I bet.. ;-) You can track pieces of IKEA products in most of the households here in Abu Dhabi. Either you are renting only a room or being accommodated in a villa, some IKEA items are definitely visible everywhere from bathroom, kitchen, kids’ rooms, living room and even to car compartments.
So, you may wonder why people here have such fondness to IKEA products. I’ll answer that with few questions.
- Do you want to organize your cluttered room?
- Do you need more space in your kitchen area?
- Are you looking for reasonable and quality duvets or pillows?
- Are you scouting innovative ideas on how to maximize your small bedroom?
These are only few reasons that people flock in IKEA. Also, the prices of most of the items are reasonable. No wonder that people from all walks of life just simply storm IKEA for any household concerns.
One of my closest friends is an IKEA girl too. She visited me here in Abu Dhabi last week after working for more than a year in Qatar. And guest what? She only asked me for one thing – to take here to IKEA in Marina Mall because she missed it as there is no IKEA shop in Qatar.
So we walked around and she shopped for some items for her new room. Then as we headed to the counter, I couldn’t help but really admire the creativity and innovation of IKEA products. It seems that they invented solutions to whatever household concerns you may have.
I would say also that the product displays are strategically planned and marketed. You can spend time also in a corner where items are priced for AED 10 (USD 3) or less.
Anyway, my friend was indeed very happy when we parted ways that night.
If you are planning to move here in UAE, IKEA is worth a visit for your household needs.
