IKEA and LEGO go so well together that it’s inevitable to use them together.
While we wait for the fruit of their collaboration, we round up a few of our best IKEA and LEGO storage ideas.
But first … a few words from the wise.
An expert LEGO organiser recommended a 3-step process, which makes a lot of sense if you want a super organised LEGO storage system.
1. Organisation – set up a list of rules to decide where each type of element goes
2. Storage – decide on the right sized containers / storage unit for your categories
3. Sorting – the process of putting each piece in its right place (which is probably the hardest bit to keep up with)
Taking these steps to organise and sort will make it much easier to find the pieces you need and build your LEGOs. Less time hunting and more time playing.
Now, once you’ve decided on the LEGO organisation best for you and your stash of bricks, it’s time to go shopping at IKEA.
