Good price!

The description on Homebase website is wrong, this item is actually solid wood not wood effect... Everyone take note before voting!


These are also available from Argos (sister company) if preferred but slightly cheaper @ £92.79

As nictry has pointed out, the 4+2 drawers are actually £77.49, the price i have put is for the slightly bigger 5+2!

What about the insides if the drawers? Are they strong?

What about the insides if the drawers? Are they strong?



From the Questions and Answers section for the same query on the Argos page -

A customer answers "Having bought a set of these recently, I can confirm that the drawer sides and backs were supplied as plastic coated chipboard and not MDF. These are not solid wood as described in the catalogue. The inner base of the drawers is thin plywood and will probably not last too long, but these drawers came with some little screw fixings, which attach the drawer base to the front and back of the drawers, which is a good idea and should make them last a little longer."

Another customer answers "The drawer fronts are stained pine (block-board), the sides and back are covered chipboard and the bottoms are 2mm MDF, the runners are metal with ball bearings. If treated carefully, they should be ok, but are not particularly sturdy and twist out of shape easily. The top and sides of the main body are pine and the back is 2mm MDF. Whole thing is light and flimsy, so delicate touch is needed (not for kid's room!)"

Member of Argos staff answers "Hello, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query regarding the Living Nordic 5+2 Drawer Chest - Pine, I can confirm the base and the back of the drawers are made from MDF.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A."

Ohhhh silly me was looking at the bigger ones (5+2) lol!

£100 for a chest, that's just wood effect? Dear me.

Got a similar one from b and q for £30... Wouldn't say it was worth that!

No we have these in the kids rooms but larger.Runners are poor and drawer bases are very thin.Always having to fix bases and runners.Handles always need superglueing back on.Also very shallow and don't fit much.Id avoid.I also bought them assembled so cant blame my diy.
