance in choosing and working with contractors if that's your path. We're easy.

Get it right the first time

Don't re-invent the wheel.  IKEAFANS members have experience with everything from managing the IKEA store experience to getting the boxes home and beyond. Benefit from the collective wisdom of the largest IKEA community in the world.
