Love LoveIrmaWe were originally looking at malm but glad we found the Hemnes. It is very well made, beautiful color. I get so many compliments. Looking for other Hemnes pieces now5
wrong addressdianeThe dresser is as expected--very good quality. However, the dresser was sent to the wrong address. I purchased it as a gift for my daughter and requested it be sent directly to her home. It was delivered to my home. Luckily, we only live one mile away, so we delivered it to her home.4

Hemnes 8 drawer dresserDanielThe dresser is not very sturdy and one of the supports for the drawers was broken.3

Great for a teen or college student dresser!MARGARETEasy to assemble with sturdy drawers.5
Great DresserAllisonThis is a great dresser, especially for the price. Tons of storage, very sturdy, and the instructions on putting together were easy to follow.5
Nice dresserAmanaThis dresser is a little complicated to put together. We have assembled a lot of ikea furniture, but this was just a bit more challenging than most. It took me and my husband about 8 hours to fully assemble. But it is a very nice looking, sturdy dresser. Feels high quality and like it will probably last for years. Very spacious.5
Everything I hoped for.JulieEverything I hoped for.5
Its a very nice dresser.JenniferIts a very nice dresser. It just took to long to put together.4
Lots of assembly, but nice qualityReneeWe had to wait several weeks until this product was available in our local store. Worth the wait. The end product looks good and is heavy duty. Putting the many pieces together was a bit of work, but a labor of love for my daughters 1stapartment.5
Quality has changedDavidThis this the 4th Hemnes large dresser I have purchased and built, all for family. One was 18 months ago and was beautiful. Two were a couple months ago and went together well but the finish was not nice as the first but the drawers fit perfect. The paint finish was rougher than the first and not smooth. The 4th was built this week. These drawers have uneven gaps when closed in the dresser and which is very noticeable since it is a white dresser, and is a first. Also contained some major edge splinters on the drawer sides that I had to work on to avoid potential hand damage in the future and this is a first also. Not sure if these units are made in several different countries for Ikea, and if so, they seem to vary in quality of workmanship and overall finish. Would take it back, but since I spent 6+ hours assembling, I will keep. Still a very nice looking and sturdy dresser and certainly worth the price paid. I reccomend it but with the above observations.3
Favorite dresser!SarahI love this dresser so much that we have three of them! Assembly takes awhile due to the size but pretty easy once the frame is done. One drawer from each dresser comes out a little less smooth then the others but not by much4
HemnesLukeInstuctrions were very long but clear. Well worth it.5
Hemnes 8-drawer dresserAlmaI love this dresser, it’s such an elegant looking piece of furniture - I was surprised and so happy to learn that there was a glass top available for purchase. The dressers material looks and feels pretty solid - no particleboard junk! The one flaw is that the drawers don’t pullout the entire depth, so it’s difficult to see what you have sorted towards the back of the drawers. Actually, one more minor thing, the drawers get stuck/stick so need to wiggle them a bit to close (I think that’s just my fault and did not install the tracks/drawer slides properly). Regardless, no regrets on this purchase.4
Love it! Took 2 peopleTobyeLove it! Took 2 people about 5 hrs to assemble.5

Secure your home from tipping furniture

When your child begins to crawl and climb, the whole home turns into an exciting adventure land. But, since the toddler doesn’t have any risk awareness, the home environment can hold some hazards, for example furniture that can tip over. Sometimes it can be difficult to see the risks at home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.  Read More

Low furniture can tip too

One might think that only high, narrow furniture can tip over – not a low, deep chest of drawers filled with heavy things. But, if several drawers are open, the centre of gravity shifts and the chest of drawers tips over. Unfortunately, both children and adults can be seriously injured, even fatally, if they end up under the weight of a falling chest of drawers. Accidents can also happen because heavy objects on top of a piece of furniture fall down, for example, a TV. The heavier things, the more serious consequences. Experience shows that it’s absolutely safest to secure all furniture that risk tipping over to a wall.

Remember the laws of physics?

