Canada’s famous interior designer Sarah Richardson also loves and designs IKEA kitchens, so does her trusty right-hand man, Tommy Smythe.

Richardson, has this to say about IKEA cabinets (check out her blog post for more great reno tips):

“This is where my save/splurge approach to design really comes into play. By selecting an in-stock, off the rack cabinet style from those clever Swedes at Ikea (that happened to also be on sale for 50 per cent off the regular price!!!) I was able to install all my cabinets and granite counters, customized to my preferences as much as the building blocks would allow, for a grand total of about$11,000. With over 30 linear feet of counter top (thanks to a raised bar that wraps around from the dining room right through the living room) you can imagine that my save really paid off!”
