Rachael, a licensed builder located in Brisbane, sent in her IKEA kitchen project where she (and her team) personalised/ customised/ hacked some parts of it to give it the extra va va voom.
She demonstrates a few creative ways of using and customising IKEA products to create her client’s dream kitchen. Let’s take a look at Rachael’s IKEA kitchen hacks.
#1 Overhead cabinet with moulding
The space had very high ceilings and they wanted to make use of the full height with a row of overhead uppers. But the two wall cabinets flanking the window would end up being a little too high if they were to line up with the overhead cabinet.
Rachael had the idea of adding decorative timber trim between the top rows of cabinets to slightly lower the second tier of wall cabinets to just the right height, without breaking the flow.
