New Estate

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

4 min read

I made a decision just a few days in the past that I used to be going to order IKEA cupboards for my studio, and simply be achieved with agonizing over choices. I’ve spent hours over the past three days poring over the cupboard choices that IKEA provides, and I’ve my picks in my on-line buying cart. I’ve achieved every part besides hit that remaining order button. So let me present you what I’ve chosen.

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

That is the wall with the floral wallpaper. It really seems like this…

So the concept 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 title of their entire kitchen cupboard line, and then you definitely select the colour/fashion 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 remaining, and it comes with no particulars on the doorways and drawer fronts. It is a bonus for me since that makes including trim very simple (which, after all, 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 seemed, 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 downside.

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 high 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 unique imaginative and prescient. And as soon as I get all of it trimmed out (I’ll add crown molding across the high), I feel it’ll look incredible!

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

Right here’s what that wall really seems like…

I made a decision so as to add extra storage to this space than I had initially deliberate, so as a substitute 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 high of these bases, I’ll use these 15-inch-deep upper cabinets

After which I’ll high 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 is going to look one thing like this…

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

That leaves the wall simply contained in the doorway from the breakfast room. You may 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 correct of that door.

I really didn’t choose something cupboards for that wall but. I simply merely can’t determine how I would like that wall organized, after which I began to query whether or not I even needed 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 perhaps 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 want 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 transport 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 achieved, I’d estimate that these two partitions of cupboards will are available in at round $5000.00.

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