Universal design is great when it’s affordable, and there’s no one that does affordably universal than Ikea. The Swedish manufacturer is in pretty much every home in America, and their reach expands beyond furnishings and into kitchen design, tchotchkes and more.
One of their most universally known pieces is the “Expedit” and this bookcase and storage unit can be set up to fit any home, for any function in almost any configuration. Whether you’re organizing shoes, using it as a sideboard, hoarding collectibles or creating something entirely new out of it– Expedit is the answer to all of your storage dilemmas while keeping on budget.
Now, we’ve got 20 Expedit (and Expedit inspired) pieces below, though there are many more (and that’s not to mention tons of Ikea hacks) out there as well!
