Ikea has the reputation for inexpensive and mass-produced items that you can purchase all over the world. Because of that, most people assume that their products will make your home feel cheaper. I am here to help you break that stigma! I am going to share with you 4 Ikea Must Haves To Elevate Your Home Decor!
Down Filled Linens
Ikea has extremely accessible pricing for down pillows and down comforters. Make sure when you are selecting pillow inserts for throw pillows that you choose down inserts because they will give you the desired “chop-able” look to the pillows. If you choose a synthetic fill. you won’t be able to chop the pillow. As for bedding, having a down comforter and sleeping pillows feels like sleeping on a cloud. Imagine sleeping in a 5-star hotel every night!
Now I won’t sleep on anything other than a down pillow because now I’ve done it and I, couldn’t not, it is so good. I look forward to getting into my bed every night.

A key factor in making window treatments look luxurious is the proper fit (just like well-tailored clothing). For curtains that means you want them to come as close to the ceiling as possible and just kiss the floor at the bottom. Ikea sells curtains in a wide variety of long lengths, so it is easy to find the proper height for your rooms.
Ikea’s curtains are sold in pairs (two panels per pack) which is rare and a great way to save money. Starting at around $12 for sheers up to $40 per pack, you can’t beat Ikea’s pricing on curtains.
