Instructions clearly not written to go together- look at BOTH!!Jacki K.Love the unit, but I’m extremely irritated that the instructions for the shelving unit say nothing about the underframe requiring four of the larger bolts from the unit to come out so the brackets can be installed. That information is in the instructions for the underframe. I have problems with dexterity and am none too happy about doing the work of getting those bolts in securely just to turn around and have to do it again. Also would have appreciated one of the screwdrivers with 90 degree bends for getting the underframe screws in.
Otherwise, lovely storage unit. Tip over hardware is a lot better than the old plastic kits and the wide variety of inserts add more functionality.
Beautiful colorJayasree N.Kallax as always, quite utilitarian. But this color my new buy, looks stunning with the baskets shown. Also got other natural baskets/bins. My kitchen/dining has a farmhouse feel in my 1BR apartment. When fixing the smaller panel, doing alone with arthritic hands, had to use rubber/mallet lightly. Even for my fragile hands, left a cookie-crumble crack. They are quite flimsy. However, since this has underframe, I used the felt pads like a honeycomb design to cover the crack. It is best to take a helping hand. This being long top panel, thankfully I did not break the wood plugs. Ikea, pl provide some extra wood plugs for any Kallax . Thanks.
Love thisArleneWe saw this at a friend's house and fell in love with it. Now we have our own and love it.
All of themNicoleI think we bought every version of this shelf for our home. They were so easy to put together and look great.
Perfect for board gamesKATHYVery easy to assemble, sturdy storage for our collection of games.
Love it!JAYThere's too many black shelving units in my place so I thought I'd go for a brighter unit. So glad I did! I love this for my media/turntable/vinyl/cds/art books collection. I hope thet make a dvd shelf unit.
Also easy to put together.
Basic, Solid CabinetMichaelOverall, one of the better bargains IKEA offers. Very straight ahead, sturdy console.
KallaxLisaI am using this as a large ironing board in my sewing room! Love that it fits the large iron pad and I have storage below instead of wasted space. This product went together quickly and easy enough for me to handle myself.
It is exactly what weJosephIt is exactly what we need
My first Ikea builVickiThis was my first time assembling a piece of Ikea furniture. It was easier than I expected and it looks great. Would definitely recommend Kallax products.
Perfect fit!LisaI bought this as a tv stand for the guest room. I added storage cubes below and put books and a few other decorative items on the top row. The additional stand was a great addition to give it a nice touch.
JohnJOHNEasy assembly , well made and a nice addition to my library!

KallaxANITAGlad I was able to assemble unit myself.
Kallax storageKarenWorks great for storage of my fabric. Also purchased the bins to go with it. If you want to hide your storage there are several different colors to pick from.
Love itFaerynI already have 7 of these. They're lightweight yet sturdy, easy to put together and move around, and fun to customize.
Kitchen island!!WendyI put two of these kallax cubes together to create a kitchen island. One side for kitchen storage and one side for other storage. Put a butcher block counter on top and it looks great. Roomy, sturdy and attractive.
Love it!JESSICAThis was perfect for a coffee bar! We get compliments on it all the time. We love it!

Perfect Simple TV StandDavidI actually went in to buy something different, but when I saw the possibility of changing the orientation of this bookshelf and combining with a stand (maybe not even necessary but I think it enhances the appearance), I bought this instead. It seems sturdy and durable, looks good, I’m happy with my purchase. I put a couple of Fossta bins in mine but there are many other options for the storage bays.
