Amazon Duplicates for IKEA Favorites!

I am fortunate that I live about 20/30 minutes from an IKEA, assuming traffic isn’t terrible. I LOVE IKEA and shop there often for my organizing clients and myself! However, if you are not so close to an IKEA as I am but would still love to find the items that they offer, this list of IKEA duplicates may help! I will be listing my favorite IKEA items and then list a similar item to it that I found on Amazon. Understand that IKEA has some amazing prices so you may not be able to find a similar item at their price but at least you can find a similar item. You may have to just deal with a slightly higher price for the convenience of getting it delivered to your door versus driving to the nearest IKEA store.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide a picture of the IKEA item but know that they look very similar to the Amazon links I have included. I have also provided you with the IKEA item number for each item so you can look them up either on their website or on their app! Here we go!

There are affiliate links included in this blog post. I will make a small commission (at no additional cost to you) if you click the link and make a purchase.

Our first item is the EKET Wall Mounted Shelf Unit, currently listed at IKEA for $20 each. It is 13 3/4 x 13 3/4 x 13 3/4 in size. The item number is 803.346.03. I love this cube shelf because it can look modern or country or many other types of decor, based on how/if you paint it and what you put on it! So cute! It’s counterpart on Amazon is a bit smaller and a little more money but will come right to your door! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

My next pick is the Variera Flatware Tray. It is bamboo, 15 x 20 inches, and currently listed at IKEA for $17.99. The item number is 202.774.41 in the store. They actually have a TON of kitchen drawer tray options in the IKEA store. If you are near one, I highly suggest checking it out in person! If you are not, however, here is an Amazon alternative that is just a little more money and a little bit smaller in comparison. At least it will come right to your door! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

This next item is a BIG TIME favorite with my organizing clients and I have several in my own home. The Kallax shelf unit is a 4 cube shelving system that can sit on the floor or be mounted on the wall. The item number is 202.758.14 and it is currently listed as $39.99. The system measures 30 3/8 x 15 3/8 x 30 3/8. The bins that fit in the cubes are also sold at IKEA for $3.99 each at the time this article was written or you can choose from many other bins, drawers, and baskets at IKEA that fit in this unit! It is very versatile! The Amazon counterpart looks very similar but I should note that it is not quite as sturdy looking and the cubes are smaller so none of IKEA’s bin options will fit. You will have to find smaller bins and baskets to fit this one. It is still a good alternative if you don’t have access to an IKEA, though! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

If you don’t have much space in the entryway of your home, but need to create a landing zone for your shoes, keys, wallet, and mail to land, this next item is a great option that takes advantage of vertical space! When you are short on space, going vertical is a must! The Trones shoe/storage cabinet unit is a drawer that is mounted to the wall, which gives you a pull out drawer to store shoes in and a table top of sorts to arrange keys and other items that need a place to live while you are home. It is currently listed at $24.99 for a 2 pack and measures 20 1/2 x 7 1/8 x 15 3/8 so stacking one on top of another gives you a great top to place your items on and storage for roughly 4 pair of shoes, depending on the space they take up in the drawer. The IKEA item number is 803.973.13 for the Trones shoe cabinet. The closest one I found on Amazon is double the price and a little bigger, but does hold a few more shoes and uses vertical space. (Prices and shipping may vary.)

My next pick also works well in a landing zone or a command center of a home. It’s the IKEA Kvissle wall magazine rack, listed currently at $17.99. The item number is 901.980.30 and it measures 18 x 13 1/2 x 3 1/2. This unit is great for sorting mail or school papers right when you walk in the door and will really help reduce paper clutter on your kitchen counters! A similar rack I found on Amazon is a few dollars more and bigger but has the same number of slots. I feel it’s a nice comparison without over paying. I did find the actual IKEA rack but that seller wanted more money than this one so I chose to show you this one since that’s what I would purchase, if given the choice. (Prices and shipping may vary.)

This next item is so clever that I had to include it, even though it isn’t technically an organizing tool. It’s the IKEA Flisat doll house wall shelf. You can either use it as an actual doll house by mounting it low enough for your little ones to reach and filling it with IKEA’s cute doll house furniture OR you can mount it as a cute shelving unit that looks like a little house, for a nice decorative touch to your room! I love it! It is currently listed at $34.99. The item number is 502.907.85 and it measures 22 3/4 x 8 3/4 x 23 1/4. This was a tough one to find a similar product to because none of the alternatives I found could also be used as an actual doll house by a child. I did find the actual IKEA Flisat but they want double what IKEA charges for it. I’ll list both of the items I found and you can decide what the best fit is for you… (Prices and shipping may vary.)

