Products to Upgrade Your Office
Kallax could organize all your office supplies and books. No, it’s not the latest app, it’s a shelving unit from IKEA. If you’re familiar with their Expedit line, Kallax is the newer, sleeker, adaptation. There are several inserts from a modern looking plastic to a more natural weaved basket you can add to hold smaller items on the shelving unit.

Improvements also came to IKEA’s popular Billy Bookcases. The shelving will hold more weight. Which in my opinion was a big issue. No one wants bowed shelving under the weight of your favorite books. Another minor adjustment that makes a big difference is the addition of more peg holes. This allows you more flexibility with the shelving and spacing. Here’s a picture of the Billy bookcase in blue, for a wonderful pop of color in your office.

Not sure if it’ll fit? There is a great app that IKEA has created. It will project an image of the piece you are looking to fit to see if it’s the perfect piece. Download the app on your mobile phone or tablet, pull the Augmented Reality Mode from the app, place the catalog where you want the furniture to go, take a picture and the app places the piece of furniture within the picture. You see then see furniture in your space on your phone or tablet. Cool right?!

Time is precious. Don’t want the hassle of putting it all together? IKEA has installation services. Don’t want to shop and pack it all up in the car? IKEA has business services where they will pull the inventory off the shelves and deliver it right to your office door. Not even sure where to start, shoot me an email or let’s talk by phone. There are tons of options for you to free up time and space.

As always IKEA has some great pieces that could get everything in its place in your office. A big thank you goes out to Becky and Matt of IKEA who made our NAPO AZ experience a great one.
