How to Get the Most Out of Your Trip to Ikea
The big, blue Swedish furniture store that we know as IKEA is somewhat of a maze, a grueling test for couples and a brilliant place to find home ware and household items. Usually located in a remote location, a trip to IKEA may take up your whole day, so it is to your advantage to make the most out of your IKEA experience.

Think about what you need to get.Identify what needs improvement, then brainstorm to target potential additions. Proceed room-by-room and visualize (with your partner or friend) a new face that will pleasantly greet you as you enter, one that will provide happiness and a spark of delight.
Create a mental or physical list of items you wish to buy.Think of this as a homeware exclusive Christmas list, however, in this list you shouldinclude all measurements; this significantly reduces the chance of your well picked out future purchase looking odd in your home or worse, not fitting at all.
Locate your local IKEA and begin your trip there.IKEA stores can be easily located using your national IKEA website and using the store locator.
- If you're traveling by car, be sure to clear out as much space in your vehicle to minimize the chance of a second trip, or having to pay for delivery.
Arrive at the store and arm yourself with two complimentary pencils, a measuring tape and a purchase form.Noting down product numbers, sizes and prices of potential purchases will make price comparison and finding your product easier. Be sure to compare measurements with the wish list your created prior to arriving at the store.
Make a draft trip.This is your warm up; prep your mind and switch on your home ware thinking cap. Visually skim through your areas of interest and note down items which catch your eye and familiarize yourself with the layout. Once you find yourself at the exit/entrance, prepare for round two.
Make the final trip.At this point, you'll have a rough idea of what items you'll buy and where you need to go to find them. If you wish to buy larger items (or several smaller items) get a shopping cart. Alternatively, if you only need to pick up a few smaller items then just pick up a yellow shopping bag.
- Head to your areas of interest and weigh up the pros and cons of each individual purchase. Bear in mind the importance of pre-existing furniture and accessories that will have an impact on how your new product will look in your home.
Take a break (optional).When you reach the mid-point of your final trip, you may realize that you have stirred up quite an appetite, if this is the case, it would be brilliant timing to make use of the in-store restaurant which offers unlimited re-fills on drinks, free Wi-Fi and is notoriously cheap.
- Shopping on an empty stomach is ill-advised. So, when the debate with your partner about table leg styles is becoming increasingly fierce, take time to sit down and discuss the matter over a beverage of your choice, a coffee, for instance.
Check your wish list and make sure you have gotten everything that you came to Ikea to buy.In the event that you did not find what you came to buy, use the what you saw during your visit as a guide and inspiration in the quest for your ideal product.
Head to the checkout area and purchase your items.Double check the items in your shopping cart/bag to ensure that the product numbers, colours and measurements are all correct.
Opt to having your items delivered for a fee or pack the items into your car.For smaller purchases, you can simply take a taxi, train or bus back, without any hassle and helping the environment.
Arrive at home and nestle your new purchase in the ideal place.Build your purchase with the provided instructions and remember to clean any kitchen ware prior to storing it.
