    Fantastic video! Thanks for all the detailed info. You have a lovely kitchen.

  2. Candace McGuire on April 21, 2023 at 8:41 am

    It looks great. I wish IKEA offered a solid wood base cabinet.

  3. Sue Lyons on April 21, 2023 at 8:41 am

    Very nice. You were way ahead of the trend of dark on bottom and light on top.

  4. scrapper666 on April 21, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Particle board is not MDF. The cabinets carcasses are made of particle board.

    How was the ordering process? We’ve seen reviews of people waiting a long time to get all their order in.

  6. Raymond Rigdon on April 21, 2023 at 8:43 am

    Where did you get the marble pannel for the xl backslash?

  7. angetodac on April 21, 2023 at 8:43 am

    In america a kitchen from home depot can cost min 35k, between 35 and 50-60k.

  8. Sheri Moore on April 21, 2023 at 8:44 am

    We are thinking of redoing our kitchen and IKEA seems the way to go. I am not a skilled carpenter at all and my husband works looong hours. Every review I have seen or heard is similar. Products are great, but IKEA install is seriously lacking and customer service stinks. That makes me nervous. However, everyone raves about the cabinets and their function.
    Thanks for the video. It keeps me optimistic on this project.

  9. Rps96 on April 21, 2023 at 8:44 am

    Awesome video, thanks 🙂

  10. Jenniffer Hurlburt on April 21, 2023 at 8:45 am

    Looks beautiful! I’m extremely impressed with the fact these are still looking amazing after 7 years! I’m starting to plan my kitchen remodel and now I really wish we weren’t in another lockdown! I would absolutely love to go see all of the options! Thank you for a fantastic video!

  11. jelbelle G on April 21, 2023 at 8:45 am

    Are your backsplash marble and is that separate from Ikea?

  12. Raziels Fire on April 21, 2023 at 8:47 am

    Great video 🙂 How do you like the corner cupboard that comes all the way down to the countertop? Do you recommend? I have. Similar layout and want to make the most of storage space

  13. knocturna on April 21, 2023 at 8:52 am

    The two tone cabinet look aged really well!

  14. Emily Max on April 21, 2023 at 8:53 am

    What do you recommend for cleaning the sink

  15. Nafeesah Chaudhry on April 21, 2023 at 8:54 am

    What is the quality like?

  16. NJ on April 21, 2023 at 8:54 am

    I think the quality has really gone downhill, I bought a method high cabinet as a trial and the unit looks good outside, but it is cheap chipboard, the pins to hold the shelves are tiny, they won’t hold anything you normally have in a pantry or kitchen, the backing board is truly awful, mine broke the moment I tried to install it lovely design outside but no longer functional.

  17. Trang Le on April 21, 2023 at 8:56 am

    How did you buy the vanity for the bathroom that has the single sink on one side? Maybe they don’t sell it at Ikea anymore 🙁 I really want it because I’m having a baby soon

  18. sol azul on April 21, 2023 at 8:59 am

    Did you all get or DIY deco strips under wall cabs after this video?

  19. Millie H. - NYC on April 21, 2023 at 8:59 am

    This was so helpful. Thank you for your candid review of your kitchen. Very extensive. Be well.

  20. Trish Diggins on April 21, 2023 at 9:00 am

    I’m really really wanting to try to do my kitchen over. But I’m considering of doing it one section at a time so it’s not overwhelming. This video is great encouragement. Thanks!

  21. Gyamstar on April 21, 2023 at 9:01 am

    Do you mind sharing the height of the wall cabinets. Did you stack 2 different sizes on top of each other? Trying to figure out what kind of cabinets you used

  22. yy.yy00 on April 21, 2023 at 9:02 am

    Hi. I’m considering to have a wood worktop around my sink area. Do you have any tips to make it last longer?

  23. Sun Flower on April 21, 2023 at 9:04 am

    Just seen this and love it. Looks brand new ❤️

  24. cdb broadfield on April 21, 2023 at 9:04 am

    I’m sold Great video for a 7 year old kitchen it looks very stylish. Will be buying an ikea kitchen when I renovate.

  25. Yadi Carlos on April 21, 2023 at 9:08 am

    What sink is this? I don’t see it linked.

