‘TIS THE SEASON… FOR IKEA KITCHENS

Spring is in the air, which means there’s never been a better time to revamp your kitchen with those new Ikea kitchen cabinets you’ve had your eye on for a while. It ties in to the notion of “spring cleaning” and aligns with the season’s connotations of rejuvenation and renewal. Most homeowners dream of a kitchen renovation, but they keep putting it off, afraid of the fuss and the hassle. We’ve got a handful of reasons that will help you shed those doubts and realize that you should have started yesterday.

You’re halfway there already. ‘Tis the season to fling open the windows and welcome in the sunshine, warm breezes, the fragrances of spring blossoms, and the warbling of songbirds; spring is largely celebrated as the quintessence of hope and renewal, and with good reason. What better way to embody this renewal in your home than by gifting yourself with a glorious new kitchen, complete with gorgeous new Ikea kitchen cabinets? Get out of hibernation mode and chase your dreams! You’re already up to your eyeballs in the cathartic cleaning materials and projects; since you’re keen to clean, you might as well make it worth your while.

The timing is perfect (especially if you’re hosting). The year’s most social season is coming up (confession: the memory of sweet and languid summertime dinners, barbeques, movies nights, and brunches are what secretly get us all through winter), so start off on the right foot by sprucing up your space and getting physically and mentally prepped for company! Summer and autumn are busy months, and you’ll be giving yourself a big pat on the back if you’ve taken care of the kitchen cabinet installation before your vacation and the hectic back-to-school/back-to-work period. Not to mention, the kids are still in school right now and the spouse may be busy at work—meaning your loved ones are having at least one meal away from home a day—so it will give you a bit more breathing space to juggle your new favorite project and will also allow more physical room and ease for us contractors to work our magic.

The timing is also perfect weather-wise. An equation of fresh air, longer and warmer days, and natural lighting equals the perfect formula for effectively seeing and choosing the right colors and right angles when it comes to your new Ikea kitchen cabinets, countertops, and other additions. Spring is in the air! Need we say more?

It’s less time-consuming and less stressful than you think. The more you put something off, the more stressful it gets (it might not be physics, but it’s definitely human nature).

HOW SEKTION IS REVOLUTIONIZING THE IKEA KITCHEN DESIGN

Ikea has long been appreciated for its streamlined simplicity, straightforward functionality, and extremely reasonable prices. These characteristics are embodied in every Ikea kitchen, making Ikea kitchen planning a cinch for the modern young family. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any easier, Ikea unleashed its Ikea Sektion system in 2015, taking versatility and personalization to a new level.
Some Ikea kitchen designs (L-shaped or island layouts) enable a bustling and open social gathering place; others (U-shaped or peninsulas that close off on one end) are more restrictive and promote safety by keeping kids clear while you’re cooking or cleaning. We believe that the best family-friend kitchens are proactively designed with a strategic layout. Ikea’s kitchen designs enable you to create and customize your own safe prep and cook areas. You can consult us to inform us of your needs; as your Ikea designers and kitchen cabinet installers, it’s our job and our pleasure to help you plan and provide a safe and cozy environment that caters to everyone.
Ikea’s Sektion system allows you to customize the layout and colors of your Ikea kitchen design from thousands of combinations; you can organize all exterior and interior components to fulfill all your needs. This system is wonderfully modular, allowing you to align shelf space and place drawers however you see fit. Tucking the baby’s high chair under the counter? No problem. Want the breakfast bar to cater to your kids and even serve as a homework workspace? Sure thing.
Apart from the delightful building-block functionality of its design, the Sektion system is roomier regarding its interior space. From bibs and baby food to bottles and individual food preferences, you can be sure that your growing family’s storage needs are also going to grow—exponentially. And apart from the obvious advantages of greater storage room and compartmentalization (something every parent recognizes as a superpower), this also enables the installment of integrated lighting that would enhance the kitchen atmosphere and would make navigation easier—an especially useful detail for the youngest members of the family.
From their safe and customizable layouts to their versatile and abundant storage solutions, our Ikea kitchen designs have evolved to become ever more accommodating. Ikea’s Sektion system makes the kitchen an inarguably family-friendly place—particularly for young families—and serves as a surefire component for successful Ikea kitchen planning and design.

From beginning to end, the whole team at Expert Design were wonderful to deal with! From the moment I called for an estimate, Paula was extremely responsive and helpful. Although we already had a design in mind, she was able to assist us in finding the missing elements and locating sources for materials as well as design inspiration. She was also helpful in identifying the correct quantities of certain materials we should order, e.g. tiles. If we had not accepted their advice about sourcing of our countertop, we would likely have paid more for something not nearly as nice as the countertop we ended up with, and delivery would have taken a lot longer! When it came time to do the work, Marius and Selvin were terrific. They’re both extremely nice, friendly, courteous and professional guys, who were great to have in our home for the duration of the project. They worked solidly everyday, and always had great attention to quality of workmanship and detail, including with respect to areas that will remain largely unseen, e.g. under the sink. They even made some decorative adjustments to give our IKEA cabinets a more custom-built feel, which was a terrific bonus. They were also extremely patient in answering our questions or responding to requests, and creative in problem-solving the trickier elements of the installation. For example, our ceilings were too low for a traditional hood and chimney-style extractor fan, but they figured out how to install an under cabinet fan in a way that was both functional and sleek, despite the absence of an actual cabinet to mount it to. Thanks to their hard work and efficient countertop sourcing, the entire project took one week from start to finish – less than half of the time estimated by others – a huge bonus when having to live without a functioning kitchen in the meantime. They were also very respectful of our pets, making sure never to leave the outside door open unattended, and cordoning off the construction area with plastic sheeting to minimize the spread of dust or risk of our cats exploring by themselves at night. Would that all contractors were as professional and easy to deal with! Thanks to the whole team at Expert Design, we now have a beautiful, elegant, and functional kitchen that we will enjoy for years to come. We would use them again in a heartbeat, and have no qualms about recommending others do the same!
