The holidays are over; Christmas and New Year’s passed, and our house was full of toys and gadgets everywhere, if you have children in the house. This always creates a storage problem, because there is nowhere to put so much new stuff, and furniture giant Ikea knows it. Now, it may be that your new reality of working from home also complicates things for you because there are computers, papers, pens and much more to accommodate in a little space.
To learn how to organize your house, there is an infallible trick: take a look at Ikea, which offers a lot of options, from furniture and drawers to trinkets to organize better closets and wardrobes. And many of them are, in addition, hackable adaptable according to your needs. Here we tell you about one of the best-selling options of Ikea.
Learn How to Organize Your Home With This Furniture From IKEA
With this Ikea furniture you can make the most of its use according to your needs, because it is as versatile as it is beautiful, following the lines of Nordic design. You can choose to use the TROFAST storage combination with boxes from Ikea between having it as a drawer or a slatted base, a bar, with doors or without doors (a great DIY project as well), adjusting the height of each compartment, etc.
Its six storage boxes (three large and three small) are perfect as office furniture, as an auxiliary to the cupboard, or as a piece of furniture to store all the children’s toys in the house. The drawers are available in five colors: dark gray, light gray, gray with blue, gray with green, and light red. The wood, on the other hand, always comes from the factory in a light color without dye, to give relevance to the beautiful shade of pine.
Flexibility comes at a price, however: for as low as $159.99, you will get the wooden frame and the six mesh baskets. This version has these measurements: 36 5/8 × 17 3/8 × 20 1/2″. There’s another version with plastic boxes, instead of the wired ones, for a lower price: just $129.99.
How Can You Adapt This Ikea’s Furniture?
Ikea also sells doors that can be adapted to different pieces of furniture from the same brand, so you can turn a simple open chest of drawers into a piece of furniture with doors perfect for hiding things from view that can create a feeling of clutter at home. If you are rather creative, you can buy a couple of pieces of wood and create the doors yourself: in the case of the TROFAST, it is much easier because you only have to look for boards made of undyed pine wood, and they will match immediately.
This piece of furniture can also be adapted to hang on the wall: with only about four brackets evenly distributed, it can be fastened and turned into a raised piece of furniture, to free up space on the floor.
Some tips that will help you stay clutter-free at home, to use the TROFAST at its most:
- Label boxes to keep items organized and easily accessible.
- Use clear boxes to see contents without opening.
- Mix and match different sizes of boxes to fit in the frame.
- Add casters for easy movement.
- Stack frames to create multiple levels of storage.
- Use the TROFAST as a toy box, bookcase, or storage for clothes and art supplies.
- Personalize with stickers or paint to match the room decor.
- Utilize the top surface as a play table or display area.
