If you need to maximize storage space in your home but lack the floor area, consider using your home's vertical space. A great way to do this is by taking advantage of empty wall areas by utilizing a hanging wall organizer. However, the thing with hanging wall organizers is that most feature fabric pouches that may not align with your room's aesthetic or may make the space appear cluttered. Looking for a storage solution that's both stylish and practical? Why not try a creative DIY project? Consider turning an IKEA LURÖY slatted bed base, which is $40 for a standard double at the time of writing, into a wall storage organizer. It's a minimalist and highly customizable option that helps you organize your space efficiently and adds a chic touch to your decor. This way, you get the best of both worlds in a functional storage solution that looks great in any part of your home.

The beauty of using the IKEA LURÖY slatted bed base for your DIY project is its versatility, allowing you to customize it to fit your specific needs and style preferences. The bed base features curved slats connected by a polyester ribbon, providing a unique canvas for customization. Moreover, the LURÖY bed base is available in a range of widths at IKEA (80, 90, 120, and 150 centimeters), ensuring that you can find the perfect size to fit the space you have in mind.

How to DIY your wall storage using IKEA LURÖY

Purchase the slatted bed base from IKEA or repurpose an old one if you bought a similar bed frame from the store in the past. Then, decide on the length you want and use scissors to cut the ribbon. You have the freedom to paint the wood veneer in any color of your choosing so that it will go with the room you're putting it in and what you're putting on the organizer. Depending on where you're hanging your organizer, get together your wall mounts — in most cases, you'll need two. In her YouTube video, Jenny Lynn used L-brackets bent at 45 degrees using a vice. Hang your bed slat on the wall and start placing items to hang on the slats — this could be your heels, a basket full of stationery items, your favorite mini potted plants, and even your family portrait. You can also use S-hooks (available on Amazon for $5.99) to hang items.

You can place your new wall mount on your garden wall to make a vertical garden, in your bathroom to hold a range of essentials, in your kitchen to hang small buckets holding assortments of utensils and cooking tools, or in your entryway for your keys, bags, cloaks, and jackets.
