IKEA Storage Units: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

If you’re looking for home storage options, IKEA storage units are the way to go. Each shelf, each box, is the perfect blend of Swedish practicality and American affordability. Plus the solid color palette matches any room.

Thomas Pychon had this to say about IKEA. “Look at this. A barstool, named Sven? Some old Swedish custom, the winter kicks in, weather gets harsh, after a while you find yourself relating to the furniture in ways you didn’t expect?”

I got these Winter blues this week, so I took a trip to IKEA to check out the options. There are a wide variety of IKEA storage units to choose from. If, like Mr. Pychon and myself, the winter weather has you drawn to furniture, this guide to IKEA storage units should satisfy your craving.

There are two types of IKEA storage units to consider: shelving and boxes. As you’d expect, many of the boxes fit well with the shelves. I’ve ranked each shelf and box based on looks, sturdiness, and space. Then, you can go to the store or online and pick out the storage that works best for you.

IKEA Storage Units: Shelving

The Kallax

Let’s start with a classic IKEA storage shelf: the Kallax. The Kallax is a cube shaped storage unit that comes in a 2×2, 4×4 or even 5×5. It can also come in 2×4, 1×4 and a few other variations. You can find them in a blackish brown color or in all white.

The Kallax is one of the more functional IKEA storage units. It’s a pretty solid design, though like most IKEA furniture, the wood exterior could chip. The design is simple and doesn’t stand out. When you get up close, it’s surprising how much actually fits inside each cube. The cubes are wide and tall but also deep.

Another handy feature is the tubs and totes IKEA makes to fit perfectly inside. I’ll review those later. This shelf is perfect for the organization expert. If you’re a Neighbor host, this is a great option for organizing multiple renters at once without compromising on looks.

How does the Kallax stack up?

  • Looks: 3.5/5
  • Sturdiness: 4.5/5
  • Space: 5/5

3×3 Price: $79.99

The Billy

The next IKEA storage unit is the Billy  bookcase with glass (who knew Billy is a Swedish name?). This was the best looking bookshelf in the store. The Billy comes in several different options without glass. Still, the glass made this bookcase a little more elegant. It also made it look less like a bookcase, meaning you can get away with storing more than books inside.

One of the best parts of the glass bookcase is the color options. While the normal bookcases either come in black or white, the glass option came in beige, dark blue, or dark red. The muted colors fit with a lot of different room styles.

Glass is a great option as it masks the contents of the shelf a little. Sometimes glass means you have to be more neat, but on the Billy, it has the opposite effect. It also keeps out the dust. The Billy bookcases is stable, sitting flat on the ground instead of using little legs like the Hemnes bookcases.

How does the Billy Bookcase with glass rank?

  • Looks: 5/5
  • Sturdiness: 4/5
  • Space: 3.5/5

Price: $169.00

The Galant

The next IKEA storage unit isn’t as easy on the eyes. Still, what it lacks in looks it makes up in space and security. I’m talking about the Galant cabinet with sliding doors. You won’t find the Galant in the home storage at IKEA. It’s in the office furniture.

The Galant is around four feet tall, five feet wide, and nearly 18 inches deep. Instead of wood like the home furniture, it’s made of plastic and light metal. The Galant also has a 10 year warranty on it.

One of the best features of the Galant is its lock. For Neighbor hosts, this can help your renters have extra security and privacy when they store with you. The Galant also comes in different models with extra storage shelves on top. It’s great for an office, basement, or even a garage.

How does the Galant check in?

  • Looks: 2.5/5
  • Sturdiness: 4.5/5
  • Space: 5/5

Price: $699.00

IKEA Storage Units: Boxes

That’s it for the shelves. Now let’s talk about boxes, baskets, and tubs. I’ll start with those that fit easily into the Kallax cubes.

