Wall Mounting Experience with the Besta Suspension RailDawnThe picture has this unit wall mounted, I had thought All besta units can use the Besta Suspension Rail, but as for this unit it did not come with pre drilled holes, as there is no ikea near me we couldn’t return and because we waited for this unit we drilled the holes ourselves and went to a hardware store for the screws, it looks very good, although making the cabinet doors align was pretty difficult, overall putting it together took us 8 hours
Bracket provided don’t align with studManickBesta is good as a floor unit. But if you decide to put it on the wall the bracket provided by IKEA don’t align with stud. Checked the internet and it’s same for all folks. You have to hack with bracket to put it on the wall. IKEA if you are reading this pls fix it.
Besta believe it’s awesome!GiustinaI love the look, sleek, modern and simple!
Good product.MartiGood product.
Looks great, mounting was awfulChristineThis piece is meant to be mounted to the wall but was not designed with standard stud spacing in mind. If you do not secure this to studs, you are asking for a dangerous nightmare. Thankfully we had access to an unfinished side of the wall in the location where we chose to mount it, so we were able to add additional 2x4's to ensure the mount holes in the cabinet would be lining up with solid material, and not just drywall. I would recommend it as it looks great, but needs to be assembled by someone with some intermediate experience.
Perfect for my vinylCyrenaI am really happy with the Besta. I needed something that could store my vinyl, while being a slim fit under my 65" television. Looks great.
Very simple to put together, apart from the doors. They are fairly straight forward too, but spent some time getting them adjusted perfectly.
Great show home look!AlexeyGreat unit if wall mounted! Look slim but spacious! Mounting mechanism should be rail, current one is not the best, but can be worked around. Use YouTube and find out how to hang it! I have put the box underneath the unit when I was hanging it, so it was easy to do by myself. Absolutely mandatory to find studs. To heavy to be alone in drywall. Buy long and heavy duty anchors!!!! Nothing is more important.
IKEA, use a rail system to wall mount it, current system is absurd for the weight of the unit!
Hinges are not strong enough to hold doorsVerified BuyerOnce it was put together I altered the alignment of the doors as much as the bracket would allow and yet each door still had significant sag to it. I had to end up removing the doors. I absolutely would not recommend the product.
Safety HazardSaraWe bought this product about 8 months ago and as it was directed in the assembly booklet assembled it to the wall. Today it fell off the wall. There are two major problems: 1) the booklet doesn’t even specify using anchors for this product and simply shows screws. 2) in our case both me and my husband are quite familiar with these kinds of assemblies and used strong anchors. But even that didn’t help. We have been working from home due to COVID-19 and it just happened that it decided to fall today. Otherwise I would have been severely injured or even died. Please be very careful when buying and assembling this product to the wall. Maybe even look for studs in the wall and try to screw some of the screws trough the studs for extra assurance.
