The Self-check idea that IKEA implemented is a disaster. It is very bad when a customer's last experience at the check-out counter is frustrating because of long, long lines and people who are not being helped because the one person at the self-check is trying to help eight people at a time and can't keep up. Everyone is exasperated and irritated! Is it worth saving a few $$$ on labor to have half your customers leave frustrated.
And don??t ever attempt to return anything. You will spend at least hour in line while they process endless paperwork at a very slow pace and in a rude manner.
Thus said??they have good ideas and good prices, but my time and sanity is worth a good experience as well!

I enjoy the wide variety of items available in 1 store. I enjoy having an inexpensive, healthy meal, served on ceramic plates. But beware of the quality of the furniture. Yes, it's cheap, but so is the quality.Bought a couch with low quality foam and fabric that was comfortable and looked good for about a year before it fell apart with normal use. I tried to find a comfortable chair with good support recently....no luck. I like their kitchen items, but the glaze on the dishes has worn off in a short amount of time. So buyer beware of the quality of Ikea stuff!

My years in LA made Ikea palpable because I saw designers mix antique and high end pieces w/Ikea for fabulous results. Ikea is a staple of every single design program on all the networks. Find good deals on live plants, planters, baskets, candles, pillow covers, bedding, mattresses and some bed frames. Accent lamps w/good design blow out of there at a very fast pace. Rugs can be very nice.

Seattle is good, LA had better grass mats and tropical decor.Now Seattle is part of the corporate and may have more forward thinking buyers. Just get in there and look because you will find something good! Good cooking things at fab prices-checkout their apple cutter that is good on potatoes. I wouldn't normally buy one but it so handy I load up and use them for house gifts instead of wine.

First off, there's the shopping experience itself: I don't walk marathons for furniture; I walk them for AIDS, breast cancer, or other important causes. The restaurants are not there for convenience; they're there for necessity: after walking through IKEA, you will need some nourishment before making the voyage back to your car.

Today, I purchased the Anes Dresser. When I got home and began to assemble it, I was very displeased to discover that the necessary hardware for assembly was NOT included in the package. The missing parts were not available in the "Got missing parts?" aisle (one wonders why they need this aisle to begin with), so I had to make a trip to Customer Service, which took an eternity.

The second attempt at assembly took my two friends and I THREE HOURS.

Now, I'm a patient person, and I realize that I may not be the most mechanically-skilled, but nothing so simple as a dresser should take three people three hours to assemble. The directions, though picturesque (literally), would be MUCH clearer and user-friendly if WORDS were included. Even shampoo bottles come with written directions!

Despite the obstacles of the missing parts and poorly-written directions, we assembled the dresser exactly as it was meant to be assembled, down to the last screw. Here's the kicker: THE BLOODY DRAWERS DON'T FIT INTO THE DRESSER PROPERLY!!! The drawers will not fit in without overlap. This overlap, in addition to the poor quality of the wood, makes for a very ugly dresser.

All in all, the missing parts, vague directions, and dysfunctional dresser made for an extremely disappointing experience with IKEA. I will not be returning and I advise you not to either.

If you know the name, you will love the store. Great prices, very large store. Easy to get lost in side the store but always helpful staff to assist you.

PROS: Great value, good parking
CONS: be ready to walk.

Ikea has a wide variety of items, but not necessarily a wide variety of choices of a single item. If you find that you like their style you can fill you whole home with reasonably priced items.

IKEA is one of a kind. Furniture warehouse sized store in Renton. Showroom is a maze of all they carry from couches to beds to shelves, etc... The furniture is "self assemble" and isn't too tough for even those with limited tools. Pricing can't be beat.

The only downside comes in the form of crowds. But why wouldn't everyone go to Ikea? Items for your home that you can't find anywhere else at extremely low prices - Ikea can't be beat.

Great if you're looking for decent affordable furniture. You do have to assemble most of the stuff yourself and if you are directionally impaired, being in ikea might be a real life nightmare!

Ikea is such a fun place to shop! They have it all, and at really great prices! It is fun to browse through the store, although it feels like it is somewhat of a maze at first. We've bought several items there and the one drawback is that they all have to be assembled, which can be very time consuming and frustrating as well. What is an added bonus is that they have a kids play area where you can check your kids into while you shop. Our kids love it there. They also have a kids club so everytime you go, you scan your card. You get something evertime whether it's a free kids meal, or a coupon for $5 off. It is worth it to sign up.

