our story

Who we are

We believe the doors in your home are the eye-catching quality that can transform any room into an impressive space that you will be proud to show off. 

Semihandmade is your partner in creating a modern, design-conscious space that you and your loved ones can enjoy. And the best part is you can do that without breaking the bank. 

Since our products are made to fit into Ikea systems, you have the freedom to customize your kitchen, media unit, closet or bathroom using our wide variety of doors to fit your taste.

Where it all began 

Semihandmade started in a workshop in Los Angeles, CA, with custom cabinet-maker John and his pup Molly sharing a couch and contemplating the future. 

They landed on a simple idea: to offer custom doors using Ikea cabinets as a base. 

One of the beauties of Ikea’s system is you don’t have to buy their doors. And so we were one of the first companies to fully embrace the functional designs of Ikea’s modular systems and focus on creating cabinet door and drawer fronts that define a homeowners’ space.

fast forward to today

10,000 kitchens, closets and bathrooms 

have been installed or remodeled 

using Semihandmade doors.

What we do 

From supermatte thermafoils to classic wood veneers, designers and homeowners can choose from over 40 options of doors which are available to be viewed in multiple showrooms across the country and online. 

 And we’ve expanded our offerings to include Ikea bathroom, closet, and media cabinets. Giving our customers even more ways to bring Ikea & Semihandmade into the rest of their homes. 


We’ve gone from being a sole proprietor to 80 people… and a dog.

We’re craftsmen, designers, global citizens, dreamers, and homeowners who work together to create beautiful,

 functional products built to make your home a better place to live.
