EXPEDIT becomes KALLAX
EXPEDIT becomes KALLAX
At IKEA, we are grateful for the support and interest from customers that love our storage solution EXPEDIT. At the same time, we constantly look for new ways to improve our range and EXPEDIT is no exception. That’s why, we have updated and improved the EXPEDIT shelving units with a sleek, new design that is more durable and more child-friendly, but still fits all existing storage boxes and baskets - or your prized vinyl collection.
The new KALLAX range will be available in your local store soon.

Spot the difference
• Internal dimensions of the shelves remain identical
• External dimensions of the shelving unit have been reduced by 1cm on each side
• This lets us transport more KALLAX shelving units at once, reducing our costs and CO2 emissions, so we can share the savings with you
• Outer edges are slightly rounder, making it safer for children
• White KALLAX shelving units are a brighter shade of white than EXPEDIT
• Improved coating film makes the surfaces more durable and therefore less likely to scratch
