Creating Your Dream Home with IKEA

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

I have to admit that I am a HUGE fan of IKEA.  In fact, many of my favorite pieces of furniture have come from there.  One thing that I have noticed is that people seem to think that IKEA furniture is not the same quality as others, but I think that they are dead wrong.  Yes, I have purchased inexpensive furnishings in the past from other retailers that was cheap made and did not have a lot of quality to it, but when it comes to my purchases from IKEA…I have been nothing but pleased.

Simple Tips to Create Your Dream Home Without Breaking the Bank….Thanks IKEA

Look for Pieces that Match Your Natural Style

Do you have a preference for style?  Most of us do and one of the things that I love most about IKEA is that you can find items from a wide range of styles.  I have a bit of an obsession with mid-century modern furnishings and there are definitely some pieces that I will be picking up in the near future.  I am currently obsessing over this Regissor Coffee Table ($149).  It reminds me of all of my favorite mid century modern pieces.  The best part for me is that it looks like something that I would be spending quite a bit of money on but it is reasonably priced which is always nice when you live on a budget.

Look for Small Ways to Add Big Style to Your Room

Another thing that I love is color but I prefer just splashes of color with overall muted tones.  I love this IKEA PS 2014 Storage Table ($69).  I plan on purchasing two of these for our living room and I love the added bonus that it provides some basic storage.

Look for Comfortable and Fun Seating

When it comes to living room seating, comfort is important.  The Strandmon Wing Chair ($279) is not only comfortable but it is another piece that will make a big statement in your space.  Another great thing about this chair is that it has a ten year warranty.  You won’t have to worry about it no longer working for you in just a few years.  Instead you are going to be able to have it for years to come.

Find Pieces That Fit Your Needs

We don’t have a separate toy room for our kid’s toys.  This is so frustrating!  So I have had to try to maximize style and storage with the shelving units that I choose.  The fact that these Kallax Shelving Units ($199) are so high in quality makes them even better!  We have had some for over two years now and they continue to look new even with the abuse my children put them through.

So when it comes to shopping you do not have to break the bank.  You can have a creative fun space that is completely your own on a budget.
