Pretty much the whole leftMichellePretty much the whole left side ripped out of the pegs when I stood it up.1
So cute!MamaXiongBought this a few weeks ago for our nursery to double as a changing station. I love the neutral color and 9 small drawers for easy organization. the drawers also have a stay open function which is super useful. Just need to install childproofing when baby gets older.5
NiceTinarnTook a while to put together but wasn’t bad. Just a lot of pieces. Pay attention to direction of door slides. Nice sturdy dresser.4
Beautiful But Nightmare BuildVenuti89Unfortunately and fortunately, I see we are far from the only ones with the same issues so it’s clearly a problem. It’s not even about how long it takes to put together, it’s about how legitimately complicated it is, even checking and double-checking every little instruction. Bottom line, it’s a beautiful dresser but if you buy it, be ready to spend (and possibly waste) over half a day putting it together.2
ConnieplantsExceptional piece of useful furniture5
Literally throwing money away, LiterallyAlexd23112I bought a variety of dresser on one trip, came home to assemble this one, it’s not marked well AT ALL. Entire thing broke in half while trying assemble, never even got to he point of assembling the drawers. Now my clothes sit in a pile on the floor and I lost my money. Beyond disappointed.1
First total IKEA failureAnnwelderI purchased this dresser a week ago. I have been assembling IKEA furniture for 20 years and always marveled at the engineering and wordless instructions. These instructions were BAD. The hardware (139615) that the cams (194531 and 113434) tighten onto are either too short at the screw end or the particle board into which it screws is poor. The screws rip out when manipulating the frame to attach other portions. Because the frame is flimsy when attaching the bottom and top, manipulation of the inner frame causes everything to fall apart and tear the outer skin. Very poor process for assembly. Quality control?1
typical, but with a little metalbtdoughtyWe opted for different knobs and it makes a nice entryway cabinet.5
Nightmare AssemblySmannThe instructions are your typical IKEA instructions, which don’t normally lead to problems. However, in this case, half way through when we put together the middle section it completely fell apart when we attached it to the base. We ended up taking it apart and following our own instincts and putting it together in pieces. For the price we paid, we were not about to throw it away. But I am very disappointed in IKEA on this one.1
NightmareFabulous1234We are usually big fans of ikea and have bought quite a few pieces of furniture. It’s the first time that we have one collapsing on us. At step 33, the whole thing ripped apart as the screw and wood sticks cannot support the weight of the furniture!! Unbelievable, the whole thing is good for the trash. Afterwards, I read the reviews only to realize other people got exactly the same issue!! Wish I had read them before I bought it!! Do not buy!1
moniquedawndrawers are very cheaply made - a mess1
Sharp looking chestBubbl3headBought to replace an older dresser, this piece offers plenty of storage in a sharp professional package.4
Pay attention to detailsUnewillowMy husband and I bought this dresser to use in our nursery. We breezed through the assembly (not our first Ikea rodeo) until we went to put the drawers in and realized we had put the whole middle bit in upside-down. So it took us an extra half hour or so to carefully take it apart and flip, and put back together. If you are purchasing this piece pay careful attention during building to which direction your drawer slides are facing!! Overall we love how it looks and hope it will stand up to years of (ab)use.4
Excellent piece of furniturecg918Bought this a month ago, took awhile to assemble but the pay off is well worth it. Its sturdy and holds all of my items. My room is fairly small and this dresser's dimensions worked better than most. The color is perfect and was exactly the style I am going for.5
hardest thing I have ever put togethertbillI love this furniture piece but it was the worst thing I have ever put together by IKEA. it fell apart multiple times while I was building it ruining the dowels and screws. The material is so weak that it wouldn't even hold together during building.3
Terrible productMish40This dresser is a nightmare to put together and the product itself is very flimsy. We are extremely disappointed in this product as it was very expensive to purchase and will be absolutely useless to us. I can't even imagine trying to take it apart, box it and return it. Buyer beware!1
NIGHTMAREschmitts88First, I'd like to say that I normally am a HUGE fan of Ikea furniture; I love the styles and quality and I find it fun to build... This piece though, has been nothing but a headache: The quality is sub-par and constructing it has been absolutely miserable. There is no easy way to put this together and once I did start making headway, the screw and lock bits pulled out of the one side, I tried reattaching and once I went to attach the base they pulled right out again. I had to throw the brand new piece away because it simply wasn't salvageable any longer. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Save yourself the time and money and choose a different dresser.1
Nice dresserKaraMSWe recently purchased this dresser for our daughter’s nursery and are very happy with it. I can’t comment on putting the dresser together as someone else did it for us, but he had it put together within 1.5 hours and said overall it was pretty easy. It’s very sturdy, spacious but yet fits into our very small nursery nicely. The drawer pulls are a bit tiny for the size of the dresser so I bought larger different ones that look much better. would definitely recommend.5
Drawers could be betterJCIkea11Drawers are easy to put together which is good since there are nine of them. But the sides and back of the drawers are metal and not nearly as high as the drawer face so contents may fall out and down the back. So, a bit disappointed since it doesn’t maximize storage space. I didn’t notice this in the showroom. Plus, I thought is was a bit pricey at $269, especially when I compare it it to the Hemnes dressers which are solid wood. This is particle board.3

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.

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 center 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 center 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 center 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 center of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the center of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the center 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 center 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 they're out of sight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s good. 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 seems 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.
