Solid wood dresserANNEsolid wood dresser, was able to sand & stain to match bedroom.5
Good piece for the priceHopePut this dresser in my closet to add more storage. Fits great, looks good, and is built very sturdy. I also like you can paint it to match your room.5
Easy AssemblyOmarAlthough one of the holes for the backbord was not drilled out. It was easy to assemble it. And it looks great put together.5
ehhh...EmmaI recently purchased this dresser for our bedroom, loved the fact that it could be stained etc. The quality of the wood itself is great, but the quality of the dresser as a whole sucks. The drawers are not even, the bottom of the drawers are flimsy and you cant fit much in them. If you are buying this as an everyday dresser to store lots in, move along. If you are buying this more for looks and very little storage, its perfect.2
Not bad!mommayoginiBought this for my daughter's room. She likes the natural look of it. It's not easy to put together and it's not the most sturdy but it will get the job done!4
Looks Nice, Challenging to AssembleAnonymous reviewerI bought this recently, and my husband put it together. We are giving up 25-year-old Ikea furniture for new, and I think we’re losing on the deal. That said, the dresser looks nice and arrived in good shape. The instructions, on the other hand, were really unclear in places.3
Coquitte2004I bought this month ago and I am happy5
Excellent WoodAsap MommyI love this dresser. Also purchased the matching night stand. My son loves the set.5
Good product- building it was a hassleLana7845Very happy with dresser. Purchased to use in a small walk in closet as extra storage along with the new Boaxel wall mounted shelving system. I appreciate that this dresser is easy to customize- I painted the body white and stained drawer fronts to match, purchased different knobs. My critique is that I had this halfway put together and realized I was missing 10 dowels and 6 screws. Went back to IKEA next day to get missing hardware (long drive, long line to re-enter store, long drive back home), then continued building .... only to realize I was ALSO missing 6 cam locks!! Was luckily able to find those at my local hardware store. Frustrating when parts are not all included and so many were missing from my box it seemed like a big oversight. Product is fine- but I’m currently hating the thing simply because it was such a headache to build.3
Not easy to assembleN MarinoThis took me and my boyfriend over an hour to assemble BUT once done right it looks great. The drawers move smoothly on their casters and I love the fresh from IKEA pine smell that comes off all the new raw pine furniture for a few weeks. I recommend buying this if you have someone to help you assemble it, time, and patience.5
Solid dresserCraftNinjaI built this by myself in one morning. It is anchored in my son's bedroom. So far it is great. I already built and installed the 6 drawer tarva in my daughter's room last year.5
Fits all my clothing essentialsChewyMom80I bought this last month, hoping that all my clothes would fit inside, and surprise everything fit perfectly! Big bonus, the smell of real Pine wood is awesome, not only on my clothes, but in my room as well.5
Poorly constructedAlex_83_I generally really like IKEA products and am confident putting them together. I have never seen another product so poorly designed. The screws used to attach the tracks for the drawers are impossibly to put it completely, and as a result the drawers won’t work at all. This is incredibly frustrating and wasteful. Maybe it can be fixed with other hardware but so far we have not been able to make it work at all.1
I love the bare wood designChreestafer6447You guys should make more barewood design options. Otherwise its amazing!5
Piece of junkQwerty1234567890Purchased this and it immediately started falling apart. Every time a drawer was pulled open it either fell off the track or the front of the drawer became disconnected from the sides. I returned it and bought a dresser elsewhere for fear of another IKEA dresser doing the same thing.1
Easy to add to existing decorLou981Stained easily could have been painted as easily. Works well for the space I put it in4
csk1I have uncrated it but am planning to pint it before assembling. Great finish, will not need to do any sanding at all.5
BEWARE OF THE SMELL!!Arzechp1213I love love the look and functionality of this drawer! So much space and can be easily matched with everything. It took me about an hour to assembled by myself from start to finished. BUT it’s smell like horrid chemical!!! The chemical smells got into all my clothes and I had to wash everything after storing in the drawers for a few days. I was hoping it’ll go away but It’s been almost a month now and the horrid chemical smell is still lingering! I recommend airing out the panels somewhere with ventilation perhaps outside or porch for a few days/weeks before assembled. If you live in a small apt in NYC like I am I don’t recommend this unless you want your clothes and room to smell like chemicals.1
best buy for paintable furniturekndsimpsonI purchased this to store my arts and crafts. the construction is great. very solid. No wobbles at all and the drawer bottoms are better than my regular dresser.5
Amazing unfinished wood chest of drawerskkavehmaI was not sure if I want to buy this set at first but I bought it coz it had enough number of drawers for my need and matched the queen size tarva bed I was planning to get. I normally rather to buy something light coloured wooden but coloured or coated. After getting this set I have change my mind. The drawer piece looks great in my bed. My clothing now have a mild smell of pine that is amazing. The look of tarva is true Scandinavian lodge/cabin and I am totally sold on it. Hopefully IKEA keeps making them. Specially in such low price having real solid pine drawer is very nice.5

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.

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.
