Product Review: IKEA’s ANTONIUS Insert

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Suzanne here today with a product review of IKEA’s ANTONIUS basket insert. I really love the versatility of this product and use it quite extensively in my own craft room… you may have noticed it in some of the pictures I posted a couple of weeks ago in my craft room tour, here. While this product was designed specifically to fit in the wire baskets of the ANTONIUS shelving/drawer system, there are many other uses for this basket insert, both in and out of the IKEA system.

My favorite part about this product is its $3.00 price tag! Although I find it quite long at 14 5/8″ x 9 1/2″ x 2 3/4″, if you can get the ANTONIUS to fit in your drawers, baskets, etc. then you will have the opportunity to get a really great organization piece at a very affordable price.


I searched the web to see how others were using the ANTONIUS basket insert and came across some great ideas! While most of the inserts were being used in the IKEA system for craft storage, there were also some unique uses that I would have never thought of myself. Let’s take a look…

  1. Thanks for this article. Spot on for me as I just bought the Ikea Raskog/Rastog? cart and I have a set of those wire drawers. Wondered what organizers would work with these.
