IKEA Kitchen Planning

The first step to planning out your IKEA kitchen is to select the style. All that’s required here is to decide on the door/drawer style. After that IKEA has an online planner, where you can design your kitchen, or you can call us. We have over 20 years experience designing and ordering IKEA cabinetry. If you do decide to plan your own kitchen it’s advised to design it at the store with their help.


  1. Spend time on a great layout, use the help of an experienced designer
  2. Plans won’t include fillers and panels. Order them separately.
  3. Give thought to cabinet styles i.e. how many drawers you want
