Ratings and reviews

BelissimoIts perfect! Exactly what I wanted5
Perfect for clothes storage.Fahim_TorontoI would definitely recommend this product. Easy to assemble. Drawers are deep enough to put my clothes in.5
Great decor dresserMasikaFooteKinda hard to put together but stained it and changed the handles and looks amazing now! Kinda sucks that I had to pay for shipping since curbside pickup wasn't available so I didn't really get it on sale, hoping that maybe ikea will be generous enough to refund me for shipping, since it was out of my control4
Love the style but not all drawers close nicelyChristina074We bought this for our nursery. We love the raw wood design and style however, the drawers were like magical chairs to try and get them to line up evenly and open and close properly. One drawer is still not closing nicely but it works and we love it enough to keep it. We’ve never had a problem with past dressers so wondering if it’s the material.4
Perfect sizeTLDDDrawer depth is deeper than I thought which is exactly what i needed, they just weren’t fun to put together. other than that it’s a good big sturdy dresser that actually manages to fit all my clothes5
Great fit for roomER18Plenty of storage space, great showpiece5
Perfectly sized drawersMumbert19Folded jeans and shirts fit perfectly front to back without wasted space behind. The drawers run smoothly and it was reasonably easy to put together. I plan to paint mine with a soft white chalk paint and protective topcoat.5
What a dud!!!!!!VeryVery disappointed 100Ordered this on line for pick-up, never got a confirmation that the order was ready for pick-up. Got it home and put it together then stained and sealed it. Two days later is cracked down the left side gable. Phoned IKEA, got hung up on, when called back (each call took 35 mins to talk to someone)they said would call me in 72 hours.That was two week ago, never got the call. IKEA’s customer service is the worst ever, won’t be going back there and I don’t care is it doesn’t effect their bottom line. Only one less loyal costumer.1
6 drawer chesttdhcalgaryI bought this 3 weeks ago and am very happy with it. Assembly wasn't as hard as anticipated (follow directly closely and you will be fine)5
Life in SurreyFantastic for a small space and nice simple design that suits any style.5
Very nice unitHahahzbevI love this dresser, it’s tall and smells very good :) it was however difficult to assemble, and the drawers are small.4
Great DresserKenner06We have two of these. One is for my daughter's room and has her changing pad on top. The other is for our room. Lots of storage. Very sturdy. Takes a few hours to assemble though!5
excellent dresser with hand burned pyrographyRandallwynI bought this dresser to customize with pyrography. I was worried as some of the other reviews made me unsure, however it fit together with no problems and all the pieces were there.5
Drawers do not fitMichael833As echoed by another review, I could not get all the drawers to fit. No matter how I arranged them, couldn't get any to fit in the bottom left side. I think the frame is slightly off center. Tried sanding it down as that reviewer recommended, but couldn't get it to work. Ikea is sending me another one, but now I have to spend a day making it again and hope that we don't have the same problem.1
Drawers not sturdyGeraldine2019I bought this dresser drawer about a month ago. We stained it and it turned out really nice. However after 1 week of having the clothes in the dresser the bottom of the drawers started sagging and now the bottom of the drawers are coming away from the back of the dresser leaving a gap. Because we stained the dresser we can’t return it . So now we’ll have to put brackets inside the drawers to fix this as wood glue won’t do the job. I’m disappointed that this happened and won’t buy dressers again as fearing this is the case in all ikea dressers.3
LURVIG Scratching mat2018musicgreat value for the money!5
K 001Put this in our guest room love the extra space for friends and family.5
Important flaw - Half of the drawers do not fitjrpoulinThe central piece is not perfectly centered, so there is not enough space on the left side, and the drawers simply don't fit. I managed to fix it by sculpting/sanding dents where the metal parts are attached, which enlarged the space and made the drawers fit. I was a lot of manual work however for a furniture that's supposed to work as is. Apart from that, the furniture is nice and sturdy, and it looks good.1
Lots of storage spacePauline in KingstonBought this dresser for my sons room. It seemed bigger at home that at the store! Lots of space for all his clothing and is a nice height for displaying items or a TV. Love the pine look but also having the option of painting it down the road.5
Very happySam022This dresser is very sturdy, and solid. The drawers are big and accommodate bulky items like sweaters. Pretty easy to assemble, I did it myself.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.
