DIY Ikea Hacks: 7 Unique Ways To Organize Your Small Office


I. IKEA Bookshelf Spice Rack

It is important to keep all your work items in appropriate spaces, and with this hack, you’re assured of that. Attach IKEA spice racks as shelves on a pegboard with the different shelves for specific work items. That way you get both a flexible and organized space.

You also get to make use of a small space better with this hack. You can also hang a calendar on the pegboard and switch the racks for easier accessibility.

II. Turn IKEA Raskog Cart Into A Storage Shelf

With this hack, you get a movable storage shelf for your work items and supplies. This hack will be particularly helpful if you work with a lot of supplies and need to get them in one space.

You empty tins into storage containers and keep your work items organized, clearing space on your work desk.

Since you can also easily roll the cart away, you also get to save space. You can also assign the current levels to different materials. Notes, pens and even brushes can be well stored and easily accessed with this hack.

III. Painted Storage Boxes

IKEA has a lot of efficient organization pieces, one of which is the IKEA storage box. However, the boxes are a bit boring and could be a drag to your workspace if you are inspired by creativity.

Instead of looking for a space to hide the boxes and escape the negative vibe, you can paint them with different colors even adding shapes.

You could get painted boxes, but since they are a lot more expensive than the IKEA boxes, you can paint them and add color to your workspace. You should be careful with the painting though so that they turn out great.

IV. IKEA Painted Basket

This is another hack that both brightens your workspace and helps you organize work items better. These IKEA baskets come in nude color, and you can spice them up by painting them. You could also add other pieces, like the pom poms in the picture.

V. Faux Brass Drawer Fronts

This hack also involves adding spice to your workspace. Wrapping drawer fronts with a gold foil is a great way of adding spice to it. That way you get to alternate the bland color most drawers fronts come in.