If you are into scandavadian furnature, then IKEA is Mecca. Unique path through store ensures you walk by everything in a most efficient mannor. There is something for everyone.

Sometimes the furnature is bland colored, but not often. They do let their design engineers have fun.

Ikea is a family friendly place to shop. It is often very busy, and parking can be difficult. Once inside, you have lots of choices of furniture, provided you like the Ikea "style." We always check out the dent and ding section for bargains. I know several families who swear the kids' play area and ball room was their child's motivation for potty training. Fun place to look and to shop.

This is a great store. I love the layout and prices. They also have rooms set up with furniture where you can write down the number of the item then go to retrieve it on the way out. I've been here several times. Parking is sometimes a challenge but worth the experience.

PROS: Prices
CONS: Parking

I love their furniture, hate the maze. sometimes I just want to go in for 1 or 2 things that I know where they would be, and then pay and leave and it is never that simple, I always get lost, or there is like 300 other people that had planned on spending their entire saturday their so my time is not important to them. But their furniture is good, the prices are really good.

I love shopping at Ikea. I can never leave empty handed. They have a maze that winds through the store displaying their products in mock room set-ups. This helps those with small spaces see how they can get the most of their room. My entire condo is full of IKEA stuff!! I love their prices. The one thing I dislike is the lack of detailed directions for putting together some of the more complicated furniture pieces. However, I always figure it out:)

Ikea is a great store. It has everything that you can imagine under one roof. The furnature is inexpensive. It has a restaurant - that is cheap. It has curtains and rugs. The staff is helpful and the play room for kids is amazing. The only downside is that you have to put the furniture together yourself - but with prices this cheap - that isn't much of a downside.

Ikea has greta quality stuff thats cheap. Nothin that I've bought from here has ever fallen apart of been broken, which is a worry when you buy something form a lower priced store. But I've been very happy with my purchases. The only bad thing is that it is really crowded all the time. And you have to walk through the maze of stuff through all the people. Its not so bad if you want to slowly browse everything, but if you want to get going it can be frustrating.

Ikea is a great place to shop for some of your furniture. Their Billy Bookshelf can't be beat - its sturdy, available in a plethera of wood colors, and can be updated with lights, doors or whatever. I have had Billy Bookshelves for about 8 years now for my rather large collection of books - no signs of warping yet. And the price can't be beat.

I like Ikea for some of the kitchen and bedding options as well. They have nice things at a reasonable price - so you don't have to feel guilty about redecorating.

PROS: good price, nice things, trendy things
CONS: cheapest of furniture is not necessarily the sturdiest.

I love this place. Plan on taking an entire day to enjoy the entire place. The "warehouse" type atmosphere is fun and you're lead thru the building by following the path. Everywhere you look there's bargains! I've hit the cash register with an entire cartful of items for under $100. Be sure to flash your ID if you're from out of state to avoid paying local sales tax. While you're at it, hit the restaurant on your way out!!

PROS: HUGE selection
CONS: if you don't like danish style furninshing, Ikea might not be your style

I took my wife to the Ikea in Renton (Seattle area) in December 2004. She was really excited. Anyway, so we get there and there is ample covered parking, a plus because it was raining. We bought alot, mostly little home decorations stuff. There was alot of selecition, but it wasn't very original. The furniture and other things were medium quality. Its good for 'first time' furniture.

Its definitely Swedish! I recently went to Ikea in Renton, it was my first experience at any Ikea. I was really excited to finally check out what my friends were so crazy about. It was huge- and had alot of selection-but it was all so repetitive- and the quality of the most furniture/accents was disappointing. I still bought alot- but you do have to pick and choose. If you are into modern/trendy -and well Swedish design -then this place is for you.

Ikea is not your ordinary home furnishing and accessory store. The actual store is filled with everything from all types and styles of furniture for every room of your house,everything for organization, accessories such as mirrors, candles, picture frames, and much more. Ikea also carries everything for your kitchen and bathroom, including dishes and utensils, cabinets, floors, countertops, almost everything. They showcase a lot of thier pieces in differntly designed rooms. They also have a caffe', with delicious forzen yougrt for just over a dollar, a really good restaurant, and a place to buy their famous Swedish meatballs and other goodies. All this is only the beginning of what Ikea offers. Their prices are very good, but parking and getting through the store can be a nightmare during their twice a year sales, and thier no-tax sale.

A friend and I visit Ikea at least once a month for lunch and some shopping without the kids! I love the cheap meals for both adults and children in the restaurant. They have a kid's room with ball pits, slides, drawing tables, toys and more that you can drop your kid's off while you shop for an hour. It's perfect for the mom's who want a little break from, "mommy, can I have this?".

