The highly anticipated 2018 IKEA Catalogue is now available, and I’m especially impressed with their many organizing products and tips, so I have picked out some of my favorites.
Go vertical and use the entire wall for storage. ALGOT Laundry combination ($58).
A closed balcony is a great spot for bulk food. Stackable wire baskets help you organize and store produce, allowing air circulation for freshness. OBSERVATÖR Clip-on basket($4/ea).
An array of suction-cup containers allows you to get your most-used utensils up and away – and gain valuable counter space. STUGVIK Toothbrush holder with suction cup ($4.99/ea).
Some fruits taste better and ripen faster if they’re stored at room temperature out in the open. But use baskets to keep bananas, avocados and tomatoes separated, so they don’t ripen too fast. RISATORP Wire basket ($12.99/ea).
Getting creative with every surface can make a small apartment feel more spacious. Wall-mounted BESTÅ cabinets conceal personal objects, while making room underneath for seating when it’s not in use. BESTÅ Storage combination ($285 blackbrown finish). New VIMLE Ottoman with storage ($160/ea).
The top drawer is the best spot for the things you use every day, and thanks to clear boxes, it’s no longer the messiest. Instead of rifling through all of your things to locate just one, you can now find it in a flash. GODMORGON Boxes with lids ($14.99/set of 5 Plastic).
Handmade baskets keep hairstyling tools close, so all you have to do to get rid of that early morning bird’s nest is reach for your brush. NORDRANA Baskets ($9.99/set of 2).
Keep everything in one place with this coat rack and shoe storage bench. PINNIG ($89.00).
Behind closed doors, mesh baskets protect items that can’t be hung up, while giving you a clear view of them all. Try organizing by season or color for an even tidier wardrobe. KOMPLEMENT Mesh basket ($11). Pull-out rails for baskets ($5/2pk).
Hang the floor pillow on the wall when you don’t use it. DIHULT Floor pillow ($79.99)
Collapsible wall hooks create even more storage in awkward corners for the things you need to hang. They’re a great solution for the lighter things. BJÄRNUM Folding hooks ($9.99/3pk).
This handsome divider creates storage space out of thin air. Hang pots and pans that you need close by on the wire mesh, and use the textile slings to store placemats and napkins. VEBERÖD Room divider ($129.00).
By putting two bamboo corner shelves together, you can create a high-quality storage space under your sink – and keep all of your daily bathroom essentials close by. RÅGRUND Sink shelf/corner shelf ($39.99/ea).
Use the doors for a bit extra storage. GARNES Over-the-door mirror with shelf and hooks ($29.99)
