A kitchen in the living room?


Materials: METOD kitchen cabinets

I needed a place to store all the toys of my kids. It needed to be exactly 1m wide, and couldn’t find anything within a reasonable budget and tasteful. Then Ikea launched their new Kitchen line: Metod. I’ve grabbed different parts of different kitchens to make the attached. I’m very happy with the result.

    Was this fixated to the wall?

    I made this with the metod cabinets that are 40 cm deep and 40 and 60 cm width, and stacked it together. I started on the bottom right side with a cabinet of 40cm widht and 100 cm height. On the bottom left I started with the a cabinet of 60 cm width and 100cm height. On the second level I put a cabinet of 40cm width and 40 height on the left side and the 60 cm width and 40 cm height cabinet on the right. The third row of cabinets is again the 60 cm width cabinet on the left and the open colored metod cabinet of 40 cm width and 40 cm height on the right side. The top row of cabinets is the same as the second row. The open colored cabinets exists in different colors. I choose the grey one, but there are also a yellow, blue and red one. For the doors i choose the Veddinge doors.

    Sabine, Could you explain which bits of Metod you used? I’ve looked at the IKEA website, and can’t easily see how you made your beautiful unit. Regards, Peter T
