The collection of wood-style thermofoil and MDF fronts are all compatible with IKEA’s Sektion cabinets, are high-traffic and kid-friendly, and work for varying interior styles.

Cove, the most popular of the three doors, is akin to a light oak, while Dusk is slightly warmer, and Saddle has the richest hue of the trio.

    Excited for the non ikea cabinet fronts

    • This would be a dream come true! We bought our first house back in September and haven’t been able to move in yet because of unexpected money issues. semi handmade was my choice for our kitchen from the beginning But unfortunately we haven’t even been able to install our kitchen yet so this would be a bigger blessing then you’d ever know. I’m so ready to be in our own home and out of our in-laws house. We are just beginning in the renovations again so this is perfect timing!

    We love how semi handmade brings life to ikea cabinets . We are planning our kitchen and plan to go with semi handmade

  • I’ve been following @chrislovesjulia for a few years now and just love everything!! My 1982 split-level ranch needs a lot of updating, especially in the kitchen. I painted our cabinets about 6 years ago but it’s time we upgraded and these semihandmade cabinet fronts would be perfect!! I love the cove ones especially. Hoping we win!!

  • We ordered the Bonneville Floor Pops Peel and Stick Tiles designed by Chris and Julia for the kitchen. A semihandmade kitchen with CLJ would be the icing on the cake!!

  • David Bailey says:

    Love this. My wife and I are building our new home and a kitchen from Semihandmade would be amazing.