It gets busy, so we stick to weekdays and never recommend going on the weekend. Even for a good sale. Ikea is huge and you can get lost in it easily, but the prices are good on their furniture. If you are going for the first time, make sure to set aside around 2 hours to look at everything.

PROS: Cheap, high-quality, kid-friendly
CONS: Big and can get overcrowded, especially on the weekend

Growing up Ikea provided me with my firstg desk. Well, my parents paid for it. I still can picture them struggling with the picture instructions and finally assembling the desk. Well, I have grown up and so has Ikea. They are a great value for home or office. Just don;t expect everything to last forever. Some items will be good to you, but others won't last very long at all. It's also a fun place to shop, get decorating ideas, and of coure try some swedish meatballs!

IKEA is the best place in the world to buy cheap, but quality furniture! The only downfall is that you have to put it together yourself, but it won't matter because their prices are so cheap! They have very cool showrooms, and sell more than just furniture. They have office supplies, decorative items and even storage items. Their staff is great and this location is so huge, you could spend hours just looking at everything. Great for college students or young adults just starting out!

I personally have an "Ikea" house! I have been to Ikea many times and have to say that every single time is more fun than the last! Ikea offers home decor at a low price. Sometimes you may have to find yourself putting things together but it's usually never harder then a few screws. Ikea may not really offer the highest end investment pieces.. but if you want your house to look decent.. for a low price.. I'd check it out!

Ikea is THE best furniture and accessory store IN THE WORLD. The materials they use are very eco-friendly and they only use manufacturers who comply with labour laws and fair-pay scales for employees. Their stores are HUGE and so many bargains can be found. Plan to spend a minimum of an hour shopping. Every budget plan can be met---need to furnish a room for $50? No problem. Need to furnish a room for $500? No problem. They have a delicious cafeteria in the kitchen secion where you can get DELICIOUS Sweedish Meatball platter (w/lingonberry sauce, potatoes, and a roll) for about $4. Their employees are absolutely wonderful, their items are trendy, affordable, and easy to assemble, and you WILL not be able to leave without buying SOMETHING. Beware--the store is laid out in a circular pattern so try to stay on the "trail" for your first visit or you could get very turned around and lost! Parking on weekends is in short supply--come first thing in AM or after 4pm

PROS: Good prices, great food, neat items for not alot of $$
CONS: Confusing layout for 1st timers, hard to park on weekends

IKEA has anything and everything you could possibly want for the home, patio, garage, ect. You will find things in this warehouse that you need but didn't even know existed. I have bought most of my furniture from IKEA and have been very happy with the quality as well as the customer service given in the warehouse.

I don't appreciate the marketing/sales approach that makes me look at EVERYTHING before I can figure out how to get out of the store! I know why there's a restaurant...so people don't starve before they figure out how to get out.

We have only purchased 2 things from Ikea we like - cutting boards. I will in the future buy similar items through the catalogue, but we have not been happy with the furniture. Its cheap because its cheap! The couch we bought has been better suited as a conversation piece than couch. Little did we know it was made of foam, weighs about 3 lbs (don't sit on the floor and lean on it!!) and if two people sit on it, you're both in a 'hole' in the middle within a few minutes.

Boo.

I LOVE Ikea. Furnished my entire apartment from there after a cross country move for under $1000. Stylish modern and semi traditional home furnishings, fun store with a childrens play area and great, cheap cafe.
Everyone has heard of Ikea. Yes it's true you have to assemble a lot of the stuff yourself, but it's not that difficult. Just get a good bottle of glue and it's probably sturdier than some of the stuff at regular discount furniture stores. Or they will assemble and deliver for you for extra.
It's cool stuff at good prices, and a fun place to window shop even on a rainy day!

Alright, so I finally had to check it out and see Ikea for myself.
I have heard good and bad things about it from family and friends. I have to say that it was a fun experience. Lots of origianal, modern looking furniture to choose from. There was a food area and play area for good. I was in Ikea land!!!!
All in all it was a learning experience. Cool looking stuff made cheap.

PROS: Choices, food, large area for displays.
CONS: Cheaply made furniture
located too far away
furniture assembly

IKEA offers a little of everything you need for the home. The prices are excellent. The quality and value are fine. Their products are best suited for young people just starting out, or if you dont want to spend a lot of money on a piece of furniture. Some assembly required.
