Family LibraryJeniThe Billy shelves we purchased make our family library so lovely!5
Love these for my home office!BrendaThey look great against my dark blue walls.5
I love IKEA"S Billy bookshelves!KaylynI love IKEA'S Billy bookshelves! They make great individual pieces or they can come together for a stunning installation.5
Don"t get the extra tall oneDaveI purchased the extra tall bookcase thinking it was all one long shelf when in reality it's the normal bookshelf with 4 baords for an extension. It cost $25 for 4 boards.... that's half the cost of the entire shelf2
BookcaseDouglasThe product is wonderful, it is worth the extra cost to get the natural finish. It was easy to put up and it looks great in the kid's playroom. Ikea however has been a thorn. I had wanted to talk to someone about purchasing the product or picking it up at the store, but it was impossible to get in touch with someone. I had gone into the store and that will likely never happen again. The help in the store obviously did not want to deal with me asking questions. I had purchased a few other items and was sent in the warehouse to fethc5
WonderfulMelissaJust what I needed!5

Great ProductHalEasy to assemble. Well made. Great value5
Big!PaulMake sure your car is big enough. BARELY fit in our SUV. Good thing these are the normal shelves plus an extension for the top shelf or they would have never fit. Still looks good though.5
Purchased Billy many times over the years!staceyI have purchased Billy bookcases multiple times....... in my baby’s rooms, my office, my pantry, as linen closets, in my master bathroom, as a built in headboard for my daughter, and in my laundry room over the past 30 years of marriage. It’s the most versatile piece I’ve ever purchased!!5
Same Billy, better priceBrendanPicked up a couple Billys and they are just the same as they were years ago, except for the cheap plastic cam locks. I figured out what to do to keep them from breaking, but that was not needed for this particular unit. (Put in the cam lock first and dry fit the post. Lock the cam and observe if the post base is pulled into the cam hole too far. This would mean you will have to back the post out of the board when screwing it in, or the cam lock will break when locking to the post.)5
Great!plala23We love this! We are thinking of putting in several in our new home, but just got one to test. I was able to assemble the basic case in just over an hour - that included going downstairs a few times to get a better tool. In other words, it went together quickly and easily (but then I think I speak IKEA.) I also added the extension so that the unit reached to our high ceilings. Easy. We are thrilled with the finished product and plan to go back for more.5
MariaJax04Sturdy and easy to anchor.5
Solid piece of furnitureSwedeOskarWe bought this as a DVD shelf, so we bought the extender shelf and extra separate shelves to go in it. It is a substantial, well made piece of furniture, well worth the money. The directions are easy to follow, and one person can assemble it.5
Great Bookcase For Built-In DIYRussmanh7I bought two of these bookcases along with the extension to make them just about 8’ tall. Very sturdy and well make. Easy to put together too! Great purchase.5
Love The Billy BookcaseC61894Not only was it easy to put together. There are so many features that are not advertised. My favorite.... there is a groove cut on the bottom to fit over the baseboards. This feature makes the bookshelf looks like it is flush to the wall. We looked at other bookshelves. We compared a few places. Target and Walmart. IKEA’s quality was much better. Very happy with them. Definitely satisfied.5
Horrible!buttercookiecheap, fell apart when assembling, had to return. piece of junk.1
Amazing!ALevyWe purchased billy bookshelves for one of our rooms 9 years ago and they are still holding up great! A month ago, we decided to purchase three more to make the room a complete library and you can't even tell which ones have been 'added' to the room. I would HIGHLY recommend this product! My sister and I put three of them together in less than 2 hours (with children around)!!!5


What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
