Myth: IKEA Kitchens Are All Modern PDF Print E-mail

Many people believe IKEA cabinets are all contemporary or modern in styling. While it is true that there are many modern, even ultra-modern styles, there also doorstyles which are traditional, vintage, or country, just to name a few. 

Beadboard, dovetails and rails and stiles are just some of the details that lend a more traditional feel to some doors.  You can also significantly alter the look of a kitchen through the use of accessories and hardware.  Consider this:

  • Add Pronomen or Numerar wood butcherblock countertops to a beadboard style door such as Stat  for a country farmhouse feel.
  • Use cut glass knobs on a white or cream frame and panel door like Adel or Lidingo to get a vintage look.
  • Try attaching gathered fabric to the inside of Fagerland glass doors for French country decor.
