You don’t know how much you’ll miss IKEA replacement doors until they’re gone, and Akurum kitchen cabinet owners know that fact better than most right now. After two decades of reliable service, the Akurum kitchen was discontinued in February to coincide with the launch of Sektion, and as of October 2015, there are no longer any official IKEA Akurum door fronts. At all. In the world.
If you’re feeling down as an Akurum owner, you’re not alone. A typical IKEA store sells 10 kitchens a day. With 51 IKEA locations in the United States and Canada, that adds up to more than 180,000 kitchens a year. Semihandmade estimates that there are more than one million Akurum kitchens in homes all across North America, and all of them are out of luck if they need to replace water damaged doors or if they just want to update their style.
Cue the Superman theme because Semihandmade is here to save the day.
We have been making beautiful, long-lasting doors specifically for the last-generation Akurum system for years, and we still make doors that fit those cabinet frames. While you can’t get the official IKEA styles, you can choose from our selection of more than 50 different materials. Outfit your cabinets with real-wood veneers from our ECO and CLASSIC lines or get creative and explore color with our paintable DIY Slab and Shaker doors. We’re especially proud of our new IMPRESSION and SUPERMATTE lines (some doors even match IKEA prices).
IKEA may not have the supplies to get your Akurum kitchen in shape any more, but Semihandmade will always be here to make your cabinets look their absolute best.
