I needed extra room to place cookbooks, kitchen "junk drawer" items and snack foods, and this rack was exactly what I needed. The baskets were a darker brown color that what appears in the picture, but I was more pleased with the darker coloring. The only downfall is that two of the wire shelves were too small to fit in their position, but it turns out that I prefer to not have them anyway as I needed a larger "gap" to stand my tall cookbooks on the side wire rack area. I would recommend this product.
The unit arrived with no damage and all the parts! That's a good start for any project that arrives by truck. The instructions required a bit of intuitive thinking but nothing an average IQ couldn't figger out. It went together on the first try with a little bolt swapping here and there but the fit was good. It's an attractive end piece for the blank side of a black refrigerator. Saved having to install an expensive end panel or cabinet unit. The wire shelving is open grid so be prepared for not being able to put small items or items with legs on those. Well worth the price.
For the money, these can't be beat. I have loaded them up and have had no problems with quality or how they hold up and they look very nice. My only caveat is that the shelves on either side of the baskets are not solid, they are open wire, so you can't set small knick knacks in there, and depending on the size of the item, it could "tilt" if one side of it dips between the wires instead of all corners planting solidly on a wire. I'm sure that's why these are not as expensive as units with solid shelves, and I think it's well worth the trade-off as it's easy to work around this. I bought three sets and lined one wall with them--looks great.
Bought this to fit a tight space in a small apartment walk-in closet with no room or budget for far more expensive wooden dresser. Measured and remeasured before ordering to make sure the unit would fit and voila! A perfect fit. Took Jak75's advice about leaving the bolts a little loose then squaring up the unit by attaching the wood top first. Brilliant. Based on the other reviewers who had problems I thought I would need to use a power screwdriver on the lid....but I did not! Only thing I did do was to take a pair of strong shears and trim off the sticking out ends and loose fibers inside and outside of the drawers before loading my clothing. Do follow the directions and wipe each piece down with a clease soft cloth before assembling. There is some kind of dry grey powder on the metal components. By using honeycomb plastic dividers in the smaller baskets and stacking clothing neatly on each side shelf I was able to store a massive pile of clothing and fltsam and jetsam for my husband and myself. Naturally, however while we both got one side of shelving, I got 3 of the 5 basets.....LOL
Purchased this for my office, not kitchen, but it was what I needed and it fits perfect for little ends of items. I also have little baskets (Cotton) that go on the other shelves where I need them; paper clips, etc and the larger baskets that came with it I have my paper etc that I use for the computer and desk. Love it!!!
We needed extra storage for a bedroom, and this piece provides far more than we imagined. Each basket holds a sizable amt of goodies, while the open areas also provide extra storage as well as display space. It easily holds as much as a couple of cabinets, yet is far more attractive AND it's portable.
originally ordered one but time I checked out a two appeared in there. called and they were very helpful. well when I got them I like them so much I kept the extra one and set it up. now I have plenty of room for things while the room appears really nice. Happy for that mistake.
I had to have help putting this together because I am "tools" challenged. It went together very well and I get more compliments on it than almost everything else I have in my room. The baskets serve the purpose but they are flimsy. I most likely will change them out down the road but for now they are fine.
