Why You Can't Find The IKEA DETOLF Anymore And What To Get Instead

IKEA usually has everything you might need, from a convertible sofa to plenty of innovative storage solutions. However, sometimes the store discontinues a product that you may have been looking forward to buying, and that's the case with the DETOLF. A tall and slim glass cabinet that was often used to create a high-end display cabinet look, it's thought that the DETOLF has been discontinued. Though IKEA has not confirmed whether or not this is the case, the DETOLF is no longer available for sale on the IKEA website and is also currently available on Amazon. For many, including figure collectors, this is a huge blow.

Luckily, there is an alternative you can opt for if you're searching for a display cabinet — the BLÅLIDEN. Measuring just under 60 inches tall and 14 inches wide, the BLÅLIDEN is tall, slim, and ideal for narrow rooms. It comes in black or white and features four shelves. Priced at $79.99, this alternative product is currently the most similar model to the DETOLF.

However, there are still some differences between the two. While the DETOLF cabinet was glass all the way through, the BLÅLIDEN does have wooden edges in addition to a solid base like the DETOLF. Still, if you're looking for something to fill the gap, the BLÅLIDEN will definitely do this. While it isn't exactly the same, this top-rated IKEA product would still make a great display cabinet due to the fact it's glass-fronted and has glass sides, meaning the items within are fully visible from all angles.

Due to the edges being wood, we recommend choosing the white color option. Otherwise, the items within could be overshadowed by the dark edges. Another alternative is the BAGGEBO cabinet. Priced at $39.99, it measures just under 46 inches tall, making it a perfect option if you have lower ceilings. This model has three shelves and is approximately the same width as the BLÅLIDEN. Made from glass with white metal edging and a white metal base, it could be a better pick than the BLÅLIDEN if you have fewer items to decorate your China cabinet with.
