Dowels do not fit into shelvesNeil N.I've put together several of the smaller Kallax shelves over the year with no problem. Unfortunately, with this unit the dowels are too large and do not fit in the shelves. I called to complain after ruining a couple of the shelves and dowels, was sent a new one and had the same problem. I had to redrill all the holes so the dowels would fit - very time consuming for what should be an easy assembly. Noticed this complaint in other reviews and should have paid attention.1

Kallax bookcasesMaryannI bought two of these for my basement and they’re just perfect. Great size and ease of assembly. IKEA you’ve done it again!5
KALLAX IS A GREAT ADDITION TO MY STUDIO!DeborahPerfect for books, art supplies, and decorative pieces. It is beautiful in the space and and you can see everything easily. Best of all, it is was priced just right for my budget.5
Perfect sized cubes for modernThomasPerfect sized cubes for modern board game storage. Largest size requires two people to safely assemble. Wasn't too difficult but the instructions don't do a good job of indicating position of the shelves for assembly so I had to rotate everything to have the bracket side of the shelves (the rear side essentially) facing the wall.5
Book shelfMYRIAMIt’s bigger than I thought, but beautiful.5
Great Divide!CharlotteMy three granddaughters share a huge room. The oldest wanted a little more separation from her twin sisters. This was the perfect option! Canvas bins in the lower rows replaced her dresser, and the remaining cubbies hold her books and treasures.5
Love these!CatherineI transformed a spare bedroom into my art/craft studio. I’ve installed all IKEA products including this cube shelving. It not only looks great but keeps all my supplies very organized. I also installed some shelving units and used cubes.5
Nice productJoeI would love to see them add a way to secure them to each other on the sides but over all it looks great.4
Great shelving unitRichardJust as pictured. Only complaint is the hardware at Ike’s has gotten a bit cheesy. Plastics where there used to be metal, easy to strip break or over tighten5
Great storageMarkThis was easy to put together and looks great. Is great storage for us.5
No screws to bolt to wallGrace C.For a shelving unit that depends on being bolted to the wall per IKEA’s instructions, they didn’t actually provide the screws needed to do it, nor do the instructions tell you at the beginning that you need said screw before you begin. We have a two-year-old, and so we panic-searched our house for something to bolt the shelf with before we had to pick him up from daycare. All the instructions had was a dotted outline of the screw with an absent product number (which all the included parts had throughout the pictures) to show you it wasn’t included in the materials provided, and that info only showed up at the back of the instruction book in the steps for bolting it to the wall. There was no notice at the beginning saying to be sure to buy the screws so you could ensure you had all materials before building the shelf. Frustrating as a parent, to say the least!2

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.
Quality and feel
At first glance, KALLAX is a simple shelving unit, but it’s based on a love for details. The unit has smooth surfaces and rounded edges that make it appealing to the eye and enjoyable to touch. We’ve also worked hard to make the shelves align perfectly so you avoid eye-sore gaps, giving the unit a uniform look. Simply put, all of KALLAX is well-thought-out down to the smallest detail and exudes a solid feel of quality – which results in a nicer and more timeless impression.
