Useful Question for your shopping!

Hi everyone, it is Min here.

I have been redesigning my kitchen and found myself asking this question a lot:

“Does this come in another color?”

The photo below is of the different timber flooring I get to choose from.

If you know me well, you will know that I take forever to make a decision, even with just two options.

So getting me to decide between a million options is just unthinkable.

But I am slowly getting used to it!

I had to pick everything from handles, cabinets to kitchen appliances!

So back to the one question I have been recycling a hundred times daily.

“Does this come in another color?”

The structure of this sentence is super handy and can be altered to be used in a variety of settings.

For example, food!

As you can tell, I have been frequently visiting IKEA and thus settling my meals there too. Who can resist IKEA meatballs right?

By tweaking the useful question in this situation, you could ask:

“Does this come in a larger/smaller size?”


“Does this come with drinks?”

Speaking of drinks, a warm cup of coffee is what I needed after all that kitchen planning.

It is great that IKEA offers bottomless coffee!

Anyway, I hope you have found today’s useful question…um…useful (I should really think of another adjective apart from “useful”  here to avoid sounding repetitive, but I guess it is fine once in awhile!
