Good product but came with bugs!DrSusan72I love IKEA but my shelving units arrived in cardboard boxes that were infested with tiny bugs that have spread through my house and will require an exterminator! We did not realize they were in the packaging until it was in our home for an hour and by then it was too late. Ikea has no way of contacting them about any issues, let alone this! Very disappointed.1
Love, love love!Christine2020Bought these to create built-ins. So simple to assemble and after a few modifications, LOVE how they turned out!!5
Perfect Solution!JodiTI knew the Billy bookcases we purchased were ideal for displaying our glass collectibles. We installed puck lights and had our local glass company cut glass shelves (utilizing the clips that came with the wooden shelves provided). We also updated the hardware, as many customers recommended in the reviews. Well the bookcases look amazing and we are going to purchase two additional bookcases. I also recommend you use the Click and Collect feature on Ikea's website. When we arrived at Ikea, all the boxes were on a cart waiting for pickup! We were in and out in less than 10 minutes.5
Great book shelvespamela74Yes, it is three sets that fit together. Easy peazy! I'm about to purchase again. Simple picture instructions but pay attention to image details. Not one flaw or peice of missing hardware. I'm so impressed.5
Red WaveFolks should read the entire description and all reviews, before purchasing. This item comes in 3 boxes, which indicates 3 separate units. 3 units are easier to transport and combine as a single unit, or can be installed as individual units. Remember to anchor to the wall!5
Exactly what I needed!bearandbertsmomMy room called for book cases of this width. I added doors and it worked out perfect. Exactly how I wanted. Not sure why people couldn't tie them together. You just used the included woodscrew and go through one of the shelf holes you weren't using. It worked great. Mine are all aligned perfectly with their doors and look fantastic.5
I like these a lotBjorn SI personally like these shorter shelves (width not height) they allow me to organize my books better and will prevent bowing that some longer shelves can have. I don't know why these got bad reviews, people obviously don't do their research before buying anything or they would see that 1. this is a set of 3 because they also sell them singularly. 2. it says This furniture must be secured to the wall with the enclosed wall anchoring device. so when someone writes that this were upset that they didn't know they needed to be secured they didn't read the initial directions. Anyway these work great for me and I would buy more is I needed more.5
Three Separate bookshelvesJuieThe description of this “bookshelf”’is completely false. It’s actually three towers with no way of attaching them to each other. They’re very tall so unless they get anchored together and to a wall they will fall over easily. I wanted a one piece unit for my store. Not three towers.1
MisleadingSherylThis is actually three narrow bookcases with no way to lash them together. Misleading. Will return.1
