Most of the stuff you buy at Ikea is easy to assemble and install yourself, but one thing the Swedish furniture company sells is a little trickier: entire kitchens.

Thanks to a partnership with a local website, though, you no longer have to worry about finding someone to do the job — or even doing it yourself. Ikea has partnered with hipages, the largest home improvement website in Australia, booking over 30,000 jobs per month.

When you buy a kitchen at Ikea, you'll be able to enter your requirements into an Ikea and hipages questionnaire online. Taking information such as your location, the layout of your kitchen, its components, your timing and your budget, hipages will be able to find a tradesperson in as little as a few minutes.

"We chose to partner with hipages.com.au because of the infrastructure they have built to make the difficult process of finding a good tradesperson easy," said Ikea Australia PR manager Angela McCann. "Our partnership with hipages.com.au provides a value-add service for our customers, enabling them to select tradesmen and manage the installation process of our kitchens in their homes."

The service is available in Ikea stores throughout New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Buyers in other locations can use the service from home.
