Don’t be fooled by IKEA’s 10×10 price

ikea kitchen cost estimate ballpark price

You’ve probably seen IKEA’s 10×10 kitchen price in their catalogs and on their website. Here’s a beautiful kitchen, and it will only cost this much!

Don’t trust that 10×10 kitchen price from IKEA for even a minute. Here’s why.

The 10×10 price means the price for a kitchen that is 10 feet by 10 feet. It’s something of an industry standard to talk about that kitchen footprint when discussing cost.

The problem is that there is no such thing as a standard kitchen. Every kitchen is unique. So the 10×10 price is actually irrelevant!

If you want to get a quick and approximate idea of what your IKEA kitchen cabinets will cost, then you will need real-life linear foot pricing to calculate an estimate.

How can you find out the real linear foot pricing for your IKEA kitchen?

How can you be sure SemBro Designs really knows how much an IKEA really costs?

Because unlike IKEA’s 10×10 price, our estimates are based on real-world examples. We selected a random sample from the IKEA kitchen designs we created for our customers, and ran the numbers.

Whether you’re looking at creating an IKEA kitchen with BODBYN, GRIMSLÖV, RINGHULT doors or others, our Professional Designers can help you get a quick and good estimate of what it will cost you.

Oak Kitchen Cabinets

marvellous-rustic-kitchen-design-with-light-brown-colored-oak-wooden-reclaimed-wood-oak-kitchen-cabinets-and-silver-refrigerator

Learn all about oak kitchen cabinets and discover why this type of wood has stayed so popular in kitchen designs everywhere.

Oak kitchen cabinets are popular in traditional kitchen designs. Oak is a very hard, heavy wood that’s strong and durable. It also features a coarse and highly visible grain pattern, which makes it a popular choice.

If you’re considering oak kitchen cabinets in your kitchen redesign, you might want to consider that oak comes in a wide range of colors. Oak is often known for its distinctive pale gold color, but it can also be seen in brown with rich red highlights. The pronounced grain pattern of natural oak wood is often brought to light when stained, so oak may be a particularly good choice if custom cabinets are what you seek.

You can actually choose from more than one subspecies of oak. Red oak is strong, durable and relatively inexpensive. It is often featured in traditional cabinet styles as it shows off the pronounced grain patterns that oak is known for. It is available in a wide range of styles and finishes and is widely available in stock cabinetry as well as through custom retailers.

White oak is as durable as red oak and even a bit stronger. It has more of a golden tone than red oak and a more subtle grain pattern. White oak is generally quarter-sawn for custom cabinetry—a process that creates a distinctive grain pattern with a characteristic fleck. Quarter-sawn white oak is often seen in Arts and Crafts furniture design, although it is also popular in contemporary design because of its consistent grain pattern.

For the budget-conscious kitchen designer, oak is lower in price than maple, cherry or birch. This lower price allows you to buy very sturdy yet inexpensive kitchen cabinets in many different styles and colors. Oak is widely available in stock kitchen cabinetry, which allows for much less expensive kitchen renovation. It is also available from custom cabinet retailers, allowing you to design your oak kitchen with more creative freedom.

Cherry Kitchen Cabinets

Get the information you need on cherry kitchen cabinets, a popular and beautiful wood choice for your kitchen design.

When planning a kitchen installation or renovation, you’ll need to decide on your kitchen cabinet materials. Wood is a common material in kitchen cabinetry today, and cherry kitchen cabinets are among the most popular options.

Cherry kitchen cabinets are a favorite because of their warm tones and rich look. Cherry tends to have predominantly red undertones; however, it can range in color from pale yellow to deep brown. The texture of cherry wood is smooth and satiny, which allows it to accept stain beautifully. Another reason for its popularity is that it matures over time and changes in color. Cherry wood becomes warmer and richer as it’s exposed to the air—a feature many homeowners seek out when choosing wood cabinets for their kitchen.

Cherry wood also shows a beautiful fine grain that gives cabinets character and unique personality. The pattern of the grain tends to be circular; once it’s stained, cherry shows an even-toned finish. It is moderately heavy and strong, which makes it durable and able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday cabinet use.

Cherry cabinets, while not as expensive as other premium woods such as mahogany, are more costly than certain lighter woods or cabinets made from particleboard. If you want the look of cherry cabinets but can’t fit them into your budget, you may want to consider maple or another of the darker woods. Another option is to purchase cabinets made out of one of the less expensive wood materials and have them stained a cherry color. The actual cost of cherry kitchen cabinets will depend on the number of cabinets needed in your design and whether you are able to buy stock cabinets or if you need to have them custom built to fit into your design space.

Kitchen Stories Inspired by International Women’s Day

international-womans-day-women-empowered

March 8th is celebrated as the International Women’s Day, and both women and men around the world are joining together to celebrate economic, political and social achievements of women, as well as to draw attention to the continuing fight for women’s causes. In honor of this day we have gathered a few kitchen stories to give you some inspiration for the women in your life.

