A few months ago I made a video about

at IKEA and I wanted to continue that and give you some However, when I got there I had to change plans, so let's get started.
affordable ikea storage solutions   part two
The moment I pulled into the driveway of Ikea, I realized my plan was going to need to change a little because, as you can see, there was a line. around the building and then zigzagged to the front like an amusement park ride at Disneyland, so this wasn't going to be the same ride I was expecting. The amazing thing was that as soon as I got in line, they were super friendly and handed me umbrellas. keep us in the shade and give us water once I got in I also realized that we wouldn't be able to go through things like usual, they have all the rooms blocked off like it was a museum so instead of actually interacting with the

like Normally you would just be looking at the presentation, so I wanted to show you what the rooms look like and talk about some of the things that I see from afar that I think are cool and some things that you could probably use.

More Interesting Facts About,

affordable ikea storage solutions part two...

Or have an idea, so IKEA usually occupies a small area and usually keeps their spaces under a thousand feet and some of them are as small as 325 square feet and they show you how to make a big impact with lots of storage space in this

part

icular one. The room used to be a craft room, they have changed it a bit, but this

part

icular unit is my favorite. The table part is on a hydraulic lift and closes these shelves, it lifts up and closes with latches to make it invisible. Whatever's on those shelves. it hides away but when you need table space it folds out and allows storage underneath as well and this is under $200.

