Tell me I’m not the only one who can easily spend a couple hours in Ikea. Between the just-right prices, nifty solutions for small spaces, and helpful floor arrows that point you where you want to go, the store is one of my favorites when I’m scouting for home goods. That’s why I’m pretty psyched for Ikea’s 2018 Black Friday deals — and I have a feeling you will be, too.

First of all, the details: Ikea’s Black Friday discounts will begin Friday, Nov. 23 and continue through Monday, Nov. 26. You’ll be able to shop the offers in stores and online, meaning that stylish-yet-affordable KIVIK sofa with a chaise is as good as yours.

There is, however, a bit of legwork you’ll have to do in order to score the deals. All of Ikea’s Black Friday savings are exclusive to Ikea Family Members. This program is free, but you’ll need to go ahead and register in order to take advantage of the savings. You might also want to sign up for the store’s email list in order to stay in the loop on specific offers available on Black Friday and Cyber Monday at Ikea stores and online.

What to Expect From the Ikea Black Friday Sale

According to the Ikea Black Friday Savings flyer, there’s a lot to look forward to from this sale. For starters, all POÄNG furniture is up to 25 percent off. That includes the stylish POÄNG Armchair ($129), POÄNG Ottoman ($99), and POÄNG Rocking Chair ($169).

All KIVIK furniture is also on sale, featuring up to 20 percent off sofas, sectionals, and chaise lounges. That means the KIVIK sofa ($849), KIVIK Chaise ($250), and KIVIK 4-Seat Sectional ($899) will all be discounted. Oh, and the KIVIK Ottoman With Storage ($219), which not only provides a solid place to rest your feet, but also offers a convenient place to stash magazines and other items.

If you are looking for an entertainment center or TV storage solution, then you’ll want to check out the BESTÅ line, which offers a variety of options. The BESTÅ TV storage combination ($551) is a good choice if you need a lot of room for living room essentials. There’s also the BESTÅ two-drawer and two-cabinet option, a solid solution for smaller spaces. The high-gloss front adds a sleek feel to any room.

When it comes to the bedroom, you’ll want to snag something from the GRUSBLAD or RÖDTOPPA line, which will be up to 25 percent off. Give your bed a revamp with the RÖDTOPPA Comforter ($59.99) or GRUSBLAD Comforter ($39.99), then add a few new throw pillows (priced from $3.99 to $34.99).

You’ll also find area rugs and table lamps marked down during the sale, as well as several kids’ items. I’ve got to say I kind of love the NYMÅNE Wall Lamp ($49.99) as a lighting option for my tiny home office.

Oh, and if you need more ornaments to deck the halls, then you’ll want to take a look at Ikea’s holiday ornaments, which will be up to 20 percent off during the sale.

You’ll likely find me stationed somewhere in my hometown store during the Black Friday Extravaganza. I will be the one with a tiny pencil and paper measuring tape in hand, plotting my next big home decor move.
