There are plenty of spice storage options with IKEA, such as the Bekvam and Grundtal spice racks. But what if you want to keep your spices out of sight and in a dark area? As they’re supposed to be! Our solution is not only practical but it looks great at the end of a row of cabinets.
The modification is a relatively a simple one. Akurum cabinets have a depth of 12″ 7/8, so trim the back of the cabinet to a total depth of 8″. Keep in mind that less than 6″ isn’t very practical since some spice jars are wider.
More shelves should be added since the standard height for spice bottles is between 4″ and 5″. A 30″ wall cabinet can easily fit 4 shelves while a 39″ cabinet fits up to 5 shelves.
If spices aren’t a concern, then these reduced depth cabinets make great key holders and can easily be used in the bathroom as a medicine cabinet.