One of my favorites, because I think it is so cute and versatile, is the IKEA Skadis Pegboard combination! We bought this for our eldest son’s room and he loves it! Good thing he loves it or I would gladly take it off his hands and use it in my home office! Oh, who are we kidding, I will likely buy myself one here shortly…. Anyway! It is a custom pegboard made only by IKEA that they make many accessories for. You can mount it on the wall or on the edge of a table or desk. It includes two shelves, one 5 pack of hooks, one container, and one 3 pack of containers with lids. The item number is 092.165.95 and it measures 22 x 22 inches. You can buy the pegboard separately and then buy whatever accessories you like but I love it in this set! The pegboard set below is the closest I could get to what IKEA offers. The biggest issue is that it is more of a rectangle than a square, so it takes up more space, and it only mounts to the wall, not to a table, which is a very convenient feature of the IKEA pegboard. Also, you have to buy all the accessories separately, so I’ve included some links for that, as well. The advantage, of course, is that it comes right to your door! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

The IKEA Kvistbro storage table is a really neat and decorative way to use furniture as storage! I love to crochet and think this little table would be a neat way to store my yarn! I can also think of other cute things to store in this, like books or kids toys. It is currently listed at $49.99. The IKEA item number is 204.333.71 and it measures 17 3/8 around x 16 1/2 tall. I was able to find an almost identical storage table on Amazon! It is just a tad bigger but the price is almost the same as IKEA’s! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

The IKEA Raskog three bucket rolling cart is super helpful in a garage, kitchen, playroom, craft room, or bathroom! It is designed to be easily rolled to where ever you need it and then tucked away when not in use. The Raskog is currently listed at $34.99. It has the item number 903.339.76 and measures 13 3/4 x 17 3/4 x 30 3/4. I did find some of the IKEA version of these on Amazon but they were more expensive so I chose to give you the link to the one that is comparable and also not quite as expensive, although it is still more than if you go to IKEA and buy theirs. You can definitely search the Raskog name in Amazon and find the more expensive IKEA version if you like! (Prices and shipping may vary.)

My next pick is the IKEA Kartotek mounted wall rack with five hooks. This is great for coats, hats, pots or pans, big cooking utensils, or anything else you can think of! At only $12.99, it’s a great deal and has labels if you want to assign hooks to people or things, as well! The item number is 803.470.78 and it measures 23 1/2 x 2 3/4 x 7 inches. The item I found on Amazon is the exact rack that IKEA sells, but double the price. That’s typical for IKEA items for sale on Amazon. If you’d like something similar but not exactly the same, I’ve supplied another link for a similar item. I just wanted to include the actual rack in case that’s what you really wanted. (Prices and shipping may vary.)

This pick is a great shelving unit for a garage or basement to help keep all those holiday decorations or tools organized! The IKEA Bror shelving unit is 3 big shelves plus the top of the unit and measures 33 1/2 x 15 3/4 x 74 3/4 inches. The item number is 392.687.24 and it is listed at $85.99 currently. It consists of powder-coated and galvanized steel. The similar shelving system I found on Amazon is not quite as big or sturdy but does come in at about $35 less than the IKEA version. Not to mention, it will be delivered right to your door! The choice is yours! (Prices and shipping may vary)

We have come to my final IKEA pick and it’s comparable Amazon choice…the Parkla storage case! At a mere $1.99, these little guys are so helpful when storing things under the bed or in the attack or basement! The item number is 503.953.82 and it measures 22W x 19D x 7H inches. I did find the exact IKEA product on Amazon but it is way more than if you go to the IKEA store and buy it. Here is another option, although it is also much more than the under the bed storage containers from IKEA. It is longer than the Parkla and it is delivered right to your door, so there’s that!

There are so many options at IKEA that I could type about them all day for a week and still barely scratch the surface! If, however, you cannot make it to an IKEA store, I hope this list of alternatives will help you in your journey to organization! Let me know in the comments below if you are trying any of these and how they work for you! If you enjoyed this post, give it a like!

Happy Organizing!
