Ikea Opening in Kansas City! #ikeamerriam

Ikea Merriam Kansas City

Kansas City get excited, Ikea Merriam opens today!! If you aren't already super jazzed that this swedish furniture mega store has landed in the metro let me take this opportunity to totally sell you on why Ikea is my favorite place to buy home essentials.  Beautiful design, great selection and the best prices you'll find are all reasons to be totally stoked that you can just go browse any day your heart desires. You see half my house is from Ikea but I've had to do all that shopping in rushed trips where I drive to Minneapolis to go.  I'm so thrilled that we can go anytime and I no longer have to purchase everything I want at one time!! Seriously friends I don't think I can relay the excitement through a blog post.  I've pulled some of my favorite items from Ikea for you in these 2 collages and then below are some awesome photos of the showrooms you'll see inside our store.

I was invited to a media preview last week where they fed us a beautiful swedish lunch and then took us on a tour through the store.  I had kind of forgotten how much I love ikea and then it all came flooding back walking through showroom after showroom.  We weren't able to purchase anything and I'm going to admit I was getting a little jittery knowing that I wanted everything and couldn't purchase anything!

The food at Ikea is delicious and of course at a great price.  On Tuesdays kids eat free (without any other purchase!) and they have a great "grocery" section with swedish food products to buy to take home.

If you've never been to an Ikea I'll give you a rundown- the top floor is the showroom where they have a ton of different rooms setup to give you inspiration on how to place and decorate and use their furniture and accessories.  Its total inspiration and makes you want to just tear down everything you have in your house and start from scratch.  Seriously.  Ikea sells furniture but something a lot of people don't realize is they sell cabinets, countertops, sinks, appliances, flooring and everything you need to build the inside of your house.  Seriously KC get excited!

My advice is go to Ikea, make a list of what you want, come home and make sure you have the space for it and really want it and then go back and buy it.  There is so much there that its easy to be overwhelmed so making multiple trips will make it all easier.  Hey maybe I'll see you there! :)
