Scratches easilySTAMOSEven though it looks really nice, I’ve had a number of scratches on it during the building process. I’ve assembled it on carpeted area while wearing gloves but still, certain sides are full of scratches. If it wasn’t meant for my kids bedroom I’d probably take it back but I know it’ll get scratched some more. Besides that, it was relatively easy to put together and the space of the drawers is adequate. It’s easy for my kids to put clothes in and out.3
Cool kids furnitureNattlesMy kids love it. Super happy with it5
HorribleBbt5I bought two of these wardrobes, along with a white Hemmes dresser. The white one was perfect. These ones awful experience. The actual assembly wasn’t too bad up until the drawers. Why on earth would they design a metal frame door with plastic holders. What’s wrong with screws? My other dressers were fine and sturdy. These drawers took ages to actually assemble and hurt your thumb to the point of bruising. We moved the dressers in place and put clothes in, there of the 10 drawers fell apartment. This purchase alone has made me swear off ikea.1
Beautiful Spatious DresserKayla3Very impressed with this piece! I was browsing for other products when my dad spotted this dresser. We were all immediately drawn to the beautiful navy blue colour and unique style. We were all surprised by the reasonable price point of such a large piece of furniture too. The boxes that the pieces come in are a bit awkward to manoeuvre and 2 of the 3 were very heavy but the extra moving effort was well worth it for the stability of the finished product. We had 3 people putting it together and there were no issues. We struggled momentarily with one of the 5 drawers but it just took some extra elbow grease to get it done. As long as you work with a buddy, follow the instructions step-by-stepn and pay close attention to the details in the pictures, this should be a relatively simple build (although reasonably time-consuming). The blue colour looks even more beautiful in my room - very subtle, classy, and on trend.5
Difficult to assemble & dents easilydksaphireBeware, this is very difficult to assemble. Compared to other Ikea products we have purchased (Pax wardrobe, couch, Stuva kids wardrobes, Lillangen bathroom cabinet) we found the directions confusing and had to contact the store for help. Ikea provides plastic cams instead of metal ones, which are difficult to insert in the holes during assembly. The metal drawers are difficult to snap together. We found many pieces were scratched when we took them out of the box and during assembly we found the paint finish scratches and dents easily. For a brand new product for 2019 we were surprised by how poor the quality is.2

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, it means that the home environment can hold some hazards, one of them being furniture that can tip over. Luckily you have good opportunities to limit accidents by knowing what they are and what to do about them. Here you can read more about why a chest of drawers can tip over, and why you always should secure it 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.
