IKEA is already a treasure trove for finding stylish furniture on a budget, but in the midst of the cost-of-living crisis, IKEA felt that its prices could be further improved and reduced.
The flatpack powerhous has lowered the prices of some of its most iconic products including the IKEA KALLAX, MALM dresser and HEMNES bedside table. It has already dropped the prices of over 1,500 pieces, and a further 1,000 more are set to be reduced by this spring.
IKEA drops prices on its bestsellers
We love an IKEA hack, IKEA furniture is the perfect minimalist blank canvas for many stunning makeovers. The KALLAX shelves are one of our favourite pieces for a clever hack. We've seen them turned into an IKEA KALLAX coffee bar hack and even into a lovely dining bench.
This is why we’re so pleased that the prices of the KALLAX products have all been reduced dropping to £25 for the smallest shelving unit, the larger unit has also dropped in price from £115 to £99.
These new lower prices are long term so you’ll be able to take advantage of these improved prices for the foreseeable future.
‘Since IKEA was first founded, we have been on a journey to provide quality items which are affordable for as many people as possible; a commitment that we’re proud to uphold,’ says Michaela Quinlan, chief commercial officer at IKEA UK and Ireland. ‘That’s why we’re incredibly pleased to be passing on £100m in savings from improved purchasing goods costs, directly into New lower pricing on 2,500 of IKEA’s much-loved products.’
This step towards lower prices was taken in reaction to the current cost of living crisis. ‘We know that many challenges remain when it comes to the cost of living, so making continuous price improvements is important to us,’ Michaela adds.
But if you’re not up for an easy DIY project or are a fan of a simple, minimalist style, IKEA furniture is stylish enough to be left as it is, no need for a makeover.
Either way, this is an exciting development and we can’t wait to see what else will join the New lower prices section before springtime.
