50 reviews of Ikea in English
I Love IKEA! I got PAX Wardrobe from there and it is absolutely great quality! I think I will have it forever, even better so, the woman in the shop recommended this company to me that built it for a very reasonable price as me and wife just couldn't have tackled it on our own. They were called Flat Pack Attack and took great care of us, I would always favor IKEA over other furniture outlets.
Ikeas bring out the rebel in me: all those arrows telling you which way you should go round the store makes me deliberately want to go in the opposite direction. Power to the people!!
Cheap stuff - some of it stylish, none of it unique. Great for student flats. Good place to buy Swedish nibbles with unpronounceable names when you get the craving for Swedish food.
This is a difficult place to review. It does have a good cafe which provides good quality food at a reasonable price. On the other hand it is Ikea. This means it is huge, lacking in humanity and as you walk round you perspire out your soul. The lack of a smiling face or kind word alongside the cattle signs lead to irritability and ennui. If the process goes on too long homicidal and later suicidal urges start to uncoil and its time to leave.

IKEA is my preferred store for purchasing furniture!. All the furniture is set out well for you to see and they have everything from bed's to cutlery!.
The only downside is that the delivery is massively overpriced. It costs us £30 to get a delivery which is shocking!.
Speaking of house expenses, I recently had a faucet malfunction, so I figured it's about time to replace a couple of things around the house that has been irking me.
I bought a rug here yesterday and I do have my eye on a new sink that they have on sale at the clearance isle. The only problem is that it is on clearance, so hopefully it'll still be there when I come back.
I've upped my review to 3* by the way because of their excellent cinnamon buns. Mmmmm!
Some people like to knock Ikea as flat pack junk, but I think it’s really good value for money. There’s a huge range of furniture for sale and it’s really good quality. I like that they use real wood instead of chipboard in a lot of things. Their instructions are a bit difficult to understand though!
The shop is massive, and you collect your purchases while you shop so you can take them home that day. There’s also a cafe which sells a very limited range of stuff but at a good price.
Ikea must be my favourite furniture store. It has so much choice that you can spend so long in that store just picking out a shelf for example as they just have so much - different colours, materials, shapes..
No trip to Ikea is complete without a visit to the cafe. The food is so cheap and really good quality it is just too good to miss.
as ed bryne said, ikea is just like a bed - easy to get into, f*ing difficult to get out of!
this one is no exception - go there and buy furniture that everyone else has…and avoid the meatballs…
although, i will admit…a part of me wants to go back in there…if only to hide in one of the display wardrobes, and wait for someone to open it…
all that said, it’s the perfect place to kit out your first student flat (it’ll look just like mine did!).
Where did we go before ikea??? its pretty much what you would expect. its laid out like a bit of a maze but its great to see everything they have on offer.
u always end up spending more than you plan and even though most things are well priced you will occasionally find something (kitchen stuff usually) that you can get cheaper elsewhere so just be carefull. the cafe is really good and fantastic value. happy shopping.
If you are going in this store, BE PREPARED to give you loads of time…! As you would find yourself time going past you too quickly…
As i have been in this store, and about 3 to 4 hours have flow past me too quickly… I love going to this store, as it ranges from everything you name it, like kitchen, kitchen equipments, crockery’s cutlery’s, such as storages etc. Items for the Living room, like television stand, tables, storage’s, seats, couches, rugs picture on the wall, etc, even they do the gardening stuffs, ornaments for gardens, even something for the office space, like desk, or filing cabinets, letter racks, etc etc, even the bedroom, they sell mattresses, beds, pillows, duvets curtains, bed covers, even something for the hallway, like a mirror, rugs, picture on the wall, and they practically sell everything. Even lighting / shades
Even they have a cafe area on the upper area, while you rest to have a wee break and the foods/drinks are well cheap and very good price, it is like a bargain in there.
Also on seasonal events, they do sell xmas lines, like xmas lights and decorations etc.
Also I love shopping in their “swedish” shop which ranges of swedish foods, and I do love their meatballs, with their gravy, and ask for a bit of red lingonberry sauce, and they are so DELICIOUS!!! You should give them a try!!!
Kids are great in this store, as they can be able to roam anywhere in the store, even they do provide a creche place for them. But I rather to have them with me, and let them roam the store, they can be able to jump in the display’s own bed, and they can pretend to be sleeping, or hiding in the wardrobes, while I play peek for them…
Or even when we are in the kitchen area, and we sit on the display’s kitchen’s dining tables, and we sit, and pretend to be eating our “breakfast” and enjoy making a fool of ourselves, and we do enjoy being entertained…
They get much more fun than being stuck in the creches!!!
