Reliable as everVerified BuyerLove the Hemnes series, contemporary but won't date and nice solid furniture. Loved this colour and was delighted to get it in the sale.5
Ideal living room drawers!mazza18Love these for our living room, just wish there was an option for soft close!4
Poor qualityNia1994Bought this for £215 back the day ikea opened from lockdown. Bowing in the centre and very disappointed. I don't have the receipt available to take back. Looked so nice in my new home too.2
I wouldn"t waste your money.TofffeI think there is material quality issue. Chest bowed in the middle, so drawers not lining up, is so hard to open and close.1
Very nice lookingSharrondRevived item with couple dents try to order replacement parts but the parts need you can’t get online, can’t call either. The table looks great but the dents are bugging. Would have taken it back but noticed at the end of putting it up5
Nice look but cheap woodLeelee45I really love these draws. Fit perfect in our room. But they are the more expensive ones where inside is wood unpainted. I think this looks cheap and Takky for the money we paid I would expect all white wood3
Fantastic storage spaceSuzeyxA solid piece of furniture with loads of storage space.5
Perfect storage for my daughters bedroom.Clare3I bought the white stained wood, rather than the grey or white, so in the future we can change it if needed. It’s a sturdy piece of furniture that ticks all the boxes. Building it is quite straight forward, but takes time. Worth it though!5
I wouldn"t waste your time.Linz41I wouldn't waste your time. Very difficult to put together and then bow within a matter of weeks. Ikea have been great and sent a replacement but having the same problem.1
Great piece of furniture, especially for the pricePaulG87My partner and I put this furniture together last night and it seriously took a long time. The instructions aren’t the easiest to follow as hardly any of the pieces are labelled like I’ve had with flat pack furniture from other places. That being said, I think it’s a truly lovely looking set of drawers. Looks great in our room and even bigger than I thought with so much room. I’d certainly recommend, just be prepared to invest a few hours in to putting it together. There weren’t any missing parts and the bowing in the middle a few other reviews have mentioned is nowhere to be seen. Great piece of furniture.5
Poor quality, same issue as everyone elseJayneb82We've spent lots of money over the years at Ikea, always been impressed with the quality. We have the hemnes bedsides, 3 drawer chests and wardrobes. The middle of this chest has so badly bowed that it looks awful. It was properly built by my husband and the rest of the furniture is fine but this product is clearly flawed. We are so disappointed as we don't have money to waste on poor quality items.1
Poor qualityLiz1896This chest of drawers looked really nice in store. Once built it has bowed in the middle and the drawers fit wonky. I’ve visited the store to inform staff and wasn’t very impressed to find their was a missing piece of wood that is used to support the middle of the drawers not included in our purchase. But reading other reviews this bowed top seems to be a regular issue. Only received 20% money back which I don’t think is reasonable for a product that clearly has a structural problem.1
Wonky and bowedJulielkDrawers came out wonky the long bar under the lid is bowed.1
Missing partsOlya27Excellent quality and sturdy. Average rating is only given due to the bottom draw front missing in the packaging that we were not able to order online as it has no part number. Disappointing that we have to wait to go into store to get this resolved as opposed to have the missing part sent to us in the post by IKEA.3
Great piece of furniture for priceCPalmWe were worried about ordering ‘stain’, due to wishywashy image/finished seen on Ikea site for our bedroom, so waited until kitchen unit arrived. We were that pleased with the effect we went ahead and ordered and have been equally pleased. Just wish the glass top came in same size.5
Great drawersJeannette WimbledonLove the drawers! Los of storage and look great! Straightforward assembly but took 1 person about 3 hours. Follow the instructions!5
Great drawersHappyjojo88This was a great purchase and fits all out clothes nicely in our bedroom. Quality and look of the product is great.5
ColourSabsarellaCan anyone tell me if the white satin is white or more of a cream colour?4
Beautiful sideboardGGDerryMy only negative about this is the under support leg is weak. My middle of the sideboard has dropped with lack of support. Considering cutting the legs off it.3
Perfect for bedroomSarah wellingIts looks lovely in my bedroom Very stylish !!!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.  Read more

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 centre 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 centre 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 centre 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 centre 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 centre of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the centre of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the centre 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 centre 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 you lack foresight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. 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 seem 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.
