Are small items getting lost in your IKEA drawers? The usual advice is to get a tray or dividers for drawers to organise smaller things into neat sections. However, not all IKEA drawers come with made-to-fit trays.
But fear not, IKEAhackers readers have tray and drawer divider suggestions for the more popular IKEA drawers.
So, let’s organise those drawers!
#1 Small items tray for ALEX drawers
A simple and affordable idea to store pens and other small stationery items inside the ALEX drawer unit.
SMÄCKER cutlery tray sits perfectly on the drawers, leaving some space underneath it for flat and thin items. Two trays can fit in one drawer, but the back slots in the deeper tray are hard to reach.
I came across this idea when I was working in the Workspaces department in IKEA, and customers were looking for small storage solutions.
The Kitchens department was next to mine, and SMÄCKER was right on the edge between two apartments, so a light bulb moment came fairly quickly!
I used to replenish our display ALEX products with the trays several times a day, as the customers were taking them fast!
It’s very convenient, practical and affordable! When I bought my ALEX, I bought two SMÄCKER trays for it, too.
The MAXIMERA kitchen drawers have lots of unused space at the top. The vertical space is great for stacking vertically but they weren’t right for me. So I decided to add one more level that slides on the bars using a 3-D printed tray holder. Read more.
