Winter storage? Bike repair space? Cozy spot? Create an all-in-one!

Turn your winter storage into something useful! Organize your storage facility to hold your outdoor stuff, and still have space for an everyday retreat of calm.

Reserve a seat for yourself

Stacked chairs and other outdoor furniture are an opportunity just waiting for you. Even if most are arranged for efficient storage, use a few of them to set up a corner for that precious break and some time alone.

Use your mood lighting for longer

Prevent your lighting chains from ending up in frustrating tangles by not rolling them up at all. Let them hang, adding an atmosphere that keeps you coming back for more.

Room for both storage and decoration

Big shelving units swallow volumes of stuff. They may even have a bit of spare surface. Use it to hold winter-stored plants, and add LED candles to create a nice, cozy mood.

Functional, visual, musical

Keep your tools in check with a pegboard that you can tailor to your needs. Naturally, it doesn’t have to be all about work. Mix in a bit of entertainment, too.

“Cluttered storage rooms steal space – and your energy. It’s worthwhile to organize your stuff properly. You’ll have room for other activities, and the peace of mind to actually enjoy them.”

Geneviève Jorn, IKEA interior designer

Time (over) to plan the outdoor season

Hooks not only get your bike out of the way, they also make a beautiful display. Sit back and dream up where you’ll go together once it comes off its rack.

A shop for your chores of choice

Any open floorspace is ideal for the must-dos of wintertime. Easily moved furniture, like wheeled trolleys, makes it easy to both make room and move accessories between projects.

Mindful maintenance

Having everything in its designated place has a way of freeing up energy. Use it to work on the things you like caring for, stop for an occasional coffee – and winter will pass in no time.
