Set size. The cubicles can not be made larger or smaller.

Yep, IKEA Expedit Bookshelves. They come in 2 (cubes) by 2, 2 x 4, 4 x 4, 5 x 5, and more. Just bought some yesterday and LOVE them! So versitile. :)

Great for spare bedroom! Is the bookcase able to be put on carpeting?

We have an Expedit in our office and it's on a low pile carpet. It comes with brackets you can use to attach it to the wall to stabilize it. It's a very heavy unit assembled.

That's a nice lamp, but (and I mean this in the nicest possible way) it's a little too feminine for the space that I would put it in.

this is a fantastic idea for a studio or efficiency apartment! - the spacious cubby takes care of storage for dishes, cookware, cookbooks, books, magazine, videos - everything!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Making Maximalism Work
In Nina van der Goor's place, tons of stuff makes the room feel fun, not cluttered.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: The Random Light
This image and the one below are a great example of how the experience of the texture changes depending on where you're standing.
Branch out from just books. These three Expedits house plates and tableware (among other things), all easily accessible from the dining area.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Make a Place for Children's Art
Art needn't always be hung; leaning framed drawings and painted canvases along the top of a bookshelf brings in casual interest, especially when layered behind other favorite collected items.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Rethink the Dining Room
For an instant playroom, bring in a couple of storage units for organization. Choose a table that isn't too delicate and looks better after a few beatings. Remember the worn look is on-trend these days. When company comes for dinner, cover table with a pretty tablecloth and scrub crayon markings from the wall. Last, add ambiance. Everything looks better in candlelight.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Dining Rooms With a Personal Stamp of Style
For a more casual eclectic feel, add interesting art, sculptures, whatever you want to display. Enjoy making conversation about the meaningful decor you see over a long good meal.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Game Rooms: Carve Out a Place for Fun
A lot of people think about using their front rooms/living rooms as a kid zone. This is the first room visitors see, and it can get messy. Instead, try using a rarely-used dining room. I dig the idea of bookcases that can be used as cubbies for holding toys. (Get baskets that fit inside to keep the small stuff together and away.) And the dining table is a great space for art projects, building with Tinker Toys or Legos, and homework.8 ways to reinvent the dining room
Elsewhere in Nina's home, two large Expedit shelving units from Ikea store books and the vintage dishes Nina uses in her work. The top surface serves as rotating display space for paintings, framed prints, pottery and vintage treasures.
Danyelle Mathews added this to The Family Home: Creative Multi-Use Workspaces
Embrace open shelving. It's important to have plenty of supplies on hand for your children's use. Make it easy for them to access art supplies, toys and games with inexpensive open shelving like this piece from IKEA. If you're not keen on seeing everything stored on the shelves, try placing things in baskets for a tidier look.
Ikea's Expedit bookcase is the best friend of any organizing project. As Ninainvorm demonstrates, those cubbies keep everything easily arranged.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Walls Play Dress-Up With Kids' Artwork
A few times a year my children come home from school with ceramic art projects. Displaying them together on the top of a bookcase brings greater attention to their work.More:A Gallery Wall for Every PersonalityFrameless Art Bares Its Soul
You can highlight your beautiful clutter by making the rest of the room spare and coordinated and saving one place — in this case, it's the bookcase —for a riot of color and texture. Against an empty background, a cluttered area looks intentional and artistic.
4. Get Rid of Some StuffHere's how you do it: Clean the room. Then sit down and calmly look around. Get rid of whatever catches your eye in an annoying way. I like a lot of stuff, but even if you're a maximalist, you want only the stuff that gives you pleasure. Too much of a good thing is still too much.
If you don’t have enough built-ins to house these other supplies, don’t be afraid to use furniture you normally see in bedrooms or living rooms. A bookcase can be used in place of cabinets to hold anything.
