 How IKEA kitchen planning service works

Before a kitchen planning meeting

  1. Get inspired and informed. Browse our kitchen inspiration, explore our kitchen styles/products and list your kitchen dreams and frustrations.
  2. 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.
  3. Book an appointment. Use the links above to arrange a one-on-one planning appointment, either in one of our stores or online. 


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. You'll receive a 3D design, product list, a kitchen quotation and estimates for additional services that can make life even easier (like delivery and installation). 

Use the IKEA kitchen planner to design on your own

Approach IKEA kitchen planning like making a new recipe. Getting an overview first is extremely useful, so you don’t skip a step or miss an ingredient. Watch our “How to Plan Your IKEA Kitchen” film. Learn more below about our tools and resources to help along the way. And remember, you can always book a free kitchen planning appointment or pay for additional services like measuring.

Frequently asked questions

  • Prior to your appointment, you will need to:

    • Measure your space - Please measure your space beforehand to ensure that the plans for your kitchen are as accurate as possible.
    • Choose your products – Start browsing our kitchen products now to get a better understanding of what you want. Knowing this before the planning session will make it more productive.   
  • Of course. If you have a design done by yourself in the IKEA Kitchen Planner or from a previous planning appointment our Kitchen specialists can use this during your planning appointment. 

  • In order for your Kitchen Specialist to plan accurately you will need to have your kitchen measurements prior to the planning appointment. You can take these yourself by following our YouTube video or by booking a measuring appointment, see our measuring service page for more details. 

  • Great that you are ready to purchase your new kitchen. If you require help in placing this order please book another kitchen planning appointment and a Kitchen Specialist will be able to finalise & place this order with you. 

  • No problem. Your kitchen specialist will contact you a day or so before your in-store appointment. Just let them know you would like to switch, and they will convert your booking to a virtual session and explain the next steps.

    *We understand that sometimes you need to cancel your appointment. Please try to cancel 24 hours before your time slot, so we can open it for other customers.