The Drona

A popular IKEA storage unit box is the Drona. You’ve probably seen these around. They’re a square box with a fabric exterior. The top has an extra fold of fabric giving it the impression of a lid. If you slide your fingers under the fabric, you can pull or lift the box.

Drona box in different colorsA big plus of the Drona is the variety of colors and patterns. This is especially fun if you’re storing the Drona boxes in the Kallax shelf. The boxes fill them the entire cube and look like a solid block of color.

One downside to the Drona is the fabric gets dirty easy. Some were even dirty from being in the store. You may not want to store anything too heavy in the bin, otherwise you’ll have to carry it from the bottom. If you don’t mind this, the price is incredible so you could replace them regularly.

How does the Drona score?

  • Looks: 4.5/5
  • Sturdiness: 3/5
  • Space 4.5/5

Price: $3.99-4.99

The Bullig

The other IKEA storage unit box that fits will in the Kallax is the Bullig. The Bullig is a nice looking bamboo box with a smooth exterior and felt bottom. It’s the same size as the Droga, so you can count on it to hold a lot and fill up your Kallax shelf.

The Bullig is sturdy and held together by several screws. It can hold more weight then the Droga and has handhold cutouts for easier lifting. When I lifted the Bullig, I found the handholds to be a little uncomfortable. They may cut into your hands if you’re lifting a lot of weight or carrying it very far.

How did I rate the Bullig?

  • Looks: 4/5
  • Sturdiness: 4.5/5
  • Space: 4.5/5

Price: $16.99

The Byholma

Now that we’ve covered the Kallax-ready storage boxes, let’s get into some other IKEA storage units. One basket that fits well on the Billy bookcase is the Byholma woven basket. The Byholma is dark grey with a little tan mixed in. IKEA says that it’s handwoven.

The Byholma is wider than it is tall or deep. It’s great for holding smaller items. The box looks more crafty and cute than some of the bigger boxes on this list. It’s also much more versatile and goes well on shelves, in bedrooms, or on an end table.

How does the Byholma check in?

  • Looks: 4.5/5
  • Sturdiness: 3/5
  • Space: 3.5/5

Price: $9.99

The Knagglig

The final “living room” box you’ll find at IKEA is the Knagglig. This box more rugged than the others – it’s made entirely of slats and might have as many outdoor uses as indoor uses. Unlike the other boxes, this one requires a little DIY to build.

You can use the Knagglig as a garden box, a bottle holder, and tool box. When used inside, it’s great for giving your room a woodsy, rustic look. It could hold pillows, blankets, or games, to name a few. One bonus to an all wood box is that you can paint or decorate it however you like.

How does the Knagglig rank?

  • Looks: 4/5
  • Sturdiness: 4/5
  • Space: 4/5

Price: $9.99

The Sockerbit

These last two tubs aren’t something you’d want in your living room, but they are great for storing seasonal items, hand me downs, or craft supplies. The first is the Sockerbit. Besides having the best name of all the IKEA storage units, the Sockerbit actually looks kinda cute.

Horizontal lines break up the white space every few inches, and the bottom corner has a place to write the name of the items inside. This can help you keep track of others renters goods if they’re using your space via Neighbor. The lid clamps onto the longer edge of the box. It’s secure enough, but not as tight as a tub with latching clamps.

How does the Sockerbit come in?

  • Looks: 4/5
  • Sturdiness: 3.5/5
  • Space: 4.5/5

Price: $9.99

The Samla

The final IKEA storage unit boxes were made for stacking. These are the Samla boxes. They come in different sizes and depths, but all are great for storing items like the Sockerbit. The lid functions the same as well, locking in on the long edge.

Sometimes clear boxes can be a pain because they can scuff or become dirty easily. Lucky for us, the Samla isn’t 100% transparent. The boxes are all a little foggy, letting you see enough of the contents without trying to keep the box perfectly clean. Plus, the price is hard to beat.


How do the Samla’s stack up?

