For starters, our DIY SLAB and DIY SHAKER doors, two of our most popular offerings, fall right into the mid-range of Ikea pricing. It is important to note, however, that professional fees for painting or spraying these doors - whether with paint, varnish, or lacquer - can certainly add up. Of course, nothing beats getting the exact color you want, we simply suggest doing some research beforehand to determine what the real cost will be.
We are thrilled (and so are our customers!) to offer ten materials in our IMPRESSION collection (category B1) that are priced comparably with Ikea's Brokhult, Ringhult, and Voxtorp (US prices) collections. Click HERE for a pricing comparison sheet. In most cases our door and drawer prices fall somewhere between Brokhult and Ringhult, while our panels are very close to Voxtorp.

Our SUPERMATTE SLAB and SUPERMATTE SHAKER collections (categories B2 and B3) are also priced comparably with Ikea's Voxtorp, though panel pricing is slightly higher. Why are the panels priced higher? In most cases, our panels are thicker and wider than Ikea's panels and we oversize our panels so they can be scribed to the wall and/or the floor for a more professional look. Additionally, our panels and trim are made of the exact same material as our doors and drawer faces.
We strongly suggest all three B categories for people hoping to match or go slightly above Ikea's price-point.
Door in the C-G categories are meant for people sold on the Ikea system but willing to spend more. ECO and COLOR doors (categories C and D) start at about 40-60% more than Ikea's more expensive lines, and sequenced CLASSIC doors (categories E, F, and G) start around twice the price of Ikea's offerings.
Roughly, a typical kitchen remodel using the Ikea system will have fixed costs (cabinets, hardware, assembly, and installation) ranging from $3,000 - $6,000. A typical Semihandmade order for an average kitchen - including doors, drawer faces, panels, and custom elements like floating shelves or bookcases - ranges from $4,000 - $10,000, putting the total cost range between $7,000 - $16,000. Appliances, counter tops, and any other expenditures are not factored into this equation.
