The BEFORE home, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn
Recently we are discovering more info on IKEA's brand-new SEKTION home cabinets, due to the help of Dan Goldman from Brooklyletter's PANYL. Today we're going to see SEKTION in action!
Some tips about what the space appeared as if when Dan along with his group arrived: "The kitchen had almost no storage space or countertop area, the cabinets had been old and grimy, plus the refrigerator loomed across area like a metal elephant, " Dan states.
Meanwhile, a nook directly opposite the sink sat bare.
"We planned to install brand new base cupboards in a U-shape, with an L-shaped run of upper cupboards over the kitchen stove and sink, " Dan says.
Opposite the kitchen stove could be a peninsula with extra storage.
The far side of the peninsula is a breakfast club, framed in by straight countertop panels, and finished with a sizable trim panel.
And that stainless-steel elephant of a fridge? It had been getting moved to the nook opposite the sink and boxed in with trim panels and cabinetry.
Base Cabinet Construction
"IKEA SEKTION flat-pack construction will likely be familiar to any person skilled when you look at the IKEA arts, " Dan notes. "Although many tiny modifications were made, particularly towards the design associated with the synthetic legs and suspension system train system, the fundamental construction is related to AKURUM."
After cutting an opening within the straight back panel for plumbing system, Ron along with his team setup the first SEKTION corner case.
The floors were very warped, therefore it took some tinkering to level the spot pantry because of the feet.
The brand new suspension railway system enables you to slide the installation brackets onto the railway initially, after which pass them through big rectangular cutouts in the rear of the case. "this really is an improvement over the prior technique, where you must peer through a little gap into the back panel to find and thread a bolt though a tiny fan, " Dan notes.
Once each cabinet ended up being amount, Ron tightened a threaded synthetic peg to immobilize the connecting bracket from the suspension railway.
"After joining the DÖMSJO sink pantry toward first place pantry, we left a place the dishwasher, " Dan says. "The run carried on with another SEKTION place case, a trash bin closet and a five-drawer MAXIMERA base case."
Ron used a sawzall to eliminate the baseboard molding between the wall surface while the adjacent cupboards.
The whole base pantry run was then pressed flush against the wall surface.
The past step would be to rip a piece of AKURUM PERFEKT trim panel to pay for the rear side of the peninsula cupboards.
Wall Cabinet Construction
"The brackets can be slid on the rails initially then placed through the openings within the cabinets, or they can be attached to the cupboards very first before sliding all of them onto the train, " Dan claims. "after the cupboard is in location, the plastic peg is rotated 25 % consider prevent the brackets from going along the rail.
We assembled a lot of the case structures before Ron came, enabling him to make fast work for the top cabinet run."
The box-in of this fridge had been another place where Ron's deep knowledge repaid. "once again we used AKURUM PERFEKT trim panels which Ron slashed to size and braced to your flooring and wall, " Dan claims.
Dan goes on: "The SEKTION system is designed to use IKEA's appliance line. This ice box had been somewhat wider than an IKEA design, so for over-fridge storage we fastened two 30" large SEKTION microwave oven cabinets collectively after which switched all of them onto their edges.
This is why shelf peg holes and cabling slots tend to be noticeable. Ron sandwiched this set up amongst the two trim panels before fixing all of them into the wall surface with a suspension rail. The suspension railway brackets tend to be included in IKEA's standard plastic snap-on covers. (they will haven't upgraded those, sadly)."
Setting up the MAXIMERA cabinet slides ended up being easy. However, there were very a bunch of all of them!

Thanks, Dan, for revealing this task around!
