IKEA is one of the most affordable places to find furniture and storage solutions for your home. One of my favorite things from there is the KALLAX cube storage unit.
Have you seen a more versatile IKEA item than the KALLAX (formerly known as EXPEDIT) cube storage unit? It can cost as little as $60 and comes in so many different shapes and sizes that it really is an essential in every single home.
It is cheap, sturdy, versatile and long lasting but it can look pretty plain and boring. That is why you should try one (or more) of these IKEA KALLAX hacks to lift up your storage game. Most of these hacks are really easy to do and will only take an hour or a few to make, but some of these need the use of some power tools and a handy husband.
