Great qualityVerified BuyerGreat quality5
Metod wall cabinetVerified BuyerI purchased several items from IKEA over the years and usually I am happy with the products. However on this occasion the cabinet I received was in poor condition. On both sides the white foil is damaged so you see the wood underneath and its also chipped. On one side the laminate strip is poorly attached, it shows as well the wood underneath. After considering the hassle of sending the item back I decided to keep it. At this point I would more than likely not purchase another metod cabinet.1
EasyVerified BuyerSo easy to put together5
Good little unitVerified BuyerBought it to go in a small space within a cupboard for extra storage. It was easy to put together and fit.5
Metod 40cm wall unitVerified BuyerVery pleased with price, quality and ease of construction.5
I love the hanging rail.Verified BuyerMuch better construction than ones I’ve used before and the hanging rail makes hanging wall units a breeze. If you can live with the Ikea sizes (or like me, cut them down) I would definitely recommend them.5
DissapointedVerified BuyerIKEA have sent all packages loosely packed. All parts had smashed corners, missing fittings and peeled edges.1

Squaring the cabinet4thKitchenA previous design of wall cupboard had the back nailed to the frame. It was simple to use the back board to get the frame square. Now the back board fits into a slot and one cannot see whether it contacts the base and side before nailing. If you were to expose the board edge in four places (2 at the side, 2 at the base) by making cutouts in the rear edges of the side and base, it would be easier to ensure the backboard was in contact with both side and base.5
Great storageMum1973Exactly the right size for what we needed. Together with the shelf it fitted perfectly in the space we'd got5
EvetiIam very happy for the product. It fitted perfectly in the walls. More space, and easy to maintenance. So far, everything goes well no complaine.5
used Utrustra shelvesvinanaNeeded an under counter kitchen storage unit . After measuring I realised this would be perfect with 2 packs of the shelves I have all the space needed. Even cheaper than trying to construct ones own.5
Kitchen wall cabinetsgrusQuality is very good. Also these are deeper units than other makes. This allows for greater use flexibility, including housing a microwave.5
Amber aBrill Very happy happy happy5
Didn"t come with plastic insertsRocket1964These units come with pre drilled holes so you can decide where you want to put your shelves. Trouble is this leaves loads of holes that you need to fill with the IKEA plastic mini bungs. Again, not supplied so had to order 1100 of these at £1 per 100 (yes, 1100) extra expense again!!1

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.”

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.
