Question IKEA in Alaska

After a visit to the Portland IKEA we have decided on an IKEA kitchen here in Spenard, Alaska (neighborhood in Anchorage). Since we don't have a store within 1500 miles, we thought this forum would be a great place to ask some hopefully not too dumb questions. And if they've been asked before (likely). please direct us to the right threads. We don't want to reinvent the wheel.

1. We want a 15" pull out wastebasket. Is BPO15 the right unit - and I assume we add the basket?

2. What do the cabinet backs look like? We are going with, we think, Adel Birch, and have one run of base cabinets backs that will be open to the living area (like an island).

3. We like the Perfekt plate shelf but it doesn't come in Adel birch - at least that finish isn't shown. Do we have to live with a different finish there - and if so, which of the 3 that IKEA offers would look best with the birch?

4. We're including a 15H x 24D x 36W cabinet over the refrigerator. The Planner required us to put in a tall end panel there, which would cover the side of the fridge, before we could place the cabinet. If we do that, how do we attach the bottom of the panel since we can't attach it to the fridge? Or do we buy a smaller end panel and cut it to fit the cabinet, leaving the side of the fridge exposed (which is OK with us)?

We have a call into IKEA Direct to ask these and more questions about order and shipping logistics, but so far no response from them. It's only been one day.

Thanks to all!

Re: IKEA in Alaska

Welcome to IKEAFANS

1. The BPO15 configuration includes two interior drawers - which you don't need if using tall containers (yes - supplied by you)...depending on the container you choose one drawer could be included at the top - handy for garbage bags, etc. The good news is that you order exactly what you need.

2. The back of the cabinets is unfinished - use cover panels on the backside of an island or penninsula.

3. The plate shelf does not come in a birch finish (why is a mystery) - white, antique stain or dark brown (Liljestad) are the only options...I don't think any of them would look good with ADEL birch.

4. A fridge gable is attached to the floor with angle brackets.

If you have a moment, post your plan to the forum - we're big on visuals.

Re: IKEA in Alaska

Thanks for the answers.

Here is the plan. We haven't tweaked it at all - mainly just put the big pieces in place to see how they fit and how they might look. Everything is shown in ash..but we will be ordering Adel Birch when the time comes. We intend to be at the order point sometime next week - will work on things pretty hard this weekend which will likely generate more questions.

Thanks again!
