For a long time, there were mainly two options when buying a new kitchen. If you had a lot of money, you would go with the custom-made kitchen cabinet solution, and if not, you would go to IKEA and get the affordable one that looked very much like the kitchen at your nextdoor neighbour’s house. “Everything was either really expensive or very white and perhaps a bit dull. I had an IKEA kitchen myself, where I kept the foundation but gave it a makeover with a new surface, new cabinet doors and new drawer fronts, and it changed the way the kitchen looked and felt. It was a different and pretty much unseen way of giving it a personal touch for a very reasonable price,” says Kristoffer Brems, architect and co-founder of &SHUFL.
