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.

Looks lovely in situ but the pieces don’t quite fitVerified BuyerWe bought this to fill in a space in our kitchen under the counter where a small freezer used to be and it looks lovely with the accompanying wicker drawers/storage boxes we bought with it. But, although we have always found IKEA flat pack furniture easy to assemble, this unit was not. The reason is that of the sides is a millimetre too long so it doesn’t quite fit, and the unit looks slightly wonky. It may just be the case that we bought a faulty one and I would still recommend the unit and I would buy it again.4
It was easy to assemblyVerified BuyerIt was easy to assembly if you read the instruction and have eye for details.5
It was spot onVerified BuyerJust what I needed5
Very poor standardVerified BuyerBought 2 of these, both damaged and broken. Poor instruction and quality. And can’t return them for refund due to IKEA only allowing click and collect. If items are damage you should be able to return.1
easy assemblyVerified BuyerNo tools required to assemble just a drill if wall mounter like mine. Handy template along with the instructions make locating and hanging easy3
Impossible to put together & poor qualityRoseWoodVPoor quality, difficult to assemble and chip really easily. Look lovely online but not a fan of the assembly method at all.1
Practically impossible to put togetherMartinH1980Never before have I been so frustrated trying to assemble a piece of IKEA furniture and I've assembled a lot over the years. This piece of furniture now has some ridiculous plastic locking system that works OK with a bit of messing about until you get to the final piece. There is becomes impossible to line up and lock in properly even smashing it as hard as possible with a hammer. If you can build this without issue then I suggest you apply for Britain's Got Talent because you deserve a £250k prize money for being able to assemble it without gaps and keeping the back panel on. Unless you want a battered piece of storage furniture then this is the piece for you otherwise you're going to pay £40 for something that looks like it's been built by a school child in a woodwork class. Please Ikea, bring back the old assembly system and scrap this ridiculous plastic pegs that are supposed to push and slide.1
Good storage unitGracie 50Purchased to add to existing eked unit witth and depth of shelves makes storage of 12x12 craft paper and card easy to store flat most units are not so deep or wide will buy more as needed5
Horrendous.Sophie123466Don’t get me wrong these look great in store and online, perfect for hiding clutter in my sons room I bought 3 to make a long cabinet. Never has something looked so easy but been so hard. Genuinely impossible to put together, my hands are bruised the result being one broken cabinet, one wonky cabinet and one remaining in the box as I have given up and they are being returned.1
Horrendous to assemble and defective partsThomas0703Disappointed with this product. Looks smart but the assembly is terrible, made worse by defective parts. I triple checked but unfortunately one of the panels has the holes cut in the wrong place so they don't match the pegs. Some of it slots nicely but a lot of it requires a huge amount of physical effort and the last side I have no idea how to get on - it doesn't fit right and can't even be forced. Given it is more expensive than other similar products I would not recommend it.1
Mother knowsThis design was not easy to click together as described and I would definitely not buy this again. I found the last part particularly difficult to add and did not go on properly but it will have to do.2
Perfect bookcase or storage unit.Dial25Assembly was more difficult than other IKEA flat pack items. A tap with a hammer was required to get the corners to slide together. It was impossible just by hand! Everything else went well and the finished item looks good.4
I like itZantOk first 2 parts didn't click easily as required fairly high amount of force (I'm a she) but the idea of totally removing screws and other metal joining parts is excellent. Quick, neatly and nicely job done. A bit pricey but you safe time and time costs money so.. I like it. IKEA please do more such solutions for your range of products.5
DreadfulJoAnne2008Cheap flimsy badly designed doesn’t line up properly definitely not up to ikea standards1
Just rightWas already built so brilWas the perfect colour and size5
Terrible to assemble.MN1997I usually get a lot out of Ikea furniture but the Eket range is unnecessarily complex to assemble. Badly written instructions made it almost impossible to put together without damaging it. Kallax range is superior in every way.1
Neat storage spaceEmily291Brought 2 for our living room. Filled the gap we had perfectly and looks really good with the grey boxes in to hide away any clutter! Surprisingly holds quite a lot.5
Great storage unit, easy to assembleIanMcEket range is an easy to assemble range for providing storage. Recommended.5

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.

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.
