Creating storage for every room with just IKEA Besta frames

Redefine the meaning of storage with the Besta frames from IKEA. Home storage should be exactly how you need it to be. We want to show you different ways to configure and style your Besta to fit your needs and aesthetic. Check out these varying ways to customize the Besta frames for storage in each room of your home.


Kitchen buffet

Let's start in the heart of the home - the kitchen! Whether you need storage for kitchen linen, silverware, or just empty Amazon boxes, you can make a buffet for functional dining storage with the 25" tall Besta double-frame. Adding a custom credenza unit will also make your kitchen or dining area more stylish.

By connecting multiple Besta frames, you can also create a longer sideboard to fulfil all your storage needs.

Entryway storage bench

The first part of your home sets the tone for the energy felt throughout the house. High traffic areas can sometimes be hard to maintain organized. It's usually a smaller space but should allow visible access to the whole house.

By using the 15" Besta frames from IKEA as a base and adding our Amelia doors and panels you can combine fabrics and functionality, enhancing the aesthetic of what home means. This customer chose our DIY finish, which is prepped and primed, and painted it in color matching the wall for a cohesive look.Amelia doors on a Besta from IKEAIKEA Besta frame (item: 602.458.44) with Amelia doors and panels featuring Elisabeth brass knobs, made into a seating bench with a cushion. 


Living room media center

One of the living room's biggest eyesores is media equipment, games, cables, and other functional necessities. Make a TV console with the 15" Besta TV frames, with a cut-out in the back for wires, and close the door on the mess with our cane doors. The cane weave is perfect for hiding TV and media equipment since it allows sound and signals to travel uninterrupted.

Bedroom nightstand

The bedroom should feel like an oasis - cozy and comfortable. There is no reason why a place of relaxation shouldn't also be stylish. Here is an example of a calming color palette and a matching nightstand made out of a single small Besta frame. You can dress the frame with our panels, or you could add one of our doors for a budget-friendly upgrade.

Work space filing cabinets

It's hard to find storage that's on brand for your business, or that is practical yet stylish for your home office. Designing custom furniture brings a whole new sense of control into your workspace. The Besta frames can create functional storage and act as filing cabinets or hide any other kind of clutter you don't want to hinder productivity in the office.
