Perfect size for storing vinylsJudithI bought this specifically for the purpose of storing our records since our collection had outgrown the little shelf we were using. The shelfs are perfectly sized for this. I'd had my eye on another, similar shelf from a different home goods store, but it was much more expensive so I was excited to get a better deal. That being said, I've bought plenty of IKEA pieces in the past and know that sturdiness is not a strong suit and instructions are somewhat lacking in specificity. With that in mind, I tried to be as gentle as possible when putting the shelf together. However, after some confusion with the instructions where I had to separate pieces I'd put together, I ended up with a couple of small cracks and bumps. Luckily it was tucked in the back and I was able to remedy with duct tape and white paint so you can't really tell. Overall, I'm happy with it but know I'll probably end up replacing it with a sturdier piece sometime down the road.4
Great for booksLisaWe love this shelf in our son's room for his books. It looks great, especially with the wood legs on the bottom. It's a little unsteady on the carpet but we anchored it to the wall so there's no chance of it tipping over.5

FrustratedSALLYI have assembled ikea furniture for years, including a kitchen. This piece baffled me. None of it fit together , then the particle board fasteners broke off, rendering it useless. I gave up and will return it. First time I’ve ever returned a partially assembled piece of furniture.1
NiceLINUSJust what I needed for storage space Easy to put together Sturdy enough for stacking5
EketTabitha C.These are really just so cute! Pretty easy to put together(read the directions). I just they couldn’t keep them in stock so I can get a couple more for our playroom!5

simple designSANDYI like it. Looks good and easy to put together.4
perfect for holding recordsEmilyThis shelving unit is perfect for my space, it’s like the popular Kallax but not as much depth. It fits vinyl records perfectly and it was super easy to build. Highly recommend5
Supper easy to assembleEDWARDThis was so easy to assemble. I use it as a night stand next to my guest bed. I can display things below while having a clock and light on the top.5
GarbageDavidPlastic dowels snapped while assembling.1
EKET AMAZING ENGINEERINGRobertEKET AMAZING ENGINEERING. As we assembled these cubes, I kept saying the engineering is amazing. Such an improvement over past experiences from 15 years ago. High quality. Looks great. Very functional.5
This is a solid effectiveJohnThis is a solid effective piece of furniture - I use it as storage and as a step-system for my older cats trying to reach a window - the brackets and optional feet are a nice plus. The surfaces are very smooth, but so far none have slipped off the others. Best assembled with a rubber mallet.4
Great ProductAmericaLove it!5
Attractive storageKariThanks to previous reviewers, I knew that I'd need to use a rubber mallet to assemble. With that tool, I had this put together and in use in about 20 minutes. Without a mallet, I'm not sure how I would have managed.5
Pretty sturdySTEVENI put a mini clothes dryer on to. Despite the unbalanced (at times) drum spinning on top it there is no rocking or swaying. Oh, and easy to put togeather.5
Love itSHANNLove it5
I absolutely love this cabinet.RebeccaI absolutely love this cabinet. The color is like a nice goldenrod color. For the most part, it was easy to put together. I would recommend a mallet when putting on the 12 two-part inserts on the back as they are not very easy to put in by hand. Also would recommend legs to raise the cabinet off the ground.5
DisappointingLeilaniI love the Kallax line but this one is awful. It doesn’t assemble easily, doesn’t feel strong, doesn’t fit the kallax storage cube accessories. Just disappointing all around2

From grandfather's fishing boxes to playful storage

When product developer Petra Kammari Enarsson was a young student and often moved, she used to furnish her apartments with old fishing boxes given to her by her grandfather who lived on the west coast of Sweden. Years later, when Petra was developing the new EKET storage series, those boxes came to mind. How could she make the series as flexible as the boxes?

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!”.

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.
