Ikea Malm Chest : 4 Drawers
Advantages: strong and sturdy
I have recently parted with this set of drawers earlier this year after five faithful years of use.
I cannot remember the original purchase price for this but it was on offer in Ikea at the time when I was wandering around looking for a decent set of drawers as I was fed up of cheap flimsey ones that fell as part after a years use.
The depth of the drawers was what caught my eye with this chest as they were twice the depth of others I had looked at so I went and opened one and when I found they were made of strong materials and none of those silly plastic corners I was sold so brought it there and then.
It comes flat packed so I could take it home with me there and then but I would recommend there are two of you as this is rather heavy to lift when flat packed.
The assembly instructions were easy to follow even for an idiot like me and it was soon together, it felt really wobbly and flimsey untill I attached the back board and then it was very stable.
Over the years it has been used in my room and the children's room as well as moving house with us so has been moved a few times and never came apart or became wobbly like other Ikea furniture has on me in the past.
We are all guilty of over cramming the drawers at times and this was something I certainly did with this but unlike others the bottom of the drawers has never moved or sagged.
This fantastic set of drawers I would recommend to anyone as it lasted the test of time in our house and has gone to a new home as there was plenty of life left in it, I would not have parted with it had I not changed the colour scheme of furniture in our house
Summary: a fantastic chest of drawers
