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
Love love love eket!BeccaWhen we redid our daughters’ room we needed to replace their Kallax bookshelf with something only slightly narrower. I was pleasantly surprised to find that although the eket is smaller, it holds way more books! This would be because the inner and outer walls are thinner. The eket takes some more muscle to put together than kallax but you can get more functionality from the eket. Plus we liked that they have backs so our kids don’t lose things in the abyss behind the unit. Also included are the stand-off posts so it can be flush against your floor trim and the wall! My new favorite go-to piece!5
Good looking designCarlitosntIts versatility and selection of colors is a game changer. It's good I could customize my layout to my wish.5
Assembly is nightmare!!!sunshine247I appreciate the concept that tried to eliminate the amount of bolts and nuts for assembly, however, the pieces are not easy to fit together even by following the instruction exactly. Assembly requires a lot of brute force to fit panels together. Very frustrating. After trying to assemble pieces using my own weight and other non-conventional means, I broke two bookcases and I now wish IKEA covered for emotional damage and wasted time.1
2 together - with legs- make a great, stylish lookDr OThe new leg choices for EKET cabinets give them a leg up over KALLEX. The 4 cubby cabinets are otherwise very similar although EKET has a back. Th choice of one piece wood look base and legs or the individual silver legs allow for a more polished furniture look. The legs are inexpensive and very easy to attach. The white oak finish of EKET is an especially nice choice as it is a move away from the typical IKEA white of much of their furniture. What is still missing is a wide choice of cubby boxes. The KALLEX cubby boxes DO NOT fit!5
NOT take Kallix insertsAmv2I bought this yesterday; the tabs on the first piece were all 3 broken off. Then it would not accept my Kallix drawer inserts. Kallix no longer comes in Birch & i am trying to match.2
Difficult assembly.dontbuyeketI've put IKEA furniture together for years. This piece, as others have commented, is a pain to put together. I followed instructions exactly. The last board cannot slide into place because the back piece needing to be in the slot cannot fit until after it's together, which makes no sense. Waste of money as the piece is damaged trying to get it put together. Buy the allen wrench, screwed pieces.2
Difficult to assemble, cheap materialBZ1990We are so disappointed with this shelf. We have purchased many other pieces from Ikea that appeared more difficult to assemble, but this shelf was by far the worst. We thought it would be a piece of cake but boy were we wrong. The pieces simply would not go together correctly, and the wood chipped away in places. We followed the directions and took our time, I swear our pieces had to be flawed. If our IKEA store wasn’t so far away, we would have definitely returned it. However, it is over an hour drive. Sadly we went to IKEA for this shelf (and lunch in the food court!) only. What a wasted day. The shelf was intended for organizing my daughter’s closet. We ended up assembling it without the back ( it was the only way we could get the pieces to fit together.). It is chipped in places which disappoints me. I felt it was a little pricey for IKEA to begin with, but the dimensions were spot on for our needs. I am very disappointed with how it all turned out though. I like IKEA shelves and storage just NOT this piece.1
Different assembly methodLILinnFor us experienced Ikea furniture assemblers, this was a bit of a challenge. We showed the instructions to a furniture assembly-guy who happened to be there, and he found them unclear.3
QualityMCP2011I'd rather spend more money and get one is more better made material. One of the few bad products I've ever gotten from Ikea. Quality was just, simply okay!! Not real happy about it.2
LovelyHikermel68I love the color! It was pretty easy to put together too.5
Great look and easy roomKMjwI bought it and return it because it missing piece or broken. I bought it same one again. look everything in one places. look good.5
If taking more than 10 min, you"re doing it wrongMarkEllayAnd, I say that out of experience. By the last one, I was able to get the frame put together in under 5 minutes. Like others have noted, the directions have to be followed exactly. 1) Connect the top (#1) with one of the sides, 2) construct the T and snap it in place, 3) add the other side, 4) slide in the backing, and 5) insert the bottom (which has connectors like #1). After it's put together, secure everything in place with fasteners. No chips, broken pieces, or agony. I, too, was guilty of user error. The first one took way too long and with too much effort. I felt pretty silly when I was able to put together the last one so quickly. It really is all outlined in the pictures.5
Assembles tight and sturdyBoilerplater 161I spent a lot of time looking for the right bookshelf, but eventually accepted that I just needed something basic. They did a good job of hiding the hardware with this .it looks pretty good, even though the surface isn't real wood or veneer. It is a lind of contact paper with wood grain printed on it. I have it entirely filled with heavy books now, and the weight does not appear to be too much. Assembly took a little more force than the typical IKEA piece, to get the corners to snap into place.4
Pressure system is troublesomeNoone123This is the first IKEA furniture I had so much trouble putting together. The joints did not lineup correctly, I bought 2 and one of them the backboard was not correctly sized and I had to sand down to make it fit. I won't ever buy this item again, or anything with the same construction system.1
Nice lookingambermacIt was a bit tough to put together by myself, but I managed. One part didn’t 100% slide into place, but once all set up, it’s hardly noticeable.4
Simple, sturdy shelvesacfilThis shelving unit is perfect! I got it in Golden Brown which was a lovely pop of color for my space. Please don't listen to other reviewers saying this is hard to put together. If you have a rubber mallet, this goes together in a breeze. The fasteners are already in the wood, you just follow the instructions, place the correct pieces together and gently tap them until they are flush. The back is also easy to slide in. Couldn't be simpler. And the result is a nice, functional and sturdy shelf.5
easy peasyKatieLessingEasy to assemble. With the base, it becomes perfect size of storage unit for kid's room.5
Good cabinet - off box size - hard to find cubesorganized momI have two of these in my daughter's nursery. I assumed I'd be able to find matching fabric bins at Ikea - but they have almost no options. After searching at 3 other large retailers, I have pretty much given up. The strange size of the cubby makes it difficult to find anything that will work with it. Wish I had bought something else. If you plan to have open store - great! Just don't buy this and plan to find bins for it.4
Perfection / something oddJan12345After having built Eket with drawers / push doors / cubes and having no crafty skills whatsoever I thought it was time to write this review to assure anyone reading the negative reviews that there is something odd going on. If you follow the instructions then this is without a doubt one of the best IKEA building experiences I have ever had. It is so simple and fast that I wonder why I ever put up with Kallax, Pax and Billy. Even the wall mounting and tip over solution is light years better than it used to be at IKEA. Thank you for this wonderful product that is so versatile and flexible.5

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!”.
