So, the truly great thing about this simple piece of Ikea storage is how flexible it is. You buy the pegboard and can then add on loads of accessories to customise it to meet your needs. When it comes to kitchen storage, you can use the Skadis to keep all your most-used bits within easy reach – use a Skadis container for herbs and spices, a Skadis pot for your utensils and a Skadis letter holder for your well-loved cookbooks. Plus because it's all wall-mounted, it won't take up any extra room, perfect if you are working with a small kitchen

Another great one for small rooms, whether hallways or bedrooms. So often the backs of doors go ignored but they can add a load of invaluable storage space, so put them to use! Skadis pegboards come in loads of different sizes so you won't struggle to find one to fit your doors. We love this idea of using it for extra bedroom storage – again, the accessories make this really easy. Just get some hooks for shoes, containers for accessories, and a roll holder is handy for belts.
