IKEA Expedit Bookcase

Great design and great for keeping my collection of interior design samples organized – the Lekman boxes fit the shelves perfectly – and until I get the time to design built-in storage this is a great solution.

      I'm considering purchasing one or two of these as bookshelves. It seems to be deep enough to place books 'two-deep' (except for large books), so that I could have one set of books on each side. Do any current owners have an opinion on whether it is built strong enough to hold that many books?!

    Trust me. I know it's IKEA and will break in 6 to 12 months. That said, it's the best deal in town. I recommend mixing and matching. I don't think IKEA does though. We were able to slip out of the store with a white frame and birch shelveing. It looks dope.

    I just want a library. A room stuffed to the gills with all my beautiful books. Is that so wrong?

    This is a big, expensive looking piece for a great price. The black/brown case is awesome in person. Seriously: you can't beat the price.

    a beautiful, useful piece with a low pricetag. what a winning combination! this roomy design has space for all your books and knickknacks, and provides visual interest. a simple design, it can be incorporated into a number of different decors and rooms. it works well as a room divider too, for large living spaces that need to be defined.

    It's so hard to find a bookcase that looks stylish and that is affordable! This one is a sweet deal!

    I just finished my new scrapbook/craft room and I bought two of these for storage (one small and one large). Awesome storage and my 12"x12" scrapbooks fit perfectly. Best investment I ever made, I love the Expedits. They were fairly easy to put together, only took me about 2 1/2 hours for both units. A tip on assembly though is to make sure you have a rubber mallet handy. You can set the wood pegs a lot faster and easier and you won't cause any damage to your new shelf. I am not a "handyman" and was a little intimidated at first with all the parts and pieces, so trust me....if I can do it, anyone can!

      I have the Expedit in the dark chocolate color and I LOVE it! We have moved and I have assembled and disassembled it 3 times, it is super easy and looks great. Can't beat the price either!

    this thing is awesome. My reccomendation is to use epoxy or glue when you put it together or they start to get the "IKEA Wobbles". As the particle board starts to get weak around the dowels holing them together you can push them and they'll wobble from side to side.

    I have this and use it as a catch-all display. We put candles on the top (or decorations for holidays), books, magazines, sculptures, and more in the actual cubbies. We laid ours horizontally and it was fairly easy to put together and more stable than most other Ikea furniture.

    The IKEA EXPEDIT bookcase is one of those inexpensive basics for your home. Available in multiple sizes, it also functions as a room divider. I purchased a white 58" for our home office/craft room.

    The Expedit bookcase by Ikea. So many cubbies. So much stuff. I like that it allows me to put all my books, dvds, magazines, cds, photos, knick knacks and brickabracks in one centralized place, eliminating clutter all over my apt.

    I have used these so many times! They look way more expensive than you'd think in person, and you can add casters (wheels) to the bottom to make them really practical and moveable. Plus that keeps you from damaging the floors. I only suggest the brown/black, because the white ones look much cheaper and get beat up really fast. When you get this, please put it together with wood glue (in every single hole and on every joining surface!) and your bookcase will last twice as long. Check out my recommendation on the boxes and drawers and magazine files that work with this too!

    I love the simplicity of these bookcases. They have a substantial look. There is also a rectangular version that can be used upright or along its length. The price is very reasonable too.

    We have this in our "home office". Binders, file boxes, photo albums and storage containers from Ikea all fit in it so perfectly. what a great way to keep our lives organized. Added the Ikea magazine rack on the side of it for additional easy to grab files.
