Doesn't Fit IVAR SystemTrennaI've returned & repurchased the IVAR side units several times now and the side pieces of these drawers which hold the sliders are too wide to assemble the way the instructions show. (Or, the Ivar side units are now being made a little smaller). I've been watching IVAR quality go down consistently the past several years but this is absurd. Yes, IKEA, I know I ran return them but I've spent a huge amount of time assembling 9 drawers and running back and forth to your store (after paying a large delivery fee in the first place), so I'd like it to work. Going to have to cut them, I guess. And yes the drawer bottom should be stronger, and it's nuts that the drawer sides are so short, so the drawers hardly hold anything. But the situation I'm in, I don't have a better option.
QuestionJoeyWill these drawers mount inside the IVAR cabinets? I love the IVAR cabinet. Its versatile & adaptable. Thank you
Great!YvetteEasy to put together and very large. I love them.
One is goodTaraI got my drawer set up and it works fine, but I would be nervous to put two drawers on top of each other bc I don't know if they were line up and that would drive me crazy. I'm glad one other review mentioned this. I went with one drawer for my set up and its good. Note: building the IVAR system was the hardest build I've done from Ikea. I think its bc they use pine and it can be warped. I had to jig saw a corner off a shelf to get it to fit. Try to get the straightest sides you can when picking out the supports.
Classic Ivar with a twistStacieWe ended up assembling an IVAR unit to instal in my son's closet. We used the drawers in the bottom so he can access them. We hung a bar across the entire unit for clothes and included shelves at the top for odds and ends that would fit up and into that odd space at the top of closets.
I am really happy with how it turned out. The drawers are easy for a child to open. We ordered the a 11/12 inch drawers not the 22/24 inch ones. His closet was not deep enough. All and all for an entire closet unit we ordered 10 shelves, 6 drawers, 3 sides rungs, and 2 metal cross bar supports. All of them work perfectly.
Great drawerBetsaidaEasy to assemble and custom wheee i want it
Totally changed the vibe of my libraryJeffI love these drawers. They were easy to assemble, and once stained and sealed, match the rest of my ceiling to floor IVAR room. They just make the shelves look classier. They fit nicely, taking up the extra space I had in between each shelf. And they are a boon for storing loose stuff all around the room.
Don't do it!ANTONELLARead the assembly guide before buying this, you'll notice:
1. The drawer bottom is not wood, it's fiberboard.
2. The drawer back is attached with hammered in plastic "screws".
3. The mounting rails are secured to the Ivar side units literally only with two small wooden dowels.
These drawers can't support any kind of actual weight for long. There's no way they can stand up to 10+ years of regular use.
It's also basically impossible to line up the drawer fronts and level / plumb them. So if you have several drawers together, the fronts will be all askew.
Don't buy these! Find a way to use literally any other Ivar component instead.
Not as sturdy as the rest of the Ivar line, just hangs there.DallasI feel like it going to break if I don't very gently close it everytime.
