In 2015, Ikea changed their kitchen system from Akurum to Sektion. When they did so, they made the decision to completely stop making replacement parts for Akurum kitchens. For those of you hoping to simply replace your existing cabinet facing and skip the full reno… don’t despair! We can help. We can service Akurum kitchens stretching as far back as 2003. That’s a lot of kitchens.
First things first, we are not affiliated with Ikea, nor do we make or copy their doors. We do, however, create high-quality doors in a variety of colors, textures and materials that fit seamlessly with their system. When you buy replacement doors from us, you keep your existing cabinets boxes, drawer units, internal hardware, and hinges. You simply swap out your older fronts, panels and trim with your new Semihandmade order.
Here are a few things to consider when upgrading your Akurum fronts:
Semihandmade does not copy, or in any way replicate, Ikea’s doors - old or new. Our white doors will not be the same as Ikea’s white doors. Admittedly, some customers do combine theirs and ours, but please, if you’re considering that, order a sample to compare the two.
Many of the Akurum panels are 5/8” thick.
All Semihandmade panels and trim are 3/4” thick. You will want to confirm that this thickness works in your kitchen, specifically regarding tall panels (will your fridge still fit?) and base panels at the end of countertop runs (does it still fit underneath the counter?).
When ordering Semihandmade fronts, you will notice we have rounded our measurements up and down to simplify things a bit. As an example, a listed 15” x 30” door is actually 1427⁄32" x 303⁄16". Rest assured, these dimensions precisely fit the Ikea system.
All Semihandmade doors and drawer fronts are pre-drilled and ready to accept your current Ikea hinges.
If you would like for a Semihandmade team member to check that you've ordered the correct doors and panels, please take a picture or scan a sketch of the combination of each cabinet you are trying to replace with rough sizes, to the closest 1/8" (We will be able to match to the exact size) You can upload these drawings by selecting "Yes, please review my kitchen after placing my order" on checkout.
