love love loverainydazs2000love this drawer unit. only problem is there are too many parts and took forever to put together!5
It is a sturdy pieceJessv77I purchased this for my daughter’s room and it is a sturdy piece5
Good dresserabby7391Got the black-brown color w out seeing the color in store--pleasantly surprised that it looks more black in person. The wood grain is pretty and the dresser overall looks quite minimalist and nice. Assembly was tedious but not difficult. Felt flimsy at first but in the end it was larger and sturdier than it seemed it would be during assembly. Good dresser overall.5
Easy to put together.Old lady78I really love me the dresser and want to buy 2 more. They have been out of stock for weeks.5
Mo AIt was an Easy setup. We love it.5
Dangerous edgesAnnieannBeware! The edges on the drawers are very sharp! I had a drawer open while I changing and I turned around and barely grazed my arm on the corner of the drawer and it cut it all the way down! Nothing deep but it was not fun and I realized all of the drawers have very sharp corners!2
Clean Lines & Easy to BuildBoatyWe were a little worried when this came in 3 boxes. However, the instructions were clear and the various components went together smoothly. By the time we were halfway through the second box we were able to confidently and quickly build the remaining drawers. Very nice lines and has a clean appearance.5
Great featuresJKD0129I bought 2 to complete an open concept closet. This gives the perfect amount of storage while maintaining the clean lines we were going for5
Great for the priceKay2015We’ve had two of these in our master bedroom for about a month now and we like them. 180 for a dresser is really cheap so I feel like the quality for that price is really good. Assembly was a bit confusing but we just found a video on YouTube and that made it really easy. We’re going to buy another for my sons room once they get the gray back in stock. I gave it four stars because one of the top drawers doesn’t sit right it’s slightly off But for 180 I’m fine with it.4
AwesomeBora16So happy I purchased this, so much space5
Stunning!Niki101I bought this chest to go with my maple furniture set that I've had for a decade. It matches very well! The quality of the chest is fantastic. Building it took about 4 hours the first time, and 2 hours the second time (we bought the Black version for my brother). Drawer quality is great and it looks stunning!5
Very disappointedJDoe123I have had very good luck with Ikea furniture, I love my kitchen island and utility cart, however, this dresser was not a good purchase. I bought this item over a month ago, had to wait a month for it to be delivered, assembled the entire thing only to find that the pre-drilled holes for the 2 top drawers were off by 1/4 so we couldn't get the last top drawer to slide all the way in. We had to return it the next day.1
Great size and qualityAdamShanG23Delivered on time, packaging good. Easy to assemble and looks great in my kids closet. Great size drawers and the tracks are sturdy. Happy that there's an additional cross bar on the bottom of the drawers for added support.5
Great Storage!MGoMonty88Having recently moved into my new apartment, I needed affordable furniture of decent quality--and that's where IKEA came in! Fairly simple to assemble, within about 4 hours time it went from box to drawer chest! My only nit-picks are that the exterior wood facade is not coated/decently smooth, so my cleaning rag consistently snags on the outside, leaving little puffs of fabric all over. Additionally, if you don't get the screw into the drawer tracks perfectly so they're flush with the surface of the tracks, they will forever bump, make noise, and grind against the white wheels mounted to the drawer chest inside walls.4
It’s working very well for me. I enjoy the space iShortysmallPurchased it a little less than a month ago; and now I’m waiting on the Chester drawer set to be delivered @ the end of this month.5
Great featuresYongsamGood quality and great function5
Over the moonLa_jokeyyI have been eyeing these dressers for a while and finally got around to purchasing them and I'm just over the moon and back they are true to size they have a lot of space in them5
Big drawersGiaSofiaThis is the third Malm drawer I've bought, it's drawers are big and I have a lot of stuff so it great for me. I have one in every room.5
More than enough space and easy to use!Tatty524I bought this for my Grandmother. She has carpal tunnel syndrome and struggled to open the old fashion solid wood furniture that she had. The drawers are easy to open gliding with little effort from her and they even hold more than her old dresser. She is happy and I am happier!5
It"s nice but I have one problem.LivOnSundayI started redecorating my room during quarantine. I looked far and wide for a grey tall dresser that was not too expensive. I ended up purchasing this one and it is beautiful in person. I put it together by myself and it was pretty simple (for me but you guys should get better instructions) until I got to the last part of the draw where I have to put the rod in the middle of the bottom of the draw. I am completely stuck. My dad came and even tried to see if he could do it but he's puzzled too. I can't reach customer service. I don't know how these rods are supposed to go and I don't want to use the dresser without them because I know they're there to secure the bottom of the drawer. Other than that, the dresser seems sturdy and has a nice quality to it. I wish there was better customer service so I can be done with this.3

Secure your home from tipping furniture

When your child begins to crawl and climb, the whole home turns into an exciting adventure land. But, since the toddler doesn’t have any risk awareness, the home environment can hold some hazards, for example furniture that can tip over. Sometimes it can be difficult to see the risks at home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.  Read More

Low furniture can tip too

One might think that only high, narrow furniture can tip over – not a low, deep chest of drawers filled with heavy things. But, if several drawers are open, the centre of gravity shifts and the chest of drawers tips over. Unfortunately, both children and adults can be seriously injured, even fatally, if they end up under the weight of a falling chest of drawers. Accidents can also happen because heavy objects on top of a piece of furniture fall down, for example, a TV. The heavier things, the more serious consequences. Experience shows that it’s absolutely safest to secure all furniture that risk tipping over to a wall.

