Variera Cover CapANTONELLABought this as I was advised from a sales associate in IKEA that they would cover Billy bookcase holes, but she wasn't honest with me about it.1
ErfanI bought this product 2 months ago when I purchased my kitchen it was really amazing and looks very beautiful on the cabinet5
Great finishing touchVerified BuyerBoy are these a pain to install -- my thumbs hurt. But just put on a podcast and slog through it. Finishes the inside of your cabinets nicely, not necessary but for an extra few bucks might as well but a bunch of packs and go for it!5
Gives your PAX that finished look!Verified BuyerI bought a PAX wardrobe and I love it, but the little holes were such an eyesore. Luckily, I tried these and they worked great, with the added bonus of also working in my Kallax. They are definitely a pain to install, and with three wardrobes to fill (the deep ones) it took seven bags of these -- that's with skipping a lot of the non-visible holes from drawers. If you have fewer drawers you'll probably need more, more drawers you'd need less, that sort of thing. So many tiny little caps. They come in strips of 10 that you just break apart to use, which is convenient. However, that little piece of plastic holding the pieces together can sometimes get in your way. That was a bit a bit of a headache after placing a few hundred.5
Looks great!JulieKnow that you have to install each individually which is time consuming and your figers will eventually start to hurt (I have a LOT of cabinets). They are a bit of pain to take out and you can't really reuse them once you do as you will likely damage it. SO make sure you have what you want where you want them. However, they are worth it! The cabinets look sooooo much better with them. ...and read the description - they are made to fit holes that are 3/16th in size. Otherwise they won't fit so don't review the product badly for trying to use it on something it's not meant to be...4
BrigitteI bought these to cover the holes inside the cabinets. They work great makes a nice clean look however I wish they already come installed and you just had to remove the ones you had to remove.3
Great but doesn’t fit BILLYVerified BuyerGreat for covering holes, but I had purchased these thinking they would cover the holes in my BILLY bookcase. They don’t. But with other ikea shelves I purchased years ago (where they do fit), they work great!!4
Works as expectedVerified BuyerI didn't even think of picking something like this up until I saw them online at Ikea. Now that I've bought a few I've become mildly OCD about dealing with the holes in our kitchen cabinetry. Also, if you have young kids, they *love* helping with this kind of thing.5
Excellent coverageWendyStumbled on this great find at Ikea, it's a great way to hide all those extra holes in your cupboards5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!


What is PE plastic?

PE, or polyethylene, is a versatile plastic with many uses. It can be soft and flexible as well as tough and strong. At IKEA we use PE for things like plastic bags, freezer bags, ice packs and chopping boards. A big reason why we like this plastic is that it can be made from renewable raw materials like corn and sugar cane.
