Here are our top picks for highly-rated IKEA shelves: 1. SVENSHULT Wall shelf with storage

Price | $29.99

This unique shelf will add a pop of color to your walls while providing storage. It can also double as artwork and a way to showcase your creative side.

Here are some other reasons you’ll love it:
Can be mounted a variety of different ways Ability to create patterns Ample space to store belongings Two wood shelves Colorful red mesh net Even enough to store mugs, books, and decorations Net will fit cords through it Easily and conveniently charge electronics on it Can be spray painted to match other decor Substantial max weights Maximum load – 35 pounds Maximum load/shelf – 15 pounds Maximum load/compartment – 4 pounds
Cons that some reviews want you to consider:
Difficult to assemble on your own
“I installed this shelf on our garage wall near the power outlet so I can store my radio and electric lawn mower recharger. The mower recharger cord rests on the u-shaped shelf and is easily accessible. Plus, it keeps these essential tools off my workbench and close to the power source. Not to mention it looks cool – better than a boring set of shelves.

If I were to purchase a second unit, I would assemble it first and then install on the wall – I suggest this approach instead of instructions.”

– Dan
2. SKOGSTA Wall shelf 

Price | $39

Whether your home is full of rustic charm or all the modern industrial your heart desires, this shelf will fit seamlessly in any space. And while it will create a warm focal point on a wall, it also adds a modern touch with its clean lines.

Here are some other reasons you’ll love it:
Durable and natural shelf Made of solid wood Goes with many different home decors Seamless design Uses concealed hardware when mounted to a wall Pre-treated with hard wax oil Maximum load capacity – 44 pounds 9″ Deep so it can fit slightly, larger decor
Cons that some reviewers want you to consider:
According to IKEA customer service, traces of formaldehyde can be found in this product as it is a naturally occurring substance, however, they do not add formaldehyde to the products – some reviewers don’t like this. Had to drill their own holes to mount to the wall.
“I have had this shelf in our kitchen for 4 years holding up coffee, snacks, mugs, and other stuff over our coffee station. We screwed some hooks for the mugs into the underside (it’s mounted like a stylized r) and the oiled acacia behind them looks beautiful. Plus, it’s been very easy to wipe clean and I just occasionally re-oil to keep it looking beautiful.”

3. LACK Wall shelf unit

If you need something stylish, minimal and with ample storage space for your wall, this LACK wall unit is just what you need! Plus, I absolutely love that it can be hung either vertically or horizontally!

“I have purchased two of these LACK shelves now and love them! One was for my son’s CrossFit gym, which we hung horizontally, for members to use as cubbies and even to place larger items like their gym bags. Just recently, I bought another one to place next to a desk in my granddaughter’s room – it completed the look with floating shelves and works perfectly.” 

– Sandy
4. EKBY ALEX Shelf with drawers

Cons that some reviewers want you to consider:
Drawers are small and narrow which will only hold small, flat items like pencils, scissors, etc. They don’t come with brackets for mounting
“Sometimes you just need a minimal setup to keep your life organized. I bought this desk for my daughter to use as a vanity since she just has a small space available in her closet. So far she loves it and it’s so nice that this shelf created her own little space. We anchored it to the wall to keep it steady and added IKEA pegboards as an additional display surface and easy access to beauty products. Perfect combination!”

My husband now uses this and not only does it look much better, but it’s much more functional. My husband found it easiest to use a rubber mallet to assemble it without any issues however, it seems really sturdy compared to other cubby shelves we’ve used in the past.” 

– Molly
7. FLISAT wall storage

Price | $14.99

If you’re looking to feature some of your favorite books, this shelf is the perfect way to display them. And if you have a baby on the way, it will definitely make for a great keepsake corner in their new room.

Here are some other reasons you’ll love it:
Durable Made of solid wood Timeless and clean style Can be stained or painted to match any decor Easily accessible for children to grab books if installed low enough It can be used with other products in the FLISAT series Can store small knick-knacks and books
Cons that some reviewers want you to consider:
Missing parts upon delivery Quality control is poor and wood seems completely different in color and texture than previous orders
“We bought 2 of these wall storage shelves for our kid’s rooms and it was easy to install, great quality, and very sturdy – the kids love them! Each shelf carries up to 16 regular children’s books and I appreciate the plain natural wood color which enabled us to paint them to match their rooms. The only thing I would recommend to IKEA for next time is to provide the screw for the walls because my husband had to go to Home Depot to buy this separately since this package does not provide the screws for the wall. Overall, our whole family is satisfied with my purchase!”
