Orlando's Stunning Kitchen Reveal

When LA-based interior design blogger Orlando Soria decided to renovate his kitchen, he knew he needed to strike a balance between leaving his usual on-trend mark on the space while also staying within a reasonabe budget. Happily, through careful planning and his usual creative flair, Orlando was able to accomplish both by mixing Ikea kitchen cabinets and our Semihandmade Supermatte doors.

Floating Shelves - Why Less is More

Foregoing wall cabinets in favor of floating shelves is not just a trend, it’s a movement. In one fell swoop, designers eliminate over-fitted spaces, introduce beautiful rustic tones, and balance modern cabinetry and appliances with artisanal style. Instead of hiding, we’re displaying; instead of tightening the space, we’re releasing it.

Monochrome in Manhattan

It can be hard when planning a kitchen renovation not to swerve off course with the mountains of inspiration we see online. When it comes to putting together a plan for a small kitchen, it helps to remain focused – less can certainly be more. 

A New Direction

Chances are, you’ve heard by now that Ikea discontinued its popular Akurum kitchen line in 2015. The new system, Sektion, is amazing, and we’ll sell doors for nearly four-thousand projects this year alone. The good new is: Semihandmade makes doors that fit the Akurum system, too!

Semihandmade Solution #2: A Simple Scratch

Problem: I just noticed a big scratch across one of my drawers (marked in red on the image below). I thought I could just go to Ikea and get a replacement, but Ikea has replaced their Akurum system with the new Sektion cabinets. I can’t afford a complete remodel right now. Can Semihandmade just replace that drawer for me?
