IKEA Planning studio

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

As a precautionary measure against the ongoing risk of COVID-19, we have decided that, at 6pm on Friday 20th March, we will temporarily close all the IKEA stores across the UK and Ireland to customers.

You will continue to be able to browse and purchase our range online or through the app, and have our products delivered directly to you. You will also be able to request a contact-free delivery if you prefer. For people with pre-booked kitchen planning appointments, we will be in touch to discuss virtual or remote planning options.

 Co-workers are at the heart of the IKEA business and we are committed to supporting them in the best possible way during this complex and fast-evolving situation. We would like to thank our co-workers and partners for their dedication and hard work through these unprecedented times.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our stores soon and we thank you for your understanding during these extraordinary circumstances.


So, what is a Planning studio? A Planning studio is a smaller store dedicated to kitchen and bedroom inspiration where you can find home furnishing advice and expertise to help design your ideal space.

There are plenty of creative ideas to discover - from modern, traditional or space-saving kitchens to smart storage solutions and fitted wardrobes, you'll soon be inspired to start designing.

Visit us today to browse the showroom for ideas and inspiration or, if you're ready, book an appointment to start your design with one of our specialist co-workers.

To ensure there is as much space for inspiration as possible there are no items to purchase and take home on the day. For your convenience, purchases made at the Planning studio will be delivered to your home.
