Another popular closet system, the Algot system—also highly versatile!—is great if you need to create storage in a bathroom, laundry room, pantry, or hallway, and also works perfectly as an open wardrobe (or, again, to organize a closet.)

7 Eket Wall-Mounted Storage

$100.00

The Eket series encompasses much more than the multicolor wall-mounted cubby system seen here—you'll also find tons of different storage cabinet options, both wall-mounted and not.

8 Svalnäs Shelf

9 Komplement Pull-Out Tray

$140.00

The Ivar Series just celebrated its 50th anniversary at Ikea last year, so you know it's a good one.
