11 things from IKEA that we NEED for our homes this summer

When it comes to IKEA, there are two kinds of people in this world.

Some people totally light up at the idea of even heading to IKEA; making sure to map out what they need based on the shop’s layout (and, naturally, looking forward to a plate of meatballs for the effort).

But, for others, the idea of battling your fellow shoppers for that perfect homeware buy is an absolute nightmare.

Whichever category you find yourself in, there’s no denying it: planning - and some kind of strategy - is key when heading to IKEA.

And now that summer is pretty much here, we're feeling the need to give our homes a bit of a refresh.

So, we’ve rounded up 11 pieces that we’re going to be putting straight in our cart the next time we walk through the doors of that wonderful blue and yellow warehouse.

From furniture to finishing touches, there is something for everyone - and every need - as well as every price range.
