IKEA hacks are a personal favorite of mine. I can't seem to buy anything from that store without thinking about how great it would be if I just modified it a little bit. Here are six space saving ideas for your next IKEA hack.
- STUVA storage closet and shelf built into a wall
Those odd, left-over spaces, like under the stairs or the space in a top story room that is too low to stand under, are often left unused. If you have a wasted space like this, you could fill it with STUVA drawers and shelves. From Ikea Hackers.
- KVARTAL bike rack hack
This $10 IKEA hack requires only two KVARTAL wall fittings and a small piece of wall space. Your bike will be hung upright and off the floor. From Apartment Therapy.
- STOLMAN bike rack for two
This two bike rack requires several parts, including one stolmen post, two brackets and four hooks. From Ikea Hackers.
- Hide-away craft pod
You'll need two BILLY book cases, a few hinges and casters to make this work. It is a great way to fold away craft projects and reduce visual clutter when you're not working on something. From Ikea Hackers.
- PS locker turned litter box
Modify a PS locker for a tidy way to keep kitty's litter box out of sight and off the floor. From Ikea Hackers.
