So yesterday I talked a little bit about my recent trip to Ikea and shared some ideas for garage storage. Today’s pictures are of some other finds at Ikea that I thought would be fun to highlight today. Come take a tour with me!
First of all you know I’m a huge fan of cubbies. Love the whole Expedit line and the brown baskets that go inside. This one below is actually two four cubes put together ($39.99 each). I love that they’ve hung them on the wall…I never would have thought of that.
Here’s an Expedit bookcase for $79.99 that takes advantage of vertical space but I’m sure it could go either way…I love anything with versatility! Terrific that you can now get door and drawer inserts for them as well.
And look at these other Expedit shelf inserts to further help maximize your cubby space. What a great idea for shoes! So awesome!!
Then in the next section of Ikea I stumbled across these cubbies hanging on the wall…I’d love these in my kid’s rooms. Sorry can’t remember the cost on them though.
Now if I had a choice between shelves or cubbies, I think I’d always go for the cubbies as I just like the way the space is divided up and provides boundaries. However I do like how the baskets are all lined up on the bottom of this bookcase to provide some variety. That would be a great tuck away spot for kid’s toys in a living room for example.
Not bad for $99.00 a bookcase. The media tower is $49.99:
If you need to create an office space in tight quarters, I think this super narrow desk would be helpful for that. Plenty of room for two work stations even. Maybe you don’t have a home office but would like one. Many of you have told me that your dining room table acts as more of an office than a place to eat. This desk is so narrow maybe you could tuck it up alongside one of your dining room walls to use as office/paper storage/laptop center. Just pull your dining room chairs over when needed. Just an idea…these are the things that go through my head as I’m walking through the store. Now I’m walking through again and taking you along with me 🙂 It’s called the Besta Burs Desk and it’s $299.99 (here in Canada anyway).
Or just even a floating shelf at the right height would work too for a whole lot less. This shelf is only $19.99! It is narrow but you might be just able to fit a laptop on it. I would LOVE it for a hair station too! Seriously if you spent as long as I do on your hair you’d need to sit down too…hahaha.
So let’s see what else. Ah yes, the Trofast line. So much functionality to it, what’s not to love!
Need to make yourself a Command Center? Maybe these magnetic boards for $14.99 would help, they’re huge!
I’ve had a number of questions about storing scarves. I was super excited to find a very clever solution for only $9.99.
Drawer organizers for $8.99:
And finally I just thought this curtain rod turned art center was a brilliant idea!
So thanks for taking this virtual Ikea tour with me…wish we could have all gone to the store together. Think of all the fun we’d have!!
Did you see anything in the pictures above that you think would work for your house?
