MCM Kitchen design using ikea kitchen planner

Finally measured off the kitchen in the home we are preparing to renovate. Here's the final kitchen design (using ikea's super handy "kitchen planner tool"):

And here's the kitchen layout as we found it:

The new island is appx where the walker is in the "as is" pic. The wall where the oven is comes down, opening up the space and making room for the island to be the center of the kitchen. Had to move the laundry room door to the left side to accomodate the cabinets housing the fridge, oven and microwave (not shown)

awe man - that's a great remodel design - but those original wood cabinets look pretty sweet. please donate them to habitat for humanity or sumthing.

Yes, the wood is in excellent condition considering its over 50 years old. We will be salvaging as much of it as possible to donate.

those are great original cabinets. your new ikea kitchen is OK, but not to mid-century.

scott: after doing this myself (IKEA install), i can see a number of places where some modification would be helpful if not essential... are you looking for input? let us know.

Not sure why you want to replace (solid?) hardwood cabinets with IKEA particle board. Those IKEA cabinets may look good initially but they will wear horribly. There's a reason why they cost so little. Are you really going with that farmhouse basin sink? Those will be so dated in a few years. Stainless is getting pretty tired too. It's amazing they haven't updated appliance colors in decades.

You really might want to consider getting creative about using what's there. Many times new flooring, counters and appliances are all a kitchen really needs to feel "fresh".

I tend to agree with Van about getting to know what, if any, the kitchen needs via living with it a bit (or at least messing around with drawing up some "modification" plans as apposed to "gut and replace" plans). You could always have a carpenter or cabinet guy build any additional pieces/parts you need. Those old site-build cabinets are SO sturdy and rugged. We left our original cabinets in our kitchen, replaced the doors and drawer fronts, and had a carpenter puzzle in a new cabinet+counter-space for a wet-bar...

This was a pretty $ saving way to freshen up the look of the kitchen without a major demo. That said, you gotta make the place your own...

Good luck with whatever you eventually do.

FWIW, I too remodeled my kitchen with Ikea. Unfortunately, someone had refinish my kitchen in the 80's and the cabinets were no longer original. Rather than go with normal Ikea doors, I ordered custom walnut veneer doors from another company called Scherr's. Ikea cabinet bases and hardware are top notch. Their doors are hit or miss. Here's my before and after in case you want some inspiration:

I consider myself somewhat of an expert on ikea kitchens now (I did the bulk of the work myself) so feel free to ask questions.

Good Luck!
