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.
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.
Floating shelvesDebbiVery satisfied, I bought 2 for my living room in my new house. Lots of compliments.
Not suitable to everyone!AnnaWithout brackets, it can't be put up to my wall.
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.
Nice shelf for my daughter's roomIvanInstalled in my daughter's room, she loves it
GoodArturoPrice has gone up a lot since I first bought this item. Not all ikea fault
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.
solid constructionRachelEasy to put up, nice "floating style," and very sturdy.
wall shelvesElviraGreat wall accent for decorations
Easy to install it in the wall
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!
Great shelfDaleNice design and excellent mounting system.
ShelfLauraGreat buy! Nice depth! Easy to install.
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.
Well made and easy to installRaymondUsed these in several locations to display collectibles, photos and nick-nacks. Easy to install.
Lack shelvingAshleyGreat product and easy to use and install
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!
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.
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!!
Shelf was perfect. Great qualityDouglasPick up understanding a little shaky but smooth sailing once I understood
