I have renovated more than a handful of kitchens using Ikea cupboards. When on a budget, Ikea kitchens are an accessible and flexible choice. The company has a helpful kitchen planning tool that can be used on their website. A visit to their showroom allows you to open cupboards and to get a good understanding of the product. Go ultra-modern or traditional based on your choice of door style. We have found that sourcing counters, lighting, pulls, and appliances from other suppliers diminishes the overall “Ikea effect.”
My latest discovery is Ikea Home Shopping! This is a customer service that allows you to order your kitchens, wardrobes, bookshelves, and much more over the phone, without ever going near the blue and yellow store. Moving On’s first Ikea Home Shopping order was placed for a kitchen and laundry room – it was a d-r-e-a-m.
