While Ikea has cheap crap stuff, they also have cheap and not so cheap quality stuff.
their bookshelfs are actually very good, despite being cheap. they're solid and you can set them up as you please. their kitches are made the same as all the other kitche makers do today, unless you get a specially made one from a local carpenter, even then it's probably made the same mostly. their regular kitchen tables and chairs, same stuff as everyone else, drawers and tv future are generally of great quality.
a lot of peopel complain about ikea because they've never used or checked them out. sure they have some cheap crap stuff to, but so does every furniture store/maker.
