The most obvious idea for them is using Lack shelves for storage – they can be attached anywhere you want and in any looks and sizes but we won’t look at such simple solutions, let’s take a look at more interesting options you may go for. First of all, you may create interesting and eye-catchy shelving units attaching Lack shelves to each other. Second, you can repurpose the shelves compltely and turn them into a cool vanity, nightstand, desk and even a cat tree.
Many homeowners have a home bar, and you can make it stylish and chic using IKEA Lack shelves. Attach several Lack shelves to the wall, add lights or holders for glasses to the shelves. Go for decanters, shakers, glasses and other necessary stuff. Such a chic floating bar is a great idea for any space but especially for a small one as it literally takes no space at all! If you want, you may make the lower part a bar countertop and add some stools of your choice.
IKEA Lack shelves are ideal for making cat facilities: create a ladder or a cat tree of your choice for your kitties. It can be a ladder that helps them reach a windowsill or some furniture, it can be a ladder with a sleeping zone on top, a funny cat tree for jumping and so on. Spoil your pets with it!

IKEA Lack shelves are best of all for making shelving units and clusters. You may go for various looks, colors and configurations, for example, make a tree=shaped unit; Lack shelves are great for building them into walls, for using in awkward corners for storage. Build Lack shelves into interesting shapes to perfectly fit the space and its decor theme. You may even cut them into triangles to fit really small corners and use them for storage. Use them everywhere you want, from kitchens to bathrooms, and for anything, from potted plants to displaying art.
If you have a small bedroom and literally no space for a nightstand, grab IKEA Lack shelves and attach them to the wall to form a nightstand. Such a little floating piece will hold the most necessary things but won’t take any floor space, even if your bed is almost next to the wall, it’s ok. Cool!
