Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 by Susan

IKEA Fans member mrcysco has finished an awesome remodel of a Mid Century Modern kitchen using custom doors from Scherr’s and IKEA cabinet boxes. Total budget? Under $20K.

There is no way I could have created this kitchen without this site’s help. Not only did it give me plenty of input and ideas, but it gave me the confidence that I could tackle a project of this scale by myself. So thank YOU for having such a great resource for people like me.

No, really – thank YOU! Read on for more photos, links to the original Kitchen Planning forum thread and details on the microwave drawer mod.  Read the rest of this entry »

Undermounted 36" Whitehaus Quatro Alcove fireclay farm sink mounted in IKEA AKURUM cabinet

One of the best things about the IKEA Kitchen system is it’s amazing flexibility and modular construction. Well, ok, the best part about the IKEA kitchen systems is the incredible value you get for your money!  But the flexibility of the system and it’s fundamental DIY friendly nature of it is a major part of why we love it so much as a solution for creating beautiful, showpiece kitchens for a fraction of what it would cost to get a comparable kitchen elsewhere.

Community members have time and again proven that where there’s a will, there’s a way to make their own personal vision a reality using IKEA’s AKURUM/FAKTUM system.  jenswrens and her husband did a fantastic job mounting a non-IKEA sink in an AKURUM cabinet, and then shared their experience with the community through a detailed tutorial.  wmurray1 and nickerbokor then took the method described and used it to great effect in their own remodels. Check out the details of how they did it after the jump! Read the rest of this entry »
