Perfect addition for my craft room storage needs.ShirleyI needed more storage for my craft room and there isn't much square footage so using wall space was a must. We bought 2 of the large lack shelves and they are the perfect solution.5
Worked perfectly in our pantryKarenWe were re-doing our walk in pantry to allow for better use of the space. These shelves were perfect for this purpose. We used the white ones, but have used the darker ones as well for our shelves in the finished basement. These are are a great, versatile option for shelving.5
Floating shelvesDebbiVery satisfied, I bought 2 for my living room in my new house. Lots of compliments.5
Not suitable to everyone!AnnaWithout brackets, it can't be put up to my wall.1
Started sagging after a year Do not recommend CynthiaWe didn’t put anything heavy or more than the recommended weight on these shelves and they started sagging and wouldn’t stay flush with the wall. We had to put a shim on the bottom so the shelf would stay level and not sag. There aren’t enough brackets so that they line up with your studs so that’s the other issue and they are not substantial by any means and probably contributed to the problem. 1
Nice shelf for my daughter's roomIvanInstalled in my daughter's room, she loves it5
GoodArturoPrice has gone up a lot since I first bought this item. Not all ikea fault4
Good for the price, bracket design is frustratingJasonThese are basically hollow core doors. Good for lightweight items. They are very light and easy to mount to the included bracket. I gave it three stars for the mounting bracket. There are lots of holes on the mounting bracket, but the holes do not line up with standard US construction 16 inch on center stud spacing. I had to drill out two of the three holes to anchor it to studs behind the wall. Not terribly difficult, but will take some time drilling through metal. Also a bit frustrating looking at a dozen other pre-drilled holes that aren't spaced for US construction. Also, no screws included to mount the bracket to the wall, so don't forget to pick those up at your big box home store while you are out. I used 1.5" cabinet screws which have a flat backed washer head and sit flush with the bracket.4
solid constructionRachelEasy to put up, nice "floating style," and very sturdy.5

Just BeautifulLisaInstalled two shelves in my home office. They look so good. Only minor disappointment was the back edge was chipped and dented. Against the wall you cannot see it but better packaging on the bracket side would prevent that. Otherwise, it would have been straight 5 stars!5
Great shelfDaleNice design and excellent mounting system.5
ShelfLauraGreat buy! Nice depth! Easy to install.5
Not great for mounting to studsCalebThe shelf looks great. The mounting plate is disappointing. The way the holes are aligned makes it impossible to mount the shelf to more than one stud - for example it lines up fine on one half but the other half can only hit dry wall, and there's no way to realign it. The hole placement does not make sense.2
Well made and easy to installRaymondUsed these in several locations to display collectibles, photos and nick-nacks. Easy to install.5
Lack shelvingAshleyGreat product and easy to use and install5
LACK lacks supportSaraThis longer LACK shelf does not hang nicely once installed. The metal support does not offer enough support for this to be a floating shelf. It tilts downward with nothing even on it. Disappointed. The shorter LACK shelves work well!1
It's definitely a shelfDaveQuality of the shelf is great. The brackets however.... We bought 4 shelves to make a pair of long shelves in our library. The pins on the bracket aren't welded square or true, and as a result the shelf will sit skewed, even of the bracket is level to less than 0.1 degrees. 4 shelves, 4 skewed brackets, none in the same direction. It's incredibly frustrating, considering just 5 years ago the shelves and brackets were aligned perfectly.3
Very sturdy attractive storage shelfRoxieI didn't realize when I bought it that is has a very solid metal mounting bracket that the decorative shelf slips over. It works great!!5
Shelf was perfect. Great qualityDouglasPick up understanding a little shaky but smooth sailing once I understood5

Our take on wood

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.

Material

What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.

Function solution

How much weight can a shelf hold?

Even a strong wall shelf will only be able to bear a little weight if it's attached to the wall with the wrong hardware. For a wall shelf to be practical and secure you must use the right hardware for the wall type. Check if your walls are concrete, plaster or wood. There are hardware for all wall types. If you can, try to determine what part of the wall is load-bearing. The most secure place to mount a shelf is on the bearing part of the wall.
