8 Drawer Dresser Ikea

I’ve gotten the question about the difference between IKEA pallid and white discolor wholly a particle. The questions mostly theme from my nursery dresser, which is the IKEA Hemnes 8-drawer dresser in white stain, and it’s available for $249. I conception I’d share the difference between pure and white sully. I own pieces of furniture in both finishes so I feel like I can offer modest insight into the matter. Because it’s obviously very controversial, and I’m certain populate lose sleep over the painstaking decision between the two. I’m obtainable to tackle innocent first and then move on to white stain. WHITE White is more of a creamlike, off-white and has a semi-gloss finish. My home office workstation and inclining one, the former 5×5 Expedit (now invite Kallax), is white. You can acquaint the contention between the creaminess of the IKEA white and the bright white storage boxes, as well as the ultra white picture I used on my line cabinet, especially if you look at the file cabinet handles. Owen’s nursery room shelving unit, the 2X4 Kallax, is also fortunate. There are a few posts out in blogland that touch on color matching the IKEA white to specific paint colors. Here’s a really good post by One Little Project. She matches the IKEA white color to different brands of paint. And DecorChick! had the white color matched and shares the hide formula here. Why am I bringing this up? Well, if you’re liking me and live 2.5 hours from the nearest IKEA (but not for long– IKEA Indianapolis is coming in fall 2017!) you need to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting and that the item you want is in stock. Or maybe you live near an IKEA but don’t want to buy a piece of furniture, lug it home, assemble it, and then decide that it’s not the right shelter of white. So if you’re trying to see if IKEA white will match another piece of furniture in your room, you can grab a paint sample and see if it’ll work. WHITE STAIN White dye is more of a bright, true white. It also has less of a showy than white. I’d say that it’s more of an eggshell finish. Since it’s a stain, a little bit of the pine woodgrain tell through but it’s not awfully noticeable. Plus, I kind of preference it since it adds a inconsiderable bit of handwriting to the dresser. I went with white stain Hemnes dresser in Owen’s nursery because his crib is a bright white, and I wanted them to look stick. Plus, the trim in his room is painted ultra white, and I knew the happy stain would look better next to the baseboards compared to the white finish. Yeah, the nursery closet shelving unit is white, but the doors on his press are closed more than they’re undissembling, and the Kallax isn’t available in favorite stain. Here’s a closer look at the drawers. As you can see, the wood cochineal is barely perceivable. Here are some things to consider when choosing between pallid and white stain. If you’re wanting to use the dresser in a nursery and have it double as a diversify station, which I highly recommend long having a dresser AND and a changing seems liking a waste of space to me, you may want to consider some things. Since the white has a semi-annotate finish, it’ll be easier to wipe down. If you really want the white stain, but are still troubled, you can always put a visible cover of poly on the top to help with easier clean up. We didn’t add poly to ours and wiping it down has never been a proposition. Another thing to consider is that it’ll be easier to touch up the white with some color-match semi-illustrate paint. I tried finding a blush match for the white dye but couldn’t find anything. I’m going to call the IKEA support desk and see if they can help me out with that. Between the two different symbol of finishes, I feel like the white is more persistent than the white stain. There’s some small dents on the top of Owen’s dresser. The white stain is starting to rub off a contracted where we stand to change his diaper. My white finish workstation has held up fairly well over the past few years. There’s a coupler of small scratches that have taken off the paint but there’s no dents. Which do you prefer– favorite or innocent stain?

So … I am so frustrated with the “pure” at Ikea. We have a white Kallax and a white Billy. Not “white stain”, but “white”. They match perfect and have the same cleanable/durable foliated type perfect. I path to Ikea yesterday to pick up the 8 draughtsman Hemnes dresser. I knew I wanted the same “white” to match my other Ikea “pure” pieces. It looked a little yellowish, but DH indubitable me it was the lighting in the store. I took it home and took a piece out of the box and laid it across my Kallax and Billy … and sure enough the “white” Hemnes is NOT the same “white” as the other “white” Ikea pieces (Kallax and Billy). It is definatly more yellow and a little more shinny too. WTF Ikea?!?!?!? I’m ok if you want to have two different whites (“white” and “white stain”), but you need to keep the “fortunate” uniform across the various Ikea lines. Anyone else have this proposition?

I also need to know the height of the gap at the bottom of the dresser (the length of the legs). I called IKEA and they were not able to assist me beyond the information that’s on the website– I’d like to companion stable it will suitable before I drive a thirst way to pick it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by anthony11 from Be cautious Bought one of these for my son. Unlike the Nordli, which is a cruel joke, this can be assembled as shown with the instructions. As always with IKEA kits, I recommend laying out all the hardware in advance on a loss-proof superficiary, grouping each type and matching counts against the instructions. With this piece I couldn’t find the instructions and direction online. At first I found a PDF that showed different hardware; after more searching I found one that correlated with what I have — it would seem that they radically changed the design over era. I found the printed instructions only when tearing the box down for recycling; they were hidden. Again as always with IKEA, choose among the conformable parts carefully, especially if there are two sizes of wood pegs. Use a diminutive amount of possessed glue on any joined between untreated wood surfaces, and when inserting screws — this dramatically improves the solidity of the assembled piece. Specific to this portion, when tapping pegs into the drawer fronts be careful to push them in fully. I failed to do this on one drawer, with the result that when tapping the sides down so they’d be flush, the pegs motive the particleboard to bulge out in front, causing an region of the lamination to languish off. I put a white sticker over it, but it’s not the same white and looks flinky. And IKEA of course won’t sell us parts. Date published: 2017-05-05

Hi I am looking into getting the 8 drawer HEMNES, 2 HEMNES nightstands, and the 6 drawer HEMNES dresser. The only problem is the 6 drawer ONLY comes in White and all the other ones come in both white stain and white. I was thinking I wanted to go with the darling paint but I am torn that I feel resembling the 6 draughtsman will halt out like a sore thumb with the pure stain coverlet. Do you think that will happen? Also you aforesaid that the favorite is more durable? I was cogitative the white discolor would be which is why I was going to go with that but maybe we will have to get all the furniture in hoary if its more durable.
