Revolutionize Your Desktop Storage With This Simple IKEA BEKVAM Spice Rack Hack

Having to work in a cramped space is less than ideal. Folders, files, pens, and everything else that's essential in an office can build up and quickly make your desk area a cluttered space rather than an organized one. While we can't make your desk bigger, the good news is that there is a way to make the most of your small home office, and it involves the IKEA BEKVAM spice rack. 

Though it's intended to keep your salt, pepper, and paprika in one place, this handy yet stylish piece of equipment can be used for a lot more than storing spices. In fact, it will allow you to style your work-from-home space while giving you the extra storage you need. Plus, it costs only $6.99, making it both an easy and affordable way to transform your space. Here's all you need to know so you can transform your desk from clutter and chaos to a calm and tidy oasis.

Thus hack will save space while giving you extra storage

To get started, you'll need to put together the BEKVAM spice rack. This DIY is easy enough and should be achievable even if you don't consider yourself an assembly expert. Then, all you need to do is arrange the BEKVAM so the open side faces you (as demonstrated above). You should be left with a storage shelf that doesn't impede on the screen of your computer (though this will depend on the type of desktop you have). Depending on the height of your keyboard, you may also be able to slide yours underneath to save even more space.

As the BEKVAM measures just under 16 inches wide, it probably won't look great with larger monitors due to the large size gap. However, it's ideal for smaller desktops or if you don't mind a significant size difference. Due to the BEKVAM being created to hold spices, any heavier items may not be the best choice. Finally, if the color of the BEKVAM spice rack doesn't match your desktop setup, we recommend spray painting it for an easy DIY method — just ensure you do this away from any precious items in case of any splashes.
