Product details

A simple unit can be enough storage for a limited space or the foundation for a larger storage solution if your needs change.

You can create your own unique solution by freely combining cabinets of different sizes, with or without doors and drawers.

The door has an integrated push-opener so you can open it with just a light push.

2 adjustable shelves; adjust spacing according to your needs.

Assembly is quick and easy, thanks to the wedge dowel that clicks into the pre-drilled holes.

Product was as described andAnnProduct was as described and high quality. Very easy to assemble5
Simple and sleekHeatherI purchased this for a narrow entryway to my business. I installed feet on it to give it a more expensive feel. It's convenient for contact free pickups without being massive and taking up a large chunk of space. Very easy to put together as well.5
An ideal small storage cabinetRomeEasy to assemble w/ nice clean aesthetics. The gray is a very attractive color and happened to match surrounding features in my living room. 4 star quality as 1 push opener is sticking slightly (but still works.) I’ll try to get a new opener at Ikea.5
Small and sturdy but expensiveSundeepSmall and sturdy, but expensive for the size and installation instructions are a little off from easy3
the new "tool-less" assembly is a great idea but not forgivingDavidReally liked the look of the product so bought it. Assembly was a little awkward since the pictures lacked some detail to tell exactly which direction certain pieces needed to be assemble. Plastic assembly pegs are now used vs. screws and when I realized a side was backwards, there was no way to "un-attach" the part and the plastic pegs snapped rendering the entire cabinet unable to be assembled. The error was mine, but the inability to recover was the error of design.3
coolRAFAELeasy, was at as is section and fit with my needs and got it5
Perfect!RUSSELLPerfect For What I Needed!5
Perfect small space storageDeniseThe cabinet is the perfect size for our small hall and looks very nice for the price. Great storage for its size. Assembly, however, was a challenge. The doors do not fit together properly - there is an uneven gap between the doors when they are closed. The floor model had this same gap and I just assumed it was hastily put together for display but ours looks just like the floor display, so it might be a design/production quirk of this cabinet model. Still, we’re pleased with the functionality and look of the cabinet overall so we can live with the door gap.4
Great features!YigoExactly what I was looking for and I’m so happy to got this!5
Just what I needed!SkwirlThis was bought to replace a cabinet that broke after years of use and it's exactly what we needed to declutter the bathroom. Easy to assemble, easy to hang. My only quibble is it doesn't clearly mention needing a special bracket to hang it on the wall, but that was taken care of with a second trip.5
Perfect size cabinet.Sparky06This is a perfect cabinet for the entrance of the house to place shoes, shopping bags, hats, or whatever you like to have handy when you leave home. It was very easy to put together and is sturdy. It is good value for the money.5
Great ShelfMagofaLooks great, easy to put together; bought in combination with other Eket units5
Perfect size for above the toilet storageNTimmI bought this in the AS IS section and found nothing wrong, was perfect size and price!5
Simple design, easy assemblyHodgeATXThe eket series are a versatile storage system that is affordable and easy to assemble. The only thing to note is that the cabinet cannot be free standing in a room since some of the hardware is exposed on the back.5
Follow directions:~}Follow directionsBought 3 cabs a few months ago. Putting together first one was easy. Second, not so easy. Reread directions. Easy! Use them in a guest bathroom. Love them. Clean lines. Sturdy. Great price.5
Nice design.dharma19Bought this a month ago, one of the doors will not stay closed. Not happy with it. I would rather try & repair this feature than return. If I can fix the door, which may be an easy repair, it will be perfect.3
run the other wayyayaimai have been buying furniture from ikea for years. i have put together all of it, including complicated pieces. this is the worst thing ikea has ever made. the holes did not line up and there was no way i could install the doors. i had to return the pieces. a pity, bcs they are nice and the right size for what i needed them.1
Works very well in my garage.Ginny GirlGreat storage in garage for car washing products.5
Helpful hints?singprettyJust in case it's helpful to anyone, I wanted to share: - Assembly: Starting with the piece labeled 1 is essential! - Leveling: One of the final steps is to push back the tabs on the plastic pieces that hold the doors. This is not made clear, but the position of the tabs controls the angle of the doors. I leveled my crooked doors by adjusting two of the tabs so they were only pushed halfway back. I then used little screws to secure the tabs in that position (I think that's why the tabs have holes). - Opener: I agree that the push-to-open mechanism is not great. There's a trick to it, and it's noisy. I decided to add some cute handles to the doors, and saw off the plastic piece that does the pushing. (You can't discard the mechanism entirely because you need the magnet to hold the doors closed.) Another fix would be to order IKEA's better push opener: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80230224/ Overall, I like the slick look of these! They assemble quickly and with little hardware, and mount securely. Contrasted with the SEKTION wall cabinet, they are more petite, and because there are just 3 possible positions for the shelf, there are fewer peg holes to look at, which I prefer. IKEA goofed on the push opener, but truthfully if we weren't opening the doors every 5 seconds, I could have lived that, too!4
Works for meEkkeDespite the other reviews warning of issues.... I bought and am happy. Very easy to assemble if you follow instructions carefully and lay it out before connecting. The door magnets are not the best ( sometimes takes two pushes to close) but it really isn’t bothersome. Looks best with the wooden feet! I like it so much I may buy another or at least some of the smaller accessory boxes.4

Our take on wood

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.

New technologies, new hobbies, a new family member ... both small and large changes affect life and people's needs at home, especially when it comes to all the things that we need space for. Petra Kammari Enarsson is a product developer at IKEA and often visits the homes of customers to experience their everyday living and how good storage can make life at home a little easier. She remembers a family in Copenhagen which expanded every other weekend with the daughter from a previous relationship. ”She didn't have her own room, but the family had a solution where she had a loft bed in the living room and her private things were in a chest on the floor”. Petra thinks it's a good example of how more and more people are living in small spaces, and that a large part of everyday living takes places in the living room where we want things to be both practical and stylish.

Flexible furniture for new needs

Another obvious trend around the world is that many people move more often - just as Petra did when she was young. ”The problem is that a lot of storage furniture is so inflexible – upon moving or new needs arising, they can't be adapted. This means storage isn't optimal and it's difficult to keep track of all your things”. These insights inspired Petra and her colleagues to start looking at a more flexible and personal storage solution – something that can easily be updated so that people don't have to buy new furniture as soon as something in life changes. Petra then started to think about those fishing boxes she had when she was young and which were so easy to stack and move as needed. What if you could make a piece of furniture which consists of various smart modules that can be easily moved around, removed and added to?

Building with blocks

Petra and her team started by ordering cardboard boxes in various sizes. They took the boxes to different room environments where they moved them around like building blocks – stacking and combining them in various ways. The team also researched detailed facts about storage: on average, how many magazines do we have at home? What’s the ideal height for people to put down their mobile phones? ”Many of us put keys, telephones or bags in a specific place when we come home. We usually do it automatically, without thinking about it”, says Petra. The height that seems to suit most people is 31½", so a shelf at that height was a given in the mix of shelves, drawers and cabinets in different colors and styles that eventually became the EKET storage series. ”I'm so pleased that we chose to prioritize playfulness and freedom of choice with all the colors and sizes of EKET”, says Petra, who's looking forward to visiting more homes. ”I think that the customers will find lots of exciting combinations that we haven't even thought of!”.

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 and resource-efficient, 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.
