  2. Book an installation appointment. Our IKEA Kitchen service team can install your new kitchen.
  3.  Join the service provider for a site inspection. During this visit, the service provider checks the design vs. the floor plan and confirms measurements. We also will make sure electricity, plumbing, and HVAC have been done to fit the new kitchen layout.
  4. Get your IKEA kitchen home. Delivery is not included in IKEA kitchen installation service.
  5. Prepare your space. Clean everything out and take care of any work like patching, wall painting, redoing floors, etc. Set up a temporary kitchen. Place all packages in the room where the kitchen will be installed.

During and after an IKEA kitchen installation

  1. Live life while the pros do their work. Every IKEA kitchen installation comes with a workmanship guarantee, so you can feel confident that the installation meets the highest industry standards. 
  2. When the installation is completed, a walkthrough of the new kitchen will be performed with our install team to make sure the kitchen has been installed as planned and is meeting the customer's expectations.
  3. Enjoy cooking in your new kitchen with peace of mind for years, thanks to our warranties (detailed in our full terms and conditions).

  • The appliances need to be installed by skilled professionals. They will have the right cords for different customer's homes.

  • The usual reason a bad fit like this is that the lowest drawer hasn’t been assembled in the right way. It’s done slightly differently from the other drawers. Unfortunately, it’s not obvious that you’ve missed something until you install the last drawer. You’ll need to take another look at the assembly instructions.

  • A filler piece fills the space between the cabinet and the wall. It is cut from a cover panel. Filler pieces are necessary because you can’t install a cabinet right up close to the wall. If you don't mount a filler piece, there's a risk that you won’t be able to open your cabinet fully.

  • Yes. Our hinges are adjustable in height, depth and laterally. Our horizontal hinges work in the same way as our 110-degree vertical hinges. The main difference is that you can adjust the tension to allow for different weights of doors.

  • The recommendation is 21.5 square feet. Spread over 23⅝", you would need over 1 19/64" in height. It's important to have a ventilation grid in the toe-kick together with the ventilation above.

  • Use our SEKTION support bracket for island to keep the cabinets steady. Be sure to consult a professional before attaching to the floor, as there may be an underfloor heating system.