  26. LadyPolly on April 21, 2023 at 9:08 am

    How those cabinets work in your bathroom since it’s always damp and steamy there? I would really like your review on that please

  27. Amanda Hannawa on April 21, 2023 at 9:09 am

    Hello, did u use the kitchen cabinets as a bathroom vanity?

  28. Susan Severson on April 21, 2023 at 9:10 am

    Your kitchen is beautiful! I love the cabinets! I am thinking of buying the bodbyn cabinets for my kitchen. How are the bodbyn cabinets holding up for durability? Does the off-white color have a yellow hue, or is it a true off-white? Have you noticed any yellowing with age? Thank you.

  29. Khai Quach on April 21, 2023 at 9:10 am

    Hello, I’m remodeling my bathroom but couldn’t find any I like. May I ask how do you use Ikea kitchen cabinet for your bathroom? Any advices?

  30. Marina Navea on April 21, 2023 at 9:12 am

    Beautiful! Thank you so much

  31. Nicole Dorr on April 21, 2023 at 9:14 am

    Hi. I am building out cabinetry in my garage. Want to use Section (Ikea’s new kitchen cabinet line). What are your thoughts on how they will perform with heat/moisture of garage (in Florida)?

  32. Laura Wilkinson on April 21, 2023 at 9:15 am

    How’s your sink holding up?

  33. Angus Might on April 21, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Kitchen looks great! What are the counter top dimensions on your kitchen island? I’m thinking about building one.

  34. Michelle Orange on April 21, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Can you get custom counters from other stores and will they work with ikea kitchens?

  35. R h on April 21, 2023 at 9:19 am


  36. Hajjar wibisono on April 21, 2023 at 9:21 am

  37. Steve Hayden on April 21, 2023 at 9:22 am

    Thanks! Nice to see a Canadian perspective!

  38. Janet Christian on April 21, 2023 at 9:25 am

    Did you get the Carrara Gregio? Your kitchen is really nice. Love the two toned cabinets and love love love the backsplash.

  39. Crimsin_Fury on April 21, 2023 at 9:25 am

    I was just looking at their kitchen cabinets two nights ago! Thank you for this video!

  40. Stevey Irwin on April 21, 2023 at 9:26 am

    I like ikea kitchens, I just wish the white frames didn’t show through.

  41. Romo Romo on April 21, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Love your kitchen! What material is your backsplash?

  42. Raquel Long on April 21, 2023 at 9:27 am

    Thank you for the review – we’re about to install an IKEA kitchen and can’t wait! I love that your review was after seven years and you still loved it 🤗! Question: how did you design your bathrooms with ikea?

  43. Soraya Norman on April 21, 2023 at 9:27 am

    What about the countertop water resistance – especially around the sink?

  44. Yasmine Elsamadony on April 21, 2023 at 9:28 am

    I am considering an Ikea kitchen and your review helped me a lot. Thanks!
    Can I ask about your floor? What kind is it and the color?

  45. Jeremy Voicework on April 21, 2023 at 9:30 am

    Hi great video! Which series did you get? We are deciding between METOD and Knoxhult.

  46. Alfreda Miller-Walker on April 21, 2023 at 9:30 am

    So glad i saw this video. Been researching stuff for awhile now. Was debating on painting my old cabinets and getting my kitchen done in about 3 years. Now, i might get it done within the year at Ikea.

  47. Nikki Butler on April 21, 2023 at 9:32 am

    Hi – I am hearing others complain that after a few years their white cabinets have slightly turned yellow or a dingy white/yellow color. Some have complained about warping over time. Have you experienced any discoloration or warping?

  48. Pat Mueller on April 21, 2023 at 9:33 am

    Thanks for the great info on IKEA kitchen. I wish you had a ‘pro – con’ list.

  49. Becky klassen on April 21, 2023 at 9:36 am

    Now can I please hire you to design and order mine? We are also in Canada.

  50. Lynn Nguyen on April 21, 2023 at 9:36 am

    I love my IKEA kitchen, which was installed in 2012. They are all white, which many have turned yellow. Can anyone tell me why and if IKEA would correct this?
