Just 5 Easy Steps to a Custom IKEA + SwitchDoor Designer Kitchen You’ll Love!

Did you know that you can purchase IKEA cabinets WITHOUT the doors, drawer fronts, & panels?

Purchase cost-effective, standard cabinets from IKEA, and your doors, door fronts and panels from SwitchDoor – a custom designer kitchen for a fraction of the cost of a fully custom renovation!

Please read through the steps below to fully understand SwitchDoor’s process.

Step 1: Measure Your Kitchen

To measure your kitchen yourself, follow the simple instructions found in IKEA’s kitchen planning guide PDF.

You can also have an experienced, professional IKEA measurement technician visit your home to take measurements – visit their website to learn more about IKEA’s measurement service.

Step 2: Select Your Cabinets from IKEA

Once you have your measurements, choose the sizes and qualities of IKEA cabinets that you require for your new kitchen design, using IKEA’s online Kitchen Planner tool.

Step 3: Select Your SwitchDoor Doors, Drawer Fronts & Cover Panels

Browse the SwitchDoor website to choose custom doors, drawer fronts and cover panels to fit the IKEA cabinets in your kitchen design, to create a look that fits your unique style.

Step 4: Request a SwitchDoor Quote

Use our quote tool to get a firm estimate on the cost of the SwitchDoor custom pieces needed for your kitchen.

The cost of any project is dependent on a number of factors:

  • size of the project (how many cabinets / doors / drawers / etc.)
  • material used (real wood or engineered product)
  • finish (clearcoat, painted, printed vinyl etc.)

For this reason, the cost of each SwitchDoor project is unique. See Estimating Your Project Costs for costing examples of complete SwitchDoor projects.

Step 5: Install Your New Kitchen

Once you have your cabinets and Blum hinges and drawer guides from IKEA (picked up or delivered), and your custom pieces from SwitchDoor1 (delivered), it’s time to complete your renovation!

1SwitchDoor requires lead time of 4-6 weeks from confirmation of your SwitchDoor order.
