Ikea Billy Review

After posting some videos of this Ikea piece to my Instagram two weeks ago, I received so many questions asking what type of cabinet it was and if I could share some more photos with you. Just to recap, Daniel and I share a very small closet and we really weren’t maximizing the storage space which constantly left it feeling cluttered and hard to access all of our items. We decided it was time to get a stand alone cabinet for our bedroom which could house all of my folded items, shoes and bags – giving him much more room in our existing closet.

I didn’t want something too deep as the cabinet is directly across from our bed and we need a clear pathway. I decided on the Billy bookcase, which is the same one we have in our kitchen. The Billy is one of Ikea’s best selling pieces and for good reason, at a little over $300 it looks really well made. We got the double Billy to maximize storage and settled on the option with the half glass, half panel door. I am loving all of the extra space I have for my clothes and think it makes a great addition style wise to our bedroom!

    I debated built ins for awhile but couldn’t stomach the price this is a great alternative for our little inlet area. I may display books and other items!

    I love that idea Alyssa! I have an all glass one in my kitchen and use it for pretty dishes and cookbooks.
