At the same time, the feedback on the Ikea kitchens confirms that as ready-made products one can be sure: all sizes will match up to a millimeter, and the chosen color will not differ even by a half-ton.

Specificity of Swedish kitchen furniture

Furniture "Ikea" has a number of characteristic features. First of all, from the production of competitors, it is distinguished by a constant long-term fidelity to four design lines:

The most interesting thing is that all these dissimilar friendson the other styles are connected by a single design. After reading a dozen or more reviews of customers about the kitchens "Ikea" and images of sets, it's easy to find they have obvious similarities:

  • almost all kitchen furniture is made of fibreboard MDF sheet, characterized by increased strength and environmental friendliness;
  • on top of MDF plate covers quality veneer;
  • products do not contain frame elements;
  • the sizes of all cuisines are standardized;
  • The fittings of each product are exquisitely strong.

In addition, to each set of furnitureoffers an unlimited range of fasteners for various purposes. Judging by the feedback from buyers, the Ikea kitchen benefits in many respects thanks to the successful fastening and fixing elements - even after a few years after the purchase, the drawers and doors are just as easy to open, close and creak. And this, as you know, is the secret of longevity of any furniture.

Economy of the kitchens "Ikea"

Most of us are demanding, andsometimes even uncompromising, even if we are presented with a wide selection and a rich assortment. However, this is easily explained by the fact that we all want the home to be perfect. And although there is nothing ideal in principle, the consumer nevertheless pays attention to drawbacks and shortcomings in the first place. By the way, there are almost no modular kitchens "Ikea". The feedback of the owners is direct confirmation.

So, what are the nitpicking?It's hard to believe, but some consumers seriously believe that Ikea's branded products are too expensive. Of course, you need to live within your means, so each buyer plans his own budget and expenses himself. However, most users agree in a single opinion - the Swedish brand offers truly budget goods. The kit of Ikea kitchen furniture includes:

  • wireframes;
  • front panels;
  • countertop;
  • accessories;
  • boxes;
  • shelves;
  • cornices;
  • legs;
  • washing;
  • mixers.

On the one hand, there are many components forthe cost of the headset, on the other - the buyer always has the opportunity to make their own strokes, supplement the kitchen environment with suitable accessories, lighting, an interesting dining table and chairs, built-in appliances, doors and other important elements for creating comfort elements. Virtually every branded headset has even stickers on plastic feet and anti-traumatic attachments to the furniture corners for babies.

Variability and practicality of models

But it's much more strange to read unflattering reviews aboutcolors and shapes of products. About the latest catalog there are sometimes the most controversial reviews. The facades of the Ikea kitchens are really made without peacock feathers, gold inlays and Swarovski rhinestones, but for people with more ordinary requests, the assortment is very wide. There is something to choose from: in the line there are both paneled and glass facades. Judging by the reviews, glossy "Ikea" kitchens in pastel and fashionable bright colors are especially often interested buyers over the past years.

Those stylistic solutions that have become the main direction in the work of the Swedish furniture company are the most popular today, which means that all offers from Ikea have a demand.

Another non-argumentative niggle fromdemanding customers: in their opinion, furniture products from Ikea have a distinctive color, it is difficult to maintain and maintain the necessary temperature conditions, the level of humidity. You can parry here only because any natural materials need high-quality care. After all, in addition to the wooden massif, for the production of kitchen facades and frameworks, MDF and chipboard plates are also used, which makes it possible to consider Ikea headsets as an economical solution, an optimal price-to-European ratio.

Among the modular kitchens "Method" this model is notdifferent something unusual. "Sevedal" is a laconic design that combines signs of country, classic and modern. White chipboard facades of furniture of this series are made using plastic materials. In comparison with other compositions of modular kitchens, “Method” from “Ikea”, according to reviews, “Sevedal” headsets are considered the most modern. Perhaps the role here is played by the wider framework of the facades, which make the design geometrically correct.

To the benefits of kitchen "Sevedal" from "Ikea" inreviews users attribute the possibility of adding them to any furniture, as well as the presence of a complete section for a dishwasher - built-in furniture is not able to spoil the look of the kitchen, unlike stand-alone appliances. The doors of the cabinets are made of tempered glass - this is also a definite plus.

However, along with the virtues of white kitchens"Ikea" negative reviews a lot. Light-colored headsets (and “Sevedal” are made only in a snow-white tone) are not as practical as, for example, dark models or products under the tree. But at the same time, with the “Sevedal” kit, you can create a very interesting and unusual kitchen interior, interspersing bright elements and accessories, doors and panels from other Ikea collections.


Headsets in this series are familiarScandinavian palette, glossy surfaces in white and gray.

The headset causes only positive emotions - at least, numerous testimonies testify to this.

Kitchens "Ringult" from "Ikea", when compared withother models of the "Method" series, costing buyers dearly. In this case, a very impressive amount will have to pay for all sorts of "little things": legs, closers, handles, drawers.

The furniture does not lose its gloss even after several yearsof use. Many people praise the kitchen for its appearance, but in order to maintain this beauty, the owners have to rub a glossy surface every day. If this is not done, it quickly becomes dull due to handprints. Therefore, before purchasing glossy furniture, you need to understand that it is one of the most impractical and fastidious in everyday use.

Kitchen layout "Ikea"

Models of this brand are perfectany possible placement of furniture. The set can be placed linearly along one wall or angle, the letter “P” or along walls parallel to each other. In addition to the classic ways of placing kitchen furniture, many create small islands in the form of a furniture module with internal drawers in the middle of the room. It is believed that this option is not suitable for modest footage of the kitchen. In fact, with the proper organization of space, this idea is easy to refute. A striking example of this is the small kitchen (6-8 m²) with a bar counter, which skillfully divides the work area. Thus, the space on the walls is freed and does not clutter up the room, due to which it can appear more than it actually is.

The predominant number of optionsoffered by Ikea consultants, created according to the “working triangle” principle - modular kitchens allow you to successfully position everything you need for cooking as close as possible to the work surface. The smaller the room, the smarter and more economical it is to manage the area - use the vertical (for example, for hooks), the sides of the cabinets, the place above the hood or under the sink.

Reviews and recommendations of the owners

Если брать во внимание отклики тех, кто уже I bought furniture and use the Ikea headset, I can get a lot of useful information for myself. Among the tips that give the owners of kitchen sets, it is worth noting the following:

  • Making measurements of the width and height of the kitchen, do not forget to take into account the space that is allocated for drainpipes, gas and ventilation communications.
  • When planning the interior, mentally pull out all the drawers, wall cabinets, window, door and make sure that there is room for the working area and movement around the room.
  • Having stopped the choice on this or that set,Take an interest in its characteristics. This is of particular importance since some models are not designed for exposure to high temperatures or high humidity. By the way, the furniture of natural wood, moderate humidity will only benefit.

Many buyers are advised to be interested in advancefor an employee (if you don’t collect the kitchen yourself) at the cost of certain services, as prices for furniture makers may vary. If you used to have lockers with round handles, but now you have opted for a set with completely different fittings, better think again, because sometimes it is not easy to change your habits. As they say, comfort in the details.

Also experienced users in reviews recommendfocus on your height when choosing wall cabinets and their depths. To make a measurement, stand on tiptoes, imagine that you want to get something from the top shelf, reach for it with your hand and make a mark at a suitable level.
