[IKEA] Kitchen Event beginning June 20th, 2019

Another IKEA kitchen event is beginning on June 20th for those that missed the last one that ended mid-April, 2019.

If you are interested in help to design your kitchen, book an in-home designer soon because their appointment times fill up pretty quickly. it can be well worth it because you get your money back in gift cards as long as you purchase at least $1000 in IKEA kitchen items. The designer is familiar with all the IKEA cabinet sizing, appliances and accessories, so if you are purchasing your kitchen exclusively from IKEA then their knowledge/advise can be indispensible.

If you are interested in making a more customized kitchen but want to use the IKEA base cabinets, there are various companies that have set themselves up to work with IKEA products. Here in Ottawa we have a company called Swedish Door who offers this service.

I also discovered as I was perusing the IKEA website that they offer workshops to give you inspiration with your kitchen project

I notice it's 10% off with no appliances, 15% off with 1-2 appliances, and 20% off with 3+ appliances. Anyone know what counts as an appliance? eg does a oven range count? or a microwave?

thanks!

When I did my kitchen three years ago they were counting range fan hoods as an appliance so people were buying three of those. Haha, kijiji was flooded.

or this microwave/fan:
$199 https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/lagan-micr ... -70336457/

Thanks ya, was eyeing that $149 one as an add on for my third. Already getting the $299 rangehood to actually use so that's two. Can't decide if I should switch to the Ikea dishwasher instead of the Bosch one I had picked out or just get another $149 hood, gotta look at more reviews.

Never seen an ikea dishwasher in the wild, but I'm sure they're fine. I'm biased towards Bosch though - should be a fair bit quieter, but spring for the higher models than the Ascenta - e.g. 300/500/800.

Looks like they caught on. When I did my renovations during the last event, they allowed me to buy 3 of the $44.99 hood fan to be eligible for the offer.
The event was perfect timing for me, the gift card I received basically paid for my PAX closet.

The range hoods I didn't use sat in my house for months and I actually ended up returning them several months later without receipt and they gave me store credit.

I'm redoing my kitchen and in the market for custom cabinets. Never used IKEA products before. But a quality conscious friend of mine told me to go with Ikea. Heard the quality is quite good. Though the cost is kind of top of mind for me. Sometimes life is hard when you're single :(
Plus I'm not sure the IKEA cabinets look good on my kitchen because of its design.

AI also got a pretty reasonable quote from here: https://www.nak-cabinets.ca
Never used their products either. Anyone here has their cabinets?

I haven't had mine for long, but I believe that for the price range there are no better cabinets out there. You can make a great custom look for very inexpensive. There are undoubtedly better cabinets out there, but they will cost much more.

The Sektion cabinets have a 25 year warranty and imho the build on them is very good, again for the style and price.

The best reasons to go with Ikea are:
1. Customizable. You can easily make a very custom looking kitchen with literally thousands of options. In the planning program ( although a bit glitchy) you can go in and modify their 'stock' suggestions and make pretty much whatever cabinet you want. If you want a 24" x 40" wall cabinet with 2 24x20 doors, you can easily modify the case to do that. That is virtually impossible with other cabinets that are RTA or you pay through the nose for custom.

2. Everything fits with everything. They are all designed to fit and interchange. Inside drawers, outside, doors, handles, hinges, soft close, lighting. etc. They all work with each other.

3. The assembly in the kitchen is very good. I don't go around installing kitchens so there may be better options, but the sektion rail is a great system. You just put it close ( 1/4" ) of where it needs to be, then tighten it up, measure, level, repeat, then final tighten. Once the rails are up, the cabinets just hook on to them. The only negative about the rail system is that it's based on 12" center and not 16 so in order to hit studs and meet Ikea's 12" max you need to sometimes drill through the rail. After it's up I use cheap toggle bolts to meet the 12" spacing. Once up according to Ikea specs, it will easily be stronger than most kitchen installs ( our kitchen had a 24" cabinet held in with 3 screws in the middle because that's where the stud was ).

4. Accessories all fit and are designed for the cabinets. You don't pay through the nose for cutlery holder, or spice holder. there are a ton of items that help you organize your kitchen after it's in.

5. In 5 years, 10, probably 20, if you want to redo the fronts of your kitchen, you just pop the covers off and replace. You could redo a new ikea kitchen in a weekend.

Anyways, if you are a diy er and have semi skill you will save by going Ikea route and you get to customize as much as you like.

Here's a couple examples. When I was searching for cabinets, I couldn't find anything less than Ikea. With 20% in gift cards it made it an easy choice.

314 assembled https://www.homedepot.ca/product/eurost ... 1001053327

ikea equivalent + legs ($10) is 211 not including the gift cards https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/sektion-ba ... s59030566/

I'm going to be placing an order for kitchen stuff - willing to discount appliances upfront by the 15%/20% (pretax - gift card equivalent) for anyone who wants to hop on my order.

I have enough for the 10% - just need appliances to make it 15%/20%

PM to work it out.

In the fine print it says: "Purchases of LUFTIG Vented extractor fan 202.225.33 and TILLREDA Portable induction cooktop 504.223.90 are not eligible for this offer. "
Otherwise anything under Appliances should be valid aside from "filler items".
