As delightful as it looks when it’s all built and set up in the room, bringing your interior design visions to life, IKEA furniture isn’t the most simple flat pack furniture to put together. “Imagine if every couple had to do an IKEA furniture building test together lmao” one TikToker captioned a video that got a bunch of attention from other IKEA fans who know the struggles of trying to assemble a SONGESAND bed frame.

If you, too, know the test of patience that comes with building IKEA furniture, Household Quotes has designed an interactive tool that lays out the easiest and hardest pieces of IKEA furniture to assemble. Whether you’re a DIY newbie or consider yourself an expert in all things flat pack furniture, it’s a handy tool that will give an idea of how much time and effort your next project is going to take. Simply input the name of the unit you’re looking to build, or choose from a range of categories including beds, bathroom storage, bookcases, and more. The tool will then pull up the item(s), showing how easy—or hard—it is to assemble on a scale of one to five.

Household Quotes also rounded up the hardest and easiest furniture to build in several different categories. If you’re looking for a simple build, consider the PELLO Arm Chair, VIKHAMMER Bedside Table, LANDSKRONA Sofa, or SAGSTUA Bed Frame. If you really want to test your DIY skills and fancy a challenge, the NORDLI Chest of Drawers, FANBYN Chair, KIVIK Sofa, and BEKANT Desk are for you.

Or, if you’d like to bypass the assembling altogether, select IKEA locations offer TaskRabbit assembly in store. First introduced in 2018, TaskRabbit offers flat rate fees for IKEA products based on the item, starting at $36, and service can be booked as soon as next day.
