This Is IKEA Now~
There’s a reason IKEA cabinets are such a popular choice for new kitchens: they’re incredibly affordable. The cabinets are also quite versatile, lending themselves to all kinds of configurations and finishes, some of which may not look anything like you’ve seen in their catalogs. Here are a few of my favorite IKEA kitchens that might have you reconsidering your next kitchen remodel.
This stunning custom-looking space is actually a combination of several IKEA pieces. Spraying the IKEA cabinets with a unique color gives the space a custom feel, and utilizing eye-catching lighting over the island makes the space feel more luxurious and distinct.
Bodbyn cabinet fronts give this IKEA kitchen a more traditional look.
This kitchen features IKEA cabinets paired with custom Rocky Mountain Hardware pulls (and a waterfall solid-surface counter).
This kitchen makes use of IKEA cabinet bases and Semihandmade Shaker-style cabinet fronts, for a custom look at a fraction of the price.
This is my kitchen that I designed in my last house.
In this Los Angeles home, semi-custom cabinetry with rich brass hardware harmonizes with an IKEA sink and faucet to create a seamlessly stylish kitchen. The unique cabinetry color and classic brass accents allow the more affordable aspects of this design to easily blend in.
This is a kitchen designed and made by Semihandmade. Their concept is ‘their systems. our doors’. They have a broad collection of doors for IKEA bathroom, close, and media cabinets.
This professional-looking stainless steel kitchen is a combination of IKEA cabinets and stainless steel cover panels. Utilize brass hardware on stainless steel cabinets for a modern take on industrial design.
Here are a couple sites that will give you first hand advise on how to design, buy and build an IKEA kitchen:
Just A Girl and Her Blog is another GREAT site to look at before going to IKEA to build your kitchen.
Pay extra attention when picking your knobs/pulls, countertops and lighting. That’s where your splurge should be. Go for the nice stuff since you saved a little on the cabinetry. I would suggest doing some research online and buying something unique. These are the elements that personalize your space. Try to stay away from the trends!
A 16 linear foot IKEA Kitchen, top and bottom drawers with all of their bells and whistles is around $6500 not including appliances.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO INSTALL!!!! Please do not attempt to do it yourself. There are plenty of qualified (some IKEA certified) assemblers on Craigslist. It makes all the difference between a solid, long lasting kitchen and a flimsy system where the drawers won’t shut properly.
