Ikea Abstrakt red kitchen design

Yesterday we visited Ikea in Round Rock to look at the kitchen cabinets. Peter found it very boring, next time we’ll put in their creche. It was down to a choice between high gloss Abstrakt white or stainless steel Rubrik. Today I attempted to design a kitchen using the Ikea kitchen planner and discovered that doing a whole kitchen in Rubrik stainless steel isn’t really possible. The choices of modular parts are just too limited. There was a nice stainless steel demo at the Ikea in Round Rock but I now believe it’s impossible to make from standard Ikea modular parts without a lot of custom stainless steel work. So I did Abstrakt high gloss white but it looked pretty dull and boring. So I tried switching to Abstract high gloss red. I think it looks good.

The counter-tops are to be Caeserstone Quartz Nougat (white with chips in it). Obviously the counter-top is supposed to extend to connect the two bits sticking out the front of the island where the stools are, but you don’t seem to be able to have a counter-top without a counter underneath it in the Ikea kitchen designer tool.