Remember the laws of physics?

When we develop our furniture, we do everything we can to make them as stable and safe as possible. It affects the choice of materials and the furniture’s construction. But, we haven’t yet figured out how to outsmart the laws of nature. Like the fact that a pulled out drawer works like a lever. Perhaps you remember the principle of leverage from the physics lessons in school? If not, it can be described like this; even a small weight can shift the center of gravity considerably if the weight is applied to a pulled out drawer (or an open door). It means that a small child that stands, sits or climbs on an open drawer can cause a large chest of drawers to tip over if it’s not secured – despite the child’s low weight.

Children and tipping chests of drawers

Children are curious and creative. That’s how they learn new things and discover the world around them. But, it also contributes to children 1-7 years old being more accident-prone. And the smallest ones, 1-4 years old, are most at risk of serious injuries. That’s why a chest of drawers – no matter model or size – can be a hazard if it isn’t secured to the wall. There are examples from all over the world where children have pulled out one or several drawers and climbed on them like a ladder, hung on, heaved up on, or climbed into them. But, by always securing your chest of drawers to the wall you can prevent and minimize the risks for children who explore the world.

Adults and tipping chests of drawers

It isn’t just children who accidentally tip over chests of drawers and risk injuries. Even as adults we sometimes open several drawers at the same time, especially if we’re in a hurry. Another mistake we sometimes make is to put too many or too heavy things in the front of the drawers. In all these cases the center of gravity shifts outside the base of the furniture and they tip over. An uneven floor, a carpet edge or a thick wall-to-wall carpet can also cause instability and tipping accidents.

Common myths and misconceptions

Sometimes it can be hard to discover the potential hazards in your own home where everything is familiar. Here we unravel some common myths and misconceptions that explain why not all chests of drawers have been secured to the wall.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

No matter how logical this might feel, it’s actually wrong. All furniture can tip over. They become unstable if they have open drawers or doors that work as a lever and move the center of gravity. The force that’s generated when furniture tip over can be strong and cause very serious accidents – especially if they’re heavy-loaded.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip too and risk injuring someone. If several drawers are opened at the same time, the center of gravity moves. And when too much weight is distributed from the center of a chest of drawers, it tips over. A child that climbs on it, affects the center of gravity the same way. That’s why you should always follow the assembly instructions that show how to secure your furniture to the wall.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

As a parent, it’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Unfortunately, many accidents happen when you lack foresight. Luckily you have good possibilities to minimize the risks if you secure chests of drawers and other furniture to the wall – even in rooms where the children don’t spend much time.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s all well. But, latching drawers and doors can’t replace securing the furniture and doesn’t eliminate all risks. A child learning to walk usually likes to heave up against a chest of drawers by pulling a handle, and can thereby make it tip over.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

When children play, they sometimes forget what you have told them. Just because they are older doesn’t mean it’s all safe. In addition, many adults, especially elderly, hurt themselves badly, sometimes fatally, in accidents with furniture that tip over.

I rent my home and can’t drill holes in the wall

Most landlords in most parts of the world think it’s OK if you secure your furniture to create a safe home for your children. But, it’s good to talk to your landlord and perhaps explain what risks there are. Feel free to spread some of the knowledge we are sharing here.

The accident risk seems small, do I have to care?

More people than one might think are injured every year in accidents with tipping furniture. Between 2006 and 2016 approximately 47,000 children under the age of 18 had to seek medical care in the US because of accidents with tipping chests of drawers (source: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nov 2017). Holes in the wall are actually quite simple to fix – there’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.

Secure your chest of drawers, simple and safe

When you buy a chest of drawers from IKEA you should always follow the assembly instructions and secure it with the accompanied fittings. They’re easy to mount, and screws and plugs are included. Just fill the holes with putty when you want to move your chest of drawers, or are moving to another home.

My chest of drawers is heavy, there’s no risk that it will tip over

All furniture can tip over, especially if the drawers are opened and the center of gravity shifts.

My chest of drawers is low, there’s no risk that it will tip over

Low furniture can tip over too, so always follow the assembly instructions.

The chest of drawers is in a room where the children never play

It’s hard to keep an eye on your children at all times. Many accidents happen when they're out of sight.

I have latched all drawers and doors

That’s good. But, it doesn’t replace securing the furniture to the wall.

My children are older, they know not to climb the furniture

But, they easily forget. It isn’t all safe just because they are older.

My chest of drawers is stable and from a well-known furniture company

Even the seemingly most stable piece of furniture can tip over.

The risk of accidents seems small, do I have to care?

People are injured in these kinds of accidents every year. There’s no reason to risk the family’s safety.
