Right here Are The IKEA Cupboards Alternatives I’ve Made For My Studio

I made a decision a couple of days in the past that I used to be going to order IKEA cupboards for my studio, and simply be executed with agonizing over choices. I’ve spent hours during the last three days poring over the cupboard choices that IKEA affords, and I’ve my picks in my on-line procuring cart. I’ve executed all the things besides hit that remaining order button. So let me present you what I’ve chosen.

First, right here’s the drawing I did manner again in 2017 (wow…2017!!) of the entrance wall of the studio.

That is the wall with the floral wallpaper. It truly appears like this…

So the thought is to have floor-to-ceiling cupboards on both finish of the wall, and one decrease cupboard within the center. Listed here are the IKEA objects that I discovered to work on this wall.

First up, this base cabinet with six drawers for the center in a 24-inch depth.

All the cupboards are Sektion (that’s the identify of their entire kitchen cupboard line, and then you definately select the colour/type of doorways and drawer fronts to make use of on them). For the drawer fronts and cupboard doorways, I chosen the Veddinge white.

I chosen Veddinge white as a result of it’s prices lower than the remainder, and it comes with no particulars on the doorways and drawer fronts. This can be a bonus for me since that makes including trim very straightforward (which, in fact, I plan to do.) I’m additionally going to color them, so the unique coloration doesn’t matter to me. After choosing these, I remembered that John and Sherry from Younger Home Love used IKEA cupboards of their present kitchen, they usually painted them a customized coloration. I appeared, and located that they, too, used the Veddinge white, after which painted them a gentle pinkish mauve coloration. So I really feel fairly assured that I can add trim and paint these with no drawback.

For the decrease cupboard on the 2 outer sections, I went with this three-drawer base cabinet within the 24-inch depth…

And for the uppers, I went with this 15-inch-deep cabinet

And on prime of these, I’ll use this shorter 15-inch-deep upper cabinet

So as soon as I put all of these collectively, the wall will look one thing like this…

I imply, that’s fairly near my authentic imaginative and prescient. And as soon as I get all of it trimmed out (I’ll add crown molding across the prime), I feel it’ll look implausible!

For the wall within the “workplace” zone of the room, that is what I had initially envisioned…

Right here’s what that wall truly appears like…

I made a decision so as to add extra storage to this space than I had initially deliberate, so as an alternative of getting the center part open beneath the countertop, I’m going so as to add drawers.

For the 2 tall sections on both finish, I selected these 15-inch-deep base cupboards…

On prime of these bases, I’ll use these 15-inch-deep upper cabinets

After which I’ll prime these off with these shorter 15-inch-deep upper cabinets

And for the center sections, I chosen these 15-inch-deep bases with three drawers.

So as soon as all of that’s put collectively, it’ll look one thing like this…

The cupboards for that wall will want some spacers between them to make them match the house correctly, however it’ll work.

That leaves the wall simply contained in the doorway from the breakfast room. You’ll be able to see the 15-lite door that results in the breakfast room within the image beneath, and I had deliberate to place a big financial institution of cupboards on the wall to the proper of that door.

I truly didn’t choose something cupboards for that wall but. I simply merely can’t resolve how I need that wall organized, after which I began to query whether or not I even wished or wanted cupboards on that wall. So I’m going to carry off on that for now. Perhaps I’ll do some open cabinets, or possibly that wall doesn’t want any storage in any respect. All of those different cupboards, along with the storage closet that’s within the room, could also be all of the storage I would like for the room.

So all collectively, the cupboards for these two partitions come to $3948.00. I nonetheless want so as to add some facet panels to my order. After which gross sales tax (for the cupboards, minus the facet panels and filler strips) is $325.71, and delivery is $179.00. So altogether, I’m taking a look at round $4600.00. After which as soon as I get them, put them collectively, and set up them, I’ll add some trim, paint them, and add some fairly drawer pulls and knobs. So as soon as all is claimed and executed, I’d estimate that these two partitions of cupboards will are available at round $5000.00.

That looks as if a really cheap worth for cupboards that I don’t should construct from scratch, and that include doorways, drawer fronts, hinges, and so forth. Don’t you assume so?
