If you're willing to take the time to do it yourself, we suggest using Ikea's awesome free planning tool.  Otherwise, you can get assistance from an architect or designer.  We especially recommend IKD and Modular Interiors (below), as they are especially familiar with both kitchen systems.

Please note: These professionals are not employees of Semihandmade. 

On-line design for $249

Your personalized design package will be emailed to you and you’ll be receiving a first design in three business days. The process includes a design draft and two free revisions.  This option includes high-resolution color renderings using professional kitchen design software, detailed drawings with cabinet and wall measurements, and a full item list for your purchase.  They'll even upload a copy of your design to your Ikea Home Planner account for you to use at your local Ikea store.

This package works best if:

  • You prefer to work through e-mails because you’re too busy for a telephone design consultation.
  • You’re budget-conscious and are looking to save as much as possible on your project.
  • You have a clear idea of what you want and need in your kitchen.
  • Your kitchen doesn’t have architectural obstacles that could affect the design.
  • You want a “second pair of eyes” reviewing your design for potential problems.

Comprehensive on-line/phone design, including itemized order, for $500

Your professional designer will be working with you by phone or e-mail throughout the process of your kitchen design.  The process includes an Initial Design Draft and up to 3 free revisions.  Service package will include detailed schematics and renderings of your kitchen design, complete LED integrated lighting plan, preliminary kitchen cost, personalized "In Home Planner" account, and a detailed order number to be used at your local store for ease of purchase.

This package works best if:

  • You're interested in communicating directly with your professional designer throughout the process.
  • You have limited time and need a quick but high-quality design.
  • You're willing to invest in a complete design package that simplifies everything for you.
  • You need a professional to manage all documents and orders that come with a modular kitchen system.
  • You are interested in receiving preliminary pricing for your Semihandmade doors.
