Whether Pax, Billy or Lack – IKEA furniture has become an indispensable part of many German apartments. Especially in student apartments, the famous classics of the Swedish furniture store are often to be found. No wonder: The furniture is not only practical and inexpensive and offers neat storage space, but on top of that also chic!
With a bit of creativity, IKEA furniture and accessories can do a lot more. For example, the storage boxes from the PLUGGIS series can be used in a variety of ways:
For every food there is a perfect place in the fridge. While the upper compartment should store mainly long-lasting foods, you should place dairy products in the middle compartment and meat and fish in the lower compartment. To make it a little easier for you, you can get hold of some storage boxes of different sizes and store the food in it and put it in the fridge.
Waste separation made easy: To avoid wasting time sorting in front of the container or the bin, just place several boxes in a kitchen cupboard and separate the garbage when it accumulates. Now you just need to empty the corresponding box as soon as it is full. How to save a lot of work!
3) odds and ends
Not only in your refrigerator can bring order with the practical boxes, the closet can also benefit. Let’s be honest: Behind most closet doors hides the pure chaos. However, if you always sort everything into the appropriate box, the problem is a thing of the past.
In particular, shared apartments should be happy about the following tip: Label a few narrow storage boxes with the names of the roommates and mount them on the wall. So all letters can be assigned the same right!
Instead of putting your make-up utensils all over your bathroom, you can also put lipstick, eyeliners and brushes in small IKEA boxes that can be wonderfully attached to the wall.
Also in the laundry room, you can attach various boxes to the wall and store all cleaners neat and tidy. For the practical boxes, there is simply a use in every room!
At IKEA there are even boxes that are big enough for a notebook or tablet. Really practical!
In most bathrooms, shampoo and shower gel bottles are scattered throughout the room. In order to change that, the bathroom is equipped with storage boxes in different sizes – already there is order.
Garments that you do not wear so often do not necessarily have to hang on a stirrup in the closet. To save space, you can also fold them up and store them in one or more boxes in a different location.
Even the annoying cable salad you can with a storage box to master. To do this, drill a series of holes in the bottom of the box and insert the cables from the other side.
Really fascinating, how versatile you can set up the apartment with such simple storage boxes! Maybe you can even use one or the other tip well – something you can always clean up, right? Have fun!