I think it's a hundred and sixty nine dollars so I love this piece and because of the hydraulics you can use it if want. I am in a wheelchair, let me apologize in advance. My garage is where my office is and where I make my YouTube videos and unfortunately it's a hot day in Southern California so closing the garage door is not an option so I apologize in advance to everyone. of outside noise that you will hear, but basically what I am showing here is that IKEA has a lot of furniture solutions and the prices range from $200 to over a thousand, so it doesn't matter what your decorating style or size is.
affordable ikea storage solutions   part two
I had a piece of furniture that fit and as you can see there were very few people inside, they were doing a great job keeping us all six feet away from each other and only allowing a few people into the store at a time which That's why the line was long. They have a lot of different ideas for tables, they all come with different sizes, but these little tables start at just $10. I saw this industrial piece and thought it was a really cool item for a hundred and forty dollars. Tons of storage inside but it definitely has that cool industrial look but could also match the farmhouse style that is so popular right now but I really like the storage offered inside or you can still close it up with another article I found for one.
One hundred and thirty-nine dollars what I really liked was this hutch and I liked it because you could use it in an office or a craft room, but you could also get away with it in a kitchen. A new item I also found were these shelf hangers and As you can see, the bracket fits completely over a shelf so it doesn't inhibit anything but provides extra storage underneath for $12. One of the things IKEA is more about Known is the ability to customize desks and tables and I wanted to show off this wall while not. one was there so you could see how cheaply you can create a table and how many options there are.
Their smallest tabletop measures four feet by three feet and starts at nine dollars and then the legs come in a variety of finishes and widths and styles and start at just so you can create your own custom table for about $25 and then the sizes and finishes increase in both style and price from there, but the amazing thing is that you can mix and match all of these so you can have one side with just two legs and then you could start having a variety of storage options for the other side . Now these storage cabinets are also one of the coolest things because they could act as legs and again they have so many different options so some of these are around fifty dollars then you get more decorative pieces like this one which is more of a style. traditional, this one was wide, about $90, they have wider varieties if you have large plans or if you're working with fabrics, but you always have those.
Inexpensive options like these mesh baskets that could act as legs for just $15. This is one of the reasons I really love IKEA because you can come in and match almost any budget and still meet all of your organizing needs. to walk around were the bedrooms and again the fact that it was roped off made it feel like a museum but I loved what they did here with some curtains creating a canopy. I thought it was really pretty and I always wanted a chandelier so this one definitely caught my eye but if you ever get a chance to go in and see the way they take up space and create storage it's amazing so For this they created two wardrobes and flanked them above the bed to make it look like built-in beds and it is a very clever way to give you a lot of storage without taking up a lot of extra space.
Here's another one where they put the cabinet in the corner and then use the dead wall space to make it look like there's a built-in nook for the desk. It's a great farmhouse style. I love this little garland they made with lots of different plants, but I also like the storage bench at the end. I've talked about dressers for storage before and I really like doing them because they're usually very deep. I'm trying not to touch, so I'll use my foot here, but these will hold up a lot. If you put some shoe boxes in here, you can really break up the categories.
They are also great for storage. dishes to store pots and pans dishes if you have knitting items sewing items craft items if you are designing a space and need storage I would always consider a dresser, they are very versatile and don't need to be only used for clothing so if you are When designing a dining room or kitchen, the top can be used as an island, but in a craft room it is a fabulous way to get lots of storage space and still have something that looks very pretty and has a place. to display things or have more storage space on top the other thing IKEA has is lots of different handle options so they have basic pine dressers which is nice you can finish them however you want but then you can upgrade the handles and these.
I've seen them in high end stores, these leather handles are only $3 each now that we're crossing over into kitchen land. What I really love about walking through IKEA this way is getting so many different ideas and they really offer so much versatility. the lines that they carry, but also creative ways to use this so here's a little storage unit that they had and what I really love about this is that it's just a system that attaches to the wall and then there are brackets for the shelves on top they used. inexpensive metal holders to hold all the pots, pans and extra storage items, then they used pretty shelves for the bottom shelves where they would have supplies in the kitchen, but this could be done for crafts, they used a pegboard or bar to hold the things. used more frequently and then a deeper shelf to give them a work space area, then the lower areas were resumed as storage which was a very clever use of space.
This kitchen was one that I love. Can you see all that lighting inside that cabinet that is my? A dream craft area someday, but looking around their kitchens you'll never see any space fog. See the used floor boards on their walls? I love it, that means I'm not alone. This was the countertop I really wanted when I tried to use the floor. planks, it just didn't work now we get to the storage bins in the kitchen department, they have these plastic storage bins that are very similar to what you would get at the Container Store for a fraction of the price I have.
I've shown them before, but I think they're amazing, they're really sturdy, they're super stylish, they hold up a lot, I just can't say enough about these and they have them in a couple different colors, but also in the kitchen. In the center was this hanging sideboard, just the back, but for 50, excuse me for 60 dollars, I thought it was something really versatile that you could use again in a storage area in an office or if you're trying to get more space . of a kitchen, it basically comes with three different shelves and then the bar at the bottom can hold pots and pans, utensils or any craft items.
The next area we came to was meant to be her garden area, but I loved looking at the different containers because as they always come in different sizes, you can use them in so many different ways to store things and there are so many designs that you're almost sure to find them. You'll find something that fits your design style. I was very excited to see them. this color because this is the blue that I have in my office. I noticed this color is starting to come back while checking out IKEA and that makes me very, very happy.
These larger pots are great for organizing supplies that will be missing. so you could have papers and books here and then plant the smaller cans that you just saw inside these wooden planters. It would be great for that too, but you could also organize different crafts or items in the kitchen, you could even have them. the laundry room to organize all of your different supplies and these would be really nice to look at and still hide everything that's inside and allow you to have super easy access to them now as we move on to the little storage bins that you've seen.
These jars before because this size that you're looking at now are the ones that I have in my craft room, but now they've expanded their line and they have a couple new ones. These little mini jars are adorable and I like that. They have a seal like these are the jars I have in my craft room, they are not airtight but this one is new. I love these tall jars and this one will be on my wish list. I also noticed that it was just a rest cap. but they have these glass jars of various sizes that are excellent airtight in the kitchen, but also equally effective in the craft area as they blend in with kitchen supplies.
I've talked about these lazy susans before, but first $13 to get a 15 inch solid wood lazy susan. I think I look very good. I know many of you are out of ideas and I'm so sorry. I hope they ship more internationally, but I just wanted to give you a good overview of all the things they offer. carry out and its affordability, most of their plates cost around a dollar or two each, but you can get a full set for around $20 if I didn't realize they had so much fabric available. I guess I've never looked before. but they sell fabric by the yard that matches whatever style of fabric is in season every time, so you can buy them by the yard and coordinate them with existing pieces they've already made.
This is your pillows and blankets section, and again. These are more just for decor pieces around the house, not for the bedroom, but you can use them anywhere you want. I was trying to communicate. Are there many people coming to this place? And I was trying to say isolated, so I'm going to quickly explain the lighting to you, but the lighting you could probably spend two hours just on. They have task lighting. They have LED lighting. Lighting strip. Undercounter lighting. Pendant lighting. Wall brackets. Hanging lamps if there is a light source. whatever you can think of I promise IKEA has it and the prices will not be matched by anyone else I hope IKEA sees this because I would love for them to make a deal with me I am there very often unfortunately this is not sponsored or encouraged by them I am really a lover of your store and I think your products are unbeatable.
This is my favorite apartment. This is the home organization space. I love coming here, so I'm going to walk you through it a little bit section by section. We will start with the raw woods and what I like about theThe way they show things is that you can really get any type of material you want and, again, the prices are so

