What are fillers?


IKEA kitchen cabinets are standard. To fit  them in to specific spaces the IKEA kitchen installers have to use fillers.

The customers often ask, what fillers are?

Filler is a strip of material used to fill space between cabinets.

In the corner the shape of filler depends on walls angle. Ideally you have to have 90 degrees corner. But who is having the ideal walls ?

The corners can be bigger or smaller which is calling for different filler shape. To have precise and clean result, the installer has to have carpenter skills.

IKEA kitchen installation ( Grimslov white ),


Upper stove hood position demanded this size of the right cabinet.

The space was too big just for the stove only. In order to rationally use the empty corner we created custom cabinet from 12 " base cabinet. This cabinet will be used for bulky flat items ( trays, cookie sheets and etc ).

 Custom door  created from drawer front of  older Akurum Adel IKEA kitchen ( there is no 6 " drawer front in current Section system ). Small space of countertop will be used for spices.

 No waste space !!!

 We had a pleasant opportunity to work with interior designer Veronica Martin . And these are some of the pictures we took during the process of  IKEA kitchen installation with her.

 It was a combination of IKEA RINGHULT glossy white style doors & custom made doors . In order to camouflage the odd wall we had to create falls doors paneling next to the customized pantry.We assembled the falls doors to the 63 x 110 " plywood sheet ( huge and heavy ! )  and attach it to both wall behind and the pantry on the right.

The whole process was quite challenging but the result was rewarding.

Some people like crossword puzzles - we like IKEA puzzles.


 This blog is our weekly journal about IKEA installation journey : our challenges, tasks and decisions. 

 We worked for many years with these kitchens and our conclusion is : IKEA kitchen is not as simple as it seems. It has thousands of possibilities and in order to obtain the perfect look you need knowledge, experience and creativity. 

 We are conversation friendly. Ask your questions - we will think together.

Do you want to install IKEA kitchen yourself ? Lets talk about this.


Yes, IKEA its easy.You may deliver it, assemble it , have fun with it. If you can tell the difference between file and nail file and enjoy reading instructions - you can do it.
You can play with shelves, chairs, bed frames etc. but if you think of easy IKEA kitchen installation with your hand tools- here comes another story.
 All available instructions provided by IKEA ( brochures, movies etc. ) do not explain how to customize your IKEA kitchen. The result is rather primitive and standard.
 Your kitchen is an investment. Its the most expensive room in the house and its worth taking seriously.
 During our years in business we were called many times ( check our testimonials ) to finish kitchens which were installed by handymen.
 You can certainly assemble your cabinets following available instructions but to do it properly is not too easy. Very important is to have all corners at the right angles. Wrong angle will not allow you to adjust doors and to get a right level for counter-top installation.  Correct cabinet assembling is important and for inexperienced person is time consuming.

IKEA kitchen ( Bodbyn white ) installation in small condo apartment.​


​Standard base cabinet would not live enough space for the passage way to the balcony. 

 On the right corner there is a balcony door ( not shown on the picture) Standard base cabinet would not leave enough space for the passage- way to the balcony.

 Smart solution was - to use wall corner cabinet for the base. The truncated shape of this cabinet leaves plenty of space for using balcony door.

 Because the depth of both cabinets was not the same - it required light customization.

IKEA kitchens VS other kitchens


The decision to get an IKEA kitchen came down to few factors :


Price ( per linear foot ) :

 -  IKEA kitchen $60 - $140 

 - semi - custom kitchen  $150 - $900 (are selected from existing designs and prefabricated off-site in standardized sizes, but

                                          with many options in terms of sizing, styles, materials and finishes)

- custom made  kitchens $500 - $1200


Quality 

 Some people are suspicious of IKEA cabinets, since they are made of partical board. In fact most of kitchen cabinets available on the market are also                  made of partical board.

 They better suitable for eco friendly house because they  are made in Europe and passed stricter European demands for materials.

 High - quality hardware : metal drawers with really superb hardware and hinges ( made in Austria by famous BLUM ) with drawers and doors                      dampers for soft - closing.


Warranty !!!

 What company on the market will promise 25 years warranty for this price ?! This is solid proof of high quality of IKEA kitchen.


Always in stock

IKEA keeps everything in stock ready to buy. If you happened to receive damaged part, just take replacement from the store,

With custom kitchens any mistake delays the process. The companies have to make replacement again from scratch,


Plan your kitchen yourself

Choosing IKEA kitchen you can skip on  such expensive procedure as design ( $250 - $800 ). You can design your kitchen using IKEA Kitchen Planner.


IKEA kitchen system is smart

You can always upgrade IKEA kitchen if you wish. Lets say you are tired with your old kitchen look, leave old cabinets and change doors and panels.

It is possible also to disassemble IKEA kitchen and use it in other place,

IKEA kitchen cabinets are versatile. They will work in laundry room, bathroom and any space which require custom cabinets,

IKEA kitchen installation in progress.

You have old kitchen, which is, well , not too old and too shabby. But... You are probably just tired of old look and dreaming of something new and trendy.


The cabinets are still solid. how about refacing them ? Will the kitchen look brand new ? Will it refacing save a lot of money ?


It sounds quite simple, fast and save money saving. You go to IKEA store, select the doors, buy them and install. That is it.

But it not always that easy in reality.

It may work smooth if you have standard IKEA kitchen cabinets, than it is fairly easy just to find standard doors to match and buy them. It will not be same if you have cabinets from other kitchens and IKEA doors and panels do not match them.

But even if the cabinets are from IKEA, there are some things to consider :

- you have to create the new plan for your new kitchen, do all the measurements, order new doors, panels, drawers, which takes a lot of time,

- old parts removing could be tricky and you can expect problems with the old hardware as well,

- the cabinets must be solid and straight

Even if all steps are done successfully, will the kitchen be brand new?  Wait until you open the doors of the cabinets. Looks perfect? Not reaqlly. May be, if the existing are fairly new and in dissent condition. Otherwise, we believe you would regret you had not changed it totally.
