Method Base UnitVerified ReviewerEasy to assemble but doesn’t come with the feet have to buy separately & the price has more than doubled in last 12 mths since my last purchase, which is extortionate, just like the doors & worktops, all have more than doubled in price too3
Fine kitchen unitVerified ReviewerI bought an ikea kitchen in 2007, the units back then were slightly awkward sizes. These are much more flexible and offer better storage solutions however the veneer quality is no as good and have found them to be quite easily damaged3

Everything I bought was perfectVerified ReviewerEverything I bought was perfect for my kitchen I did it all myself and am really happy with it .

Good storage cabinetVerified ReviewerGood unit which accommodated different size drawers of choice.4
Potentially good for filling a problematic gapVerified ReviewerThis 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 productVerified ReviewerSolid construction. Parts accurately cut. Straightforward assembly5

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.”


What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly 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.

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.
