Large furniture, DIY and decoration shops in Barcelona

- Servei Estació: this is a DIY, decoration and creative hobbies shop in the city centre right near the Passeig de Gràcia. It is more expensive than those in the suburbs but it can save you a lot of time. It has a car park for customers that’s free if you spend more than 10 euro in store, but be warned, it’s not easy to access.
