Ikea reopening has been a day we have all been waiting for, but when is it going to happen?

So, is Ikea reopening anytime soon? Because, obviously, though we have missed our family and friends, we have missed being able to go to the pubs and go out for dinner, man, we have missed a trip to Ikea. So many Sunday mornings over the last few weeks we have woken up and thought, 'today is a day for Ikea, could go for breakfast, kill an afternoon looking around the room sets, maybe get a hot dog at the end'. Oh, wait, no...

But good news! There have been rumours flying around that Ikea is set to re-open soon! The date on everyone's lips seems to be the 18th May, but Ikea themselves are yet to confirm anything official, but no smoke without fire though right? 

It is easy to get excited about our fave interior store reopening, however it's important to note that no reopening date has been announced officially, and obviously the safety of staff and customers come first. Ikea have said they will only reopen stores when it is 100 per cent safe to do so and it is in line with government guidance. 

So how do you get your fix until Ikea reopens? Shop online obviously! We have rounded up our top Ikea products below, plus make sure you check out our Ikea hacks feature too for loads of inspiring ideas!
