Kitchen and Dinner room DIY’s
IKEA revolutionized the household goods industry with simple, stylish and easy-to-transport appliances. It was easy for them to become a worldwide distributor of cheap furniture. The biggest disruption was to expect people to actually build their own equipment.
Giving customers parts and instructions seemed counter-intuitive, but it worked very well. The one thing that they did not expect was that people started to create their own instructions and share them on the internet. Using different parts of IKEA products in ways that were unexpected to create awesome projects!
