I got this too and guessing as many real world opinions on here help if it comes up again. Not very deep or wide compared to say an IKEA kallax. But that's why I bought it, old Victorian terrace with alcoves too small for a kallax. Price is about right for the quality. The pieces field solid enough and the unit as a whole also feels strong enough. All the sections match up well. The finish of the pieces also match but that's where you can see the lesser quality compared to an IKEA product I put this more in line of Argos products say in that regard. They do scrimp here and there. Example is, uses the same locking screws / locks most flatpack does nowadays, except this has stickers to hide the scree lock bit, rather than say hiding them in the build or plastic caps. Has 4 backing plates for the cubes without the material boxes. Ease of build 4/5 Quality 3/5 Durability (betting about 3/5 Value for money 4/5
Its not bad. The 'drawers' are nothing more than flimsy fabric boxes but they hold a decent amount, we use ours for knick knacks, in terms of the size of the individual cubes..you can fit a standard sized book standing up and have about 5cm of gap left at the top. It's quite nice used as a decorative piece more than for storage. It was easy to build and feels sturdy once in position. The box colours aren't the best and they look a bit drab, should be alleviated without much issue in a decently decorated room as it's quite slimline and quite easily 'blends' into the background. I would say the build quality probably justifies the price point overall, especially considering the location I put it in. Be mindful that the unit is very narrow and slim. Only 55cm wide and about 22-24cm deep I think.
Have you received it, is it nice?
Thank you was looking for something for my sons room!
Would love this in black or grey, heat nevertheless (y)

IDon't think he's a member of the short police, Probably more of a brigade or militia. There isn't a universal measurement of just short. More of a loose collection of estimations.
THIS. I had bought some similar shelf and it's very flimsy, small and not very useful in general. Just get a kallax (even a used one) and be happy. Oh, and it's technically true that it's freestanding but no way would I trust mine without an anchor. Kallax on the other hand is way wider and gives me 0 worries.
Habitat Squares Plus from Argos. Good quality and reviews state it takes 12” vinyls?
IKEA Kallax is still the way to go

Two boxes rather than drawers, but decent price IMO. I do have a few without the legs and as far as I'm aware I paid less at IKEA and B&Q, but I've got them on sale. I think this is quite on a small side, at least for me, but may suit others.

Placed an order with them for around £120 this morning. Just received an email saying the person who paid for the order to message them on Facebook and give them the code from the email. Seems a bit odd..?
First thing first, Great deal . I was going to order and pick up a few items I definitely did not need. The sheep was my main target, but unfortunately/fortunately the price has gone up to £15.49. This made me reevaluate whether or not my unused toilet rolls really need to be put on display.
Thought I was the only one this was happening too.
Don’t be boring! These are also great if you have wasted space in your cupboards as you can hang them from the top and it allows you to store more stuff underneath :)

Yeah I did some maths when I was looking, my electric is 17p kwh and I use an electric heater at 2kw for around 5 hours so 34p hr or £1.70 a day and to be honest the heat that comes off it isn't great I don't think it's a very good one, takes ages to heat up. From past experience the heat off these gas heaters is instant and just seems warmer and I'll probably use one bar at 1.4kw so should save a bit hopefully, I will find out soon enough, the condensation may be an issue though but as my shed is well vented it shouldn't be too bad, if it doesn't work out I'll keep it as a back up if we ever run out of oil for the CH as we did one Christmas, that wasn't fun!! I don't use the heater every day but most days and over a qtr is costs 1.70x91.25 (3 months) £155, hopefully this at 7kw a day will save me a 3rd one bottle should last me 20 days and I'll need 4 and half bottles per qtr so 4.5 x 24 £108. Also I think the guy down the road does 11kg for £21 so it may be cheaper
Unless you dont have mains electric, absolutely no cost advantage getting one of these hulking things over an electric heater. Electric heaters have less to go wrong, are smaller and don't put out vapour or more dangerously, carbon monoxide.
Simply because it is... you buy 1 Kwh of electricity and essentially very close to 100% of that turns to heat as about 3.6MJ. The thermal efficiency losses have already happened in the generation and the distribution of it, that's where it is different to other fuels. When you burn other fuels, a more significant amount of those losses are after you have bought it as you burn it because the heating appliances are less efficient and/or go up the flue. There is an ocean of more technical explanations online. Alternatively you could get more than 100% efficiency with a heat pump!
Weird how they haven't changed the looks of these much, OK well the one in my house had some wood effect I'm sure.
Need to look up energy loss then. 100% energy efficient = nothing in existence. Let alone an electric heater! Basic GCSE Science will teach you about energy transference principles. Why do ppl keep saying the same as you? An electric heater DOES NOT provide 1:1 input to output ratio. Because nowt does.

sent mine back when it arrived. very flimsy and wouldn't take much weight. Wanted it for tools in the garage but more suitable for storing all the reusable bags for life i seem to collect
Some comments have been deleted. If you had seen them, then I suggest you would have probably choked on your Pimms too...ruined my crocheing it did.
No, its just real worldly. Where delicate flowers need stay in their protected environments. These cabinets are that flimsy you`d even struggle to use them for that. I generally rate workzone equipment quite highly for DIY use and have loads of their tools etc but this is a genuine waste of money. Spend a bit more and get a good sturdy unit from Machinemart.
Better Buy is a metal office stationery cupboard, loads on ebay.
Can I store an unconscious body in here?

I can't find the order in my amazon account, so i must have ordered it from a different account. It was from this store here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/VASAGLE-Industrial-Multifunctional-Sturdy-HSR47BX/dp/B07K8GG779/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=vasagle+rack&qid=1612371927&sr=8-13 Currently £80+, and I definitely haven't paid that much. But it might have been around £60. So this is definitely a great deal for the same product with a different label
I've not bought it, but i found this on Amazon Coat Rack Stand, Free Standing Hall Tree Entryway Storage Shelf, Multi-functional Metal Entryway Coat Hanger Stand Organizer For Home, Office, Bedroom, Entryway and Hallway 【UK IN STOCK】: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools No reviews on this one, but at least it's a starting place for you. Hope it helps.
