For decades IKEA has been known as the Swedish furniture store—the place you can go to get trendy, inexpensive pieces for the home. Recently, however, they’ve branched out into the fixed realm of kitchen cabinets. Much like their other offerings, IKEA cabinets are very basic in design, without much ornate detailing. Here’s some more info about their offerings.
IKEA cabinetry is basic in design, but extremely reasonable in price. The total cost will vary depending on the design, material choice, and size of the kitchen. IKEA does offer a kitchen planner that can estimate the cost for you here. For a price quote on installation costs, get a couple estimates from local contractors.
When compared to other, more customizable kitchen cabinet brands, IKEA doesn’t have the most durable products. They are created for the DIY type on a budget, so if you’re looking for cabinets to last the life of your home, IKEA may not be the way to go.
With normal kitchen wear and tear, IKEA cabinets are very easy to maintain. Keep them free from dirt and dust by regularly wiping them down with a clean, damp cloth. Get rid of tougher stains with a solution of dishwashing detergent and warm water. Avoid using abrasive household cleaners and always wipe cabinets dry after cleaning.
IKEA cabinets can either be purchased online or in one of their stores. You can look at their website to find the closest location to you or enter your zip code into their shipping estimator to determine how much it will cost to have them sent to your home.
IKEA began in 1943, when Ingvar Kamprad opened up shop at the young age of 17, selling everything from nylon stockings to table runners. He began selling furniture in 1948 and eventually expanded into the all-encompassing brand name that IKEA is today.
