An Ikea Kitchen

I would pretty much say that we have one. An IKEA kitchen, that is. Here she be:

(Excuse the mess- we tried to clean for you, promise)

We LOVE our glossy white cabinets. Especially since they don’t look like this anymore:

Kitchen Before 7

Here are a few different views:

Surprisingly, the quality is fantastic. We also love the drawers. So easy.

Here is a detail shot of the glossy-ness:

However, as great as the cabinets are, the installers that IKEA recommended were awful. Long story, but just don’t trust the installers that IKEA provides.

Here is a mood board for all yo’ kitchen needs:

I have been recently loving tuxedo kitchens (like this or this) which is white cabinets at the top and darker cabinets on the lower ones. Here are the products:

LIDINGÖ Door IKEA You can choose to mount the door on the right or left side.

We have these cabinets and they have this highly coated- glossy finish type thing which is so great for spills because you can practically wipe it up with a plain sponge.

We don’t have gray lower drawers, but I have been loving them lately. Again for that tuxedo effect.

FOTO Pendant lamp IKEA Gives a directed light. Good for lighting dining tables or a bar area.

If you have space for an island (or you have one) pendants are the way to go. These would also go great over a breakfast table of you have one.

TYDA Handle IKEA

These are such modern pulls, but if you don’t like the stainless, I would go with these.

Again, the modern concept and the non-stainless I like is this.

STENSTORP Kitchen island IKEA Free-standing kitchen island; easy to place where you want it in the kitchen.

I LOVE this island! I like the counter and the deep charcoal color.

IKEA PS 1995 Clock IKEA The clock is also a good storage place for small items. Can be hung on the wall or placed on a shelf.(Via)

This uber modern clock is the perfect pop of color in this kitchen.

BEKVÄM Spice rack IKEA Saves space on the countertop Solid wood can be sanded and surface treated as needed.(Via)

I think this spice rack you be so sweet stained a deep brown. To fill it, I would go with these.

BM Van Courtland Blue

Even though this is Benjamin Moore, I think that this is the perfect color for this kitchen. Muted, but not neutral.

I love this for a fruit bowl!

ENSIDIG Vase IKEA

This would be the perfect vase for a kitchen because it looks like a milk jug, right?!

I have always loved the look of garden prints in a kitchen, and this is so simple and sweet.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the bedroom!
