Decent.ChrisIt’s a plain Jane door. The installation was pretty easy once you know which hole to use for the hinges. I think it’s the 4th hole. One of the installation instructions briefly tells you where to start your door hinge. Install the hinges on the door. Then have someone hold the door when you screw in the hinges. Installation is so much smoother this way.
The gray laminate they use looks really cheap and you can see the seem inside. Almost looks like contact paper.
Other than that it hides everything inside my pax.4
Scratches when I opened the boxKristieUnfortunately the door was scratched when I opened the box and it even if it wasn't it looks really cheap. It reminds me of the cheap Walmart cabinets and not the price that I actually paid for the set. Live and learn.1
What I expectedRockyI have put together many IKEA pieces. No surprises with this one. Instructions straight forward .5
Simple and clean lookTamiThese doors are perfect if you like a clean and simple look. Because of the minimalist look they can be used with almost any design style. They are also economical so it’s a win, win!5

Clean and simpleLoriAlthough it is a little difficult to screw in tight and straight, and you have to CAREFULLY and precisely measure to install your own knobs, the clean simple look of these doors is what I like best about them... and they are also the cheapest.4
Door knob not centered verticallyChrisWhen you drill the hole for the door knob/pull, you better be very sure which end of the door is up. One door gets flipped over to turn a right into a left. Measure your hole location up from the bottom edge for both, or better yet drill them after mounting the door to the cabinet. Otherwise your knobs will not line up with each other. Otherwise it is typical low-end Ikea - pressboard and vinyl that look pretty good when new.3

For sand doorsBarbaraDoors were easy to assemble. Bought 10 of them for all our closets5
Great cheap doorAllisonIf you look at all the sample doors, you'll notice that they are EXPENSIVE!! Not saying that the prices are unfair, but we didn't care about look as much because we bought a PAX wardrobe for extra basement storage. These Forsand doors were way cheaper than other doors and they're just fine. I bought some fancy knobs from Anthropologie on sale and I'll install them myself to make the whole wardrobe look fancier. Get these doors and save yourself $200 you can spend on something else!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.
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.
