Online and in-store planning services

If you're struggling with the layout of your kitchen, or feel the need to liberate your living space, with some inspiration and plenty of expertise, our home furnishing experts can help you plan your interiors with a remote or in-store planning appointment.

Design your perfect kitchen, bathroom, living room storage, wardrobe or sofa with our specialists, at a time that suits you. We’ll schedule a consultation where we’ll discuss your needs, priorities and requirements and explore styles, materials and finishes to help you achieve your interior's goals. We’ll set you up with a solid plan and a shopping list quickly and easily. Or we’ll review the plan you made. To start on your own, try our online planners.

How IKEA planning services work

  1. Get inspired by spending time browsing our rooms, and playing with all our free online planning tools. Take notes on which styles, colours, products and ideas you like so it’s easier for us to understand what designs and looks you prefer.
  2. Choose a need. Do you want help with a space or whole room? A particular furniture system? For your home or business? Browse the furnishing areas below to find the planning service you need.
  3. Book an appointment using the related link below.
  4. Measure and list. We’ll need details about the space or room. Record measurements of height, width and depth as well as positions/dimensions of electrical outlets, doors, windows, etc. Make a list of your needs.
  5. Bring your measurements, list of needs and style notes to the appointment. A drawing or photo of the space is useful, too. We’ll discuss layouts and solutions to create a plan and a shopping list.
  6. Take time to assess the plan and next steps. Do you need to make changes? Start over? Buy now? When you’re ready, visit us online or in-store to order.
