    Default Ikea's services

    Finally moving! Does Ikea install curtains? Also, do they assist with constructing their furniture?

    I don't think they outsource their mechanical engineers

    They do not! and beside of this, most of their stuff is worthless, especially their furniture.

    They seem to have an assembly service. At least that is posted on their webpage. Servicio de Ensamblaje - IKEA Santo Domingo

    I happen to like Ikea furniture. I like the lines, I like the look as do millions around the world. I am not a fan of overstuffed mahagony which is what seems to be available on the rest of the market. And, if I do not like in ten years, I can change it without feeling awful.

    I did not have much luck with a book case that I bought which was evidently not field tested with actual books and sorta split at the bottom. But the chairs and sofa beds have been fine.

    Don't know about the curtains but I hung mine with their cable assembly which works very well on the odd corner windows.

    Curtain installation is a little involved but doable. I installed IKEA panels and pleated. It involved maintaining level and choosing the correct height for the bar. If you are in Santiago I can help you.

    Assembly of IKEA furniture is easy because of the good documentation.

    according to ikea page they have assembly service, you can "buy" that option when making a purchase. but putting it together is very easy, i bought from them in the UK and here and always did all the work myself. very simple.

    I would say in 2-3 years.
    I am the less handy person on the planet and I can assemble IKEA furniture myself and even installed curtains rods. I hate it, but it s not rocket science.
    In DR, I would just pay someone to do it.

    well, Aida, I don't have kids so mine lasts perhaps longer... and I am retired so perhaps more thrifty! I have already HAD the chairs for four years.