Also their toilets area are great always immaculate, and tidy.
Even the staff are great to help, but at the busy period, the staff tend to be even more busier…!
You can’t really go wrong with Ikea furniture, it’s mostly reasonably priced, fairly sturdy and not really all that difficult to put together and you will almost certainly find something you like.
I love the market place which is full of lots of unusual Xmas decorations and lights, many already reduced in price.
The restaurant has the feel of a work canteen, but the food is very reasonably priced & of course with your loyalty card you can have free tea/ coffee on week days. The food, while not being gourmet fayre, is always popular with kids & when they get bored they can wander over to the play area which has a large TV showing cartoons. Breakfasts are the best deal without a doubt.
Before this Ikea opened the nearest to me was in Edinburgh so this has been a god send.It’s an ideal place for furniture that looks good and is of a reasonable price,especially good if your just starting out with your first house and don’t have too much money to spend.They do some really good lighting and pictures and the bedding is always nice too.I think you will always find something a wee bit different from Ikea.They have a couple of eating places here too,there’s the wee hotdog place at the exit.This is quite nice if your looking for a quick cheap snack but the restaurant is better quality food and is just as cheap.I really love their meatballs and gravy…yum!!!They also have a little swedish food shop at the exit which sells unusal items and stocks Kopperberg cider,I found it in there years ago before it became really popular.
This Ikea store has all the same items as every other Ikea. The layout seems better than the other stores that I have been in and if you follow the prescribed route it is very easy to find everything you want. There are two places to buy food too. The first is a full restaurant which serves perfectly edible and cheap food for before your shopping trip. Afterwards there is the hotdog and ice cream stand after the checkouts. They do not however monitor the pick up points very well which means it can be very difficult to load large items on busy days as there are no spare pickup points and you are not allowed to take your trolley to the main car park.
I have been dragged to Ikea on more occasions than I care to remember always with the same result, I get kranky, claustrophobic, and end up with an overwhelming urge to do unsavoury things with Swedish meatballs to whoever it was that designed the layout of these shops.
I’ve always gone along with the crowd, but always in more of a happy-go-lucky kind of a way rather than an “I’m cattle” kind of a way which is how Ikea seems intent on treating you. On the plus side they’re used to be a ball swamp for the kids to go into in one of the corners of the shop … but I think it’s gone now.
You always end up coming out of Ikea with more than you intended to get! Some of the bits and pieces they sell are absolute bargains - glasses, cutlery, wrapping paper, plants.
The best bit after fighting your way through the queues and checkouts is getting a hotdog or ice cream (or both!). And the food shop is a wee gem too!
It can get very very busy through, especially at weekends and in the build up to Christmas. They have good discounts when the sales are on though, so its well worth the visit if you can put up with the hustle and bustle!
i love ikea. The stuff they sell is great have lots of stuff at home that was bought from here. My work also use things from here. The stuff they sell for children is great quallity. The food they sell in the cafe are is good and cheap. The only thing about Ikea is that it is a case of stack em high. It isn’t a fancy store but it is massive and takes a bit of time to walk about and find what you are looking for. The furniture they sell is very cheap but is quite high quality.
Before the days of Ikea in Edinburgh and Glasgow, I actually made my boyfriend drive down to Newcastle so I could see what all the fuss was about. It is a cool place to pick up really good priced items. The place is HUGE, and they have all the home departments you would expect. My favourite is the kitchen shop. Anything you need at a much better price than the department stores etc. OK, the quality may not be amazing, bt you get what you pay for and I have never had a problem with anythig I have bought. With some stuff you dont need to pay a fortune, it’s just basic stuff you need for yor house. They have loads of tills to keep things moving but I am sure at peak weekend times it can be a bit of a nightmare so I go midweek. Online and catalogue are great for checking stuff out before you go.
People often complain that their quality is not exceptional - but at those prices you cannot expect much more. Ikea makes practical modern furniture affordable to all. I have purchased flat packs from MFI, ARGOS, Focus etc - and none compare to Ikea’s innovative ideas and modern designs.
great for cheap modern and stylish designs. thing i love about it is it lasts as long as the fashion, no point in spending loads of money on something that will look dated and out of fashion in a few years.
Yes its flat pack but thats half the fun!
Visiting Ikea is a great day out - Excellent food hall! hot dogs are amazing and Breakfasts are unbelievably cheap and great tasting, sometimes its the only way i get my boyfriend to agree to our little trips there.
