10 Ploys IKEA Uses to Make You Buy Their Stuff

IKEA stores are like Disneyland for adults: people go there not just to buy furniture, but to have fun and maybe even a little adventure. In this magic place, logical thinking disappears, and people start to fill their shopping carts with completely unnecessary things. As it turns out, the Swedish giant has a few tricks up its sleeve that they use to reprogram the thinking of their customers.

GIGGAG has done a little bit of research and learned about the techniques that this store uses to manipulate its customers. We wrote this article so that you don’t get manipulated the next time you visit an IKEA store.

2. IKEA Mattresses Have A non-standard Size. And They Do it on purpose.

The sizes of some mattresses are a little different from what we are used to. It seems that this is no big deal — just buy a new bed base and that’s it. But there is one small thing: the bed sheets. Regular factories make regular-sized bed sheets and they are not the same size as IKEA mattresses.

As a result, you are forced to buy the IKEA brand bed sheets only. The same goes for pillows: for some of them, there is only one place where you can buy a pillowcase. And you know the name of that store.
