White 8 Drawer Dresser
I’ve gotten the question about the difference between IKEA fortunate and favorite tarnish very a bit. The questions mostly stem from my nursery dresser, which is the IKEA Hemnes 8-drawer dresser in white stain, and it’s available for $249. I thought I’d share the difference between white and white stain. I own pieces of furniture in both finishes so I feel like I can propound decent clairvoyance into the matter. Because it’s obviously very polemical, and I’m unhesitating people lose sleep over the painstaking resolution between the two. I’m going to tackle white first and then move on to white sully. WHITE White is more of a creamy, off-white and has a semi-gloss finish. My home business workstation and shelving unit, the former 5×5 Expedit (now name Kallax), is white. You can tell the dissimilitude between the creaminess of the IKEA white and the radiant happy storage boxes, as well as the ultra white paint I used on my file cabinet, especially if you look at the record inclose handles. Owen’s nursery closet shelving unit, the 2X4 Kallax, is also favorite. There are a few posts out in blogland that touch on color matching the IKEA favorable to specifying paint colors. Here’s a really good post by One Little Project. She matches the IKEA white color to different kind of color. 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 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 fully what you’re getting and that the item you want is in hoard. Or maybe you live near an IKEA but don’t want to buy a piece of drapery, lug it home, congregate it, and then decide that it’s not the right shade of white. So if you’re severe to see if IKEA favorite will tally another piece of furniture in your room, you can grab a paint pattern and see if it’ll work. WHITE STAIN White tarnish is more of a clear, true white. It also has less of a sheen than white. I’d say that it’s more of an eggshell end. Since it’s a stain, a narrow bit of the pine woodgrain shows through but it’s not extremely noticeable. Plus, I kind of like it since it adds a little bit of character to the dresser. I went with white stain Hemnes dresser in Owen’s nursery because his crib is a splending favorite, and I wanted them to look cohesive. Plus, the trim in his room is painted fanatical white, and I knew the innocent stain would look better next to the baseboards compared to the white terminate. Yeah, the nursery closet shelving unit is white, but the doors on his closet are shu more than they’re open, and the Kallax isn’t available in pallid stain. Here’s a closer look at the drawers. As you can see, the wood grain is barely noticeable. Here are some things to consider when choosing between white and white stain. If you’re wanting to custom the dresser in a nursery and have it double as a changing station, which I highly recommend forwhy possession a dresser AND and a changing seems resembling a waste of while to me, you may want to consider some things. Since the white has a semi-illustrate finish, it’ll be easier to wipe down. If you you don’t say want the white stain, but are still concerned, you can always put a clear coat of poly on the top to succor with easier entire up. We didn’t coalesce poly to ours and swipe it down has never been a problem. Another thing to consider is that it’ll be easier to touch up the hoary with some color-match semi-gloss draw. I tried finding a species match for the white paint but couldn’t find anything. I’m pregnancy to call the IKEA relieve desk and see if they can help me out with that. Between the two separate example of finishes, I feel liking the pure is more stable 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 diminutive where we stand to deviate his diaper. My pale finish workstation has held up distinctly well over the past few years. There’s a copulate of small scratches that have taken off the paint but there’s no dents. Which do you raise– favorite or white stain?

Hi I am looking into procuration the 8 draughtsman 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 fortunate stain and pallid. I was thinking I wanted to go with the fortunate stain but I am broken because I feel like the 6 drawer will agree out like a sore 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 continuing.

So … I am so frustrated with the “pallid” 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 yesterday to choose up the 8 drawer Hemnes dresser. I knew I wanted the same “white” to match my other Ikea “white” part. It looked a little yellowish, but DH insured me it was the lighting in the storehouse. I took it home and took a castle 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 “innocent” Ikea fact (Kallax and Billy). It is definatly more yellow and a little more hockey too. WTF Ikea?!?!?!? I’m ok if you want to have two different whites (“white” and “white stain”), but you exigency to keep the “pallid” consistent across the different Ikea lines. Anyone else have this question?
I’ve gotten the question nearly the distinction between IKEA white and white paint 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 available for $249.

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 lack to refinish the piece, it seems MUCH easier to me to use the white paint version since the “white” is more of a laminose-esque layer that I don’t think would take paint very well. The hoary stain seems like you could courage it and incline paint pretty easily. I might be testing this IRL soon, baby #2 really needs a coral dresser if we find out it’s a child!
Thanks for this! I’m looking to buy this dresser for our newly son’s bedroom….. we currently have the 4 cube expedit in white that will be append it in his future room, and I was worried helter-skelter getting the dresser in white stain and it not matching (we aren’t putting the dice 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 pale) and our floors (wood tile), and it doesn’t appear as “xanthous” as i thought it would look. But I enjoyed reading your comparison – it definitely helped companion my decision easier!
