Looking for maple slab/flat reface doors (Ikea style)

8 years ago

Our kitchen remodeling plans have been contingent on the assumption that Ikea would offer a birch slab door (like the discontinued Nexus birch) in the new Sektion line available Feb 2. Ikea does offer such a door called Haganas birch in Europe, but unfortunately I just found out yesterday during a visit to Ikea in Palo Alto that besides the shaker style (similar to Orsa), Ikea currently has no plans to offer the slab birch style of door in the US Sektion line.

In the meanwhile, we have proceeded with other things that need to be done: some structural changes, selecting countertops, backsplash, flooring etc.

What we plan to do now is use Ikea Sektion cabinets (incl. drawers and hardware etc), and just get maple or birch doors and drawer fronts made by places that cater to homeowners doing cabinet refacing.

RTF/laminate doors are fine (actually preferred), so long as the quality is OK. It won't make sense to get cabinet doors that are high end or expensive. If you have light colored woodgrain (not necessarily wood) slab doors that you are happy with, I would appreciate your recommendations.
