IKEA, the home decor favorite known for their affordable, versatile home furniture and accents, has developed a whole new way to make designing your home even easier. On April 11, IKEA announced the launch of the IKEA Interior Design Service, a program that's meant to bring affordable one-on-one interior design assistance to consumers.

"We want to support people’s lives at home and at work and help them create their dream space," said Abbey Stark, Interior Design Leader for IKEA U.S., in a press release.

Buying and building IKEA's furniture is as simple as can be, but sometimes you may find yourself wondering how you can get the aesthetic room designs on their site in your own space. If you've been dying to update a room or your entire home and don't know where to start, look no further. IKEA Interior Design Service has you covered with easy, convenient, and affordable professional recommendations at your fingertips.

This won't be a lookbook of awe-inspiring ideas that might leave you overwhelmed and unsure of where to start, but a series of one-on-one sessions with an Expert IKEA Interior Designer who will create a design to suit the needs of you and your home perfectly.

We want to support people’s lives at home and at work and help them create their dream space.

This service isn't limited just to your home, either. You can also use the IKEA Interior Design Service to redesign any space in your home or your business, including offices, restaurants, retail spaces, and more. Interior design services in residential spaces start at $99, while services for businesses start at $299.

So how does it work? To start, customers will fill out a questionnaire that asks them to describe their must-haves and what would make the room redesign their dream space. Customers will then be paired with an Expert Interior Designer in their region. From there, you'll have three virtual sessions with an IKEA designer to develop everything you need for your room redesign: from mood boards, floor plans, and detailed 3D renderings to a curated product list, furnishing tops, and more.

"It is a great opportunity for our well-versed, creative, and talented interior designers to continue to build meaningful relationships and mutual trust with our customers as we provide beautifully designed and affordable solutions that improve their home or business,” Stark said.

When the design process is complete, IKEA will coordinate delivery, assembly, and installation by ordering products straight to your home or business, making your designs truly come to life.

This program will be just another addition to IKEA's design offerings such as IKEA Kreativ, and IKEA's planning tools and services. You can learn more about the IKEA Interior Design Service and how to use it in your home on their site.
