Simplicity and genius come together when we are at IKEA in a way that other furniture stores just cannot match. In fact, they have certain pieces that can be used in a variety of ways, if you are aware of the proper hacks.

If you are someone who is struggling to find a proper bed frame (the struggle is real), this is the perfect story for you. Did you know that IKEA just might have the perfect solution for you after all?

The world of TikTok is here to share its latest find. They have discovered that the aforementioned bed frames can be constructed with the company’s Ikea Kallax collection.

These cube-shaped shelves are as versatile as it gets and they just may help with your sleeping arrangements.

These four by two cube units are also much cheaper than springing for an actual bed frame with storage, so it is easy to see why so many young people have leaped into action here.

We wish that we had known about this one when we were first starting out! Those first couple of years in off-campus apartments would have gone a lot more smoothly.
