This is a great IKEA hack for a small bedroom with no built-in closet!
Create your own platform bed with the use of kitchen cabinets.

This is great when you prefer your storage space to be made out of layers of drawers instead of the kitchen cabinets suggested earlier.
3. IKEA Kallax nightstand hack
Let’s admit it – most nightstands are too small. The limited space usually could just accommodate a reading lamp and probably your gadgets or a book. Wouldn’t it be better if you had more space than that?
You can turn the IKEA Kallax (formerly known as the IKEA Expedit shelf) into a bedroom nightstand. Its height is low enough to be one and it gives you a lot of storage space. Now you can have more items just by your bedside!
4. IKEA Lack wardrobe hack
The IKEA Lack shelf can be used as a closet organizer. The cubby spaces it creates can handle your shirts, or keep seasonal clothes in order when they are not in use.

5. IKEA Brimnes bed bridge bookcase hack
A bed bridge bookcase is definitely an elegant storage solution for any bedroom! Instead of nightstands, you get bookcases on each side of the bed and on top of your bed as well.
