CarcaseVerified BuyerThe unit was a great base to build a bookcase from.4
Everything I bought was perfectVerified BuyerEverything I bought was perfect for my kitchen I did it all myself and am really happy with it . I took the plunge and ripped out my old kitchen but by bit replacing as I went along my husband didn’t think I would be able to do it I’m sure but I did so na na na na na5
Ideal unitPACNZPerfect size for hiding a mains stopcock and storing all cleaning materials.5
Good storage cabinetGraham 68Good unit which accommodated different size drawers of choice.4
Potentially good for filling a problematic gapAmanda 2019This for my new IKEA kitchen is lovely but I had to buy it to correct problems after the kitchen was fitted - the kitchen itself is lovely but several things were unfinished so I have had to pay to get them mended - for instance there was a hole left in the floor, so I had to get my builder to move the cabinet across at great expense - he couldn't understand why the IKEA fitter didn't do that at the time, or why he didn't seal the worktops (so water has run down the gap behind the sink and soaked everything). It was a bit disappointing though I would like to stress that the kitchen units themselves are really lovely and the worktop is super.5
Great productWoody25Solid construction. Parts accurately cut. Straightforward assembly5
brilliantdesignisi just love these units. so much storage due to the sizes and use of every mm. Huge flexibilty to move shelfs baskets drawers around, and the price is the best u can find for all these functionalities. these kitchens are always my number 1 choice.5
Kitchen updatejenny538We bought this to extend our existing kitchen. It is bigger than any other make so we expected some obstacles in fitting the doors and the plinth. It looks good at the end. Loads of storage space. I hd an Ikea kitchen 10 years back and the top part was a proper wood, now there is only a thin piece of metal to hold the work top which surpriced me. Only time will show if it works well4

Great quality!AB1980Product’s great quality and price. Definitely a good choice.5
Great productSolid, easy to assemble carcass with multiple internal fittings available; shelves, drawers, etc.5
goldiejhEasy to assemble. Very good quality5
Unit fine but...Anne207Nothing wrong with the unit but unfortunately the salesperson specified the wrong shelf size for the unit so when we came to install it we weren't able to fit the whole unit and needed to take the shelf back - so do check yourself that the correct item has been specified - don't assume the experts will get it right.3
Very poor qualityAman BhachuThe quality of this product is very poor. Once assembled it does not feel stable. If you get a small amount of water on the joints, such as when you fit tap, the frame will swell.1
Really sturdy cabinetTamtam3These cabinets do not have the depth at the back for wiring etc that standard cabinets from B&Q, Wickes etc etc do - but that’s precisely why I wanted them - far more storage space in the front.5

A kitchen that took us around the world

Whatever your dream kitchen is, it’s probably different from many other people’s dreams. This we learned when researching kitchen desires around the globe. Our conclusion for the METOD kitchen system: it should make it possible to design the best kitchen for you – whatever your preferences and living situation.

Our ambition is to help as many as possible to have a kitchen they'd love to be in. We started sketching. “When we created METOD, it was our biggest ever kitchen change, so it's fair to say we were very keen to get it right,” says technician Klas-Ola Nilsson.

Research from around the world

So, what would people’s dream kitchen be like? We surveyed thousands of people, visited hundreds of homes and worked with food industry professionals. “We found if there's one thing in common with kitchens around the world it's that they're different.” Klas-Ola says. “For as many people who dream of an open space kitchen, there are people with a small space, or a space that cannot be changed that much.”

From research to result

One element became blindingly important. “We realized we needed a kitchen system that could adapt to different sized spaces in a way that hadn't been done before,” Klas-Ola says. “So, we developed cabinets that could fit almost anywhere.” Different sizes can be mixed to best fit the room and they'll still fit together – without odd ends. The clever inside can be personalized to support your kitchen needs and activities, too.

Ready for the future

An adaptable kitchen fits better with how you like to cook, both now and in the future. Whether you start craving a more professional kitchen, or just want to start using it for more activities, we would love METOD to help out. “There's nothing to say that METOD is set and fixed now,” Klas-Ola says. “People’s ideas on what a dream kitchen should do is always evolving. To meet future needs, METOD will evolve, too.”

Function solution

Building blocks for the kitchen

METOD frames provide the base for your new kitchen. Choose between base cabinets, wall cabinets and high cabinets in many different widths. Wall cabinets and high cabinets also come in different heights. If you want to use a corner, choose a corner base cabinet with a carousel that makes it easy to reach what's inside. There are even special frames for a built-in single or double oven. Perfect if you want to have the oven at a comfortable working height. Complement with practical UTRUSTA and VARIERA interior fittings.

Material

What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill waste – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a valuable resource instead of being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look. The day your sofa or bed needs replacing, the material in the particleboard can be recycled into something entirely new.
