DIY / IKEA Hacking

What is IKEA hacking?

Hacking is simply the practice of taking an innovative approach towards an effective and efficient solution. Using our custom cabinet faces with an RTA cabinet system from IKEA provides the perfect balance — you get the quality, convenience and affordability of a mass-produced product with all the style and satisfaction of a custom build.

Is Dendra Doors® affiliated with IKEA?

No — we are not associated or affiliated with IKEA. All of our products are intended as custom options for use with RTA cabinet systems.

IKEA Systems

Do you provide cabinet fronts for all IKEA systems?

We provide doors and drawer fronts that fit BESTÅ (TV stand / entertainment unit), GODMORGON (bathroom vanity), PAX (closet / wardrobe) and in-stock SEKTION (kitchen) cabinet systems. We can also look into customized drilling for other IKEA systems.

Styles & Materials

What door styles are available?

We offer IKEA fronts in a variety of styles including Shaker, Slab and Raised Panel.

What materials are available?

We expand your design possibilities with IKEA cabinet fronts in metal, wood veneer, laminate, acrylic, decorative and painted finishes.

Use the Swatch Finder to search all available materials by type, design, wood, tone, color, finish, etc.

Can you provide panels and trim to match the fronts I’m ordering?

You bet! We can provide all of the cover panels, trim pieces, toe kicks, deco trim and filler strips required to complete your project. Unless otherwise requested, all panels and trim will be slightly oversized to account for inconsistencies in floors, walls and ceilings. Your quote will include all necessary panels and trim, based on the plans for your project.

Do you build glass cabinet doors?

We have both wood- and aluminum-framed IKEA doors available with coordinating glass, acrylic and mirrored insert panels in solid, natural and decorative finishes.

Can you match my current cabinetry?

We've had a lot of success matching many door styles and finishes! That said, we also know that matching new cabinet fronts to old is incredibly difficult — especially when you're only replacing a few doors or drawers in a large area. For this reason, we evaluate all “matching” work on an individual basis. To get started, please send us an email with a quick overview of your project and images of the current cabinetry in your home.


How much does a typical project cost?

Every DIY project is unique. Depending on the size of the project and the specific door styles and materials involved, the total cost for a Dendra Doors® order (including the material samples, design / layout, cabinet doors, drawer fronts, cover panels, trim, shipping, etc.) can range from $1,300 for a small bathroom remodel to $15,000+ for a luxury kitchen. With so many options to consider, arriving at a useful “ballpark estimate” for a “typical project” isn't very easy... Which is exactly why we offer free estimates on all projects!

What is your lead time?

All of our Standard Veneers and Painted Finishes have a minimum two-week manufacturing period. There is a three-week minimum lead time for custom orders and Specialty Order materials. Exact shipping time varies, depending upon your location, but typically adds an additional week to all orders.

I ordered samples from another company and it didn’t cost me anything. Why is there a cost to order samples from Dendra Doors?

With over 500 materials and 60 door styles available, it’s simply not feasible for us to keep every possible style combination in stock for immediate delivery. Rather than limiting your creativity with fewer options (like another company), we provide custom samples — made to order in the exact door style and finish material that you're interested in.

Please see our Samples Policy for more information.


Where do you ship to?

Dendra Doors ships all across the continental USA and Canada — right to your door! Offshore shipping is also available to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and Guam.

How will my order be shipped?

We rely on various shipping companies to deliver orders throughout our service area. Most orders will be shipped through an LTL freight carrier with liftgate service included for residential delivery. Unfortunately, inside delivery service is not available.

What if my order arrives damaged?

Cargo is inherently subject to potential damage throughout the shipping process. Though we take every precaution to ensure your order arrives in perfect condition, mistakes can still happen along the way. Please inspect your order thoroughly upon delivery. In the unlikely event that your shipment appears damaged , please contact us ASAP to file a freight claim.

Please see Damaged Shipments for more information.

I live around the area and want to save money on shipping… Can I come pick up my order?

Unfortunately, local pickups are not an option and will void your warranty as we are unable to replace any items damaged during transport by a customer.


Does everything come pre-drilled for IKEA hardware?

Yes — our cabinet doors and drawer fronts arrive pre-drilled and ready-to-install using IKEA hardware. Unless otherwise specified, all panels, trim pieces and custom (non-IKEA) items will not be drilled. Fasteners are not included.

Does my door order come with hinges?

No — we do not provide any hardware (door handles, drawer pulls, hinges, etc.) with your order. You will need to purchase all of the hinges and hardware required for installation from IKEA.
