IKEA METOD and SEKTION

 (Request my free eBook, How to Budget for an IKEA Kitchen Remodel)

The new IKEA kitchen cabinet line, METOD, available since early 2014 in some European and Asian countries is likely to be announced in early 2015 in the US and Canada as SEKTION. There are two names because there are two size systems, metric sizes and Standard (inches).

The quality seems similar to the current Akurum frame system. There are more options, such as drawer components in different sizes. The new system is likely to be more useful for smaller kitchens.

Akururm is tried and true and will be gradually phased out as SEKTION is introduced. Since IKEA cabinets promote a 25 year warranty, keep in mind that there are likely to be Akurum components available for a few years to come and that it is VERY rare for a homeowner to keep a home, or a kitchen, for more than 10 years, by research.

Should you wait until the new system is released?

The best time to do a kitchen remodel is when the time is right for your own family and life. Products come and go.
