Plykea offers doors in both wood and formica-faced ply, as well as wooden spacer panels that can be placed between cupboards. A range of handles are available, including brass pulls as well as cut-outs in round or rectangular shapes.
The wooden fronts are created to fit perfectly to the original fittings, and are designed to appeal to those working within a limited budget but wanting different finishes to those provided by IKEA.
"Dominating Afteroom's sideboard is the straight lines that are a fundamental element of classical interior design," said Reform. "The graceful and elegant lines on the sideboard allow it to be easily integrated into any room and simply matched with other furniture for a look that is clean and uncluttered."
Startup company Plykea has launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA's Metod kitchen cupboards.
"We went to IKEA and bought one of their cheapest fronts, measured them precisely including all the drill holes, and then CNC-ed our fronts."
Reform, which specialises in customising IKEA's Metod and Sektion kitchen cupboards, enlisted the two Stockholm-based studios to create sideboards in hopes of making design-led fittings more affordable.
