  3. Alternative Uses for IKEA® Cabinets

IKEA® cabinet boxes are like LEGO blocks for adults. You can arrange, stack, or move them around in nearly any way you can imagine to fit your space. Some of our favorite customer projects have involved using Sektion, Godmorgon, and PAX cabinet boxes in unexpected ways from their original intended use from IKEA®. Most importantly, our custom fronts, drawers, panels, spacers, and fillers can be made in our 100+ material options to give you a stunning result.

Collected Eclectic's custom cabinet fronts from The Cabinet Face


Sektion for bathroom storage- Silverton Textured Melamine Slab

Use Sektion base cabinets in a bathroom to create traditional bathroom storage. You can create even more storage with tall vertical cabinets – perfect for tucking away fluffy towels and hanging bathrobes.


Godmorgon (used for desk)- Rift Sawn Oak Natural Wood Slab

Not a fan of IKEA®‘s standard desks, or want to make one unique to your home? Swap out your old office desk for an ultra-modern floating desk by using four sets of 2-drawer Godmorgon configurations.


PAX and Sektion in mudroom- Gray High-Gloss Acrylic Slab

PAX is traditionally shown as wardrobes in a bedroom setting, but don’t let that stop you. Refresh your mudroom and improve organization with a tall PAX closet, ideal for hanging up coats, backpacks, reusable shopping bags, and more.
