Have you just moved homes and want to install some IKEA furniture by yourself? It is a great idea! IKEA furniture is dynamic, modular and can also be fun to install, if you follow a few easy steps.
This week we blog on how to set yourself up for success, if you go it alone.
Attached are some ‘tips of trade’ to help you enjoy IKEA furniture assembly:
Prepare the Work Area: Ensure you have a clean and flat work area with a cover on the floor or work area. Think big and make sure you have enough room to work with ease and turn the item around, if necessary. Remember, the instructions are there to help us, so take time to review before commencing any work.
Tools, Tools, Tools: IKEA assembly is easy once you have the right tools. They often suggest a screw driver but in reality, all handymen use cordless drills that have all the right bits to assemble the units really fast. Get the right ‘allen keys’ and a wooden or rubber hammer to tap in any small wooden pegs. Remember, do not over tighten the screws, just keep them flush with the unit.
