Product details

A simple unit can be enough storage for a limited space or the foundation for a larger storage solution if your needs change.

You can choose to place the cabinet on the floor or mount it on the wall to free up floor space.

Assembly is quick and easy, thanks to the wedge dowel that clicks into the pre-drilled holes.

Must be completed with EKET suspension rail if you choose to mount the frame on the wall. This frame requires 1 suspension rail, 35 cm long, sold separately.

To be completed with feet or legs if you choose to place the cabinet on the floor. Sold separately.

The max load for a wall-hung cabinet depends on the wall material.

Eket CubeVerified BuyerBought three, very happy with my purchase.5
Great little boxes with soVerified BuyerGreat little boxes with so many uses5
dissapointingVerified BuyerI was really disappointed that the way to build this has become really difficult, I broke one of the pieces that hooks inside and on the other one its not flush so doesnt look neat, ive never had any trouble before buying this product.1
Nice productVerified BuyerThey are a bit fiddly to assemble but once assembled it looks good and can be used in different ways depending on one’s choice. I’m happy with it4
Good quality, tricky to assembleVerified BuyerBought this cube to use as mini bookshelf/table in my small reading corner. As others have noted, it takes a bit of force to snap the sides together and I ended up having to use a hammer which left some marks. Thankfully with it being a square, I’ve put that side as the one resting on the floor so not visible but worth bearing in mind if it’s going to be wall mounted.4
Very well designed so youVerified BuyerVery well designed so you don't see any fixings. Very elegant5
Good size for a cabinet.Verified BuyerThis is just what I’m looking for. You can hang it on the wall or it can stand on its own whichever you prefer. Bought it on the sale too, which is a bonus. Good value for money!5
Just what we needed.Verified BuyerJust what we needed.5
Nice space-saving stuff.Verified BuyerNice space-saving stuff.5
Hard to put togetherVerified BuyerLooks great when completed, but very difficult to put together. Have made up loads of IKEA products and would almost call myself an expert, these are the hardest I have come across. Odd for such a simple item.3
Bits missingVerified BuyerBits missing and despite repeated attempts to contact customer service no joy. So useless cabinets sat here until I can make the drive back to store.1
The IKEA unit that broke meFay PaisleyV hard to build. I bought 3 and I managed to break the plastic grey projections on 2 of them and used wood screws to complete job. Vowing my future will be ready assembled.1
Lovely shelf.DuchieLovely shelf for daughters bedroom,goes very well with another one the same.5
Stay awayReviewer10853Hard to build, broke one completely, had to take one side of the fixers off and use glue as would not fit. Dont buy, please it was a throw away of £241
KevindorchLack of wall brackets a problem, when I purchased I had the impression they were included from reading the website. Quite a lot of force needed to assemble which led to plastic dowel breaking. I did attempt to give greater detail but apparently I used “inappropriate language”.???3
Shame about the fixingsGareth PLove the way you are thinking about assembly without tools however for the main part you still need a drill to affix to the wall and so not quite sure what you are saving. Fair bit of force required to push the final piece together and not surprised that others are finding it difficult. The primary problem is lack of adequate sign posting that extra brackets are required. I bought from a store and didn’t see any information to suggest that a wall cabinet wouldn’t come with brackets to affix to the wall!! Back to IKEA to purchase - a simple job turns into an afternoon wasted - incredibly frustrating. Also, on my iPhone11 I now can’t scroll up to see the beginning of my review!3
They break when assemblingsaragal13Very hard to assemble. You need to apply an enormous amount of force for the wee bits to slot in the holes and leave the different slabs flush. I was left with the back of my hands red and pretty sore after assembly to the point I had to stop. I'm a woman, but young and reasonably fit, so I don't think it should be this hard to assemble for me. I bought 5 of these and the wee bits broke in two occasions. I've managed to assemble them but I'm not sure they're fit for purpose, I'd be wary to put too much weight on them. I've seen other people complain about them breaking on the reviews, so I'd dare to say it's not a one-off mistake on my part. Pretty disappointed.2
Overpriced without fittingsjackie2727272727272727272Overpriced without fittings, £5 for a bit of metal that should be less than a couple of £. Designing a wall with these attached ends up being really unreasonably priced3
Cabinet1juneA bit dissapointed 3 sides fit together but when you put the final side in it doesnt fit together properly and there is a gap making it wobbly have tried all different way to try & close the gap but to no avail a shame because I really like it was planning on getting two more but now need to re think2
Lack of fixings/instructionsJanexxxI bought 5 eket cubes for my son's bedroom. When we started putting them together we then found we didn't have the wall fixings, it was not clear these had to be purchased separately!! So another trip to IKEA (50 mile round trip!) To get the fixings which at £5 a pack added another £25 to my purchase, starting to get expensive. So read the instructions for the fixings ... And guess what no screws or wall plugs for fitting to the wall. Really!! I think the pack should include the right tools for fixing to the wall. So another trip to a local DIY store to pick screws and wall plugs to get the job done. And now I find I need a template that was included with the eket cubes which because I had to get things separately was thrown out with the packaging!!! Not a good buy and very frustrating.1

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 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.

New technologies, new hobbies, a new family member ... both small and large changes affect life and people's needs at home. Not least when it comes to all the things that we need space for. Petra Kammari Enarsson is a product developer at IKEA and often visits the homes of customers to experience their everyday living and how good storage can make life at home a little easier. She remembers a family in Copenhagen which expanded every other weekend with the daughter from a previous relationship. ”She didn't have her own room, but the family had a solution where she had a loft bed in the living room and her private things were in a chest on the floor”. Petra thinks it's a good example of how more and more people are living in small spaces, and that a large part of everyday living takes places in the living room where we want things to be both practical and stylish.

Flexible furniture for new needs

Another obvious trend around the world is that many people move more often - just as Petra did when she was young. ”The problem is that a lot of storage furniture is so inflexible – upon moving or new needs arising, they can't be adapted. This means storage isn't optimal and it's difficult to keep track of all your things”. These insights inspired Petra and her colleagues to start looking at a more flexible and personal storage solution – something that can easily be updated so that people don't have to buy new furniture as soon as something in life changes. Petra then started to think about those fishing boxes she had when she was young and which were so easy to stack and move as needed. What if you could make a piece of furniture which consists of various smart modules that can be easily moved around, removed and added to?

Building with blocks

Petra and her team started by ordering cardboard boxes in various sizes. They took the boxes to different room environments where they moved them around like building blocks – stacking and combining them in various ways. The team also researched detailed facts about storage: on average, how many magazines do we have at home? What’s the ideal height for people to put down their mobile phones? ”Many of us put keys, telephones or bags in a specific place when we come home. We usually do it automatically, without thinking about it”, says Petra. The height that seems to suit most people is 80 cm, so a shelf at that height was a given in the mix of shelves, drawers and cabinets in different colours and styles that eventually became the EKET storage series. ”I'm so pleased that we chose to prioritise playfulness and freedom of choice with all the colours and sizes of EKET”, says Petra, who's looking forward to visiting more homes. ”I think that the customers will find lots of exciting combinations that we haven't even thought of!”.

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.

Material

What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
