Customizing IKEA cabinets the perfect solution for those appliances that need a unit that’s one of its kind. If you happen to have a 36″ apron front or farm sink or a gas cooktop of a 36″ width that’s not from IKEA, then a custom AKURUM base cabinet ($252.98) is the right solution.
For this specific unit, you’ll need the following materials to build your custom cabinet:
Things to remember:
- Make sure to check with your contractor for the specific hardware to keep your apron front sink cabinet in place. Different walls require different hardware.
- The front for integrated appliances we used in this example will add support for your sink bowl and it will also be enough to cut the 2 1/2″ strip under the sink frame.
- Don’t forget to add an IKEA plinth at the front to cover the AKURUM adjustable legs that support the cabinet.
- You can use the outlined item list as a purchase list to use at your local IKEA store and then provide the plans to your contractor.
