I went to IKEA Friday night. I took pictures of 3 inspiring pictures. The cheapest price of an IKEA kitchen means that you can indulge in a remarkable ceramic wall and countertop surface.
This is the perfect island if you like to entertain. I wish I got the space for it.
The best of the crop goes to this long kitchen. If you have the space, the expandable BJURSTA dining table, which opens up to 260 cm (102 inches) costs only $299 CAD. This leaves you more room on your budget to buy the chairs.
If you are looking for island, models like this red and white costs between $450 to $600 CAD at IKEA. Although I am not too keen on shiny kitchen cabinets I enjoy the overall kitchen layout. AKURUM is IKEA kitchen cabinet series. I especially like the pattern wall. Put an acrylic clear panel in front of the wallpaper for easy cleaning.

The glossy cabinets get scratched way too easily. Only get these if you don’t have kids… But they do look cool, especialy the white ones.
Btw how did you managed to get pictures at the IKEA with anyone in the frame? Every time I go there it is super crowded!

Alain: The finger marks on glossy are what I do not like about them. I enjoy the overall look and details.
For the photo, I was surprised too. I guess waiting to take the pictures 15 minutes before they close on Friday night helps.

funny you should post pictures of IKEA kitchens, I just got mine installed yesterday. It’s so lovely – and I got that GIMAN island in glossy while – love it – I don’t think the scratches will show as much one white as on bright colours. But time will tell – so far – I love that new kitchen of mine – in birch Nexus.

Quynh: I am glad to hear from you. I also think that the glossy white should be more forgiving. Plus that marks on the side of an island are less visible than on the top cabinet doors.
