IKEA Kallax Review

We recently took delivery of 4 different sized Kallax cubes delivered from our local IKEA. We were given delivery updates right up until the drivers were 45 minutes away, pretty impressive to say the least.

We chose a 2 cube and a 4 cube storage unit for the living room and two x 4 square cube for two bedrooms.

Here are the ones we purchased with the prices included (prices correct for Jan 2018):

Building the Kallax Units

I am no way a DIY expert although I have built a number of larger IKEA items in the past. These Kallax units are very, very easy to put together and our family thinks they look great in our rooms.

Within the package you get 4 pads to fit to the bottom of the unit to prevent the floor from getting scratched.

The parts also include an allen key to put the screws in. The only other parts include the screws to fit the sides together.

When building the cube the instructions are very easy to follow.

Kallax Cube Dimensions

Here are the dimensions for the units:

  • Two cube size is 77cm x 42cm
  • Four cube square is 77cm x 77cm
  • Tall single four cube unit is 42cm x 147cm

Kallax Unit Inserts

The great thing about the Kallax units is that you can accessorize them within different inserts. The inserts allow you to convert a simple cube into a cool drawer system.

To find the types of accessories that fit in the Kallax units you need to know the names of them.

Examples are:

  • Lekman
  • Drona
  • Branas
  • Knipsa
  • Tjena
  • Bladdra

Here are a few examples of the types of inserts available that fit inside the squares of the Kallax units:

I can fully recommend the Kallax range from IKEA to enhance the look and feel of your home. The units are not too heavy to carry or to put in you car.
