GruelingMargarita M.I’ll start off by saying that the end product is beautiful and sturdy. However, my hands and fingers paid the price. I have built several ikea products (by myself) in the past, including three products in the Hemnes series, and none have been as tedious as this one. The first step took so long to complete and at times it felt impossible! The holes were so much narrower than the screws that I had to use so much force to turn them to get them into the wood. I came very close to giving up because my hands started hurting so much, but I just pushed through. Things got much easier after the first step. I do recommend this product, but be advised that the first step is sooo physically demanding on your hands, you may want OR NEED to quit.4
Hemnes tall shelfElizabethReally nice. Went together very easily. We are using it in the condo lobby to hold packages until they are picked up by residents. Our lobby looks neat again with packages on the shelves instead of the floor.5
Good productEUGENEGood product5
Finish Paint is solid whiteMark B.I like the build quality of the shelf and the fact that two of the shelves have adjustable heights.5
PerfectMARYThis is exactly what I needed for our laundry room after getting a stackable washer/dryer. There is plenty of room for laundry soap and baskets for other items.5
Good Storage for Small SpaceANDIThis piece fits perfectly in the corner of my bathroom and provides a lot of storage space with its many shelves. Getting started on assembly was a little tricky as many of the smaller slats are the same size, but once I got rolling it went smoothly.4
Nice lookingJimClean, white lines and ideal for open storage where a bit of style is wanted too. Pretty solid when it all comes together.5
Cute but irritatingMarySo this piece looks really nice when it is all together but I definitely had a couple.of the metal hardware pieces break and no matter what I do it is not perfectly level but it does what I want it to and will work3
A perfect cabinetELIZABETHNeeding to add storage space to my kitchen for essential items used daily. I found this gorgeous cabinet while walking the aisles in IKEA. It fits right in and solves the issue of finding items in a second. I added Fruktskal, a bamboo tray, to one of the shelves and Snudds, a circular tray, to another. They just fit perfectly!5

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 fiberboard?
Fiberboard is a stable and durable material made of leftover wood from the wood industry. A durable outer layer of paint or laminate is added to the board. The difference between various types of fiberboards, such as HDF and MDF, is mainly the thickness, yet also how impact-resistant they are – and this determines what we use them for. So regardless if it’s a bed, a wardrobe or your new bathroom cabinet, the leftover wooden fiber becomes a resource instead of going to waste.
