Ikea is known for its low price and product variety, and caters to the largest possible number of people, including people with special needs, tastes and different budgets. Today, however, the most decorative items and furniture are reserved to a minority of wealthy people.
The Ikea product range is vast:
- it covers a large number of functions: the consumer can furnish his or her entire home with the IKEA range
- The assortment is varied: everyone can find their own style of furnishings
- The range is coordinated.
The products are affordable but not at the expense of quality: most of the furniture and some accessories are tested (using real situations) in accordance with European and international standards or norms.
