Before & After IKEA Kitchen

beverlyflaApril 19, 2011

Have mostly completed my kitchen redo. Just waiting to purchase a new slide in range & beverage fridge. Did some extensive remodeling to get this new layout.

Used IKEA Applaud Cabinet Doors, IKEA Pulls, IKEA Sink & Faucet & even IKEA plastic laminate counter tops.

Custom designed & built the hood & did some special cutting to get the stainless steel shelves from IKEA to work.

Everything is in the drawers, even pantry items & I only have one upper cabinet for my glassware.

I am very pleased with the cabinets now a year later. Holding up beautifully. All the bells & whistles I could ask for. Allows you to customize and I wouldn't go back to framed, typical wood cabinets ever again.

This is the first time I'm attempting to post links to pictures so I'm keeping my fingers crossed this works.

Here is a link that might be useful: My New IKEA Kitchen

Looks great! I love how much storage you have and still how open the kitchen looks. We are doing IKEA as well. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Thanks for sharing.

I love your kitchen Beverly. What kind of countertop do you have?

What a difference. Looks great. You must be thrilled with the changes. I really like the open shelving on either side of the range. A real focal point.

The black, white, and lovely umber color combination would not have occurred to me in a million years, but it looks fantastic.

Please make sure it gets in the Finished Kitchen blog, because I think a lot of people will be inspired by the change from nice to polished and elegant.

Great work.

Love the white and all the drawers! I'm trying to decide if I want all white modern and yours really looks great!

Curious how that tall cluster of cabinets was created? Is that the wall cabinets turned to open downward, and then turned sideways up higher?

OMG! I was going to comment on how much I liked your new kitchen, but then I saw the view from your sink. WOW! Awesome job.
