Modern Kitchen Designs…. All By Ikea

25 Jul

We have been back and forth for the longest time on where to buy our kitchen from. Our space is fairly small and we need to utilize every aspect of it well and so we felt that getting a custom kitchen was the only way to go. Well it turns out they cost A LOT and our budget, as we get towards the end of this massive project, is getting smaller by the day so spending $30k on a kitchen isn’t an option.

So we have turned back to Ikea. I have been seeing more and more great kitchens in cool modern homes using Ikea cabinetry  and then adding in higher end appliances and a custom countertop. It seems to be the way forward especially when you are designing a simple modern all white kitchen like ours will be. They offer well made cabinetry at super reasonable prices. We think ours will end up in the $5-6k range…that’s a big saving!

Check out some of these beautiful designs all using Ikea…

    Great post! I’m looking forward to watching your kitchen take shape. I think white kitchens are timeless.

    I’ve got to admit that I wasn’t an Ikea fan, but my wife has always been one. We went there to buy some presents for my wife’s birthday, and that visit has made me want to purchase a new couch from Ikea in the very near future. In fact, just like you did, we also plan to purchase a new kitchen from them, but that is a plan that’s (hopefully) going to take place close to the end of the year.

    Not only are white kitchens timeless like Curt says, but they just look great as well and can make any small space look large. Have you gone for a white design?

    I’ve just stumbled upon your blog, but I’m already looking forward to seeing this develop.
