How to elevate your IVAR cabinets

Want to customise your own set of IVAR cabinets? We love painting ours the same colour as the walls for a seamless, uncluttered look.

IVAR comes ready to paint, so don’t worry about sanding or priming your cabinets first. Begin by picking a paint that works well on wooden surfaces (we chose the moody hue NCS S6020-B). Next, measure out where you’d like to place your door handles (ours are leather) and drill a hole to fasten them.

Remember, this is the look we chose, but go with your style intuition and pick the paint colour and handles that speak to you the most.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
