Last Tuesday IKEA launched it’s new kitchen line SEKTION, replacing the well-loved AKURUM system. As someone who is potentially in the kitchen cabinet market in the near future, I was extremely excited to see the new reveal!
My mom and I went to the Schaumburg location to check out the changes in person. IKEA kept many features of the new kitchen line the same as their former one, but made several crucial tweaks.
Let’s go through some of the most exciting changes. First, the new SEKTION kitchen is very modular and allows more size combination options. This means, less IKEA hacks, and more options for customized dimensions.
Not only will the drawers and cabinets dimensions be customizable, their insides will as well. Meaning more options for drawers inside of drawers. Yes, you heard that right! They have also expanded their in-cabinet storage features for optimal space usage.
On the door front (pun intended), most faces remain the same with new names, but several more are added. I would have liked to seen a few more options in the ‘classic-traditional’ style, but I guess they already have some pretty great picks.
Price-wise, you’ll be happy to know that most lines are remaining the same as AKURUM with only several increasing. So, I’m hearing more customization, for little-to-no more money! 🙂
Overall, I’m impressed with the options offered by IKEA’s new SEKTION kitchen system. I would have liked to see a few more ‘classic traditional’ door options added, but I can’t complain, they still have some great ones available.
Are you planning a kitchen remodel in the near future? What do you think of the SEKTION cabinet line? My favorite door at the moment is the GRIMSLOV (formerly ADEL).
