Our IKEA return policy

We’ve detailed everything about our generous IKEA return policy – which is the same for all customers and all channels – on this page.

At IKEA, it’s OK to change your mind. Sometimes what seemed perfect for your home, office or garden, just isn’t. Returning a product to us is convenient and hassle-free, no matter how or where it’s bought.

The IKEA ‘Love it or exchange it’ policy

‘Love it or exchange it’ is our IKEA 90-day trial scheme for newly purchased mattresses. ​

It takes time for you and your new mattress to get used to each other. That's why we give you 90 days to be sure you're compatible. So, after you’ve slept on it a while, you can exchange your mattress if you find it too firm or too soft. When you've found your perfect match, you can sleep easy for years to come with our free 10-year guarantee.

Things to note: IKEA mattress exchange

  • You can exchange your mattress once within 90 days. 
  • The only condition is that it’s not dirty, marked or damaged. ​ 
  • The policy doesn’t apply to SULTAN bed bases, bed slats or IKEA mattress pads.  ​ 
  • New mattresses often feel a bit too firm, so wait at least a month for your body to get used to the mattress and for the mattress to get used to your body.
  • To get the best comfort you also need the right pillow, make sure you have a pillow that suits you and your new mattress.
  • Once you’ve found your perfect mattress, it’ll be covered by our 10-year IKEA mattress guarantee. Terms and conditions for our guarantee can be found in our guarantee brochures. This return policy and our guarantee do not affect your statutory rights.
  • If your mattress exchange is an upgrade, you’ll just cover the price difference between the original and the replacement. ​
  • If the replacement’s price is lower, we’ll credit the difference to an IKEA Refund card for you to use towards a future purchase.. ​
