Great systemSteveNot had them for long but install was great. A well thought out system.5
Very good experience assembling and installing kitchen cabinets!CARROLLMy only issue is with all IKEA assembly instructions. Their picture approach is good, but there are assembly points that would benefit from some written instructions.5
Drawers cabinetRossanaUnfortunately this cabinet ,I bought online ,it’s not as I expected.
The drawers are to small is impossible to use for anything .
The installation is extremely difficult and the quality is not good1
Deep drawersMary StevensEach drawer is still deeper than my old cabinets. I just love this cabinet and I installed omlopp lights in each drawer too. Hi5
High marks for style & functionalityJeanne RAs part of a kitchen remodel, I loved the look of the six drawer unit--and always need extra drawer space. Drawers all operate beautifully with soft closing feature. Bought IKEA felt pad to line the drawers--and organizer containers for several drawers. Assembly & installation was handled by contractor.5
Doctors officesWestEndCarrI’m a CIC (commercial interior construction) general contractor. I put these in every doctors office. They’re great they look retro and modern at the same time.5
Love kitchen drawers!Trudy99I love having drawers in the kitchen. They're so much easier to use than cabinets - no more hunting around in the back, because everything comes to you and is easily reached.5
Incredible storage!Manchester by the SeaGreat neutral style that goes with the more decorative matching cabinets in the set. This holds all the utensils and relatively flat kitchen equipment, which is terrific.5
it worksBerferdThis is one of several cabinets I purchased together. It seems that Ikea has figured out how to make buying a cabinet more complex than dealing with the DMV and Social Security department - combined! The cabinets work, that's not a difficult task, but for all of the trouble I went through to buy them there is no excuse. I walked in with a completed design - I had even listed the part numbers. They require that one of their 'experts' enter the order for you. Over three hours later, and four of their 'experts' working as a committee to place the order, I finally had a receipt in hand. Yup, they made a couple errors, so I ended up with some parts I didn't ask for and I don't need. Why do they insist on their process? I wasn't able to find anyone who could answer that question.3
Usefull and easy to clean under with legs.BoddiyI bought this year, the second time after 10 years. Both with legs. Easy to clean under. First time the connection screws was included. Easy to decide after the purchase.5
Kitchen1Love these cabinets, get lots of compliments on the style .. soft close is the way to go!5
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.
What is particleboard?
Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