affordable

that you can really make almost anything you want. you want and if you find an item you like and it's a little taller, I promise they will have something similar in a similar material that ends up being less expensive, so we go from wood to wicker, wicker goes to heavy lined cardboard boxes of fabric and these are huge, they're eighteen by eighteen by eighteen boxes for three dollars, guys, I don't think that can be beat, they also have heavy duty plastic boxes and then we get into the desk supplies for storage.
They are wire and they have introduced this new industrial line that I really like, it is the heavier wire with wood mixed in and we also have raw wood that can basically be created into anything you want. I like these because you can cover them with paint. Leave them as is decoupage sticker the sky is the limit this cardboard paper is what I use in my own office this is the Tina line it's me and tje and my blue is back I'm very happy because here are boxes similar to the ones I mentioned before in the kitchen area they are like The Container Store but about 15 dollars less and look how big it is.
I don't think you have a full idea of ​​the size of these boxes and I can't touch anything otherwise I would show you, but they also come with lids included which is very nice. just a loose display so I'm going to continue with the Tina brand and again these are just cardboard boxes that have a very nice paper finish and as you can see there are so many designs that actually have a linen so they have a price a little higher but the rest have just a paper finish and they always come out with new designs, new patterns, new colors and when they sell them out they really kill them off so here is the standard white I'm talking about. very often they have some crazy patterns this year but they are so fun they always have black and white and there's my blue and I'm really excited that they're bringing back my blue so I highly recommend the Tina brand.
I've had mine for about five years and they've held up so well that it seems like they're now calling the blue the PAL, so I'm not sure why they're giving it a new name, probably because it has a light texture. but it's the same color as what I have in my office, so there are lots of storage options, from home organization, now we move on to wall storage and ways to display things. Pegboards are great and have a couple different options but what I really like is that you can customize them and just buy what you need, so if you just want to get a pegboard with a couple of shelves or a pair of hooks, you can really get it done for about fifteen dollars.
I also like that they have it so There are a lot of things on display that you can get ideas on how to use them, they have simple hooks, open bins, open shelves and something that I think would be really beneficial is that they have these little elastic cords, so yeah You have something with a strange shape and you want it. on a wall so you can grab it easily, you can just slide them into the bungee cords and of course these little closed containers come out so the holder stays on the wall and you just slide the container back into you.
I wish I could really move you and show you how these things work, but I'm trying to stay in Cove. Next up is closet organization and the ideas they have here are really fun because you can buy things that you can put on a wall or freestanding. and when I saw this particular freestanding unit, it's a little pricey, $170, but my first thought was that it was a craft room. Look at all those containers, you can put cardboard inside so things look clean and pretty and you can mix and match. your aesthetic, those rods would be great for hanging your mesh ribbon wreath decor fabric, oh my goodness I think this would be great in a storage room and when you consider those big craft boxes that fold out or around $1200, I think this would be awesome in a craft room and if you could spread them out a little more with a longer bar in the middle you could have a cabinet table in the kids area and this little spot was always my kids favorite spot at IKEA, it's closed now, but everyone This was the way we got into the kids department through this secret entrance, but if you go to Ikea, check out the kids spaces, they really are the best here because they find so many different ways to divide categories for kids, either because kids are going to have clothes, toys, school supplies and they really mess them up, so take your time and look at the kids areas, they also have things that are much more vibrant and fun for patterns, And isn't that what we sometimes want in a craft room is something that will make you feel good.
The storage bins they have again because they are fun and intended for larger items. They are an excellent affordable option. They are getting rid of the pink so right now at 250 a container what a bargain! There are so many small storage solutions in this area that don't compare to the rest. I really find the kids area to be the best place for what I use for craft storage. There are so many different sizes and varieties, and the amazing thing here is that many of these pieces fit together. inside others so you can place things inside. These three packs are really cute for little ones, but they also come clear so you won't be afraid of them looking too vibrant and too eclectic.
They almost always have a white color or one. Clear option available here to keep it bigger again. Lots of storage options and these larger containers, you can purchase the lids separately so if you want open containers you can get them for about $4 if you want to add a little to them. If you come, the price will be around $6, but even the wardrobes they have for kids come with shelves inside and bars, and you can always add shelves, so they are great Nitz for customizing your storage and it's a much more affordable price than what they have in the adult section, so don't skip the kids area if you go to Ikea and are trying to find storage solutions for yourself, whether it's your kitchen, garage, bedroom or your craft area, these units in particular they are my favorites they are super affordable.
I think the least expensive is $30 and then they go up in price. They also have different finishes, but I like these because the rails come with them, but you can adjust the size. You can have containers here or you could put shallow containers. I have this exact unit and used it as a ladder for my kids' bunk beds, but this unit is my favorite, especially since you can have all this storage underneath. It costs $40. You could put all these inexpensive containers. and then with a cushion on top, this would make a great bench with all this useful storage underneath.
