Due to the industry-wide impacts of COVID-19 on the supply chain, we are currently experiencing significant delays with our kitchen cabinets and fronts. While we continue working closely with our suppliers and partners to replenish stock as quickly as possible, we cannot estimate wait times, nor can we guarantee complete availability if you choose to move forward with your kitchen purchase today. If we are unable to book all pieces required, we do not recommend installing your kitchen or booking your contractor until you have received all items needed to complete the install.

 How IKEA kitchen planning service works

Before a kitchen planning meeting

  1. Get an overview. Check out 5 steps to buying a kitchen to better understand what’s involved in planning a new kitchen from measuring to installing.
  2. Book an appointment. Use the links below to arrange a one-on-one planning meeting or our tailored interior design service.
  3. Get inspired and informed. Browse our kitchen inspiration, explore our kitchen styles and products and list your kitchen dreams and frustrations.
  4. Measure your kitchen space and document required specifications. It’s critical this step is done correctly at the start to avoid costly surprises later. Learn about our kitchen measuring service.
  5. Download and complete the kitchen planning meeting checklist. This will help ensure an efficient, productive meeting.

During and after a kitchen planning meeting

  1. Bring your kitchen measurements, specifications, meeting checklist, dream/frustration lists and favourite inspirational ideas to your planning meeting.
  2. Let our co-worker take the lead. Together, we’ll tackle everything from finding a door/cabinet front you like to designing a layout that meets your needs and hopes. You’ll get a 3D design, a parts list, a kitchen quote and estimates for additional services that can make life even easier (like delivery and installation).
