August Blog Giveaway: Win a $500 IKEA Gift Card

I’m very excited to share 50 of my fave IKEA home storage ideas with you today. Because, let’s face it, we’re spending so much time inside now thanks to Covid19. What else is there to do but pull our fingers out and get things in order?

Be it the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or home office, there are a tonne of ways to make each space feel cleaner and clutter-free. Having moved into an apartment late last year, I was faced with smaller rooms that had less storage than my old townhouse did. And so I had to get smarter about how I lived. Small spaces don’t mean you have to sacrifice on storage. You just have to think outside the box sometimes.

You’d be surprised at how overwhelming so much unorganised chaos can be. It can honestly affect your mental health. I’m by no means a minimalist (I do love to hoard homewares after all), but I do like everything to have its own home. And so I hope today’s post inspires you to get the rooms at your place in order. You’ll feel a huge weight off your shoulders when you’re done, I promise you!

And here’s the best part: Scroll to the end of this post and you can enter to win a $500 IKEA voucher. That’s a whole lotta cash to put toward getting your bits and pieces stored and organised.

ikea bedroom storage and organisation ideas

IKEA Bedroom Storage Ideas

Be it under the bed or in your closet, there are so many unexpected nooks and crannies you can squeeze storage into. Above are 12 of my fave organisational godsends. The links to the products are below.

I love the subdued colour scheme in the mood board above (even the cat matches the vibe!). It’s such a calming combination of white, soft grey, beige and black. It’s actually a really good idea to turn down the colour when you’re trying to fit a lot of storage into a small space. It makes the entire scene feel less visually chaotic.

If you have a cosy boudoir on your hands, you’ll benefit from these small bedroom styling hacks.

The other thing I love about the IKEA home storage ideas above is that they’re so multi-purpose. I absolutely encourage you to think outside the box when you’re trying to store things. Those gorgeous felt baskets could be used in so many different rooms at home. And even the transparent shoe boxes don’t have to store shoes. Pop anything you like in there.

Something I really need to get a handle on at my place is unifying my coat hangers. I have so many different colours and materials. There are even a few (gasp) wire hangers in the mix! I love the look of all white hangers, so they’re at the top of my shopping list.

ikea bathroom storage and organisation ideas

IKEA Bathroom Storage Ideas

Next in my roundup of IKEA home storage ideas we’ll tackle the bathroom. I, like many of you, are living with a small bathroom that’s very tight on storage. Enter these decor gems. The links to all of the products you see above are listed out below.

The concept of utilising vertical space is a huge one when your bathroom is small. If you can squeeze in a trolley or caddy, by all means do so. But if you can’t even fit that in, you gotta get things off the floor. And so you really have to turn to solutions like hooks on walls, storage systems on the back of the door, and lightweight items you can easily move around (like that genius towel drying system above – so portable).

I also like the idea of bringing materials like bamboo into the bathroom. With all the tiles and ceramics in a room like this, the entire space can feel pretty cold pretty quickly. Adding in some warm timbers is a great way to create a sense of balance. Same goes for displaying soft towels and baskets. They’ll definitely make the bathroom feel less clinical.

ikea kitchen storage and organisation ideas

IKEA Kitchen Storage Ideas

I couldn’t do a roundup of the best IKEA home storage ideas without including some clever kitchen finds. It is the hub of the home, after all, but sadly it’s a hub that can turn cluttered and chaotic in the blink of an eye. These 12 storage ideas should help keep things calm. All the links for them are below.

My fave ideas above are the ones that really sort out the wasted space in drawers and cupboards. When I moved into my apartment last December, I was blown away by how poorly designed the kitchen cupboards were. The shelving couldn’t be adjusted and yet there was so much room you couldn’t utilise.

Corner cupboards are another design feature I know a lot of you battle with, so it’s nice to see some storage solutions for those as well. And bonus points to the little white waste bin that you can clip on the inside of your under-sink cupboard. I definitely need me one of those. Oh, and the pot lid organiser. I’m praising the decor gods for the invention of that bad boy.

ikea home office storage ideas

IKEA Home Office Storage Ideas

With so many of us working from home, I had to include some clever inspo for your office. And I fully appreciate that some of you might not have a whole office. Perhaps it’s a little nook. Nevertheless, the 12 ideas above should help get this part of your home in order. Links to see more of them are all below for you.