Now we're going to get into the home decor, we'll start in the candle section and then we'll start looking at some of the others. fun decor, this is where you can get lost for hours because they have so many different things to see and so many different prices, so I'll back up a bit here and get back to the candles. I like to use candle holders. for plants and again for sorting tall things like brushes, scissors, utensils in the bathroom where you have beauty items, so look at those options because again, they are usually much more affordable than going to the bigger storage areas than ever They have enchanted me.
Lantern Ideas I think they are beautiful, they are very affordable and again depending on your budget you can get something that is really cute and small. They are about the same size as my hand for only $4. I love this industrial one then they go into a medium size here for ten bucks and then they go into a much larger one for $15 to give you perspective with the one that is the size of my hand I almost touched, I stopped, this was the four dollar one and as you can see the little one is about the size of my hand, look at the size difference with that big flashlight for only $15 tons of frames and artwork that you can take out, so if you don't have an Ikea nearby you can still go online and look at the amazing stuff they have, they still have rooms spread out online that you can search for different ideas, but if you have one and it's a few hours away, make the most of the day , sometime grab some food, walk around Archaea.
I promise you will enjoy watching. in all the amazing ideas you have different options the inspiration you can get just by looking at the things you have is so much fun now the rugs are a world in themselves you guys I tried to stay here and take a complete 360. view of carpet area. I'm amazed at how many options they have, from tiny doormats for $2 to entire room rugs for a couple hundred dollars. It always amazes me that I can always find something here that really fits my budget and if you've seen my videos before you'll know that I try to be pretty frugal now I saved my favorite room for last, the S section is now only allowing five in people at a time so I had a little look at just the entrance and this is where they usually have the largest furniture but when you walk in my two favorite places to go are the large table section these will be for the tables usually they are doors but I love to use them as table tops and they are usually under ten dollars and then they always have a secondary section where they have doors, two cabinets and I get them for as little as $1 sometimes here is a nice piece of driftwood and I'm going to turn it around. a second so you can see it without touching it, but once I got to the price tag I discovered that it was only two dollars and that it was about a four foot piece of wood.
When they take down their showrooms, they always have the rugs available. at least fifty percent off chairs, tables, anything they have used in any of their showrooms, this is where they come, also when they are clearing things out, they will make the remaining boxes available to you at a discounted price, these were locking file cabinets with storage drawers for $29 each again, if I had a customer right now that was looking for this type of thing, they would have been devouring all of this here's another large table for $25, for $14, normally it would have been $25, now $14.99, never Know what you'll find in the essentials section.
Sometimes I walk in wishing I had a ride, other times I don't find anything, but when you see items in boxes they usually show you what the finished item is and they'll show you why it's marked down, so this was a $400 storage unit and it went down at $99 because it has two small chips and the cardboard was torn so if you haven't been to Ikea the way it works is when you find an item you kind of get an item number so you can see the four zero two point seven five eight point four six when you are in the showroom it gives you the number and then it tells you the aisle and the container number so you can walk directly to the The items and things are arranged so easily that you can absolutely find them and then you always find yourself They will tell you if you have one, two or more boxes that you are supposed to carry and the cashiers are amazing at making sure. you have all the pieces with your order, you load them into a cart and then you stand in line and usually the line is not that long and then the amazing thing about IKEA is that they have wonderful snacks along the way. and my favorites are Swedish meatballs, so I behaved.
I didn't buy anything from Ikea today even though I have a few things I wanted, mostly. I'm so excited to have them back with my blue again and I loved it. Those tall jars, I can't wait to get them. The only thing I saw in one of the showrooms that I never found on the floor was a beautiful garland they had in that farmhouse bedroom. I didn't see that, but it was okay, because I was trying not to touch anything while I was out, this is one of my first raids since the liberation of Kovan and I really wanted to behave, so I didn't want to stand in line with all those people either, so I left. them with both hands, but I spent almost an hour and a half in that store, still wandering around, everyone kept a wide distance, the IKEA people who worked there were amazing at making sure people kept their distance, they didn't bother me unless that I would be looking at something for a long time and then they would just say: do you need help?
I wish a kid would sponsor me because I really love them. I think they are one of the best stores out there, but I really had a great time. Time since the rooms were closed, I couldn't really go in and show you how some of these pieces worked with the storage options that are in them, are the prices, but if you saw something that interested you, let me know in the comments below. I would love to come back andI'll be able to go deeper and show you anything you were curious about with these again. I know many of you don't have an Ikea nearby so driving is not an option, but I do ship for those of you watching me out of the country.
Sorry, I hope IKEA starts to become more international and you can have access to them, but let me know in the comments below what interests you or if you would like me to show something more in-depth with people who return. I'm going back to work very soon, which means that as much as I loved making videos every other day, I'm going to have to go back and go into my schedule of just a couple of weeks. I'm not going to say how many I can commit to yet because I'm going to try to make at least three, but I have to wait and see exactly what my workload will be, but I have really enjoyed having this extra time with you.
I feel like I got to know you more personally because I've been chatting with so many of you. I want to keep the pen pal program active.
