Perfect dresser for the nursery.LARISSAPerfect dresser for the nursery. Love the color. Only thing is I wish the drawers were a tad wider and deeper4
Sturdy and Looks Great!MagdaKSI bought this unit to use as a hutch in my dining room and it looks fantastic, has lots of storage, is sturdy, and I love the colour. The drawers glide smoothly. It does take a while to put together but it’s not difficult - only lots of steps. And at the step where you have to flip it over, definitely get a second person to help you so nothing gets loose or comes apart. I highly recommend this unit. Great quality at a great price.5
Drawer size misleadingJarno71Bought earlier this week. Assembly was tedious but not difficult. Typical IKEA assembly. Colour was as expected. The drawer sides are much shorter than drawer fronts. I was expecting a nice deep drawer, but drawer sides and back are about 1/2 the height of the drawer front. This was not indicated in product description. I am now looking for a drawer insert that allows me to maximize drawer space but IKEA does not seem to have any that fit this particular dresser.2
Disaster to assemble!SHockeypuckI purchased 2 of these and had them delivered. I’ve assembled easily 25 pieces of ikea furniture. This was a disaster so extreme that the pieces are absolutely destroyed and I haven’t completed assembly yet. The screw anchors do not hold, and the paper finish rips completely off the board. The holes around the anchors disintegrate so there is no way to salvage. I’m extremely disappointed with this purchase, and of course can not return because all stores are currently closed. It’s a $700 painful lesson learned.1
Love it!Sam FBought this as I downsized to an condo. This dresser took a bit to build but is sturdy and holds a lot without taking up a lot of space. Height is perfect to put a tv. Color is amazing and the 9 drawers gives the dresser a modern look. Love it!5
Horrible design. Collapsed. DO NOT BUY!Gio1970Hi I have to say that this was the most disappointing purchase I've ever made from IKEA. Actually, I wasted $300 because it collapsed, ruining it beyond repair. And I paid for this to be delivered a couple weeks ago, costing me an additional $79. That's almost $400 gone. I followed instructions, for the record. At one point, it tells you to turn the frame over on its side so you can continue building it. This is before you put the feet on. Anyway, I began to shift it to the new position and it fell apart completely, ripping the wood around the holes, making it impossible to put together. I couldn't believe it. It was 2am, and I have been needing to organize my condo for a long time and this set of drawers was going to allow me to finally organize my home. I was so upset and angry. I couldn't believe how poorly the design is. Honestly, this product should not be sold. DO NOT BUY! I wasted $300 (+$79 delivery). And because of the pandemic, I don't know what they're doing with returns. I looked it up when this happened two days ago and they said returns were temporarily stopped. I ended up throwing everything in the garbage because there was no point in keeping this ruined piece of furniture and all of the boxes that remained. BTW : I took photos after the collapse if anybody at IKEA cares to look. Again, this should not be sold.1
Looked nice, assembly was a nightmarebossbeachI’ve been waiting to get this chest of drawers for months and have been saving. however, when assembling with my mom, it was so easy to mess up and incredibly difficult to undo those mistakes. when putting the sides of the drawers together, it was very hard to get them flush, which then caused an issue later on where it was nearly impossible to get the top on. we actually had to remove the dowels for it to fit. some of it was our fault, but i wish there were some clearer instructions. i haven’t even gotten to the drawers yet, and by the other reviews, i’m not looking forward to it.2
be careful about the color.GhMTI bought this drawer and assembled it and here are my comments: 1) The assembly was hard (so many heavy pieces) 2) The drawer is VERY HEAVY, you definitly need help to carry and assemble it. 3) The color does not look like what you see in the photo and it is not a nice color as well. I returned it eventually because of the color, although it fitted perfectly in my room.3
Difficult assemblyKaren123456789The finished product is nice, but we really struggled with the assembly of the drawers - there is a clip that never seemed to align properly and required a lot of force, and there are 18 of them, so I wouldn’t recommend it for someone without good hand strength.3
Fantastic DresserLizDodThis dresser is excellent for my daughter's room. The drawers are a great size for toddler clothes and I love that there are 9 of them so things are easily seperated making it easier for her to pick her own clothes.5
Great OrganizerRogrUsing it in the front hall and it works perfectly for hats, mits, scarves, grocery bags, keys, you name it, Great organizer.5
Solid pieceAnnie222266I just finished assembling this with my husband and I am so impressed by the quality and look! This unit is definitely of better quality than other Ikea dressers, it is made of solid wood, nothing flimsy there. The drawers are of generous size and I added some organisers to maximise space. Assembly was not as bad as expected. loving it so far5
Excellent productSPA07We use it for multiple storage purpose. It's great.5
Great dresserErinF84Pay attention to instructions tho as I messed up the backing of dresser nothing numbered4
Tim727Great dresser, time consuming to assemble, but super sturdy. We bought two of them for his and hers.5
Great DresserCass568I love this dresser. Great colour and easy assembly. My only criticism is that the drawer sides are quite short and don't come up the full height of the drawer. I don't think this is a big negative because if they did and the drawer was full, it would be difficult to find things on the bottom anyway. Overall really like this dresser. I assembled the dresser without the legs (but with felt pads) so that it's a good height for my nursery and to put a change pad on top.4
Love all the drawersLianeSThe nine drawers give us easy organization. Bryygja is also beautiful, love the colour and sleek style.5

