As you may know, IKEA released its 2021 catalog yesterday (and celebrated the catalog’s 70th birthday!). The pages, as always, feature all sorts of gorgeous kitchens, fun cookware, Insta-worthy dinnerware, decorative pieces, and brilliant storage solutions. There’s a lot to love in the new catalog, but one thing stood out so much, we thought it deserved its own post. You ready for it?

It’s this SUNNERSTA Kitchen Organizer Set. We’re obsessed with it for many reasons. For starters, it can be installed without any sort of drilling or hardware, making it a great solution for rental kitchens. To set it up, you just raise the adjustable legs until they’re standing nice and snug between your countertop and the bottom of your upper cabinets. Then, you can arrange the shelves and basket however you see fit.

Another reason? It’s just $18! For $18, you get the rack, two hooks, two shelves, and a basket. There’s also a $16 option, which comes with more hooks and one big shelf. And you can buy additional accessories separately.

It’s also really really pretty. In fact, it reminds us a lot of the gorgeous storage solutions from Yamazaki Home, which we feature often but definitely comes with a non-IKEA price tag. Look at it all set up here!

The organizer can be used as a dish drainer (just put a towel under it to catch dripping water) or for extra storage. We like the idea of setting it up near a sink to hold soap, sponges, brushes, and more. Or try loading it up by the stove with your most-used tools and utensils.

Note: If you’re a dedicated IKEA fan, the SUNNERSTA line may sound familiar to you. It launched in 2017 with a whole mini kitchen setup (see Kitchn’s review of it here) and the line is expanding with lots of smart, small-space solutions. Even if you have lots of space (anyone?), this new organizer makes a lot sense.
