IKEA Place uses ARKit and is compatible with iPhone 6s and newer. See below for iPad compatibility.

IKEA Place lets you virtually 'place' IKEA products in your space.
The app includes 3D and true-to-scale models of everything from sofas and armchairs to footstools and coffee tables. IKEA Place gives you an accurate impression of the furniture’s size, design and functionality in your home so you can stop wondering and start doing.

To use the app:
- Make sure the room is well lit and hold your smartphone at waist level
- Scan an empty piece of floor by moving your device around
- Search the list of available products and select one
- Find an empty spot in the room, rotate and place the product there
- Select other products and add them to your room to make a new Place.

The app lets also you share your 'place' with social apps like WhatsApp or Instagram. And ultimately, order your products through IKEA Store. Look out for updates as more IKEA products and additional functionality arriving soon.

Editors’ Notes

Visualize how new furniture would look in your home with AR.

Works extremely well- but a few suggestions


I have to say I’m incredibly impressed at how well this app works. It’s probably the best implementation of ARKit I’ve seen yet. I just used it during an open house to get an idea of what the living room would look like furnished and it was incredibly helpful. Some of the models actually look lifelike.

My only suggestions is regarding saving photos. They save in portrait mode, even if you are holding the phone in landscape mode requiring you to manually rotate each one after the fact. That and the process of hitting the shutter button, then hitting the share button and selecting save image is tedious. It would be better if it saved directly to the camera roll so you can fire off multiple shots from different angles uninterrupted.

Other than that it’s well executed and coming in very handy.

Developer Response

Hej anarchyx34. Thanks for your great feedback. We'll pass it on to our developers, who are always working on improving the app.

So difficult to use!


Bugged out on me multiple times when I tried starting up. Told me to scan the floor until yellow dots disappeared, but no yellow dots appeared. Four force quits later it finally let me scan the floor, but it got the angles wrong and I couldn’t figure out how to rotate the furniture. Put a few things down at the wrong angles, then they randomly decided they should be halfway up the wall.

Needs a tutorial! Do I literally point the camera straight at the floor, or do I need the place where the floor meets the walls? How do I rotate? It looks like I can, but tapping, swiping, or trying to grab the wheel-like circle under the furniture does nothing—unless that’s a bug. Is there some way to save your work?

I would have sunk a year of my life into this app easily, it’s such a great idea, and I almost certainly would have bought some of the pieces that looked cool, but the app is such a PITA that it’s not worth my time.
