Do not buy this!!


Loved the look of this bookcase and we were excited to get it home and build it. Pulled it out of the packaging - dirty stains along the edge of each shelf, wooden pegs snap, very hard to put together. We bought the white one. People who love this are either the handyman of the year or live with one because we found it a nightmare! There are better out there...please do yourself a favour and do not bother with this bookcase.
Inexpensive, practical
Cheap, nightmare to assemble, dirty marks and scratches on surfaces, hard to hammer together without putting dents in the wood (even when using a cloth between the wood and hammer!)

Simple and effective


We needed a bookshelf that could fit neatly lots of books and still look stylish.
This bookshelf does the trick, it is easy to install, cheap versus other bookshelves on the market and durable. We chose the black finish, it does not attract too much dust and looks good against a white wall.
We have had ours for 5 years and haven't looked back.
Cheap, timeless, good storage space

One of the best items of furniture you can buy


The Expedit bookcases are absolutely fantastic. They are incredibly multifunctional- You can always find a use for it. I've used mine as a bookcase, Entertainment unit, room divider. It has been both vertically and horizontally, and I love that there is an ever changing range of accessories to suit.

These bookcases are great if you like a clean look for your home, with everything out of sight. I would definitely buy more of these bookcases in the future.
Multifunctional, cheap, good looking, solid
They last longer if you don't move house to often (the movers scratched one of mine quite badly)
