We hold regular workshops in store for IKEA FAMILY members (another great benefit of being a member).

Our workshops are run by specialists, aimed at giving members even more advice and ideas to make their home furnishing dreams a reality. Workshop content includes inspiration for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room, as well as content on working with colours and patterns.

This page is regularly updated, so please come back to see what's available or ensure you have given us your email address to receive IKEA FAMILY member communication.

Kitchen Workshop | An Introduction To METOD

To be a true master chef you really need the right kitchen. Our experts at IKEA Lakeside can show you how to get the best out of your new kitchen so that it becomes a more functional and enjoyable room to be in. The cooking, however, is up to you.

The workshop is run by our Kitchen Specialists. You'll get an inspirational tour of our new Kitchens roomsets and our Kitchens team will be on hand to offer product advice on our new 'METOD' kitchen range and you'll also be able to have a go on our kitchen planning tool.

So if you are looking to refresh or completely re-plan your Kitchen, why not book yourself onto one of our interior design workshops. All guests will receive refreshments and a take-home goodie bag. It’s all FREE and it’s all exclusive to IKEA FAMILY members.
