Good bookcase but extra shelves are useless
Not beautiful but practical. I bought 2 extra shelves for each bookcase, but found that they can't be placed in the proper position because of the door hinges and some missing holes. Now I have 2 shelves in each bookcase that are too low to store my books upright. A missed opportunity.
Purchased in January 2015.
I purchased this bookshelf a couple months ago and have started noticing the doors stop closing properly, I have to have at least 4 tries to make the door remain shut!
Other than that, the bookshelf is really practical. It fits a lot of books and other bits and pieces. Also with the glass doors the dust stays out which saves me from cleaning :)
If you are considering buying it, read more about it - it isn't the cheapest option and I am sure there is other shelves out there that function better and are at a similar price.
Large, option with doors, stylish
functionality not so good
This is a low priced bookshelf from Ikea. It comes in a couple of colours and is large enough to hold a lot of books. My main problem with it is that if you read the instructions a certain way, you may think you are putting in the panels in the correct way, but you actually have it backwards. So, make sure you really concentrate and read and understand it completely. However it could just be us, and you could assemble this easily!
We bought this because it was low in price and its large in size. You really have to follow the instructions caref...

Am I able to buy extra shelf supports for Billy
NO. They are free, at least in Australia where I live. There are large drawer units with all sorts of spares in them. generally in the area where you pick up your goods. Just take as many as you want and put a small donation in the UNICEF box.
