DIY Solutions

At IKAN, we understand that kitchen renovation can be both exciting and daunting. That’s why our DIY Solutions are designed to streamline the process and empower you, the DIY enthusiast, to create your dream kitchen while staying within your budget. Our DIY solution is ideal for clients with spaces that fit IKEA components as they are sold. We recognize that certain configurations, like angled walls or non-standard ceiling heights, may require a different approach.

We offer alternative options to ensure your success if it feels too daunting.

What Our Clients Say

See why our clients trust IKAN with their kitchen projects – their words say it all.

"This is my third project with IKAN. I cannot recommend them enough! The whole team is amazing to work with. Amy, Kyler, Eric. They have an amazing origin story and that follows through on the whole process! The first kitchen we did was in 2014 and it still looks brand new! We added the laundry room in 2016 and now our suite kitchen! Thank you so much! I couldn’t love it anymore! And I will add this whole renovation was a five week turn around, the kitchen process was the smoothest easiest part with the best results!! Thank you again IKAN team!I will forever be a customer (but I hope not too soon I’m tired 🤣)."

"We had a great experience with IKAN. Olivia, the designer, came and helped us arrange and organize the layout of our new kitchen. Ken the carpenter, installed the cabinets with the utmost perfection! Everything was done professionally and on schedule. We have recommended IKAN to anyone that we speak to!! Thank you IKAN for making this a relaxing and special experience."

"Me and my husband used IKAN to build our dream kitchen and we had a really great experience with them. Each encounter we had with them, whether it was in their showroom, via phone or email or in person in our home was very positive. Olivia was our designer and she was lovely to work with. She had great ideas for the layout and what the finishes could be. She always responded to our emails in a timely manner. The work itself was done quickly and efficiently in only a few days (we had demo’d the kitchen ourselves). Each day the builders left they left it in as clean of a state as they could considering the amount of work being done. Once it was finished Olivia came to make sure everything was good and that we were happy. We love our kitchen and always get compliments when people come over. Thanks IKAN! We would highly recommend IKAN to anyone!"

"We are working with IKAN for our kitchen reno and it has been such a positive experience. Rebecca is our designer and she is truly amazing! She has gone above and beyond answering all of our questions and walking us through the process. I have found the level of professionalism and customer service at IKAN outstanding! The members of the team that we have dealt with have been so pleasant and accommodating (Rebecca, Kyler, Gail) They treat you like you are the one and only. I would highly recommend IKAN."

"We live in Ontario and were referred to IKAN from a friend and we are very happy with the service! Christine was friendly and helpful, she designed our kitchen remotely with the dimensions and photos we sent her. She has lots of great tips for optimizing storage and all you have to do is press “order” on the ikea website from the list she makes. We are very glad we had IKAN design the kitchen and it took the stress out of designing and ordering. Kitchen Renos are stressful enough!"

"Wonderful service! We contracted IKAN to design and build an Ikea kitchen for our suite and they did a wonderful job. The quality of the cabinets, hinges and slow close hardware were all surprisingly very good. The IKAN folks were friendly, had a good attention to detail, were timely and friendly."
