My first IKEA bookshelfSerhiiI chose to buy a bookcase from IKEA because of its walnut finish, shelf weight-bearing, and inexpensive cost. The room appears to be exceptionally cozy with walnut color shelving.
During assembly, I put one of these panels over a door handle and was a little disappointed to see a long, nonremovable scrape on the freshly unpacked side panels. Such an inferior surface quality surprised me. Also, the side panel cutout is too small for Canada's normal floor baseboard size.
The plastic hardware that was included was fine. It is important to know that once installed, IKEA furniture cannot be disassembled, and in my experience, the plastic hardware does not come loose over time.
I love the way these shelves appear, better than in IKEA's website photos.
I really wish IKEA would carry more walnut-colored furniture because my children and I adore it.
Great qualityHazelWorks for what I needed. I look be the versatility that you could adjust and add shelvings. A space saver!

Amazing productDan Kristian PenalosaThe instruction is clear even without a full text. It's easy to build but you have to ask help from someone because of the size of the materials.

Good productBebeHappy with purchase
Billy, a Classic WorkhorseHeatherI’ve been happily using these for 30 years. I’ve moved them a number of times and had them in all different rooms, sizes and arrangements. Some were trimmed out to look built in. I’ve replaced stained shelves and ones that bowed from being severely overloaded with books, but otherwise they hold up well. I still have a couple that are actually 30 years old. I recently bought a new one and I’m happy to notice that the new shelves are a little thicker. I bought a few extra shelves to replace others—they weren’t supposed to fit older frames but the dimensions were the same so I gave it a try and found I just needed to adapt the new pin style with a bit of tape. Obviously Ikea can’t suggest that!
Anyway, I think they’re a great buy.
