Ikea stores sell a wide range of home furnishings, decor, storage, lighting and appliances, often at lower prices than similar stores. Much of the furniture from Ikea requires self-assembly after purchase.
The furniture category features pieces for almost any room in the house, including the bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom and outdoor spaces. The upholstered furniture such as sofas and arm chairs do not require assembly, while items such as bookshelves and storage units often require assembly.
Shoppers looking to remodel a kitchen have options to outfit the entire room at Ikea. The stores sell appliances, countertops, cupboards and faucets. Cupboard bases come in a variety of styles, allowing consumers to customize the kitchen layout. Similar options are available for bathrooms with everything from storage shelves to bathroom vanities.
Ikea stores feature a variety of textiles to finish the home. Products include rugs, curtains, bed linens, blankets, dining textiles and pillows.
Ikea also offers a wide selection of home products in style that keep kids in mind. The products use bright colors and whimsical patterns that appeal to children.
The layout of Ikea stores typically winds customers through displays of all of the products. Customers write down the products that interest them. After seeing the displays, customers enter the market area where they collect the items they want to purchase.
