Does anyone like IKEA kitchens?

Last reply on Nov 19, 2016

We helped our homeowner remodel his kitchen with IKEA cabinets in order to give them a mid century modern feel to their mid century ranch home. They loved it. What do you think?

We stripped the plaster off the exterior wall to give the kitchen this industrial feel.
After relocating the gas stove we were able to install this microwave  exhaust fan above the stove.

    Nicely done Katie...if you can pull off the last kitchen, it's a great look. I'm not a huge Ikea fan....you can get better quality cabinets for around the same money right now. You just have to shop it or work with a kitchen designer who has the resources to pull it together under a budget. There are several locals who post on this site who can help you!

    Great post, and I love all the feedback. While I have never done one, I have quite an interest in it. I think that Ikea has it's place in the kitchen world... and in fact, a connection I have uses Ikea exclusively in her kitchen renovations. Great examples: http://www.eco-modernism.com/

    and actually, I have changed my mind about IKEA, especially since St Louis is going to be getting one next year. CANNOT Wait!

    IKEA makes quality cabinets with great glides and hinges. If you assemble and install them correctly you should not have any issues. Remember all cabinets were knock-down at some point. Someone assembled every cabinet you see at the store. We have used IKEA cabinets exclusively for over four years in our buildouts.

    It looks great. Not sure I would have gone with dark appliances. But the streamlined look of the cabinets is very period. Nice job

    There is nothing wrong with Ikea cabinet boxes and internal hinges and hardware. However the drawer fronts and doors are cheap looking and there isn't a lot of variety. There are suppliers out there who have a wide variety of quality fronts for Ikea cabinets.
