Today is round 1 of furniture shopping.
We had shortlisted some stuff we wanted from Ikea and went to take a look at the actual things.
We had lunch at Ikea Tampines and were pleasantly surprised they had changed the layout of the cafe. Not sure when they did that but I liked the change because the whole place felt brighter.
This is how the play area looks like now. It definitely has more things for kids to play with than the old play area. Plus, all the toys there are Ikea products, so I guess if the kids really like what is displayed, parents can also buy something similar.
So I shortlisted another shelf.
This also made me feel that as like buying clothes, seeing the actual furniture before deciding to buy is very important.
Buying these two cabinets for Phoebie was quite an adventure because we can choose different colour combinations, so at the self collect shelves, we had many parts to collect.
Thankfully, the staff helped us make a list based on the combination we wanted.
Not sure how long this thing has been going on but today, I also found out that Ikea membership is now free.
All in all, today was a fruitful trip because we got quite a few things settled. And because some of the items we bought were on sale, we ended up spending lesser than expected.
The Ikea sale is still on now and ends 24th July, so if anyone needs something for the household, you can go take a look.
