From high end looks at great prices to super cheap must-haves, here’s my 25 top picks for the best products at IKEA. Some will shock you!
Best Products At IKEA
I just got back from a long, long shopping trip to IKEA. And, like any store, there are always some great buys and some not-so-great buys.
In this post, I’m going over the items that I actually did or would buy from IKEA. And, I’m picky about furniture and home décor. So, I only pick items at IKEA that I think will last.
Some links on this post are affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases at no additional cost to you.
Even if it’s really cute or really cheap, I won’t put it on this list if I think it will be garbage in 3 months. I picked these items as best buys after touching them, inspecting the materials list, and going over the build.
Hopefully this list can help you decide which products at IKEA are worth that LONG drive out there. Let’s get to that list!
25 Of The Best Products At Ikea
After a 2-hour shopping trip at IKEA, I'm sharing my picks for best buys at Ikea.
NISSAFORS Utility Cart
I LOVE this sturdy metal cart as a storage option that can be easily rolled into closets, packed full of stuff, or used as a bedside table with storage. And, it's so cheap!
This beautiful bench has a soft close lid, tons of storage, great legs, and is available in many fabric options. My fav is the plaid!
IKEA 365+ Dinnerware, White
It's easy to replace broken dishes when you stick with basic white dishware. And, this line at Ikea is perfect for that! It's heavy and feels like quality dishes. Avoid the cheaper, lighter dishes. They look too breakable.
KARTOTEK Rack With 5 Hooks
This simple coat hook is so stylish and super affordable at around $16. AND, it looks great when you install a few in a long row. Check out my video below to see an example of that!
TJENA Magazine File
Dress up your shelves with these pretty and cheap magazine files.
IDASEN Drawer Unit on Casters
Slide this great metal cabinet under a desk, use it as a bedside table, or pop it under a side table when space is limited. I LOVE that yellow. And the drawers are soft close.
SVANSELE Mirror, Gold
I am a HUGE fan of this beautiful gold mirror with those curved corners and that rich gold color. Big fan!
VINDKAST Pendant Lamp, White, 20"
This ribbon, round pendant light is so COOL. It's perfect for kids rooms, teen girls rooms, dorms, and more. It's so fun. Check out my video below to see how cool they look in a group of 3!!
FJALLBO Shelf Unit, Metal and Wood
The shelves on this metal unit are REAL WOOD! That means it looks better and lasts longer than the fiberboard and particle board furniture. And, that metal feels sturdy and looks great.
TJOG Magazine File
Here's another cheap magazine file that adds so much style to your shelves. I love this labels!
RIBBA Frame - IKEA
I like the chunky look of the frame on the Ribba, but there are other great frames at IKEA. I always get the frames with mattes. They're a great deal! And, they come in white, gold, wood, and black.
IDASEN High Cabinet with Drawer and Doors
Here's another stylish cabinet from the Idasen line. This Ikea product looks high end, has a cool vibe, soft close drawers, and has great storage space.
This beautiful armchair comes in multiple great fabric choices, has great feet, feels comfy, and it's a nice sized chair!
NISSEDAL Mirror, Black
You might not be able to tell by the picture, but this mirror frame is cut beautifully. And, it feels nice and thick. I love it in black. But other colors are available.
FJALLBO Shelf Unit, Metal and Pine
Here's another piece from the Fjallbo line. The cabinets feel high end, the doors are on a magnetic close, and the metal has a strong, sturdy feel. And, it looks great too.
This curtain has a subtle herringbone pattern that looks high end, the material is thick, it looks pretty on the backside, and it's available in a few colors.
DALFRED Bar Stool, Black
This stool is so cool, I LOVE that screw-style seat. I mention in the video below that I think the seat is a bit small. But that could be fixed with a $12 wood round from Lowes or Home Depot.
Here's another great Matte/Frame option at Ikea. I love their gold decor. The color is perfect!
IDASEN Cabinet With Doors And Drawers
Description is required.And, the last item I want to share from this Idasen line is this large storage cabinet with 2 drawers. I LOVE this as an option for teen rooms, dorms, apartments, and even cool game rooms.
SANELA Room Darkening Curtains
This velvet curtain is super soft, looks high end, comes in beautiful colors (I LOVE the green, yellow, and pink), and it's super thick. This curtain is even room darkening for day sleepers.
FEJKA Artificial potted plant, thyme
This is just one example of the MANY great artificial plants available at IKEA. So, look around for pretty and cheap options to fill your bookshelves with zero-maintenance greenery.
ADELSTEN Mortar and Pestle, Marble
I LOVE a mortar and pestle as a bit of fun kitchen décor. This marble pestle can actually grind fresh spices for you too.
DRANJANS Magazine File, Wire Mesh
The color of this magazine holder is one of my favorites! I love this option for organizing your magazines and books.
Here's another beautiful mirror with a uniquely shaped frame. I LOVE this round design. This is definitely one of the Ikea products that looks high end.
And, last but not least, this gorgeous gold, long mirror would dress up any room. I love that it's extra-wide and it feels heavy in a way that feels expensive, despite it's affordable price.
