IKEA discontinued the Akurum kitchen! What can I do now?

IKEA AKURUM kitchen discontinued


The IKEA AKURUM kitchen was discontinued in early 2015 with door fronts for the cabinet system being discontinued in October, 2015. After nearly 20 years in the market AKURUM doors had vanished to coincide with the release of the new SEKTION system taking its place.

Sure, IKEA will continue to honor all warranties for AKURUM cabinet fronts but what if the doors are starting to look worn out, or discoloured from age or use? What then? Purchasing and installing a whole new SEKTION cabinetry package would be expensive and time consuming. IKEA AKURUM customers were suddenly left without alternative options.

If you have an AKURUM cabinetry system (How to tell what kind of IKEA Kitchen system you have) and you’re not sure what to do- you’re not alone. IKEA is one of the biggest kitchen providers in the world with well over 50 stores in North America to date. So it may come to no surprise that they on average sell up to 10 kitchens a week, per store. Over the course of 20 years... That’s a lot of AKURUM!

So… What can you do now?
