Run Don’t Walk: 6 Items to Snag at IKEA’s Big Kitchen Sale
Time to start that renovation.
Published Nov 8, 2018 4:42 PM
Looking for a weekend project? Thanks to a generous sale currently on offer at IKEA, it might just be time to dive into that major renovation you’ve been putting off: the kitchen.
The IKEA Kitchen event has returned, this time largely focused on renovation materials, instead of smaller homewares. Think cabinets, faucets, countertops, drawers, and more. Though some restrictions exist, pretty much every item that can be grouped with the Swedish retailer’s kitchen renovation offerings are now 10 percent off for IKEA Family members—until Sunday, November 11.
Drawers, cabinets, and countertops are an obvious choice for a total kitchen revamp, but if you’re not in a position to go all out, you can still snag some more accessible deals from the sale, like pretty, modern faucets and accent hardware that can transform your existing cabinets at a much lower price point. If you’ve been in the market for new appliances, IKEA’s range of stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and other, bigger buys, also boasts the 10 percent discount.
Not sure where to begin? These six on-sale picks make a worthwhile investment.
Eckbacken Countertop, IKEA, $89.10
The concrete effect of this laminate countertop gives it an elevated appearance, as well as stain-proof durability. It’s versatile and can be easily incorporated with design schemes that range from rustic to contemporary.
Insjön Kitchen Faucet, IKEA, $134.10
On-trend brass fixtures can instantly brighten a space, though many can cost a pretty penny. With a sale price under $140, this faucet has the look of a much pricier investment pieceand comes with a 10-year warranty.
Borghamn Handle, IKEA, $6.29
These rustic handles refresh cabinets without requiring any expensive installations. Install them horizontally for a traditional look, or slot them vertically for a quirkier, unexpected touch.
Nutid S25 Side-by-Side Refrigerator, IKEA, $1,214.10
This refrigerator, a new model from the company, comes equipped with adjustable door storage to make sure groceries find their proper place. It also has a built-in fan, which maintains air circulation and temperature throughout, to optimize food freshness.
Bodbyn Glass Door, IKEA, $89.10
Kitchen cabinets are an investment and can determine the look of the entire room. If you like the on-trend look of open shelving but worry about dust, opt for doors with windows. The grey hue of this option looks fresh and contemporary without edging too far into trendy territory.
Vaskad Built-in Dishwasher, IKEA, $764.10,
With the outer appearance of a sleek white cabinet, this dishwasher blends into its surroundings. Plus, it uses only 3.5 gallons of water per load—less than it would take to wash dishes by hand.