I’ve gotta admit I’ll always be a sucker for stationery and a beautifully decorated home office. I hate that the modern word is so techy and less tactile. Paper is gone. No need for pens. Forget scissors and sticky tape. Well, I’m still embracing it all and I’m so glad there are so many nifty ways to store and showcase these pieces.

I’m doing more home office content on the blog of late as I know Covid19 is making you hungry for a stylish workspace. Do let me know if you need some help in this area and I can point you toward a recent post

Bonus Tip: Look to pieces of furniture that do double duty. The Storage Table and Friheten Sofa Bed below are great examples of this. They serve an initial purpose, but also have hidden (or not so hidden) storage thrown in too. Such an added bonus for those of you who need it.

I own the Frihiten Sofa Bed and have reviewed it here for you if you’re considering purchasing it.

    Hi Team. I just decluttered my home in lockdown and realised my entryway is empty of storage or personality. I would use the $500 gift voucher to organise that area with the following purchases…1 x Nordmela chest of low line drawers, 1 x Rorkar hall runner, 5 x Skuggs wall hooks, 2 x Botkurka wall shelves and 4 x Pudda felt organiser tubs. This would allow a scandi/minimal look to my entryway as well as dedicated space for those bits an pieces we all have upon entering our homes.

    A crisp white ( 160 x 80) BEKANT Desk sit/stand, which looks simple to adjust from watching the short product video. My husband uses one at work and thinks I would benefit using one in the home office for productivity and creativity, as it would allow me to appreciate the outside view more.

    Hmmm where do I start? Isolation has caused some serious pantry organisation jealousy! I would love to buy some jars and the clip on basket featured in your article. Maximising pantry space is a must when its small.

    I love how durable IKEA products are, plus I know with European Standards I’m getting something safe. I love the bathroom storage and, with a bathroom renovation in the works, I know these products will make our space functional and stylish!

And not forgetting a Bissa and some Spanst for all her shoes!

    No-one ever said “I have too much storage” you can never have enough (ask any woman) and Ikea is the world leader in ideas, prices and quality. Ask anyone in the street what their favourite furniture store is and the answer will always be IKEA. There is so much I want to do to my home from the walk in robe to the outdoor enclosure.

    Kitchen/pantry storage/organisation 🙂

    Now we finally have the space to get organised and make it feel like our home, we’ve got a lot of big items we are saving up to buy (dining table.. new lounge.. tv cabinet) so this would be so helpful to get us going on the organisation front!

    Weddings can be expensive but not at IKEA. i would use the voucher to decorate my wedding and with these great ideas below all using ikea products and at amazing prices.

    – Several packs of the ‘Bumerang’ Hanger in white, they are only $10.00 for pack of 8, I would get personalised decals made up of my wedding party names and place them on the hangars and give them to my bridal party, they would look amazing holding our dresses and suits.
    – The ‘Fenomen’ unscented block Candles – set of 5 for $10.00 together with the ‘Fenomen’ 15cm block candle would be the ideal centre piece for each bridal table.
    – The “Borrby” lantern would be ideal decor for the guest book and wishing well table.
    -The smycka artificial flowers looks so real and the perfect touch to our wedding
    – The Sinnlig scented tealights scattered over the take table.
    – The Glattis coasters with holder are $4.99 for a 6 pack (brass colour). I would put a guest name on each coaster and place them at their allocated seat. Amazing find
    – Plenty of beautiful, affordable table runners to choose from to put on main bridal table, wishing well table and cake table
    – paper napkins with beautiful prints and colours
    -Sinnlig scented candle $4ea or the Korken Jar with lid. 3 pack for 3.99. fill them up with sugar almonds and give each gusts one. (Perfect Bonbonniere)
    Ikea has everything you need for the ultimate wedding decorations
