We know it can be tricky to find the right place to store all the things we need, but don’t use every day. This is why at IKEA, there are boxes and storage solutions for all the things that take up space in our hearts and homes. For the heavy and dirty. The holidays and the different seasons. Your collections or bulky possessions. Someone else’s stuff. For just in case. For the things you want to remember or everything you want to forget. For clothes, tools, flower pots. And more.
Our storage solutions adapted to the rougher areas of the home can help you organise things in the not-so-organised pantry, garage, down in the cellar, or up in the attic.
Organise. Store. Repeat.
The first step in decluttering your home is to categorise everything so you can work out what to keep and where to keep it. It can be effective to bunch similar things together, such as clothing and footwear, books and documents, or hobbies and seasonal activities.
Next, all those things need somewhere to go. Seasonal stuff can be stored high up or out of the way, and things used daily get the most accessible and easy-to-use spots.
Choose the right storage
We have different types of storage boxes to protect your things from clutter, humidity, and dust. Some, like SAMLA, are made of transparent plastic, which makes them perfect for stuff you often look for, like gadgets or tools. Others, like KNAGGLIG, are wooden, sturdy and come with handles, so you can lift and move them from one place to another much easier.
Many boxes become stackable when you put lids on them, but for safety reasons, you shouldn’t stack them higher than 90 cm.
Don't like boxes? Grab a bag.
Our blue FRAKTA carrier bag is not the only bag that might be useful when shopping, doing laundry, or storing things at home. PÄRKLA storage cases are perfect for everything from seasonal decorations to clothes, shoes, and bedlinen. DIMPA bags with zippers are transparent and durable enough to hold car tires and sports gear. KNALLA bags are suitable for recycling, and GÖRSNYGG can come in handy when transporting anything from laundry to groceries.
Find home for your hobbies
When you know you need all those small objects and tools for your hobby, but you don’t need the clutter, try organising them into small storage boxes and other stationery organisers that fit neatly into storage furniture. A mix of materials and textures lets you create your own endlessly refreshable look.
Enjoy the spring clean!
It may be a chore that evokes mixed feelings, but also a liberating ritual to enter the new season aired and prepared. Have you noticed how much easier it is to begin cleaning your home when your cleaning accessories are well organised? We have a wide range of cleaning supplies as well as storage solutions to keep them all in place after your spring cleaning is done.
