IKEA return policy

On this page you will find full details of the IKEA right to return goods, which applies to all sales channels.

At IKEA, we understand that sometimes you change your mind. You find something you thought would be perfect for your home, office or garden... only to have to change your mind once you see the result. It is very easy to return an IKEA product, regardless of where you bought it. You can return any product, from chairs to plants, in one of our stores or through another channel.

Return policy for mattresses: a good night’s sleep, or we’ll exchange it.

We know that it takes more than 10 minutes to find the right mattress. Your body needs around four to six weeks to get used to a new mattress. That’s why, at IKEA, we let you try out a new mattress for 90 days. This means that, after having slept on your mattress for a while, you can return or exchange it if you find it too hard or too soft.

How to exchange your IKEA mattress

Simply bring your mattress to any IKEA store together with your receipt, and we’ll help you find a new one. If you want to have your mattress delivered to IKEA, we’ll help you book a reliable delivery service. 

Please note: the return conditions for mattresses:

  • You can exchange your mattress within 90 days
  • Soiled, stained or damaged mattresses are excluded from our IKEA return policy. Always use a mattress protector to extend the life of your mattress and protect it.
  • This policy does not apply to mattress pads/toppers.
  • New mattresses often feel a little too hard, so it’s important to spend a month getting used to your mattress and to choose a pillow that’s right for you. 
  • If your mattress exchange is an upgrade, you only pay the difference in price between the original and the replacement.
  • If the price of the replacement mattress is lower, we will re-credit you with the difference on an IKEA refund card.
