Things that tend to get cluttered can be placed out of sight while your favorite objects can be showcased behind glass doors. A storage-and-display solution is practical and tells a story about yourself.
Doors both protect and decorate - choose a door that matches well with your home and storage combination.
Glass doors keep your items free from dust but still visible.
The shelves are adjustable so you can customize your storage as needed.
You can choose to use either the soft-closing or push-open function. The push-opener lets you open the doors with just a light push, while the soft-closing hinges makes sure they close silently and softly.
Adjustable hinges allow you to adjust the door horizontally and vertically.
Optimize and organize your BESTÅ storage with boxes and inserts that you like.

Handsome cabinets!MarianneI bought 4 of these cabinets last month for my dining room. They look very nice and the option of glass doors make them look even nicer. There are, however, 2 downsides: first, it was more difficult that it was with past purchases to align the 3 doors on each cabinet. Second, the folded back is less sturdy than in previous cabinets. There appears to have been a drop in the quality of the back. For those 2 reasons I would give the cabinets a 3.0 or 3.5, rather than a higher rating.3
Engineering issuesVerified BuyerPurchased this unit at a store in January, 2019. While the unit looks nice it has issues. When assembled with the soft close hinges on the outside of the unit(as it should be) there is no easy way to open the bottom two doors since they are all flush, and have to be opened from the middle. The only way is to open the top door to get access to the door below. Called Ikea to see if I was missing something, they suggested I also use to push open latch, but once you do that the door won't soft close unless you push in the push/open latch before you close the door. Kind of defeats the purpose of a soft close hinge. I would rate the assembly moderate, especially since one set of hinges was defective. When I called to see if I could get a replacement hinge mailed they could not ship one since I purchased the unit at the store, stating I would have to get it replaced at the store (50 miles away). What ever happened to customer service?2
Worst Ikea purchase for difficulty of assemblyVerified BuyerWhile the finished piece fits my needs, the process of putting it together was the worst I've had with any piece of Ikea furniture. The hinges simply would not screw tightly in place, and the force needed to turn the screws to secure them threatened to strip the screws. What should have taken an hour took more than two and left one hinge still not quite flush with the side. Lastly, the wall projections at the top rear were clearly designed to be secured by a screw from the interior, but said screw did not engage with the extension. I don't think this is a hazard, as the plastic parts are secure enough to fulfill their purpose and wall anchors provide needed anti-tip protection.3
Great designVerified BuyerIt was easy to put together and looks sharp in my kitchen. I'm very happy I got it.4
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.
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 yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard 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.