  • Looks: 3.5/5
  • Sturdiness: 3.5/5
  • Space: 5/5

Price: $1.50-14.99

If you’re looking for affordable storage, be sure to check out IKEA. You’ll find the right balance between functionality and can make your home more practical and organized.

If you want to try renting some space on Neighbor, consider buying some shelves and tubs to start. You can house your friends goods and make passive income one the side.

Functional & Stylish Inserts for the IKEA Kallax

In my mind, there is no better organizational system than the IKEA Kallax Line. The reasonable price tag paired with their super sleek design, modular options, and generous cubby size make them ideal for storing a wide variety of things. Although the cubbies themselves are an organization dream, there are now so many different bins, baskets, shelves and inserts for the IKEA Kallax, meaning you can make the shelves even more functional and stylish than ever before! Today, I’m rounding up my very favorite products that fit into the IKEA Kallax cubes (as well as other common cube systems such as the Threshold cubes from Target and the Better Homes & Garden series from Walmart). Let me show you!

Inserts For the IKEA Kallax

Years ago, I started investing in IKEA Kallax units because they have great storage space and incredible versatility. Not only does this shelving unit make the perfect addition to a living room wall or bench in the entryway, but it can also serve as a sideboard, room divider, or added closet/wardrobe storage.

We currently have 5 different units; and no matter the size of our home or its layout, I can always find places for them. To date, we’ve used IKEA Kallax units to hold kids games and toys in the playroom; fabric, yarn, and sewing supplies in the craft room; hats, shoes, and sunscreen in the foyer; and as console tables and media stands throughout the house.

Additionally, I have outfitted the 13x13x15″ cubbies with all sorts of shelves, baskets, bins, and other great additions in order to make them hold as much as possible in really stylish, usable ways. Here are just some sample pictures of the same units across our last 4 homes!

What Size Inserts Fit the IKEA Kallax?

One of my favorite aspects of the IKEA Kallax is that the cubby size is really generous, measuring 13″ wide x 13″ tall x 15″ deep. Obviously, anything IKEA releases specifically for the Kallax will fit perfectly, but I also find many of IKEA’s other baskets, containers, caddies, and totes are also compatible.

NOTE: The IKEA Kallax is the “newly” updated version of the IKEA Expedit. Although the frame of the unit on the Kallax is a bit smaller and has a sleeker appearance, the internal cubby size is the same as the Expedit. As such, any Expedit product will also fit inside the Kallax.

Further, the cubbies in both Threshold line (from Target) and the Better Homes & Gardens line (from Walmart) have the same 13″ wide x 13″ tall dimensions. So those brand inserts will also fit (although they may not take advantage of the full 15″ depth which is unique to the IKEA shelves).

IKEA Kallax Insert Ideas

Not only do these generous cubby dimensions give you a lot of space to work with, but it means they are sizable enough to be divided up and made even more functional. Here are a bunch of ideas I love!

Drawers. If you have smaller items that would get lost on big shelves or inside large baskets, using nice deep drawers are a great way to divide up the large cubby while still keeping things nicely concealed.

Wine Bottle Insert. If you are using an IKEA Kallax shelf unit as a console table or sideboard, this is a great option for bottles of wine. I also have it on good authority that each 1/9 square cubby perfectly fits four boxes/rolls of Cricut vinyl. 😉

Shelves. I was ecstatic when I discovered IKEA finally released shelves for the IKEA Kallax. Although I wish they weren’t glass, they are super affordable and a great solution for splitting up cubbies for shorter baskets. The wooden shelf below (although designed for the Better Homes & Gardens cube system) will fit nicely on the Kallax and divide it up without having to drill into your unit.

Paper Organization. There are lots of great options for paper storage inserts for the IKEA Kallax. Do your research though. While these products sure make organizing your rainbow of heavy weight cardstock a total dream, they can also be quite pricey. Etsy sellers seems to have the best selections for this particular IKEA Kallax hack.

