Fresh home furnishing ideas and affordable furniture - IKEA

Small tips to reboot how you manage mess at home

When asked, 39% of us admitted that having a messy home irritates us once a week or more. Put an end to clutter! Reorganise and refresh with these clever ideas.

Smart accessories streamline open storage

Create a calm corner by bringing order to the things you need to store there. Make existing furniture work smarter with useful storage additions, like drawer inserts and boxes.

Prepare meals for the week ahead

Whether you meal prep once a week or save leftovers for the next day – food storage is key to making life easier, saving time and minimising waste. Use lids (instead of cling film) to seal in freshness, and choose clear glass containers so you can easily see what’s inside – they can go from the freezer to the oven, too.

Boxes to organise from the inside out

Storage doesn’t have to be unsightly. Keep things close to hand with the stylish new RABBLA boxes – made of recycled polyester and renewable bamboo. Smaller accessories can be neatly organised in multi-section compartments, and then the stackable boxes can be neatly hidden away in a wardrobe or cabinet.

Refresh your work/life balance

Organising everyday essentials into feel-good displays with the addition of picture ledges can transform a cluttered desk into an inspiring workspace. And stylish pastel-coloured KUGGIS storage boxes mean it’s easy to store stationery, paperwork and other necessities – it’s all there when you’re ready to get back to work.

Give laundry a helping hand

Add a TORKIS basket and PRESSA hanging dryer to your laundry kit to make it easy to carry laundry from one spot to another, and keep track of smaller items like socks. Air drying uses less energy than tumble drying, so hang the PRESSA on your washing line or in a sunny spot, then save space by folding it away when it’s not needed.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
