IKEA Snudda Lazy Susan Hacks


The IKEA Snudda Lazy Susan is the perfect inexpensive piece of kitchen and dining equipment. But you can use it for so much more than just a lazy susan!  See these 11 great DIY hacks using the Snudda


One of the things I do when walking around IKEA is to glance at every item and see if it can be hacked!  

Recently on one of my IKEA shopping trawls, I came across the Snudda Lazy Susan.  IKEA’s Snudda lazy susan is a light wood lazy susan turntable that is quite beautiful in its simplicity.

In case you don’t know what a lazy susan is, it is a turntable that is used for easy access to items. Lazy susans are great for corner cabinets for instance where you cannot reach everything at the back. Instead of trying to reach an item you just turn it and revolve it.

A lazy susan also makes a great serving piece – because it can be turned easily it is accessible to everyone wherever they are sitting. This makes it perfect for serving snacks and treats.

To me lazy susans are just so retro!  They are so mid century in design and use.  The IKEA Snudda is such a great versatile inexpensive piece. 

It looks lovely in its simplicity already as a lazy susan – with the basic Scandi style light wood. But it can also be turned into so much more with clever DIY hacks.

Check out these 11 great hacks and uses for the IKEA Snudda lazy susan!



Snudda Lazy Susan Cheeseboard

A cheeseboard is one of those items that you want to make easy to access. Especially if you are placing it out at a party, you want your guests to not have to lean over and walk around to get to the cheese that they want to cut a piece of.

A lazy susan is absolutely ideal for a cheeseboard. You can turn it around, reach all the cheeses on the board, and also it is large enough to keep your crackers or bread on there too.
