Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by I've bought ten of these now! The fact that I've gone on buying these until I had ten of them says it all really. My spare room is lined with them all round its walls, and everything is much more tidily stored as a consequence. The instructions could have been a bit clearer, and I think the estimated construction time is overoptimistic, but I got the gist of them very quickly. One detail that wasn't obvious until I was building my first set is that three of the shelves are actually adjustable - this gives considerable scope for varying the width of shelves according to their intended use. 21 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value product Easy to assemble, sturdy enough to hold many books of varying sizes, instructions easy to follow and no parts missing or damaged - a steal at the quality and price - well done John Lewis. 14 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality and useful item. Easy to put together and well worth the money. Smart piece of furniture. 07 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Like the finished article, trickier to put together than hoped We really like our purchase and it looks great. Putting the product together was trickier than expected particularly putting the shelves on. What they sit on seems very insecure but to be fair once up and running the bookcase is more than sturdy. Overall happy with product now the pain of putting together is over. 24 June 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks good and sturdy This bookcase is great value for money - ours is ladenw ith books and seems strong and sturdy 16 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Cost Effective Case for Books Assembly of the Dexter Tall Wide Bookcase is straightforward with clear concise instructions. It is advisable to anchor it back to the wall with bracket provided. The shelves are wide enough to accommodate lever arch files if required and the adjustable shelf height will allow all 5 shelves to be used in that manner. This is unusual and not a feature of all bookcases. The finish of the boards is good and the colour is of the currently pleasing Scandi look. This all represents good value for money 14 April 2015