International Women’s Day also recognizes the incredible progress and accomplishments of females around the world. CNN called attention to an amazing 15-year-old Pakistani girl named Malala Yousafzai, who became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize nominee in history, by risking her life for the cause of girls’ education. The Huffington Post highlighted some of the many women who have helped bring computer science education into the next generation, in a world where only three percent of tech startups are led by women. There is certainly no shortage of ground-breaking ladies to celebrate and honor this day. So here it goes…

The Woman Who Invented the Kitchen. (She couldn’t cook and had 12 kids)

The idea that housework is work now seems like a commonplace. We contract it out to housekeepers, laundromats, cleaning services, takeout places. We divvy it up: You cooked dinner, I’ll do the dishes. We count it as a second shift, as well as primary employment. But it wasn’t until the early part of the 20th century that first a literature, and then a science, developed about the best way to cook and clean. The results of this research shape the way we treat housework today, and created a template for the kitchen that remains conceptually unchanged from the 1920s. And the woman who made the kitchen better? She couldn’t cook…

Why Kitchens aren’t designed for Real Women

Before women were all hunched over screens, applying filters and tapping out hashtags to food photos, we were hunched over sinks, sudsing dishes and keeping an eye on the stove. Today’s kitchens may have more machines, but they remain abuzz with structured and artificial femininity, from aprons to pink KitchenAids. Everything matches, even the woman, whose body the kitchen has been designed to fit—albeit inaccurately—since almost a century ago, when engineers measured thousands of women to try to make housework more comfortable…

Women who inspired me to get in the kitchen

Today is a day to honor women and all they do. It’s a day to inspire girls to realize they can do anything. As a girl, cooking wasn’t my thing. If you had told me that one day I’d love being in my kitchen cooking meals every night, that chopping vegetables would be one of my favorite activities, that I’d be someone who writes about food, I wouldn’t have believed you.
But International Women’s Day is a day to believe that anything is possible, and when I look at how my life and career have turned out, I do believe it. Along the way from being that girl who was not interested in being in the kitchen to this woman who happily spends the majority of the day in the kitchen and thinking about food, there have been some women who have been inspirational. I thought I’d honor a few of them today…

10 Cool Kitchen Features for Your Home Remodel

Cool kitchen features for your home remodel

Thinking of remodeling your kitchen this year? Kitchens are the top spot for renovations, and are often both the most expensive and the most likely to bring a great return on investment. The kitchen is also the space that has the most potential for changing the way you live, simply because of how much time is spent there.

If you’re redoing your kitchen, bathroom or home in general, you don’t just want to make it pretty. You also want it to function well. And why not add some cool stuff to it while you’re at it.

Here are 10 of the coolest kitchen features you’ll want to consider for your fabulous next remodel.

1. A Hi-Tech refrigerator

Who needs a regular old fridge when you can have the ChillHub, with USB ports, built-in wi-fi connectivity and an iOS app?

That’s exactly what the smart refrigerator built by General Electric’s First Build has created. The refrigerator “was built with accessories in mind, specifically accessories that can be 3-D printed.”

2. Light-up countertops

Yes, quartz countertops continue to be a growing trend. But if you want something unique, different, and special, you might want to consider onyx.

“Who needs wall art when you have 1,900 pounds of onyx countertops illuminated from within by 1,600 LED lights?”

3. For the love of pizza

Forget the pizza oven. You need an entire pizza room. As in example of HGTV’s 10 amazing kitchens, “this cozy pizza room, located just off the kitchen, comes complete with limestone floors, mosaic tiles on the ceiling and maple cupboards with plenty of storage for essential pizza-making equipment.”

4. A fireplace

Nothing makes a house homier than adding a crackling fireplace, and when you have one in your kitchen, you up the warmth and the charm. If you have the space, this is one addition you won’t regret.

5. Take advantage of the corners

Figuring out how to maximize space is the age-old dilemma, no matter what size kitchen you are working with. Right angles make that more difficult. Lazy Susan corner cabinets are one solution. Or, you can go with these ingenious corner drawers.

6. The baking drawer

Take this opportunity to customize your cabinetry to meet your needs. A large storage drawer under your wall oven offers a great opportunity to house all of your baking supplies in one convenient space.

7. A place for every spice

While you’re at it, plan for a pullout spice cabinet. Well hidden and ingenious idea right inside the cabinets. Placed right next to your stove, it gives you easy access to all your spices just where you need them.

8. The divided trash pullout drawer

It seems like such a simple thing, but it’s one that will streamline the way you work in your kitchen. As you’re designing your cabinetry, make sure to include a pullout trash drawer separated into sections for regular trash and recyclables. It might just become your favorite new feature.

Make life easier by planning a handy trash and recycling area. This is one feature you will use every day, so convenience is paramount.

9. The holy grail of wine storage

Have a basement (or an area you can dig out to create one)? Then you, too, can have one of the coolest features around in any part of the house—a spiral wine cellar, with a trapdoor under the floor, leading to a secret spiral wine cellar.

10. Get connected

When you’re thinking about new appliances, take into account not just how they cook, but how you can use them to make life easier. The LG app interacts with many of its LG Smart Ranges and Profile wall ovens, enabling you to remote turn-on, preheat while you’re driving home, (make) temperature changes and check meat probe settings.
