I have a mild(ish) IKEA obsession. I could spend hours in there, maybe days. I honestly don’t know what I did before they finally built one near me. They have the BEST selection of clever storage ideas that all have a chic, modern look to them, and you CANNOT beat their prices!
And, of course, I’m an IKEA Family Member, which saves me money on select items each month, PLUS I get a free coffee or tea at the in-store restaurant, extra time for the kiddos in Småland, and a 90 day price protection guarantee. And best of all… it’s FREE to join!
I look forward to the annual IKEA catalog every August, so last week when the new Catalog arrived, I was obviously stoked!
Here are a few of my favorite new items this year:
(After you browse through some of my favorite items, be sure to scroll down to check out some fun IKEA organizational hacks!)
1. FLISAT Dollhouse/Wall Shelf ($29.99)
You could easily customize this beautiful dollhouse by painting it (Batcave or Barbie house, whatever your kiddo’s heart desires!). Or – use it as a cute, decorative shelf!
2. FLISAT Children’s Table and Stools ($55.99 + $14.99/stool)
I’m most excited about this one, because it would be SO EASY to turn into a Lego table, right?? And you would still be able to flip those pieces over and use it as a desk. Brilliant!
Check this out: Turn it into a light table with this smart hack!
3. SUNNERSTA Series (Starting at 59¢)
This budget-friendly line is perfect for organizing any space! This would work for utensils in the kitchen, toothbrushes in the bathroom, or for holding all your craft supplies. At this price, you could even use it in the garage and not worry too much about it getting beat up.
Personalize it and add a splash of color with a little washi tape! Unfortunately, I’m not the only that was excited about this product- when I was at IKEA last week they were already out of the rails. 😔
4. FLISAT Knob Rack ($4.99)
This colorful FLISAT Knob Rack is perfect for kids’ rooms! At less than $5, I couldn’t help but buy a few of these for hanging aprons in the art room, too! Love them!
5. SLÄKTING Series ($5.99-$9.99)
I’m loving the fun, neutral colors of this new storage system. The SLÄKTING Series is another great, budget-friendly way to organize your kiddos’ closets.
IKEA Organizational Hack Ideas:
1. BEKVÄM Spice rack
Hands down, this is my favorite product from IKEA. You can use these shelves a million different ways, and they’re only $4! I buy a few every time I’m there. I have 3 in my kitchen for cookbooks and a bunch in my office/craft room, as well as my garage. I love that Nail Polish Storage idea, too! It might be time to put some up in my bathroom.
2. RÅSKOG Utility cart
My kids’ school has one of these utility carts in every classroom. They’re so versatile! Art supplies, books, anything that needs shared between rooms!
These carts serve SO many purposes! You can see more great ideas here.
3. GRUNDTAL containers
These neat little stainless steel containers have strong magnets on the back, so they’ll stick to your refrigerator, RÅSKOG cart (above), or use them virtually anywhere by mounting a GRUNDTAL magnetic knife rack (as mentioned below).
4. GRUNDTAL Magnetic Knife Rack
5. MOPPE Mini Chest of Drawers
6. SULTAN LADE Slatted Bed Base
This is one of those brilliant hacks that I would NEVER think of, but it’s SO smart! If you’ve ever purchased a children’s bed at IKEA before, you’ve probably picked up these cool wooden slats, held together with 2 ribbons of cloth, typically used as the mattress support.
Well, you’ll never think of them the same way after seeing this Brilliant SULTAN LADE Hack, right?? This would be so fun to paint and hang in kids’ rooms for hanging toys and such. IKEA doesn’t currently sell this item online, but you can check online to see if your local store has it in-stock.
7. LACK Game Table Hack
Such a FUN idea!
LACK tables are probably one of the most popular IKEA products. It’s one of the first things I ever purchased there because they are SO budget-friendly (under $10!), and come in a variety of colors. I will definitely be trying this adorable LACK Game Table Hack.
IKEA has a few more clever ideas for ways to paint LACK tables for game boards.
8. ALGOT Upright Wall-Mounted Shelving
This desk is actually just ALGOT Upright Wall-Mounted Shelving. Totally adjustable, so you can rearrange anytime to fit your needs. LOVE this idea! (Psstt… That awesome paper roll and those small storage buckets are also from IKEA!)
9. MOSSLANDA Picture Ledge
MOSSLANDA Picture Ledges are SUPER versatile! I love this idea for storing books in a small space, because kids can easily see the covers. So smart!
