1 Light Wood Cabinet Fronts + Accent Paint
A wide blue border gives the main window in this San Francisco kitchen by Gina Rachelle Design a distinctive look. The IKEA cabinetry is paired with open shelving and cabinet fronts from the beloved brand .
2 Dramatic Arch + Splashy Allover Ikat
To give one of the five kitchens in her Dallas home an otherworldly look, designer Michelle Nussbaumer added a pointed arched wall and then swathed the IKEA kitchen cabinetry in her own extra-bold ikat design, printed on custom vinyl. Even the range hood is wrapped!
3 Custom Hardware + Butcher Block
By pairing IKEA’s white gloss cabinet doors with an “unexpected hardware choice” (towel holders by the Japanese brand !), designer Kevin Greenberg of Space Exploration gave the kitchen of this Montauk, New York, beach house a distinct personality. For the counters, he used marine-grade plywood—but IKEA offers butcher-block options, too, if you don’t feel like customizing your own.
4 Pale Green Paint + All Lower Cabinetry
When Lindsay Marcus of Resident LA decided to renovate her 1927 California Hills home, extra-large windows were added to accentuate the view, with IKEA cabinetry and Semihandmade fronts making up the new kitchen. By foregoing upper cabinetry and using a barely-there gray-green tint on the lowers, Marcus was able to give the room a wide-open feel that wouldn’t obstruct the view.
5 Light-Reflecting Surfaces + Clear Pendants
Des Moines-based designer Jillian Lare designed her sister’s kitchen—this gleaming white space with glass pendants and ample bar seating—using IKEA cabinetry. The reflective surfaces and trio of light sources (direct under the cabinets, allover from cans, and mood from the pendants) bounce light around the room even when it’s not sunny outside.
6 Brass Backsplash + Wood Surfaces
Bespoke wood fronts on the IKEA cabinets and a slim brass backsplash elevate the kitchen at Riverside House in Normandy to new heights. Thoughtful details—tiny metallic knobs, open shelves that match the cabinetry—give the whole room a custom look.
7 Up-the-Wall Tile Backsplash + Cool Gray Paint
A warm gray cabinetry color, brass pendants, and multicolor tile on the backsplash of this IKEA kitchen by Gina Rachelle Design give it a feeling of timelessness.
8 Crisp White Surfaces + Pendants
Loads of bright light and fresh flowers enliven this IKEA kitchen by Rayman Boozer of Apartment 48. The crisp fronts and open design give it an expansive feel, despite it being tucked inside a Manhattan apartment.
9 Waterfall Countertop + Bold Green Cabinetry
“The mandate was a cool, clean composition,” says Space Exploration’s Kevin Greenberg of this Manhattan kitchen that his firm designed using IKEA cabinetry. “We commissioned custom millwork doors for the lower cabinets, lacquered in a bold green hue, and had custom pulls cast and plated in polished nickel.”
10 Custom Brass Fronts + Black Surfaces
When it came to creating a chic wet bar area under a skylight, HGTV star Alison Victoria sprung for IKEA kitchen cabinetry and then topped it off with a black countertop and backsplash. The cabinet fronts were custom-designed from brass shim stock, a thin sheathing typically used for sealing joints and valves.