Secure your home from tipping furniture

When your child begins to crawl and climb, the whole home turns into an exciting adventure land. But, since the toddler doesn’t have any risk awareness, the home environment can hold some hazards, for example furniture that can tip over. Sometimes it can be difficult to see the risks at home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

Low furniture can tip too

One might think that only high, narrow furniture can tip over – not a low, deep chest of drawers filled with heavy things. But, if several drawers are open, the center of gravity shifts and the chest of drawers tips over. Unfortunately, both children and adults can be seriously injured, even fatally, if they end up under the weight of a falling chest of drawers. Accidents can also happen because heavy objects on top of a piece of furniture fall down, for example, a TV. The heavier things, the more serious consequences. Experience shows that it’s absolutely safest to secure all furniture that risk tipping over to a wall.

Remember the laws of physics?

When we develop our furniture, we do everything we can to make them as stable and safe as possible. It affects the choice of materials and the furniture’s construction. But, we haven’t yet figured out how to outsmart the laws of nature. Like the fact that a pulled out drawer works like a lever. Perhaps you remember the principle of leverage from the physics lessons in school? If not, it can be described like this; even a small weight can shift the center of gravity considerably if the weight is applied to a pulled out drawer (or an open door). It means that a small child that stands, sits or climbs on an open drawer can cause a large chest of drawers to tip over if it’s not secured – despite the child’s low weight.

Children and tipping chests of drawers

Children are curious and creative. That’s how they learn new things and discover the world around them. But, it also contributes to children 1-7 years old being more accident-prone. And the smallest ones, 1-4 years old, are most at risk of serious injuries. That’s why a chest of drawers – no matter model or size – can be a hazard if it isn’t secured to the wall. There are examples from all over the world where children have pulled out one or several drawers and climbed on them like a ladder, hung on, heaved up on, or climbed into them. But, by always securing your chest of drawers to the wall you can prevent and minimize the risks for children who explore the world.

Adults and tipping chests of drawers

It isn’t just children who accidentally tip over chests of drawers and risk injuries. Even as adults we sometimes open several drawers at the same time, especially if we’re in a hurry. Another mistake we sometimes make is to put too many or too heavy things in the front of the drawers. In all these cases the center of gravity shifts outside the base of the furniture and they tip over. An uneven floor, a carpet edge or a thick wall-to-wall carpet can also cause instability and tipping accidents.

Common myths and misconceptions

Sometimes it can be hard to discover the potential hazards in your own home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

No matter how logical this might feel, it’s actually wrong. All furniture can tip over. They become unstable if they have open drawers or doors that work as a lever and move the center of gravity. The force that’s generated when furniture tip over can be strong and cause very serious accidents – especially if they’re heavy-loaded.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip too and risk injuring someone. If several drawers are opened at the same time, the center of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the center of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the center of gravity the same way. That’s why you should always follow the assembly instructions that show how to secure your furniture to the wall.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

As a parent, it’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Unfortunately, many accidents happen when you lack foresight. Luckily you have good possibilities to minimize the risks if you secure chests of drawers and other furniture to the wall – even in rooms where the children don’t spend much time.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. But, latching drawers and doors can’t replace securing the furniture and doesn’t eliminate all risks. A child learning to walk usually likes to heave up against a chest of drawers by pulling a handle, and can thereby make it tip over.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

When children play, they sometimes forget what you have told them. Just because they are older doesn’t mean it’s all safe. In addition, many adults, especially elderly, hurt themselves badly, sometimes fatally, in accidents with furniture that tip over.

I rent my home and can’t drill holes in the wall

Most landlords in most parts of the world think it’s OK if you secure your furniture to create a safe home for your children. But, it’s good to talk to your landlord and perhaps explain what risks there are. Feel free to spread some of the knowledge we are sharing here.

The accident risk seems small, do I have to care?

More people than one might think are injured every year in accidents with tipping furniture. Between 2006 and 2016 approximately 47,000 children under the age of 18 had to seek medical care in the US because of accidents with tipping chests of drawers (source: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nov 2017). Holes in the wall are actually quite simple to fix – there’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.

Secure your chest of drawers, simple and safe

When you buy a chest of drawers from IKEA you should always follow the assembly instructions and secure it with the accompanied fittings. They’re easy to mount, and screws and plugs are included. Just fill the holes with putty when you want to move your chest of drawers, or are moving to another home.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

All furniture can tip over, especially if the drawers are opened and the center of gravity shifts.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip over too, so always follow the assembly instructions.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

It’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Many accidents happen when they're out of sight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s good. But, it doesn’t replace securing the furniture to the wall.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

But, they easily forget. It isn’t all safe just because they are older.

My chest of drawers is stable and from a well-known furniture company

Even the seemingly most stable piece of furniture can tip over.

The risk of accidents seems small, do I have to care?

People are injured in these kinds of accidents every year. There’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.
