Who wouldn’t love a custom kitchen, but of course, not everyone has the budget for one. Enter IKEA kitchen cabinets. These are a great option for homeowners who want to do it themselves or who want a stylish kitchen but are on a tight budget. Large or small, it’s possible to develop a plan for an IKEA kitchen design that fits your needs and your wallet. And, if DIY is not an option, it can still be affordable to hire an installer.
Coming up with an IKEA kitchen design is easy because there are a variety of tools to help you. The company offers instructional videos, a planning tool, along with other options like a measuring service, installation, and so on. As with any remodeling project, your budget is your only limit to what you choose and what additional help you need to pay for.
Whatever you select, there is plenty of inspirational material on how IKEA kitchens can be configured. The large volume of photos from the company and from other homeowners provide a good idea of the stylish colors and finishes you can use in your remodel.
While IKEA kitchen cabinetry is quite standardized, there are lots of ways to make it your own style through the use of different hardware and accessories. These details in a room are like jewelry for an outfit and can really change the look and feel of a kitchen. Some of these IKEA cabinets have knobs, others have horizontal handle s– both long and short — and some have no hardware. All yield a different style with the same basic cabinet doors.
Some homeowners really like IKEA kitchen designs because it’s possible to do all the shopping in one place for the kitchen as well as the dining area. Dining tables, lighting fixtures and all variety of dining chairs and accessories can be combined with the kitchen designs for a unified look.
