If you’ve ever shopped for furniture, you’ve likely at least glanced at IKEA’s offerings! As a global furniture retailer, they have a wealth of (usually) DIY options for the home, which includes conservatory furniture. With their quirky product names and distinctive marketing campaigns, IKEA is one of the most well known options. But how do they compare?

IKEA conservatory furniture is designed for ease and affordability, offering an accessible way to meet the needs of its consumers in everyday life. These low prices are one of the main ways that they have set themselves apart. Their products are on the cheaper side – with some assembly required. If you’re competent with an Allen key and have some free time, you’re able to save compared to more premium brands.

There is more to IKEA than just accessibility and low prices. Their Swedish designs are as practical as they are affordable, addressing common decor problems such as limited space and storage, plus offering the ability to easily invest in new furniture and make a quick change to your decor without breaking the bank.

If you’re happy to do it yourself (and if you even prefer it!) then IKEA’s flat pack conservatory furniture is a good choice. When constructed correctly – and you make sure you read all the instructions in the right order! – the pieces are solid and durable, though of course they may not last as long as more bespoke, premium furniture.


Comparing one more conservatory furniture company, let’s now look at Dunelm. They are a large retailer offering a range of furniture options. They provide a fair balance between quality, affordability and style. With a wide range of options, there is bound to be something to suit most, if not all, tastes.

Dunelm offers a fair balance, too, between modern and traditional. So whether you’re looking to retain a classic feel or quickly update to follow the latest trends, you can readily find something available online or in store to suit your conservatory, summerhouse, garden room or any part of your house.

Unlike IKEA, you won’t need to construct Dunelm’s furniture yourself, generally speaking. This means they’ll reach you already put together and therefore a little more durable than the DIY alternatives. With this in mind, the pieces are competitive priced, for good quality furniture at a fair cost.

Dunelm offers a good way to keep up with the trends, and its conservatory furniture and accessories will allow you to quickly and easily add a splash of colour to refresh a room without breaking the bank. As a high street store, it’s easily accessible for most, plus it’s online presence, so you should be able to find what you need without much trouble.
