Excellent quality... Got these in two rooms, drawers are a lot deeper than any other I've had in the past, and it's proper metal runners too....still going strong after 5 years... IKEA also sell the glass tops for that range, they're only around £10 each and well worth it... Heat added

Had mine for nearly nine years in main bedroom, get used every day and still going strong
Recommend

Got these in black for sons room... good build ...easy to put together and strong well worth the money

Have this in the nursery. Stores loads. Brought a curved sided baby changing mat from John Lewis and together, made a cheap baby changing table out of it.

Now little one is older it's just a great chest of drawer.

Bought this last night. Bonus as I wasn't aware of the price but I paid 39. Not sure what this soft close is that people are talking about though. I put it up this morning and it s very much standard close!

There are two options, normal drawers for £39 or the soft close option for £50. Looks like the OP has got the soft close for £40 on a store specific deal of the day.

I just checked my local store (lakeside - 2hrs drive) and they have the 4 drawer unit on offer of the week for £40 until tomorrow. Brilliant drawers, i got my whole bedroom kitted out 6 months ago and never looked back. My last drawers were about half the depth

don't forget to swipe your Ikea family card (or grab a temp card in-store). it gives you accidental damage insurance whilst they are in transit, handy for large/heavy items

These are far superior to anything you will get in Argos. In my opinion they are the best drawers that Ikea sell. As said above, they are very deep and the actual drawer is well made and sturdy, also on metal runners. We've had some in our bedroom for years and they are still going strong. Although they are the usual particle board and laminate that Ikea tends to use, they have not chipped or split anywhere. My daughter now has the white ones and they are taking some extra stick from a 10 year old, but still looking great a few years later. Brilliant at their normal price, even better with extra off.

it also gives you insurance when putting the things together.

i once put the wrong round grippy things in the holes of the side of drawers and mullered them so a quick trip to ikea and explained my foolish'ness and they sent me out some new drawer sides and fittings

These drawers are great. I have them, as well as bedside cabinets, all with glass tops. You'll get bored of them before they wear out.

I made the mistake of using glue when I put them together, I'm sure I will need a sledgehammer to get rid of them.

The price is good too.

Getting a free Ikea Family card is a no brainer, free insurance on the products and free drink (with refills) Mon-Fri. You can even apply instore on the computer there which prints off a temporary slip until your proper card arrives.

You must have been thinking 1980s furniture..I remember many times as a kid helping my dad out the little sachets (looked like restaurant sauce sachets) of wood glue that used to be supplied with many an MFI unit.

How times have changed...never have used any glue with any wooden dowl from Ikea units.

I just bought a whole bedroom of malm stuff, and agree with everything. It's very good stuff.

Building some of it now as it happens

The 4 high drawers are £49 in white too - cheaper to buy 2 of those than it is buying the 2wide by 3high unit (£100)

They are great. But do take time to put up. i put them inside built in wardrobes that were in a new house. They also do popup dividers to put in drawers which are handy for belts etc.

I was about to order online. They want £39 delivery, got to be a mistake.

Yep. been building self assembly for years and have built Ikea items with and without glue... Correct assembly and wood glue made all but the rediculously flimsy practically permanent (never used the stuff that came with the product).

Yeah I have them but sure they are on £39

I have never used glue or seen the need to with any Ikea furniture, not with any Malm, Billy, Kallax, Besta etc that I have assembled. Why this practice was used (and I remember my Dad always used his own wood glue rather than the tomato ketchup style sachets!) in the 80s I do not know. I still remember them having wooden dowels and cab bolts just the same.

Normal draws are £39 and soft close are £50 online. So maybe the soft close drawers are £40 on offer in store.

Wonder if you can convert existing malm units to soft close?

You're not wrong... but you may have heard of "belt and braces". sometimes I can be like that, depends on how the mood takes me.

Can anyone recommend which wardrobes they would choose to match these drawers (in white) they don't seem to do Malm wardrobes? Thanks

Agree about Pax. My word of warning is that I'm overly-familiar with Ikea construction but the sliding doors took me 8hrs to erect (carcasses 2hrs). You need enough space in the room to lay the whole door flat and flip it over, which meant in my case, I had to deconstruct the bed and remove all furniture from the bedroom.

I've had Malm as far back as when they used glue for the drawers. Bought a 3-drawer unit last year and can't believe how easy and strong they've become. My partner's problem is that she wants to replace them but can't find anything that stores as much **** as Malm does - they're amazing!

Pax wardrobes are great, shame they stopped doing the ones with drawers a while ago... need new runners for our lol! Ours are 12 years old now abd have been taken apart abd rebuilt/relocated around 4 or 5 times. The malm bed we had was also solid as a rock! Heat added for the drawers & memories too lol

Thanks everyone!

We have one of these in our bedroom. I replaced the top draw with a shelf, so it makes an ideal bedroom TV Unit

Most definitely disagree with suggestions that these are great quality. We have two in the bedroom and after 2 years both have runner problems and are very average..I thought they were good value at the time but as usual discovered one gets what one pays for. Okay for a room where only occasional use. Wish I had spent a bit more. Just the thought of having to drudge through the Ikea human maze to eventually get to checkout past all the other stupidly named products ...get them delivered if you can

Hot. These are brilliant. Bought two Malm bedside 2 drawer chests and two of the 6 drawer chests....in October 2005 and they are still in excellent condition, even after 2 house moves.

They are doing the bigger 4 draw ones in ikea lakeside for £40. Great price for a excellent product. I got 2 last night, hot.

Heat added!!

Can anyone beat my time of 55 minutes to build the 3 drawer Malm?

you could just do it in another room then move it?

Do the drawers in an assembly line and you'll be quicker

I think it goes without saying that ikea products are well built. I've been buying ikea products for 12 years and the quality is superb, everytime.

excellent quality
