IKEA 'Hacks'


Please note: these methods are all complete customization and Semihandmade cannot assist in measurements or provide installation advice. These are resources that we've collected from our clients along the way:

IKEA Hardware to Connect Multiple Fronts:

I want to change my door into a drawer, can I do that?

IKEA has special hardware just for this purpose.

Do white Sektion cabinets show through dark-colored doors?

About 90% of our customers, regardless of their door color, go with the standard white cabinet box. That color is also standard in the European cabinetry industry. So, while it’s true, you may see the white cabinet box shows between the doors and drawers. The reveal between fronts is about 1/8". We can tell you that every amazing photo we have on Instagram and the website has the same thing and they look amazing.

Some Semihandmade customers will take the extra step of painting their white IKEA box to match their Semihandmade fronts. However, there is a risk to your IKEA warranty with this approach, the majority of Semihandmade clients leave the reveal as-is. But if you are interested in painting the box, I have linked a blog post by Kismet House that explains how HERE.​​​​​​​
