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.

You can choose to place the cabinet on the floor or mount it on the wall to free up floor space.

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

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

As always, the instructions areMonicaAs always, the instructions are so difficult to understand. Parts should be marked if the instructions do not want to have any words. All IKEA products are nearly impossible to put together and if put together incorrectly it is impossible to undo without breaking the plastic pieces. Not sure why I keep buying from IKEA. Once put together it did look nice and served by purpose.2
Great For OrganizingSueLove the Ekets! Easy to put together. Just wish it was easier to have them shipped for a reasonable price. Pick up is great if you don't live 3 hours away.5
Love these! Using in mySueLove these! Using in my craft room and they are working great.5
Perfect for snacks.ASHLEYHave a TV room and like to keep some waters and sealed snacks, keeps them out of the way but easily accessible. Door is super easy to use and adjust.5
impossible to assemblechiayu c.those who said theirs are fine, I believe they are lucky to have the accurate products. I follow the instruction precisely and it still doesn't fit even with the help of the hammer. Never had any issue assmebly any idea products, I put the queen storage bed all together on my own with no prior familiarity with the electronic screw drivers and all, even that is simpler than this.1
perfect sizeBARBARAYour stock was running low on what I really wanted so I settled for this and it does work perfectly. I wanted black. I have a couple of others that I really love.5
Missing parts, impossible assembly, at least it looks nice.Alexandria I.I drove two hours to Ikea to purchase the in-stock (according to app) Eket system. Upon arriving, checking the app for the location, I only found this one gray cabinet with door. I reluctantly bought this piece after learning the rest of the Eket system was out of stock....The particle board is sturdier than I expected, but proved the assembly to be impossible. Three of my "snap in" holes were not properly drilled, so I needed to carefully carve them and use a rubber mallet to make-do. All of that to discover the insert piece for the door (the one mechanism that allows the door to open and close... the whole point of the product... the one piece that renders the product useful to it's purpose) was missing, along with the wall-mounting materials. Do I go through the trouble of disassembling the product and drive all the way back to return it? Or do I drive back for the missing parts in the chance they're out of stock? I had such high hopes... but now I'm disappointed and discouraged.3
DisappointedZoe M.This product is the worst IKEA item i’ve ever gotten. Spent hours trying to put this together only to find out the panels were put on backwards and broke 2 panels trying to disassemble. Instructions are unclear and panels are very difficult to put together. It’s very cute so I am disappointed it didn’t work out.1
Versatile storageDINAInitially bought two to stack on top of each other and use as a nightstand on either side of the bed. We needed a tall sleek cabinet next to the bed with a lot of storage and small footprint and this fit the bill. But when we assembled it, it looked a little too storagey/officey. Because these are so versatile, I knew I could mount to the wall or combine for modular storage. I ended up buying another one and making a 5-piece cabinet for the entryway where I keep masks, purses, slippers, scarves and there is now a place to empty pockets.5
Nice cabinet, limited colors in storeMILADYI like everything about the cabinet but the color. However, I needed something quickly and I didn't want to pay for shipping too.4
The most difficult box I’ve ever assembledSuzana P.The little pre drilled white things don’t fit into the pre drilled holes, it’s insanely difficult to make them fit. You have to bang every side up against the ground and with a hammer or you can’t assemble it. Looked like crap at the end and spent hours being frustrated. All four units I bought were like this, they’re all faulty. Do not buy.1
Simple and practical.AnonymousLove Eket system.5
Would purchase againTanjanekaI bought this from the as is section so bonus points for it already being put together. I use this to store my dog’s treats. I wish I had bought the other one in the as is section as well. Great little storage cubes5
It's ok. Parts weren't labeledAlexIt's ok. Parts weren't labeled clearly which caused some confusion during assembly.3
I use these fir craftKarenI use these fir craft supplies storage5
very difficult to assemblenancy1305I have assembled lots of furniture in the past and found these cubes very difficult--the dowels didn't fit the pre-drilled holes and when I pounded it together, I damaged the cubes. I assembled 3 cubes and each one was exactly the same.2
Not bad!jonasdThe Eket series looks amazing. Not sure why people complain abut the assembly. The snap-on feature is great and fairly easy to put together.5
Easy Assembly but Door Won't LatchPhilly JasperEasy to assemble, our white Eket cube cabinet has been hung low on the wall to replace a small table that held our fruit. It looks awkward without any legs, but it should do the job of keeping onions, potatoes, & some fruit organized. The only problem: The cabinet door will not latch. It just stays open. So, we'll have to troubleshoot that by maybe getting a magnet or something... Disappointed in this poor functionality.2
Great productAl6222We have bought 6 of these and keep going back for more.5

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 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.
