IKEA SEKTION New Kitchen Cabinet Guide: Photos, Prices, Sizes and More!
IKEA’s new kitchen cabinet system hits the stores on February 2nd. To help you plan your dream kitchen, as promised in our earlier inside scoop post, we’ve got need-to-know details ahead of time. Here’s inside info on everything from price to measurements, features to finishes, along with plenty of photos. Let the new kitchen designing and dreaming begin!
The idea behind IKEA’s switch to SEKTION is to simplify the current system, making it easier to for all consumers to get the custom kitchen they’ve envisioned at an off-the-shelf price point. By making the cabinetry boxes part of an evenly sized, easy-to-work-with-each-other modular system, making nearly endless combinations of shapes, sizes and configurations is now much more possible and accessible. The system has been designed to let everyone create the kitchen that works best for their space, without sacrificing function. And, while they were at it, they added some cool new features, improving the system as a whole at the same time.

Drawers and Doors
Finishes and Design Directions
In the SEKTION system, the cabinet boxes will be available in both light (white) and dark (dk brown) options to better match the exteriors and/or make a design statement on their own when used as open cabinetry. Matching cover caps will be available to hide the pre-drilled holes.
Doors and drawer fronts will be available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Due to the modular aspect of the system, an overall modern look can become more modern (think Italian design: a mix of open storage and multiple cabinets or drawers hidden behind expansive solid fronts) and traditional lovers can go more traditional (think vintage cottage: multiple smaller drawers and hutch-style configurations of upper and lower cabinets that appear more like furniture than built-ins). Accessories and handles to complement the different design directions will be available.
Some of finishes and designs featured throughout this post are: LAXARBY (black-brown) doors, HAGGEBY (white) doors, FORHOJA open wall cabinets, BODBYN (gray w/glass) doors, BODBYN (off white) doors, BROKHULT (light gray with walnut effect) doors, GREVSTA (stainless steel) drawer fronts, TINGSRYD (black wood effect) doors, BJORKET (birch) doors, HORDA open wall cabinets.
