IKEA is our go-to for affordable and attractive Scandinavian furniture – well, that and tasty Swedish meatballs, of course. But it’s easy to get lost in the maze of their home mock-ups and rows of furniture items, and if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, you can easily spend hours just sifting through their thousands of products.

To help narrow down your search, here are some of the most aesthetically-pleasing yet practical items you can find at IKEA Singapore that are also budget-friendly. We’ve also included the links to IKEA’s webpage, so you can easily cart out the items from home if you’re lazy to head down in person.


1. NYPON plant pot (from $1.90)

Having house plants can help freshen up a home, both in terms of aesthetics and air quality. You can’t go wrong by getting the sleek NYPON plant pots (from $1.90) to hold your babies in. At first glance, they look like they’re made out of concrete, but are actually an eco-friendly product made from recycled plastic.

The HÖNEFOSS mirror is an unconventional piece that serves as wall decor on top of its primary function. Each set comes with 10 hexagonal mirror panels in 2 different tones of brown, and you can simply stick them on your wall in any configuration you want.

Snacking is made convenient with the GLADOM tray table ($19.90), where the tabletop doubles up as a detachable tray for serving. This will come in especially handy for those who don’t like staying in one corner of the house for too long – simply carry the entire tray with you from room to room, rather than having to juggle multiple items as you move around.

Most IKEA cushions cost $4.90 at the very least, and can go up to $9.90 or more depending on the design. The TURILL cushion is an exception, at an unbelievable price of just $1.90 – that’s cheaper than a bowl of noodles at the hawker centre! It’s got a white base with black abstract brushstroke prints that will give your sofa an artsy edge.

5. SJÖPENNA pendant lamp ($29.90)

6. SYVDE open wardrobe ($129)

If you want your bedroom to remain minimalist, with only a few pieces of clothing in your closet a la Marie Kondo, consider an open wardrobe where you can have everything within easy sight. Seeing your apparel laid out neatly would motivate you to keep the clutter to a minimum and really stick to nothing but the essentials.

IKEA has tons of open wardrobes, but the SYVDE ($129) is one of the more affordable and compact ones you’ll find. It comes with a clothes rail that can hang around 10 items, as well as a shelf that you can adjust based on your needs.

The shelving compartment alone is said to be able to store 10 pairs of folded pants and 20 tees, so that’s not too shabby. You’ll be able to keep to the basics without having to wear the same thing every few days.

7. FJANTIG chair-shaped hooks ($5.90 for 3)

These FJANTIG chair-shaped hooks ($5.90 for 3) are probably the quirkiest hooks you’ll ever find. Apart from the most common purpose of hanging clothes or towels, these also work for small items like keys and headphones.

You could even rest your iPad across two hooks while it charges – they’re that sturdy!

8. BLECKBERGET office chair ($79)

An office chair doesn’t necessarily have to look corporate. Instead of the usual dark colours, the BLECKBERGET office chair ($79) comes with a white frame and eye-pleasing cushion shades of beige, dark grey, and mint green, which makes it inviting and less severe.

9. RÅSHULT trolley ($39.90)

Keep your kitchen counter spick and span with the RÅSHULT trolley ($39.90). With 3 tiers, it gives you a decent amount of space to store kitchen essentials like ingredients or utensils.

Yup, it’s TOFTLUND ($19.90), the classic IKEA fur rug. But unlike its sheepskin counterpart, this one is a much cheaper and sustainable version that’s made from polyester derived from recycled PET bottles – no actual fur involved. Who even knew that fabric could come from plastic?

Throw this by the side of your bed for instant luxe.
