Give your home a facelift


The Swedish furniture retailer's new Ikea Extra Catalogue 2020 invites shoppers to an "open house" of five different homes filled with inspiration for supporting healthier habits and getting everyday life organised.

With 204 pages showcasing more than 300 new products, solutions from solo living to families with teens and young children abound.

Ikea is celebrating the launch with limited time offers from March 12, such as $49 for the Trysil bedside table (usual price $59) or Sommaraster/Krokuslilja cushions at $5.90 each.

Ikea's Extra Catalogue 2020 is now available via in-store browsing copies and the digital version can be seen on It will also be distributed to most homes across Singapore.

As sleep health is increasingly becoming a concern, this new campaign launch offers solutions for a good night's sleep - comfort, temperature, sound, light and air quality.

Experience the ergonomic effect with pillows that come in different shapes and sizes for people who sleep differently, like the $49.90 Mjolkklocka ergonomic pillow or the $9.90 Skogslok ergonomic multi-position pillow.

Launching in April, the Gunrid curtains help to purify air in the room while you sleep.

And get inspired by the Tradfri series, Ikea's home smart range that allows you to switch and control different lights to match your needs at home.

In addition, Ikea will be running the Zzzzz Sleep Week event tailored to help customers in their quest to attain better sleep. Experience talks from professionals on how to sleep better or create better bedrooms, along with amazing furnishing deals on bed frames, $1.50 breakfast deals and more happening from March 14 to March 22.

Ikea has also launched a new home insurance solution, Hemsaker, in collaboration with Etiqa Insurance in Singapore.

Priced at $59 annually, it is a comprehensive, affordable home content and personal accident insurance that covers the costs incurred due to damage to your home furniture, renovation and personal legal liability of up to $500,000 (terms and conditions apply), complementing the compulsory fire insurance that all homeowners in Singapore are required to have.

Hemsaker can be purchased online at

Ikea Family members who take up this policy now are entitled to a no-claims bonus. If there are no claims made under it within 365 days, they will receive 1,000 Ikea Family points worth $10, which can be redeemed at any Ikea store in Singapore.
