Ikea Kitchen Installation Guide

I loved reading your blog and your experiance with IKEA kitchens. I’m a builder here in Oregon and have been using IKEA kitchen products over twenty years and Sektion opens the door for thousands of possibilities.in design, function and budget for the DIY like yourself’s . I find many contractors can be frustrated with all the parts and installation hardware being different than what they are use to , but it is totally worth the learning curve ! My kitchen is the old akurium with the flat birch doors and wood trim around the edges (one of the cheapest doors ) and it looks as good today as when I installed it sixteen years ago I went for the 20k dollar appliances wolf, subzero, asko and have IKEA laminate counters still going strong. The skies the limit with design. There’s also this Gal named Darlyn at Doors Your Way that will match or make any type of wood or painted door for IKEA and ship it anywhere and all you do is snap the hinge in. Good luck everyone I love the IKEA kitchens!

This part of the process is a lot like every other IKEA furniture assembly, minus the Allen wrench. The screws and hardware IKEA uses actually aren't Phillips head like most US hardware: they're a similar-but-different head call Pozidriv. The staff at your local Big Box Store will tell you that you can just use a Phillips head on them, but if you have a whole kitchen to assemble you will be much happier if you invest the $5 in a Pozidriv bit. It grips the IKEA hardware much better for less slipping and stripping as you assemble. You can get them online, and one is even included in IKEA's FIXA tool set.

I feel like a ton of people have issues with the IKEA directions because of their pictograms and complete lack of text, so you're definitely not alone. I've built a bunch of IKEA furniture over the years, as well as Target and lots of other assembly-required pieces, and honestly, I feel like the IKEA directions were far and away the best, at least for me. I didn't have a single problem with them. Target though? Oh man. I have the worst time with their directions. Like, to the point where I hardly ever bother to read them, and I just look at the pieces and the hardware and figure it out, because I am actually less likely to mess it up if I just sort of logic my way through the pieces. I'm really visual though, and a lot of times, written directions just confuse me, so I'm sure that's why IKEA works well and I pretty much suck at any other sets of directions for assembly.

We paid $59/square foot for the countertop, but that included measuring, cutting, and installation. Unfortunately IKEA has a 25 square foot minimum for custom countertop installation. That’s not a problem for most people, but our tiny kitchen only needed 23.5 square feet, so we ended up paying a little bit more than we needed to. Oh well. We did shop around a bit, but we couldn’t find anything we liked in our price range. Also, it seemed like a lot of other companies didn’t want anything to do with this small job. I’m happy we went with IKEA’s countertops.

I totally agree that other flat-pack wannabes are way worse. As much as I gripe about Ikea's quality sometimes (particle board for everyone!) assembling some furniture from other manufacturers has made me appreciate how much work has gone into the Ikea stuff. It's good for what it is, though that may be damning with faint praise. I will say that the kitchen is a whole new ballgame compared to the rest of the furniture. This is mostly because the modular nature means you've got 3 or 4 totally different products that come together to form one cabinet, and each product has its own instructions. Reading through everything beforehand is essential to your sanity when doing an Ikea kitchen… and also the last thing I want to do when I'm excited about furniture assembly.

We purchased quartz countertops through IKEA, so they arranged the measurement, cutting, and installation through their local provider. We picked “Organic White” with an “eased” edge, no backsplash, and a farm sink cutout. Ceasarstone was the manufacturer, and the installation was done by one of IKEA’s local partners.

We originally planned to do IKEA in the kitchen, but they were taking so long to ship that we cancelled the order (I'm talking over one month). I am obsessed with IKEA's online room planning tool, and it did ultimately help us plan the room even though we ended up going with another retailor. We found solid wood cabinets at Home Depot for about 60% of the cost of what we had spent at IKEA. Shrug. Unfortunately not customizable at all.

We loved our IKEA kitchen! We had to do all of our planning “long-distance” as we live on an island. Between the on-line planner, the catalog planner and our dedicated telephone person, all went great. Our kitchen delivery was 96 boxes! And even with a couple of mistakes (ours and theirs) things were sorted quickly and painlessly. It was a show stopper kitchen. Sadly we no longer live in that home, I miss my kitchen a lot. I just thought I’d share my experience, I would never hesitate to go the IKEA route again.

I have never had a successful Ikea installation. You're my hero. (In Ikea's defense I gave up a good 15 years ago so they might have progressed past the baffling pictograms , mystery connectors, misplaced holes and split veneers.)

Now that's how being a handy man is done! That huge mistake scene really made me smile. It reminded me of some of my dearest memories, when I was far from an experienced handyman nor electrician and when I mean far I mean I would suicide rather than go fro an ikea installation, xoxo. Ikea is more than optimistic about how easily their screws can pierce the cabinet veneer.. May God have mercy upon inexperienced flat pack fitters, hallelujah.

We are in the process of designing our kitchen now. I have everything in my shopping list right now on the IKEA website. It looks like you have the same cabinets that I have chosen. It’s called an off white, but doesn’t look bad in your kitchen! I was so thankful to come across this post. I’ll be heading to my IKEA next week to make sure our plan is correct, but my husband is a contractor, so I’m not to worri d about the space planning. Thank you again!!!

Measuring. As we mentioned, you’ll need to account for everything in the space, including uneven floors or walls. If you’re not keen on that, Ikea can measure your space for about $250 in most areas. If you buy an Ikea kitchen, the retailer will refund the measuring fee.
