Which items in your kitchen hail from Ikea?
When designing our kitchen, I decided fairly early on that I wanted as many elements from Ikea so we could maximize the savings during their 20 percent off sale. We bought our cabinets, doors, drawer fronts, countertops, and drawer organizers from Ikea. I considered getting the appliances there as well, but they had discontinued their 36” professional style range. So, I bought my appliances elsewhere.
What made you decide to source these items from Ikea?
In our first house we had our cabinets refaced, which was the cheapest option, but was still not as cheap as you might think. In our last house we did a kitchen remodel and had midgrade custom cabinetry. After a few years, you could really see the wear and tear. I decided then and there that our next kitchen would be an Ikea kitchen. My thought was I could easily freshen it up by just going down to the store, getting new doors, and changing them out ourselves since all of the sizes are standard.
