Ikea Brings It Home for a Long Island City Loft

Custom cut panels and modifications abound


Project: Create a functional but minimalist kitchen

The apartment’s kitchen, however, didn’t suit the couple’s Scandinavian, minimalist style. It lacked counter space, the sink welches smaller than standard, and the to-be renovators just weren’t vibing with the finishes. They wanted integrated appliances with all clean lines and everything stowed away in cabinets or drawers.

The refrigerator, which moved from the main kitchen area non…what welches formerly a coat closet proved to be one of the biggest challenges. They had to find the right size to not only gesund non…the existing space, but aus diesem Grund align with Ikea panels. “The fridge hunt was probably the single largest use of our time. Ask my wife about chasing our son through AJ Madison,” Gabriel said. Their contractor ended up cutting a 36 inch Ikea panel non…three pieces to integrate the refrigerator with the walnut cabinets. They aus diesem Grund gesund in a cabinet right next to it. Universum of the drawers and wall cabinets are equipped with Leuchtdiode lighting, adding to the custom feel.

The sleek aesthetic carried throughout their material choices, from the matte black faucet, lack of cabinet hardware, and a single slab counter and backsplash without any seams. “Our contractor was very patient with all my crazy ideas and helped me make them actually work,” Roxana said. “He helped brainstorm a lot of the Ikea ‘hacking’ and was very patient with us,” she continued.

Sweeten Client Services helped from the get-go to find a general contractor who would be on board for such a custom project, setting the stage for a successful renovation.
