Before and After: IKEA Kitchen upgrade

13-before after IKEA kitchen upgrade

We just rented a new apartment and didn’t like the way the kitchen was. (2 photos below)

1 Kitchen before - general look 2 Kitchen before the nishe

The kitchen colors are gray and white so we decided to make our edition following the same line of colors.

I used Ikea’s HALLESTAD 246×3.8 (white & gray with aluminium ) and cut it in to several parts:

The stove plate

3 mobile Stove 4 Mobile Stove & Dishwasher

A counter with Ikea GERTON leg

5 Adding the counter

A decorative divider (using the gray side) between the dishwasher and the kitchen original cupboard.

6-Closing-the-gap

Stove frame cut so the aluminum is visible from above and the white outer frame matching the stove plate

7 Cutting frame for build in stove 8 Front-upper view

Lower shelf

11 Lower shelf

To prevent water from entering; all the exposed cuts were coated with silicon.

An Ikea RIBBA 115 was cut in length to match the OSTHAMRA 80×23 ; the expose cut was painted with correction fluid.

9 Cutting shelf to cupboard length

Ikea MALM GLASS 80×48 hung on the wall to be used as an easy to clean surface from any food “mess”.

10 Adding glass & stove

Ikea VURM was added under the counter.
