IKEA has perfected the modular components needed to create a beautiful design to fit any space.
IKEA is a great option for the DIYers, especially when combined with customized door fronts from STiL.
Is STiL affiliated with IKEA?

Why Choose STiL?
Choose your STiL
With STiL you have a wide variety of products to select from to make it your own. Our European style fronts allow you to choose a single material or choose a combination of different finishes to create your perfect kitchen that matches your STiL.
STiL fronts are of the highest quality
All of STiL’s fronts are made with a premium grade ¾” MDF core, whereas IKEA fronts are made with a ½” particle core. Using a solid MDF core improves the stability of the fronts to avoid warping or twisting.
STiL has options...Great options!
STiL doesn’t want to overwhelm you with options. We have weeded through the thousands of finishes out there in the world and carefully selected a number of options that are of the highest quality and best looking. They are timeless, beautiful and will last your lifetime!
STiL has more options for fillers, gables and panels
STiL Reveal - It’s all in the details and STiL pays attention to them!
STiL Reveal is a detail that provides a polished look between your cabinets and counters. It is a product we’ve designed to allow your counters to float off of the cabinet fronts with a ½” finished edge reveal. This is a great option if you’re wanting your counters to be flush with the front of your cabinet fronts. STiL Reveal replaces the metal support brackets for the installation of solid surfaces. Countertop companies love them because it provides a much more solid substrate for the counters to sit on.
Customize with STiL
STiL comes ready to install
Our fronts come pre-drilled in the same way that all IKEA fronts are. Installing STiL fronts is the same process as installing IKEA fronts.
STiL has floating shelves
Floating shelves are a great way to add an interesting element to your kitchen and display those unique pieces that shouldn’t be behind doors. STiL offers 1 ½” floating shelves at varying different lengths in our Recon, True Wood and Simply Raw Collections.
STiL “Bookmatches” (also known as “sequence-matches”) its wood fronts
STiL does it’s best to bookmatch all wood fronts with variations in the grain. Bookmatching doors is a process of mirroring all of the wood sheets so that the grain lines are aligned from one door to the next. The result… a beautiful flow of grain throughout your kitchen.
