Before you grease your elbows, preparing for some serious shopping around the battlefield that IKEA can be – and, let’s be honest, risk breaking up with your partner or never wanting to speak to your best friend again – let us give you a peek inside. April has lots of new, beautiful and practical offerings at our favourite Scandi superstore but sometimes, you’re better off going to IKEA with a clear idea of what you plan to pick up. Unless you’re in total browsing mood, you can save a lot of stress by heading straight down to the marketplace or, better still, make a beeline for the computers in the warehouse, grab your bits from the specific aisle/location and then plonk yourself down on the other side of the cash registers with a freshly warmed cinnamon roll. You’ll save yourself lots of money this way too.
If you’re anything like us, you’ll always take inspiration from lifestyle imagery – i.e. we need to see things in situ to fall in love. We want to see a chair not on its own on a jam-packed aisle but styled with the full kit and kaboodle. We make better buying decisions this way because we can see precisely how something might work. It’s the same way we always spot fashion finds from Penneys on other people, as opposed to in the shop itself.
Whatever you’re looking for, let us save you the trip (and the rows) by taking a look at this gallery first.
