Avoid like the plagueVerified ReviewerHow this product has a 4.5 rating is beyond me. I must've received a faulty item. Steer clear from this product if you get easily frustrated when trying to assemble IKEA furniture. I normally don't have any major issues putting their furniture together but this product is so very poorly designed. Whoever designed this should not only stop designing things, ideally they'd also be prosecuted for coming up with this shelving unit. The holes don't line up as the metal parts are all bent at the ends. I'm not sure that it's physically possible to get all of the screws in. I think most of them are now too worn out for me to successfully assemble this unit. Trash.1
Hyliss shelving unitVerified ReviewerIn my 65 years on this planet, this must rate as one of my worst purchases ever. The unit is flimsy, the screw holes don’t align and the metal components are poorly constructed and warped. Add to the experience one and a half hours circling the car park of the Southampton IKEA whilst my wife purchased the unit. If I had known what I was buying I wouldn’t have paid more than 50 pence.1
Stylish and practicalVerified ReviewerStylish and practical4
Good functional shelvesVerified ReviewerThis is a good lightweight shelving unit for our utility room. It’s a useful platform for parking things.2
Very poor build qualityVerified ReviewerMetal is all twisted and the holes don’t line up. Very difficult to build even with a power screwdriver. End product is also twisted. You would be paying dirt for dirt1
Solid shelvesVerified ReviewerBought these to fit out a new shed, easy to assemble and look like they'll last a long time.5
Shelving unit was bought toVerified ReviewerShelving unit was bought to use in shed, which it is perfect for.5
Does what I neededVerified ReviewerMetal is slightly twisted making it a bit awkward to put together but still went together okay and doesn’t affect use for me. Just means 2 of the feet don’t stay on; doesn’t affect us as the floor it’s on is in a cupboard so didn’t need to plastic feet to protect it.4
Great shelving. Have bought oneVerified ReviewerGreat shelving. Have bought one before so knew what to expect.5
Just the jobVerified ReviewerThis is the 3rd one I've bought. Very handy item for plants etc. I bought this one for the shed.5
I got this for storageVerified ReviewerI got this for storage in a shed. It is not the easiest to build. I started with a normal screwdriver but the holes didn’t line up so it was pretty near impossible. I tried again with a power screwdriver and managed to build it and am happy with it but I would recommend anyone getting this to use a power screwdriver which makes building it a doddle. For the money it cost I am happy with the unit. Not the most attractive but it does the job.5
perfect for my garageVerified ReviewerLove the garage organisation and ease of assembly5
galvanised shelving unitVerified Reviewerpurchased to use as shed storage, it is ideal for the purpose.5
Fantastic price, very sturdy.Verified ReviewerI bought eight of these for use in two storage cupboards. They go together ( if you follow the instructions 😁👍) very easily and once on a level floor they square up. They look really good and are very easy to wipe down once they get dusty, unlike wooden ones. For the price, these are fantastic!5
Great value for money setVerified ReviewerGreat value for money set of shelves.4
Pleasantly surprisedVerified ReviewerWhen I purchased this I didn’t expect that it would be sturdy enough but after having put it together it seems like it is. Quite easy to assemble and didn’t take too long. Good value.5
Small screws are a littleVerified ReviewerSmall screws are a little fiddly3
ShelvesVerified ReviewerGreat shelves for our poly tunnel Ideal for our pots and vegetables plants Well made and sturdy too ! Very happy:0)5

HYLLIS creates room for life on the balcony

Some of us live smaller than we’d like. It often means a constant hunt for more space. So why not try and use the space we have in smarter ways? This was something our product developers wanted to help out with when they created a small version of HYLLIS – a shelf that fits almost anywhere – and can be used if you want to grow your own herbs and small plants.

Philip Dilé, one of the members in the development team behind HYLLIS, live in an apartment with balcony in southern Sweden. “My balcony is filled with stuff. I’d like to use it for something other than storage, and I think many of our customers feel the same way.”

Cover from the elements

To shield our balconies from weather, wind and exhaust fumes, it usually isn’t enough with the protection from the neighbour above. That’s why the team decided to create a cover for HYLLIS. They made it transparent and added ventilation holes. It makes it possible to use the cover and the shelf as a greenhouse.

Become a balcony farmer

“I grow herbs myself. It saves money and it’s fun to see life sprout on your own balcony. I think people who live in cities should be able to grow small plants and herbs too, even if they don’t have access to a garden,” says Philip. With HYLLIS shelf and cover they can do it in a small scale and use the balcony for more things than storing – a greener life and a smarter use of space at home.


What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
