It is estimated that every five seconds, one BILLY bookcase is sold somewhere in the world. Pretty impressive considering we launched BILLY in 1979. It’s the booklovers choice that never goes out of style.

Great, just beware if you have an old BillySuperCTLove the doors, just a few things to be aware of: the varnish / finish is much lighter than the old doors, probably a cost saving change and it's not a big deal, I just wish it had a little more shine and protection to it. But most important of all - if you have an older Billy please be aware that they have CHANGED THE POSITION OF THE HINGES! The older Billies don't have holes for shelves at the very top and very bottom of the bookcase. The old model doors had hinges that went about halfway up the bottom level and top level of the bookcases and the predrilled holes in the older Billies fit these. The new Oxberg doors, and presumably the new Billies, have holes that go all the way from the very bottom to the very top, and the new door hinges fit in these top and bottom positions. There isn't an option to change where the hinges go on the doors (due to a round cut out that the hinges fit in) so you have to create new holes for the hinges. At first I found a thread on Ikeahackers that gave the dimensions and I attempted the first few using a paper template I created, but in the end I found it easier to just put the hinges on the door first and then have my boyfriend hold the door where I needed it on the bookcase and then make a pilot hole with a drill and fit it that way (instead of trying to measure and find I was off by a fraction which would make the whole process a nightmare which I came perilously close to doing). Also note that the older Billies have slightly different shaped holes that require a slightly wider screw for the hinges, after running to Ikea to pick up 70 of the old screws I came home to do the installation and realized the screw size didn't matter since the hinges don't line up with the predrilled holes anyway and I was making my own holes.4
Why not all wood? Remove the glass!LulumamaThe door is fine. You are stuck with this if you want a nice looking door for Billy. However, I want a door to hide stuff, so the glass is not preferred. We waited and waited for the all “wood” door to come back, but it’s been 3 years and they still only offer the glass. We bout the mirror spray paint so it has an antique mirror look, but still prefer no glass. Install was fine.2
Easy additionBobTeslaAdded these to our existing Billy Bookcase easily. The only thing that disappointed was that, while the Oxberg comes in a 2 glass panel or a half glass/half wood panel, there was not a 2 wood panel option.4
Wish an opaque door were still an optionMechDaughterI love the Billy/Oxberg series! My living room is almost entirely lined with this stylish system, and it's gorgeous for storage and display. I've recently incorporated Billies into my kitchen storage, and I'm enormously disappointed - that even though, over the years there have been Oxbergs with tall translucent, or fully wooden doors PERFECT for hiding pantry items - IKEA no longer produces any such option. Using two smaller doors doesn't fit as well as one full size Oxberg. I would love to see IKEA bring back some kind of full coverage Oxberg again.4
Easy to install doorsMha2004I had a Billy bookcase that I decided to turn into kitchen storage. I purchased the doors to upgrade the look and they're fantastic. They look great and were easy to install.5
Billy bookcases, Oxberg doors & glass shelvesDover DivaI bought 6 Billy bookcases, doors for 2 of the largest bookcases & glass shelves to show off my fine china & glassware. Arranged the grouping as a room divider in my bowling ally like lr-Dr combo. Works beautifully. Did change the pull knobs on the doors5
Quality has deteriorated in favor of profit...Bob HI purchased OXBERG doors and BILLY bookcases a few years ago and I have been EXTREMELY happy with the quality and durability. I recently purchased an additional BILLY bookcase with OXBERG doors and I am TRULY disappointed in the shoddy quality. On the newer version, both the bookcase and the doors feel rough and unfinished, unlike the previous versions, which are very smooth, with a surface finish applied. In addition, one of the OXBERG doors was slightly warped, keeping it from closing flush with the bookcase.....Contacting customer service produced a canned response...”If you are unhappy with the product, please return it for a replacement or refund”.... I have been a decades-long customer of IKEA and have relied on the consistency of their products, over the years. It becomes sadly evident that they are following the lead of many OTHER manufacturers, by diminishing quality, in order to produce higher profits. My long-time relationship is wavering.1
Good except for the knobs.philly77I was not able to install the knobs. They are some kind of plastic or rubberized material. I could not get a screw to go in all the way... and it was not possible to drill out a larger bore. In the end I bought different knobs at the hardware store.4
OXBERG PANELKENBAS ALWAYS WE ARE COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE EVER PURCHASED FROM OUR COMPLETE KITCHEN ,CABINETS ,BOOKCASES ETC ! EASY AND FUN TO ASSEMBLE !!!5
Gorgeous Look!Dennie52I bought these glass panel doors to put on the dhekved I also bought from IKEA to make me a shoe storage what I call my “SHE ROOM” which is my husband and I his/her room to lounge, closet and office. This room looks Awesome. On one wall I have the shelves with the glass panel doors n a flat screen in the middle part of one of the shelves. On the opposite side, I have Leather Recliner Love Seat. On another wall I have the Mickey Desk from IKEA as well. This room looks sooo good. It turned out better than what I invisioned. Thanks IKEA! A Very Hapoy Customer5
Great finishing piece for the BillysyykeaLooks great and finishes the Billy bookcase very well. However, I have 2 complaints 1) Provided doorknobs are just plastic knubs and 2) color selection could be better (we wanted red doors, but if you want red doors you have to buy a completely new Billy bookcase with doors included. I thought IKEA was mix and match/ interchangeable/ multiple use king? I guess not).4
Goes perfect with the Billy bookcaseKay7310I bought this for the second time recently. I have the doors on 2 Billy bookcases. I like how the door keeps my books dust free on the shelf. My favorite feature about the door is the half panel glass which allows you to see your display of books. I highly recommend this product. I think it’s stylish and sleek, and the quality is amazing for the price.5
Not the greatest qualityRonn18Unfortunately it was not the correct one for Billy Bookcase, :( The quality is not great because heavy on the glass top, but not the bottom side, almost falling a part when I just bought it1
Billy bookcase changed and door does not workBobBobThis item was returned, as we needed double glass. We have bookcase that we're purchased before 2014 and Billy system changed so there no doors that will work per web site and when asked at the store they also did not know. If we had not looked for stock before returning them we would had to return the all glass door as web site said they would not work, but no were at the store did they have this posted.1
Perfect companion for slender Billy bookcaseNorCalFoxThis door is simple, but makes a huge difference in the appearance of the Billy bookcase. It makes it easy to hide routers/wires/mess behind the wood panel and makes a cluttered bookcase look clean again.5
Exactly the look I was looking forEmilia02The panel glass door really completes the shelf I am very satisfied with it.5
Bharlan2003Beyond happy. I have 6. I am building a full wall hutch.... Could not be happier5
Very niceUsVeroWould be great if Oxberg could be all glass4
Very nice but the door nob is so hard to assemblyZiLiLooks great and works great but the wish there is a thought hole for the door nob instead of making customer to drive a nail through the door surface. (The hole is not a complete hole through the surface) the nob I assembled is not completely in contact with the door surface. Which is acceptable but wish it can be better. The overall look is very great!3
Beautiful!JandDNicely made and they look good! We needed eight doors and they all looked great and could be constructed easily.5
