Ratings and reviews

Manufacturing errorsAndrewOrdered 3x of the deeper 50cm cabinet and all three had a backing board that was *slightly* too wide, just by 1-2mm, but it was enough to throw the cabinet out of alignment. Took them apart, tried different orientations, and tried every combination to ensure it wasn't my error. It wasn't. The sideboards have bent and split at the back where they meet the too-wide backing board, but I'll live with it rather than deal with the hassle of returns. These used to be bulletproof quality but the backing boards on the batch I got were wrong size. Would not buy again.1

Decent and usefulANTONELLAI purchased this cabinet to turn into a coat closet at my small entry way. I added a rod inside further back, added hair pin legs and stained it. I left the backing off and the shelves I used for other things. It came broken but IKEA sent a new one which was good. The doors did. It meet up at the same heights and I find that annoying.4
No ifs, ands, or gaps about itDikosavaI have had the Ivar cabinets in my home since the beginning of time. This is the best storage made fully of wood that you will get for this price - anywhere, not counting your grandma's attic. The assembly is a piece of cake, the look is smooth and frillless. You will get a sturdy, reliable, forever piece of furniture you can then zhuzh up any way you want. We added long vertical brass handles and IKEA pine legs to ours and have been loving it for years now. As for the gap between the doors, this is totally fixable, just check out a couple of videos online on how to tinker with the screws in the hinges and you will get the gapless IVAR.5
Good valueLindaI purchased these to create built in units. The quality is good. I think these are good value for the cost.5
Trash False AdvertisingBexJust like the title says. This product is trash. I’ve also tried two different style paints on this piece according to what works best with pine and neither work. The colour just soaks into the pine no matter how many coats you put, you see the pine underneath and what is clearly beige paint it somehow comes out looking grey on the pine. At this point I’ve wasted so much time and paint on this product I just want to chuck it in the trash. Sadly I have to put one star as I can’t put zero.1
Great Wood cabinetDeanPrice was very reasonable, went together quite smoothly and mounted nicely.4
Love these!LindsayBought these some time ago as added pantry storage. We painted them, added legs and put a custom cut bamboo countertop on. I see a lot of complaints about gaps in the doors but it can be fixed by moving the hinge on the door side around until you find the spot that closes it up. Before ikea was offering that adjustment, I found it with a simple google search. This is a wonderfully built cabinet. Although I will say that the screws on the hinges loosen every now and again and you have to retighten them but a lot of Ikea stuff is like that unfortunately. Hoping to buy more!5

The cabinet is solid, andJenaThe cabinet is solid, and all the pieces were in excellent shape. The only issue we had with it was we were planning on using two of the IVAR cabinets as a storage unit for under our wall mounted TV. But once we put together the first unit we received the top edges were not as flush as we would have liked, also there is about a 1 inch gap between the cabinet doors3
Nice CaninetPennySolid, we sanded,stained and added legs to it,.liked it so much we came back and bought another. I struggled a little.hanging the doors straight but with a little time I managed.5
Great pieceAlyssaGreat piece5
Returned it.StephanyThe gap between the doors, even after maximum adjustment, didn’t look right. I returned the two units I bought.1
Perfect storage for pantry. Easily built/installedVerified BuyerWe bought this to update a laundry pantry room. They look great on the wall and hold A lot more than expected.5
Doors don’t futVerified BuyerI bought this from the store in Edmonton Alberta, we had put together and the doors are about 2 inches short on width, can’t tale back would cost more to drive back will not recommend this Love the look but would look better with doors that fit2
So far so goodLindsayBought 2 of these cabinets to act as extra storage and counter space for my small kitchen (ikea hack). Painted them sage green and they took the paint wonderfully although I would suggest sanding first. The back panel is incredibly wobbly which I will probably caulk later. I googled how to close the space between the cabinets (thank you reddit users) and it’s perfect. Can’t wait to get some legs for it and a countertop and put it to use.4
This cabinet has flawsVerified BuyerI have assembled many Ikea pieces over the years and haven't had trouble like I did with this one. I like this cabinet. For the price it's decent, however, Ikea really needs to look at the design of the doors and hinges. No matter what adjustments I tried I could not get the gap between the doors to anything less than 1/2 without causing the doors to loosen to the point of falling off. I have resorted to using shims on the inside hinge in order to close the gap. Luckily I have the tools and know-how to do this. The gap is unacceptable and I feel this is a design flaw on Ikea's part. I gave 1 star for ease of assembly/installation because of the hinges/doors.2
Finding storageStephanieIt is a super easy to assemble cabinet easy to customize. However you can adjust the doors all you want. They will not come all the way together. So if that’s a deal breaker then don’t get them. But they’re a very cost effective cabinet4
simple cabinetFranthis cabinet goes together pretty easily. It's hard to see, but there is a small gap between the doors, which I don't care about. Getting the shelves in once you've installed the doors is very hard without damaging things. Either loosen the hinges, or install shelves before you tighten everything. Otherwise, it's a snug, solid little cabinet.3
small pine cabinet with tricky hardwareVerified BuyerI was hoping to game the IKEA quality-price system by selecting a pine cabinet for my office storage, and whitewashing it; but Ivar has some utility and quality deficits. 1) Be assured that the back of this small 3'x3' utility cabinet is a thin, folded sheet, not wood. 2) Screwing in the hardware leaves a big gap in the middle between the two doors. You need to fidget with it, and the screws are more difficult to screw in, in order to lessen the gap down to 1/4, the minimum gap between the doors. 3) To open the doors, the cabinet needs to be off the ground as it has no base; but it also has no legs, or leg-attachment hardware, so it is meant to be hung on a drywall. It's not ideal for friable plaster walls. 4) Although this cabinet is depicted with magazine holders in adverts, the doors have interior braces, making the cabinet, at 24 usable cm deep, a bit too shallow for storing work documents.2

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in a responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.


What is solid wood?

Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
