Not only is Ikea home to useful and affordable household items, the website has a few tricks of its own that everyone should know.

Here are three helpful things that feature on Ikea’s website.

Assembly instructions

Anyone who says they haven’t struggled with an Ikea flat pack is lying. Thankfully, if you lose your instructions or need to pull apart and rebuild an item, Ikea has assembly guides for all of their products available online to download. But that’s not all; assembly videos are also available for anyone who prefers visual instructions over written ones.

Buying guides

Ikea offers helpful guides that will show you how to plan, buy, build and care for furniture systems. Select the room area your product is in, the buying guide you want, then download for up to date information.

The materials used

There’s a lot to consider when buying furniture, regardless of where it’s from. Ikea makes it easy to see what resources are used to make each item. Simply click the ‘materials & environment’ tab of a product for more information.
