We bought our IKEA Hövåg mattress in-store.
Like standard bed-in-a-box mattresses, IKEA mattresses come rolled-up and wrapped in plastic, with convenient carrying handles.
This means buying a mattress in-store isn't impossible - but it can be impractical if you rely on public transport.
Luckily, you can also order online.
Unlike other mattress brands like Simba and Nectar, though, IKEA still charges for delivery. 🚛
Delivery fees vary according to the size of the parcel ordered.
Since mattresses are often quite large, you can expect to pay a bit more.
- Selected Day Delivery (£40): Your item will be delivered to the room of your choice within 4 - 30 days.
- Express Delivery (£50): Your item will be delivered to the room of your choice within 1 -3 days.
Once unpacked, your IKEA Hövåg mattress will slowly expand to its original size.
IKEA recommends waiting 72 hours for full expansion. ⏰
Your brand new mattress may smell a bit when first unpacked.
This is called off-gassing and it's completely normal.
We recommend unpacking your new mattress in a well-ventilated room 🏠
Ordering via Amazon
While we expect IKEA delivery costs to be cut at some point, ordering through Amazon is a good alternative.
Amazon UK has tons of IKEA products, though most of the mattresses are European imports and a little more expensive than in-store.
With Amazon, numerous IKEA products are available with free delivery. 🥳
Products are generally dispatched within 10 days of purchase.
If you're an Amazon Prime member, you'll also get faster delivery.
