I did my own IKEA kitchen at the start of this year. We paid for the consultation, and I would highly recommend it. (Australian IKEA)
Great work Kode! Awesome looking kitchen!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Just bought a house and the cabinet is totally trash😢 need to replace it. Sounds like ikea cabinet is a place to go
I'm grateful for your will to share all your knowledge and tricks. God bless you!

Hi Kody, really wanted to thank you for the excellent video series. I am not a beginner, but have built a few Ikea kitchens. I wish I saw this series a few years back! My latest project in a very small house has turned out to be quite a gorgeous kitchen, and all completed by me. The cabinets are right off the shelf, but on those custom bases, they will last forever. After seeing the granite guys install the counter tops, they would have actually been destroyed by now having been mounted on those plastic legs. Your tips on centering sinks, leveling cabinets, installing uppers, measuring exactly etc, have been a great solution to my kitchen. I learned a lot from you and hope that you continue to post awesome how-to videos in the future. Actually hoping you get around to doing a bathroom series soon. Cheers and thanks again for your help. You have no idea how much this has helped me. Wish I could thank you in person.

Kitchen sinks actually look beautiful when they’re off center beneath a window. The other space under the window allows for sink related items, such as drip racks and brushes, to have a defined space. It also looks great staged with flowers and bottles

IKEA should give you royalties!😁 this has me so excited to move! All the homes I’ve seen need new kitchens badly now I don’t feel so overwhelmed. Definitely subscribed!❤️

I've watched the whole 5 part series, and found it to be an excellent "how to". Thank you for posting! anyone that would give any of the vids in this series a thumbsdown, clearly has no soul.

Great videos! All parts. Too bad you don’t use the Metric system 😊. I live in Sweden.
Jeff Kyriac
Excellent. I love the detail in your work.
Wish there were pantries involved in this kitchen. IMO Pantries can be the most complex piece of the pie.

How close do you live to ikea? Does this matter? My closest ikea Is about an hour and s half away
Thanks for the video. However, I would disagree about not having a filler panel next to your range when you have a hood or microwave above it. The upper cabinet will have end panels adjacent to the hood/MW. To keep the install symettrical and spaced the same from the uppers to the lowers, I'd duplicate the end panels. Otherwise, you may sometimes have a full inch (.5 x 2) of difference at the end of a run of cabinets on the lowers from the uppers.

I'm watching your Ikea videos and noticed your northern accent so I looked you up with fingers crossed that you were in Wisconsin so we could hire you. So close! Great videos!
Do you have a video showing how to install an Ikea centre island?
Randall Smith
This is such a wonderful public service to have this video. I am now feeling very comfortable with Ikea cabinets and installing them. Thank you Kody Horvey!

We are having a problem with the worktops, the guy installing the worktops would like to use his jig to join the worktops but sadly we cannot find a 635 jig, could you please advise? Bye the way we are in the UK.
If you are doing a reno and your walls are not perfectly true vertically, or if there are any waves across the wall, TEAR OFF THE DRYWALL and sister or shim the studs to get everything perfectly aligned. The Ikea system is fantastic, and installs perfectly when the walls are true. Any deviation will cause you enormous angst as the kitchen goes together.

Hey! Loved this video. It would be great if you could also do it in cm for us Ozzies.

I selfishly wish the US was metric, I'm working hard to do these calculations in inches! So used to millimetres for cabinetry.
Randall Smith
Your job built cabinet bases are a terrific idea! I love your approach to the work!
