Furniture-Shopping Tips with Ikea Singapore

Some people might find the process of redecorating a home quite the chore. Since furniture and home décor comes in a variety of categories, choosing the perfect one is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Aside from the necessary extensive research, furniture is not exactly the cheapest thing you can buy for your home.

Luckily, Ikea Singapore can solve all those problems. Hailing all the way from Sweden, Ikea offers affordable home furnishings since its beginnings in 1943. Founded by the late Ingvar Kamprad when he was only 17 years old, the Ikea home décor and furniture are designed modernly and minimally so that it can fit with all kinds of interior design. Ikea Singapore also makes the shopping process a breeze by providing delivery assistance, customer service, and online catalogues.

Set a Budget

Before anything else, you need to set a specific budget for each of the furniture (e.g. Ikea sofas, cabinets, etc.) that you're planning to purchase. Ikea Singapore offers a wide array of home furnishings with varying price points, going as low as SG$2 and as high as SG$1,000. Decide on what kind of features and materials you want on your Ikea furniture; the less features they have like storage and the cheaper the materials used, the more affordable your Ikea product will be.

Browse and Research

Since the brand has a wide range of products from Ikea lighting to beddings, it's crucial that you do your research and browse the Ikea catalogue before making your final purchase decisions. The Ikea Singapore catalogue is simple and organized by room and/or function to make this process a breeze for you. You can also find out the different versions, models, colors and prices of a specific product. By researching and browsing the Ikea catalogue, you won't have to experience any buyer's regret when the Ikea furniture you bought doesn't match with the rest of your décor or has the wrong measurements.

Get Inspired

If you really have no idea on which Ikea Singapore product to buy, you can always look online for inspirations or give the Ikea showroom a visit. Ikea provides décor inspirations for all kinds of rooms like nurseries, home offices, laundry area, and more. The Ikea catalog will also list down all the prices for the small home décor pieces directly.

Measure Your Space

After browsing and researching, you need to measure the space in your home especially when buying bigger Ikea furniture. Use a measuring tape to determine the width and length of the space in your home so your furniture will fit seamlessly. You should also measure he pathway to the desired space to ensure that your Ikea product can pass through without bumping into other objects around your house.

Prepare the Right Tools

Once you've purchased your furniture from Ikea Singapore, it's time to assemble them. It's recommended that you have a toolbox already on hand to speed up the process of assembly. The screws provided by Ikea can be fastened using the regular screwdrivers, either the slot or the Philips screw head. Other tools that you may require also include wrenches, pliers, drills, and a level.

...And Read the Manual

Many people skip reading the manual completely when they purchase a new product. Though, you really need to avoid doing so when it comes to assembling your Ikea furniture. Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly and take note of all the pieces provided by Ikea. If a piece is missing, you should contact the Ikea customer service right away.

Maintaining Your Ikea Furniture

The simplest way to make your Ikea products last long is to clean them regularly. If you've spilled something on your Ikea bed, sofa, rug, or chair, quickly clean them off straight away. During the day, you can also do a light dusting to make everything clean and germ-free. Perhaps once or twice a year, do a deep cleaning along with the rest of your house.

If you've nailed these six steps, furniture shopping should be another walk in the park. Even though furnishing a home require quite a big investment, Ikea Singapore will always make this process simple and easy for everyone.
