Good basic sturdy bookcaseVerified ReviewerThis is the second one of these I bought for my home office. Sturdy. Shelves adjustable. Looks good. Price reasonable. What's not to like?
Bill bookcase in black/brownVerified ReviewerSturdy, simple, looks good. Took 3 attempts to get it right … nothing to do with the product itself lol. Great timeless piece of furniture!
Very poor quality.Verified ReviewerOrdered two. Arrived with one side damaged. As I unable to travel to store with it and had no wish to pay collection charges, I just had to make it do. Very poor quality. What has happened to IKEA? I used to love their stuff-not any more!!!!!

BookcaseVerified ReviewerLove this bookcase.. looks really good in the space I needed them for.. especially when I put doors on then.. so easy to assemble.. recommend them to anyone
Fine but poorer qualityVerified ReviewerThis is the first time in over ten years I've needed to buy new shelving and have bought the Billy range before. I have shelves that were bought 15+ years ago that still look great. The new batch of product doesn't feel as high a quality as previous purchases. The veneer finish isn't as nice and looks less appealing. There's a price hike when you go from the plain white to a veneer finish. They are fine for what I need them for, but I'm not convinced these will last as long as my older shelves.
Oak vaneer, quality lackingVerified ReviewerI was a bit disappointed with the quality of the bookcase if I'm honest. It was no where near the quality that it used to be. Nothing major but all the same irritating. Missing bits of vaneer, poorly finished edging and plastic fixings easily broken and the back is far too flexible! It went together reasonable well in 30 minutes and does the job but could have been better.
Great book caseVerified ReviewerLove this , plenty of space available for books and extra shelves available to buy if required
Great bookshelfVerified ReviewerEast to assemble, looks great and holds a lot of books
Reasonable quality. Value for money.Verified ReviewerThe quality is a bit mixed. The side, top and bottom are chipboard covered with a veneer. The oak coloured veneer is of a high quality - it looks really nice.
However, the back is just pieces of veneer, sellotaped together. I guess the calculation is that with the bookcase filled with books, you can't see it. It is a bit cheap, though. Strips of veneer chipboard would bring the bookcase up to the quality of a pine bookcase.
The construction instructions are clear and easy to follow. The bit that doesn't work is putting the back on the bookcase. The instructions say to do this with the bookcase flat on the floor, where gravity fights you all the way. A better idea is to turn the bookcase upside down so that top is on the carpet - then you can effortlessly slide the back into the groove, and the back is nicely positioned to put the nails in - much easier.

Probably the easiest piece ofVerified ReviewerProbably the easiest piece of IKEA furniture I have ever assembled and it look so sleek. Fits well into our space as we love the Nordic style! We actually split it into 2x shelves and 1x based on the space we have in our current rental and I love that you don’t have to commit to such a long furniture piece and can split it if needed! And it can always be added to… an extra shelf here, another Billy unit there! Highly recommend!