When we develop our furniture, we do everything we can to make them as stable and safe as possible. It affects the choice of materials and the furniture’s construction. But, we haven’t yet figured out how to outsmart the laws of nature. Like the fact that a pulled out drawer works like a lever. Perhaps you remember the principle of leverage from the physics lessons in school? If not, it can be described like this; even a small weight can shift the center of gravity considerably if the weight is applied to a pulled out drawer (or an open door). It means that a small child that stands, sits or climbs on an open drawer can cause a large chest of drawers to tip over if it’s not secured – despite the child’s low weight.

Children and tipping chests of drawers

Children are curious and creative. That’s how they learn new things and discover the world around them. But, it also contributes to children 1-7 years old being more accident-prone. And the smallest ones, 1-4 years old, are most at risk of serious injuries. That’s why a chest of drawers – no matter model or size – can be a hazard if it isn’t secured to the wall. There are examples from all over the world where children have pulled out one or several drawers and climbed on them like a ladder, hung on, heaved up on, or climbed into them. But, by always securing your chest of drawers to the wall you can prevent and minimize the risks for children who explore the world.

Adults and tipping chests of drawers

It isn’t just children who accidentally tip over chests of drawers and risk injuries. Even as adults we sometimes open several drawers at the same time, especially if we’re in a hurry. Another mistake we sometimes make is to put too many or too heavy things in the front of the drawers. In all these cases the center of gravity shifts outside the base of the furniture and they tip over. An uneven floor, a carpet edge or a thick wall-to-wall carpet can also cause instability and tipping accidents.

Common myths and misconceptions

Sometimes it can be hard to discover the potential hazards in your own home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

No matter how logical this might feel, it’s actually wrong. All furniture can tip over. They become unstable if they have open drawers or doors that work as a lever and move the center of gravity. The force that’s generated when furniture tip over can be strong and cause very serious accidents – especially if they’re heavy-loaded.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip too and risk injuring someone. If several drawers are opened at the same time, the center of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the center of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the center of gravity the same way. That’s why you should always follow the assembly instructions that show how to secure your furniture to the wall.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

As a parent, it’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Unfortunately, many accidents happen when you lack foresight. Luckily you have good possibilities to minimize the risks if you secure chests of drawers and other furniture to the wall – even in rooms where the children don’t spend much time.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. But, latching drawers and doors can’t replace securing the furniture and doesn’t eliminate all risks. A child learning to walk usually likes to heave up against a chest of drawers by pulling a handle, and can thereby make it tip over.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

When children play, they sometimes forget what you have told them. Just because they are older doesn’t mean it’s all safe. In addition, many adults, especially elderly, hurt themselves badly, sometimes fatally, in accidents with furniture that tip over.

I rent my home and can’t drill holes in the wall

Most landlords in most parts of the world think it’s OK if you secure your furniture to create a safe home for your children. But, it’s good to talk to your landlord and perhaps explain what risks there are. Feel free to spread some of the knowledge we are sharing here.

The accident risk seems small, do I have to care?

More people than one might think are injured every year in accidents with tipping furniture. Between 2006 and 2016 approximately 47,000 children under the age of 18 had to seek medical care in the US because of accidents with tipping chests of drawers (source: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nov 2017). Holes in the wall are actually quite simple to fix – there’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.

Secure your chest of drawers, simple and safe

When you buy a chest of drawers from IKEA you should always follow the assembly instructions and secure it with the accompanied fittings. They’re easy to mount, and screws and plugs are included. Just fill the holes with putty when you want to move your chest of drawers, or are moving to another home.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

All furniture can tip over, especially if the drawers are opened and the center of gravity shifts.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip over too, so always follow the assembly instructions.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

It’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Many accidents happen when they're out of sight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s good. But, it doesn’t replace securing the furniture to the wall.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

But, they easily forget. It isn’t all safe just because they are older.

My chest of drawers is stable and from a well-known furniture company

Even the seemingly most stable piece of furniture can tip over.

The risk of accidents seems small, do I have to care?

People are injured in these kinds of accidents every year. There’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.
