IKEA Windows App To Design Your Own RoomMarch 9th, 2009 • 9 Comments
Are you an IKEA fan? Interior designer by alter ego? Or maybe you just want to make sure furniture will fit and look good in your home before splashing out the cash and muscles to move them?
Try IKEA’s free 3D room design tool, straight from the Swedes themselves. The home planner tools allows you to fill the room as you please with IKEA furniture via a drop down menu.
The free software is an easy to use tool that allows you to experiment with various furniture that you can purchase, view and even print the options and get live consultation from your local IKEA store.
Just 2 things to note:
1. The free download is currently available for Windows only right now.
2. The 15% VAT cut is not reflected in the tools, but may be updated anytime so just double check the price before purchase.
I don’t get why this is suddenly all over the net, its been available for years afaik.
You can get the same idea by flinging your personal faeces round the room, a room full of pointless shite, thats looks like crap, made out of shit and you’ll wish you hadn’t done it. Try it, it’s very theraputic.
Yep, I worked for IKEA in Marketing for 6 years – I can confirm the Kitchen planner has been out at LEAST 5 years, and the Office planner at least 3, probably closer to 4! In that time, the only really major updates have been to the catalog and pricing (and localization throughout Europe).
Kitchen planner used to be DIRE, but it’s alright now.
It is good that you can get your ideas down in software, then the sales team can load it straight from t’Internet in the store and go “Oh, no, that won’t work…” and redo it for you
The Office Planner has been around for at least 5 years – I used it on 2004 to design my own office. But the furniture wasn’t from IKEA.
Cor dear, I used the MFI (RIP) version in my old flat which was cor 2002 odd?
i tried this last yr, it was a pain to use and it does not give you many options you can have a square room , a bigger square room, or a slightly rectangle room and then buggers up just as your nearly finished putting everything in
The Planner is about as good as some of their policies! Total cr*p.
They are offering a 10% discount for IKEA family members on wardrobes right now but only on a delivered order, only for a £400 spend and half the range is available only by collect at store! Oh yes, and they do not include the trim for wardorbes in the offer!!! Unbelievable!!
how you get on
