If there’s a competition for one of the most versatile storage units in IKEA, the TRONES wall mounted shoe cabinet would definitely be in the Top 3.

Measuring only 20 1/2″ (52 cm) x 15 3/8″ (39 cm) with a depth of 7 1/8″ (18 cm), this little shoe box can literally fit in everywhere.
While it is designed to hold shoes, in reality, it’s a multi-tasker. And we’ll take a look at how the TRONES is put to good use all around the house.

#1 At the entrance
These can store shoes, obviously. Space out 2 of the boxes to create a drop zone for keys, lean a mirror, etc.

#2 In the bedroom
Surprisingly, the TRONES works brilliantly in the bedroom. Here it is as a simple storage headboard.
If your headboard serves a room divider of sorts, you can also make use of the TRONES boxes and take advantage of the space behind the bed. Like the hack below.
And not forgetting, it is just as functional as a lovely wall mounted nightstand. If space does not permit, use one TRONES box for a small nightstand.
#3 In the laundry room
Place it right next to your washer, below a wooden ledge for more surface area and to keep the look seamless.
#4 In the bathroom
Elizabeth used a single TRONES box above the toilet cistern to store paper rolls. See how nicely the rolls fit in there.
Stack them along your bathroom wall and you can store your towels, hairdryer and so much more.
#5 In the kids room
For toys and books, these versatile boxes do the job.

#6 In the living room
You can turn the TRONES into a slim, floating console. See how the Wall Whisperer did this.

#7 In the kitchen
The TRONES is highly useful in the kitchen. Seen here for kitchen wrap and bags storage.
And for sorting recyclables.

#8 In the balcony / patio
Add more storage to your patio with two or more TRONES boxes. Handy for hiding less than pretty gardening tools. You may even be able to convert it into a vertical garden.
