365 days to change your mind

No-nonsense return policy

It's important to us that you're happy with your IKEA purchase. If you're not totally satisfied you can return it within 365 days. We will give you a full refund by the same method as your original payment for products that are returned with proof of purchase in a new and unused condition and, if possible, the packaging. You can return any product, even if you assembled it, as long as it's in a re-saleable condition. Unless faulty, we may refuse the return or offer an exchange or gift card only if the returns criteria are not fully met.

If you purchased online and change your mind, provided you cancel your total order within 14 days of receiving it, we will also refund your delivery charge.

Love it or exchange it

Your new mattress in 90 days

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. If the chemistry isn't right, simply come back and choose another mattress. When you've found your perfect match, you can sleep easy for years to come with our free 25-year guarantee.

Love it or exchange it Terms and Conditions

It is important to us that you love your new mattress. So if after a while you discover that it is too firm, too soft or too something else just bring the mattress back and simply change it for another.

You may exchange your mattress once within 90 days if you don’t love it, provided that it is not dirty, marked or damaged. Simply take your mattress back to the IKEA store with your receipt and we will help you find one that suits you better.

Please note that initially, your new mattress can seem a bit too firm. Allow at least one 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.
If you would like to upgrade your mattress, all we ask is that you pay the difference between the original purchase price and the price of the replacement chosen. If the replacement mattress is lower in price, we will credit the difference to an IKEA refund card for you to use towards a future purchase.

If you had your mattress delivered via our Home Delivery Service the collection and delivery of the replacement mattress will be free-of-charge.

The “Try it at home for 90 days” return policy is valid on all new mattresses, but does not apply to SULTAN bed bases, bed slats and mattress pads.

The Terms & Conditions of our 25-year guarantee and the care instructions can be found in our guarantee brochures.

This return policy and our guarantee do not affect your statutory rights.
