The furniture do not seem as good as in the catalogues and the materials are usually cheap and not always of fine quality. Also you have to be 100 per cent sure that you have the skills to assemble the pieces sent but yet it is not going to be as easy as it seemed in the first place...
I like Ikea for selected items. When they have a sale usually it is a great sale and you can get tons of things for every room in the house. But I find that some things are too over priced for what they are. For instance, some of the furniture are not all that great and some have unfinished textures and are very simple and not the best quality but they can tend to be rather costly. Even some of the living room furniture like the sofas are not all that great in terms of quality but they aren't cheap for what they are. I like that the store has a restaurant we usually get the frozen yogurt and chicken hot dogs which are extremely cheap. The cinnamon buns are also really good. I don't like that there are not more exits, its almost like once you are in you are trapped, it just goes on and on. I also don't care for how you pick up your furnishing items, you basically have to do all the work yourself including going into the warehouse section and finding the correct boxes of stuff you need. Not to mention that many of their products don't come assembled and the instructions are not always great. I personally would shop at Ikea for small decorative items and for furnishing if I need to furnish a basement or spare room because not all the items are of top quality.
Going into an IKEA can be an experience since there's so much to look at, a kids area, a cafe, and a concession stand. However you can look online or skip straight to the area where you can pick out your furniture right away. The products are great quality, stylish and very affordable!
I love ikea! When it came to Canada I was iffy because I heard it was very expensive. But they actually had some really great deals! The quality of the furniture was amazing and easy to put together. It also had all the pieces! Even when I don’t have money I go to Ikea and walk around.
As a university student, IKEA was the first thought for furniture for my apartment. While there is a ton of variety to choose from, the prices have gone up significantly over the years while the quality has remained the same. A better alternative was to purchase furniture second hand.
My house is pretty much made of Ikea furniture at this point. It's goes together so easily, and providing you don't overload things like drawers the furniture always lasts. We've recently bought some Kallax storage items and they look brilliant in our living room. Would highly recommend
