Ever wondered how to add legs to ikea couches? …or pretty much any couches or any furniture? Ever since I bought these Ikea sofas, I wanted to add legs to them to raise them up higher.
My Ikea Couches
I have had the Ikea KIVIK for a couple of years now. These Ikea couches are seriously wonderful. They’re comfortable, modern looking and have washable covers. You can’t beat that. Unfortunately, there are not ikea legs to add to them. I searched for some ikea legs to help me raise the height of the Ikea KIVIK to no avail.
In our last house, the low height didn’t bother me but for whatever reason, they felt so bottom heavy and too low for this space. Today I’ll show you a super easy way to add legs to your ikea couches!
I loved the set up we had in the space but it really felt heavy and the couches felt so bulky. I found these legs on Amazon and after inspecting the bottom of the Ikea couches, I found that it’d be super easy to raise them up and make them look a bit lighter in this space.
How to add legs to ikea couches
First, I removed the Ikea legs that came with the sofa.
Next, we install these industrial strength furniture brackets and screwed them over the existing hole, lining up the hole where the bolt of the leg screws in.
After they were all screwed in, I let my kiddos twist on the legs and I gave them an extra twist or two just to be safe! 😉
Here’s how it sat on the floor before…
and here it is with the first sofa done. I love the added 5″ height! It made it absolutely perfect. The back cushions sit right beneath the window, just like I wanted!
I absolutely love how it changed the sofas and if you’re debating on adding or changing the legs on your furniture, DO IT! There are so many cute options out there! Make sure to tag us on Instagram (@classyclutter) and use #myclassyclutter so we can see your projects and possibly feature you!!
