If you have ever stepped inside an Ikea store, you probably felt overwhelmed instantly. There are so many things to see and buy. If you didn’t want something when you walked in, you will want everything by the time you walk out.
The fact that everything is priced so inexpensively makes it hard to resist buying everything you want, as do the displays all over the store. Still, it’s nice to refrain from impulse shopping. If you see something you like, be sure to read the reviews.
While Ikea has a lot of really nice products, there are some that aren’t quite as good. You need to shop wisely if you want to get the best deals possible. That means being smart about things. If something seems too good or cheap to be true, then it probably is.
Here are 25 great buys from Ikea and 25 products that you should reconsider. The good news is, there are plenty of alternatives to be found in Ikea. So, if one product doesn’t work out, chances are you can still find another during your same shopping trip.
