Admit it, you have no idea what “looks good” when it comes to making a room appealing so that when someone who walks in they compliment you on your choice of furniture or accessories.

The idea of getting an interior designer in might just be a bit too much for you too. But for the first time, you can do that virtually with IKEA.

You don’t have to leave your home, but get all the professional interior design and planning consultation benefits without an expensive price tag.

There are two levels of service available from IKEA. The first is a 30 minute design advice service. Free at launch, this service involves an online meeting with an interior designer who will talk you through colours, textiles and such. As well as tips and tricks to get you going.

Then there’s the “Basic Design Package” – at $79 this is a very affordable 60 minute session that has clear outcomes for a specific space within your home.

You’ll receive after your session a pretty impressive set of information to take with you shopping – wherever you choose to shop.

That includes a Product collage (Featuring IKEA products), Materials and colours, a Mood Board and a 3D visual outline of their design suggestion.

Christine Gough, Head of Interior Design, IKEA Australia said, “At IKEA, we believe home is the most important place in the world.  We understand the essential role it plays, and as leaders in life at home, through sharing our knowledge we want to help as many Australians as possible to live a better everyday life.  

“We know that everyone is unique and that is why the members of our Australian, virtual interior design team are here to help our customers figure out what they need, when they need it, and where they need it. Our consultants have extensive knowledge and genuine enthusiasm for home furnishing and design. Each one of them is equipped and excited to help customers bring their dream home to life.” 

It’s all available to book at the IKEA Website.
