Frequently Asked Questions
We don’t match or copy any of the IKEA doors styles (new or old). We provide our own product offerings of doors/drawer fronts to fit onto the IKEA cabinets. Some of our door styles may be similar in design, however we do not suggest mixing them with current IKEA product as it may result in an undesirable match. We recommend replacing all the fronts with a new style or colour so you have a consistent look throughout. Alternatively you could change out a few fronts in specific areas to create an accent or feature contrast using a different a colour or design
In addition to door/drawer fronts, can you manufacture matching panels?We have a great Retro-fit system that allows us to provide custom styles/colour/materials for all necessary components to fit seamlessly onto the IKEA cabinets. We will custom manufacture all the doors, drawer fronts, fillers, toe kick, light valance, cover panels etc.. to the specifications necessary for your project.

Can you match IKEA doors for an addition or replacement that IKEA no longer offers?
No we cannot. If your IKEA door style is currently in production go to IKEA. If your style is discontinued then we recommend considering changing out a section of the kitchen with a complimentary style. Fortunately two-colour kitchens and kitchens with two styles or door are in trend and the trend is growing.
Can you match IKEA colours?
No we cannot. There are too many variables to ensure an exact match of IKEA’s colours. We suggest using a complimentary colour for additions.
Do you have installers that can come and take measurements?
We do not provide measuring nor installation services. We can however make recommendation of local companies that do provide those services in certain areas. It depends on where you are located.
Do you paint on-site or do you simply ship the selected style?
We do not offer on site painting. We supply painted doors, ready to be installed onto IKEA’s cabinet boxes.
Do we have to have the IKEA kitchen planning file to get a quote or place an order?
The Ikea planner is the ideal tool for us to understand and quote. However, we can sometimes work from sketches, or other types of architectural drawings. If you have something that you think may work then please email it to us. We will take a look and let you know if it is clear enough to produce a quote.
Do you ship outside of Ontario?
We ship across Canada (and the US) several times a week. Your doors will be wrapped in foam and further protected in a sturdy crate constructed from plywood with a skid base. Crates are shipped by contracted carriers and can be delivered to your residence. The driver can place the crate outside on your driveway using a lift gate. You simply remove the top from the crate and bring the foam wrapped doors inside. The crate material is yours to keep (re-purpose) or dispose.
I want my upper doors to be white and the lowers to be a grey/dark blue color. Can you do that?
Yes we can paint two different colours on a project..

We do not offer kitchen design services. We manufacture retro-fit door and drawers for IKEA’s Sektion cabinets. Most of our customers use IKEA’s 3D Kitchen Planner either in store or online. Alternatively you can use an online IKEA design service such as Inspired Kitchen Design.
