Ikea is known for its understated, yet chic aesthetic—one with versatility at its core. And while a great deal of the brand’s products can function within a variety of styles and spaces, we love it for its accessibility with small spaces in mind. Read on to discover the pieces your tiny studio apartment shouldn’t be without.
Skadis Pegboard Combination, $16.99
No room for a nightstand? This versatile pegboard can be kept close to your bed and store all your items without taking up any floor space.
Discover some storage space behind your bed with a chic headboard that can store anything from magazines and books to small clothing items (like socks) and accessories.
With three varied points of functionality, this wall-mounted hook and mirror set is a no-brainer.
For the tiny studio that’s lacking space for both a bed and a sofa, the key is finding a piece that can function as both. Enter this storage-friendly daybed, which manages to do all of the aforementioned while remaining effortlessly chic and small space approved.
Eket Cabinet, $15
It hardly gets better than a stackable bookshelf that can also double as a nightstand. This cubby-inspired piece travels to new heights, maximizing the use of the ample air space in lieu of the more valuable floor space.
Gjora Bed Frame, $359
Canopy bed or room divider? You decide. We’re handing over major points for the clever use of the bed frame as a method to separate one portion of the room from the rest.
Ivar Cabinet, $70
The Ivar is an Ikea staple, and a small space essential on top. Its ability to be mounted on a wall allows for clean space underneath, while the versatile shelving allows it to function as both a dresser, media storage, and shelf. Studio dwellers, take note.
Ditch the often clunky headboard in favor of a sleek wall shelf, set well above the bed, and deck the piece with an assortment of photographs or art.
Fladis Basket, $12.99
Chic storage solutions are a must for the small bedroom, especially one that comes sans closet. We’ve got our eye on these woven baskets, perfect for housing everything from laundry (it’s time to let go of that mesh hamper) to shoes and accessories.
Ledare LED Bulb, $11.99
Swap out that clunky table lamp in favor of a more streamlined light source for the bedside. A simple bulb hanging above will do.
Trones Shoe/Storage Cabinet, $39.99
The Trones series may be earmarked for shoe storage but we’re all for repurposing the piece with a little bedroom organizing in mind.
The beauty of this streamlined piece lies within its wireless charging capabilities and built-in USB. Now, that’s functional.
