Ikea Kitchens

Yesterday I was looking at a condo that was in need of some serious redesigning but was a pretty darn good buy… as I started thinking about how I could renovate on a VERY tight budget I got to thinking about Ikea kitchens. I’ve really heard nothing but great things about them but have not actually used one in a client project.  As is the case with most clients, I cannot afford 99% of what I source for them so I have to find a more affordable way to get high end looks and save my splurges for smaller touches.  Here are some IKEA kitchens that pretty much blew my mind.

Look at this kitchen from Sunset– who would ever guess a lot of the components are from IKEA?

Designer and blogger Carol Creed did a post about her love for IKEA kitchens– here are a couple of her installations.

Some more kitchens that look a hell of a lot more expensive than they are! It’s all about picking great tile (again, does NOT have to be expensive) and maybe splurging on a stone counter top!

The stone walls kinda make this one. It’s kind of cheating.

Sarah Richardson even uses them!

So have any of you installed one? Your experience and opinion?
