Tips for Shopping at IKEA
IKEA is a store where you can find everything you need to decorate your home. Whether you are setting up a new home or renovating, whether you are on a tight budget or want to make the most of limited space, IKEA is the furniture store to visit.
What’s more, stylish and attractive pieces of furniture are available at low prices. And IKEA flat pack furniture assembly is quite easy and hassle-free. In this post, we share some practical tips for shopping at IKEA. Keep this in mind to save your precious time and money.
Measure Your Room
Before you head to IKEA, be sure to measure your space and note them down on a piece of paper. Or simply pull up your phone and jot down the measurements on a notes app.
You don’t want to end up buying a sofa or a dining table that won’t fit your space.
Study the IKEA Store Map
Each IKEA store is divided into 2 separate sections – the Showroom and the Marketplace.
They could either be on the same floor or separate floors. Take your time to study the map and look out for shortcuts.
It’s important to know how to navigate an IKEA store. On the store map, you’ll find that there are shortcuts that you could take to bypass walking the entire Marketplace or Showroom.
If you’re looking for children’s furniture, take a shortcut and head straight to children’s furniture, etc.
Plan for Multiple Trips if You’re Decorating Multiple Rooms
Whether you are moving houses or renovating the entire place, trying to decorate the entire home could be daunting. Take your time to save money and ensure you choose the best pieces that won’t end up in the bin.
So make your first trip for inspiration and to get ideas, and plan a separate shopping trip.
IKEA stores are designed as a journey. So, you could simply wander through the Showroom, click pictures and get ideas. Then, hit the Marketplace to grab some essentials like cutting boards and bath towels.
Hit back home, clear your head, identify the products you want to buy and hit back the store on a fine morning to pick up all the big flat pack furniture assembly products.
Get an IKEA Family Card
It’s free to join and offers some exclusive discounts and deals. Anyone can join this loyalty programme. Simply look for the orange kiosk when you enter the store or sign up online.

“From start to finish the service was excellent. JMP rang me to confirm the item was on order and that installation could be arranged immediately. Delivery was speedy and the installation arranged the same day. Ken from the installation Company was excellent and knew the product inside out. He coped with my many enquiries and the finished product is excellent. I recommend this trampoline and the service. Ordered Friday – it arrived and was installed on Tuesday!! Thanks to all.”

“‘Thank you SO MUCH. The lovely gentleman has just been here and sorted out my table, it was a case of making some adjustments to the main table top and lining it all up again, which he spent lots of time on to get it absolutely perfect. I can’t thank you enough for sorting this out for me and the nicest surprise was when I asked him about payment, and he said that you were taking care of it! Thank you, the service I’ve had from you from start to end has been amazing and I would definitely recommend you and use you for my furniture needs in the future.”
