One of our favorite things about IKEA products is their versatility. Sure, the wall-mounted Trones storage box may be designed to hold shoes — but that doesn't mean you can't put it to work in other ways, as well. Here are some ideas for using the Trones to add a little extra storage in any room of the house.

In the entryway

The Trones shoe storage boxes are sold in groups of three (for $39.99), and you can combine them together, like tiles, to create any configuration that fits your space. They're only 7 inches deep, which makes them perfect for narrow spaces, and the fact that they can be mounted on the wall makes for lots of possibilities. A drawer in the front of the box opens up to store shoes, or whatever it is you want to stash away.

A grouping of Trones boxes provides a place to stash shoes and hats and gloves, without taking up too much space. This low grouping of three boxes (with a shelf on top) from Stadshem via Nordic Bliss functions like a really narrow console, leaving room for a gallery wall above.

This entry in a home from Dekorum has a WHOLE WALL of Trones. Room for lots and lots and lots of shoes. I like how the objets d'art at the top of the grouping help the boxes feel more at home.

Here, from Dos Family, Trones boxes stacked all the way to the ceiling provide storage in an entry on a narrow wall that would be too small for most traditional furniture.

Apartment Therapy contributor Sarah Coffey paired her Trones with an Eames Hang-It-All... and a Lack wall shelf mounted just above the Trones boxes, for a slightly different look (and more surface area!).

In the kitchen

Borrow inspiration from 2 Engler and use Trones boxes to sort recycling.

In a bedroom

Turn the Trones to the side and use it as a nightstand in a narrow space, as seen here in this small bedroom spotted on Decor8.

In a kid's room

A whole wall of Trones like the one here from Maren's place provides plenty of places to stash toys.

In the bathroom

Trones boxes fit into tight corners to provide a little extra storage. These little guys can go pretty much anywhere. Try them in the bathroom to store toiletries, extra TP, cleaning supplies and more.
