My IKEA Sektion Kitchen!!! Jillian Harris03.2015Decor, Entertaining, Jill’s House, Kitchens43 Comments When designing my kitchen the first thing that I think about is functionality. I want my kitchen to be family friendly, party friendly and obviously cooking friendly!!! SO I am going to take you on a tour of my new Ikea Sektion Kitchen!!! This kitchen has my name written all over it from every little detail…the colour of the cabinets, the hard wear and definitely the countertops!!! It’s romantic, flirty, feminine, classic, but it still can host a FUN party…which of course I love!! I decided to put some of my cabinets directly on the countertop like you would have seen hundreds of years ago in an old European home…I love this idea mainly because it allows you to go up higher and there is no wasted space for storage!!! These cabinets make a perfect appliance garage or easy access for every day items. It lowers your shelving making everything eye level and easy to reach for everyone!!! Underneath I chose to do two single shallow drawers instead of one giant drawer so that everything is more organized and easier to find. One thing in my kitchen that is not going anywhere is my lazy susan…which I call the lazy Jillian!!! It makes everything so much easier to put everything away and take out. One of my favourite features in my kitchen is the Ikea farmhouse sink. I use these as much as possible in all of my projects. They are homey and give the feeling of memories and a nod to the past. This feature instantly transform my kitchen into a happy space from morning to night. It can easily be prepared for any party, that’s why my kitchen has a specific party closet!!!! Just wait until you see my wine storage…..what’s good food without good wine!?!? One of the main features that I LOVE about my Ikea Sektion kitchen is the drawers inside drawers. I used to find ways to section of my cupboards and drawers by using tupperwear containers or other storage containers to create sections for storing things. NOW the Ikea Sektion Kitchen comes with the sections built right in, they are removable and adjustable so you can change them around as much as you want!!! This makes it easy to store your dishes in drawers so that no reaching or looking is necessary! I’ve even included a pull out rawer under the sink for my garbage and recycling so that it’s easier to access everything at the back. I am a HUGE believer in doing ALL drawers NOT doors in your kitchen. This makes organization so simple and easy to access every item in the cupboard simply by pulling it out. Well…what do you think!?!?! Do you want to come over and join me for a party in my Ikea Sektion Kitchen!?!?! xo Jilly Share this post with your friends!

1. Ikea’s VERY buggy design software. I estimate I wasted at least 50 hours dealing with buggy software issues. This is a major deterrent to buying their product, and Ikea really should get these issues fixed. 2. Ikea store layout is very bad – you are forced to walk a mile to get to the cash registers. This is very frustrating to be forced to walk past every item in the store when all you want is one specific item. 3. Ikea needs to improve the pictorials for the hinge adjustments. There are in fact three screws that control the adjustment and the pictorials don’t clearly show you each screw. 4.. There is a great variability in product knowledge by Ikea employees. Sometimes you have to ignore information given by one employee and ask another employee the same question. In one case, I got dead wrong information from the Ikea help line and would have cut the side panels the wrong width, except for the fact that I went in the store, just to make sure, and asked a kitchen expert there, who took me over to several store displays where it became clear what the true answers were. The store displays were very helpful in clearing up a number of issues where one Ikea employee contradicted another. 5. The Utrusta undercounter lighting has electrical outlet modules that DO NOT meet code in most areas of the US for kitchens, where GFCI’s are required. Most Ikea store employees have no idea about this and nothing in the Ikea literature I could find talked about this. 6. The HUGE sized connectors and cable diameter on the Utrusta lighting extension cables make hiding the cables difficult and limit the size of the lighting units that will fit under the cabinets. Allow three inches for the connector/cable at the ends. In my case I had a 30″ kitchen sink that needed a light above but could only fit a 24″ light unit because of the bulky cables. 7. Use cabinet clamps to tightly hold the side panels to the cabinet before inserting the holding screws. Ikea’s bad choice of screws here with threads all the way down the screw shank tend to push the panels appart and make it hard to get a tight fit of the side panel to the cabinet. For side panel screws, first use an awl, then a drill to drill through the cabinet side, then the impact driver to set the screw.
