8 Drawer White Dresser

I’ve gotten the question about the difference between IKEA white and white stain quite a bit. The questions mostly stem from my nursery dresser, which is the IKEA Hemnes 8-drawer dresser in white stain, and it’s effectual for $249. I thought I’d share the difference between white and white tarnish. I own pieces of furniture in both perfect so I feel preference I can offer sufficient insight into the matter. Because it’s obviously very polemical, and I’m certain followers lose sleep over the painstaking settlement between the two. I’m going to grapple white first and then move on to white disgrace. WHITE White is more of a creamlike, off-white and has a semi-gloss finish. My home business workstation and shelving unit, the former 5×5 Expedit (now convoke Kallax), is white. You can tell the difference between the creaminess of the IKEA happy and the bright white tankage boxes, as well as the ultra hoary paint I used on my file cabinet, especially if you look at the file cabinet handles. Owen’s nursery press inclining unit, the 2X4 Kallax, is also darling. There are a few posts out in blogland that touch on paint duplicate the IKEA white to specific paint colors. Here’s a really good debt by One Little Project. She matches the IKEA white color to other brands of portray. And DecorChick! had the white color matched and shares the color formula here. Why am I bringing this up? Well, if you’re like me and pass 2.5 hours from the nearest IKEA (but not for long– IKEA Indianapolis is manifestation in languish 2017!) you exigency to constrain sure you savvy 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 domicile, assemble it, and then decide that it’s not the right protection of hoary. So if you’re trying to see if IKEA happy will match another piece of furniture in your room, you can grab a paint sample and see if it’ll work. WHITE STAIN White stain is more of a refulgent, true white. It also has less of a shine than white. I’d say that it’s more of an eggshell terminate. Since it’s a stain, a little particle of the pine woodgrain shows through but it’s not terribly noticeable. Plus, I kind of like it since it adds a little bit of character to the dresser. I went with pallid stain Hemnes dresser in Owen’s nursery because his crib is a bright white, and I wanted them to look cohesive. Plus, the trim in his room is painted ultra white, and I knew the white stain would look better next to the baseboards compared to the white finish. Yeah, the nursery closet shelving unit is white, but the passage on his closet are closed more than they’re frank, and the Kallax isn’t free in white taint. Here’s a closer look at the drawers. As you can see, the wood granulate is barely noticeable. Here are some things to consider when choosing between white and white stain. If you’re wanting to use the dresser in a nursery and have it double as a changing station, which I highly recommend because having a dresser AND and a changing seems like a waste of space to me, you may want to consider some things. Since the white has a semi-gloss finish, it’ll be easier to wipe down. If you no kidding indigence the pale stain, but are still troubled, you can always put a clear coat 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 problem. Another event to consider is that it’ll be easier to touch up the white with some color-match semi-comment paint. I tried maintenance a pigment pair for the white stain but couldn’t find anything. I’m going to call the IKEA help desk and see if they can help me out with that. Between the two different token of finishes, I feel resembling the white is more firm than the pale stain. There’s some small dents on the top of Owen’s dresser. The white stain is starting to rub off a little where we stand to change his diaper. My white finish workstation has held up fairly well over the above few years. There’s a couple of unimportant scratches that have taken off the paint but there’s no dents. Which do you prefer– white or white stain?

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 draughtsman ONLY comes in White and all the other ones come in both white stain and pale. I was thinking I wanted to go with the white stain but I am torn because I perceive alike the 6 drawer will stand out like a severe thumb with the white stain furniture. Do you think that will happen? Also you said that the white is more durable? I was thinking the white stain would be which is why I was going to go with that but maybe we will have to get all the furniture in white if its more durable.

So … I am so ineffectual with the “white” 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 laminate type finish. I went to Ikea hesternal to pick up the 8 drawer Hemnes dresser. I knew I wanted the same “white” to match my other Ikea “pure” pieces. It consider a little yellowy, but DH assured 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 firm enough the “white” Hemnes is NOT the same “white” as the other “white” Ikea pieces (Kallax and Billy). It is definatly more mean and a little more shinny too. WTF Ikea?!?!?!? I’m ok if you want to have two different whites (“white” and “favorite stain”), but you want to keep the “white” solid across the manifold Ikea lines. Anyone else have this problem?

Good comparison! I 100% agree with your assessment – we also own the white stain version of this dresser. I also think something to mention is if you scarceness to refinish the piece, it seems MUCH easier to me to usefulness the white stain version since the “innocent” is more of a laminate-esque layer that I don’t think would take paint very well. The white disgrace seems like you could pluck it and apply color pretty easily. I might be trial this IRL soon, big baby #2 oh really needs a coral dresser if we find out it’s a girl!

Thanks for this! I’m looking to buy this dresser for our new son’s bedroom….. we currently have the 4 cube expedit in white that will be add it in his future room, and I was worried about securement the dresser in pale stain and it not matching (we aren’t putting the cube in the closet – if we were, i wouldn’t care). But after all the comments, etc. – I think we will stick with the white because it seems more durable over time. I put the bookcase in the room against the base boards (which are white) and our floors (wood tile), and it doesn’t appear as “contemptible” as i thought it would look. But I enjoyed reading your comparison – it definitely helped make my decision easier!