Doors for the IKEA Kallax

You guys know I don’t love the look of visual clutter on shelves. Although I tend to prefer bins and baskets for catching all the unsightly stuff and use up every available inch, an added door is another really stylish option. And beyond just hiding the items on your shelves, these doors can become decor statements in and of themselves, allowing you to camouflage the particleboard finish and make the entire display look more custom or expensive! Etsy, again, has lots of neat custom (but still affordable) products!

Doors. IKEA makes a variety of door inserts especially for the Kallax, so you can be sure they’ll fit and can be customized any way you want.

Door Overlays. My Overlays is a company that specializes in wooden overlays that take your IKEA products to the next level. These door fronts can be painted or decorated to match your own style and color scheme.

Door Decals. Once you install plain white doors onto your IKEA Kallax cubbies, it might be too much white. One trick to consider is adding a (removable) splash of color with a wide variety of decals in fun florals, geometrics and more!

Bins & Baskets that Fit the IKEA Kallax

Alright, you guys know I love a good basket in general. But when it comes to the IKEA Kallax Collection, I believe they really are the best way to make the most of every last inch. Not only can good-sized bins hold a wide variety of items, but now you can find them in so many stylish colors, textures and patterns! The IKEA Drona Bins are one of my all-time favorites (because they are so cheap!), as are the large round Y-weave baskets, and these blue mesh baskets. Half-tall baskets (like the Medium Y-Weave Baskets and the shorter Sprout Crate) work great in Kallax cubbies split up by shelves. Here are a ton of other lovely ones!

Other Insert Ideas for the IKEA Kallax

Items that perfectly measure 13″ in height and width aren’t the only things that can fit on IKEA Kallax Shelves. Keep your eye out for products that fit within the 13x13x15″ dimensions and allow you to use your shelves in really unique ways. I personally use the acrylic dividers to hold all my cardstock on my Kallax shelves. And I’ve actually been looking for a way to store files in the cubbies; this fabric file box might be just the ticket!

I had so much fun hunting around and finding various high quality inserts for the IKEA Kallax. I hope this roundup gives you some ideas for outfitting your shelves in different ways, and I’ll do my best to keep this post updated as new products become available!

Kallax boxes wood

I have to say I complicated things a bit here since I used 3 different materials.

I wanted to have the look and feel of wood in the front panels so I used plywood.

For the sides I used hardboard (high-density fiberboard - HDF ) since it is stronger for the same thickness than plywood.

For the bottom I used a thicker pressed wood board since it is cheap.

I choose to go for not so thick materials since they are cheaper and lighter, and since this is not something that I plan to use long time or to give it hard treatment it will do fine.

The box I will be making will have a final assembled size:

33 x 38 x 33 cm (Width x Depth x Height)

The same as a DRÖNA box.

For the imperial system Ikea website says this box is 13 x 15 x 13''

For the panels I just went to my local hardware store and told them the list of panels I wanted in each material and respective dimensions, that saves me a lot of work.

For one box you will need:


The sizes are not the same as the final assembled box because you have to adjust to the thickness of the materials used dont forget to do the same if you use different thickness materials.

1 x Bottom pannel 37,4 x 32.4 cm

Since the side and front panels are 3mm thick I had to make it 6mm shorter compared to the final size

I used 10mm thick pressed wood to give stability, since its not visible I don't care if it doesn't look nice.

2 x Front and back panels 33 x 33 cm

Used 3mm plywood to give it the look and feel of wood once finished

2 x Side panels 37.4 cm x 33 cm

Again 6 mm short compared to final size of assembled box due to the front and back being 3mm thick

Used 3mm hardboard since its stronger that plywood for the thickness.

The boxes will be assembled using only wood glue. So to reinforced it a bit more glued triangular wood profiles in the interior corners.

This should be strong enough given the loads inside.

To reinforce the front panel where the handle will go I used rectangular wood profiles cut to the dimension of the front panel, 33cm.
