If you’re hoping to give your kitchen cabinetry, bathroom vanity, or even living room built-ins a facelift anytime soon, here’s a bit of exciting news: Semihandmade now offers fronts for any and all cabinet systems under the sun. This marks a major change for the DIY- and designer-beloved brand, which first launched as a semi-custom solution tailored specifically to IKEA products and has been used by tastemakers like designer Sarah Sherman Samuel and Chris and Julia Marcum of Chris Loves Julia. Now, whether you have an IKEA kitchen or console in your home — or you haven’t the faintest clue as to what kind of cabinets you have — you can still order Semihandmade doors and drawers to update your fronts in a more affordable, sustainable way.

Like the offerings Semihandmade has for IKEA cabinetry, these replacement fronts come in over 35 color and style pairings. Whether you want a more modern, streamlined slab-style front or are shopping for classic Shaker simplicity, you can find a solution that’ll work for your space and taste. These fronts will also be offered in the brand’s popular paintable DIY options, which allow customers to paint their fronts to any color of their choosing. Undrilled and drilled fronts (in a series of pre-determined drill patterns) will be available as well, and Semihandmade will carry hinges to fit the pre-drilled versions for extra ease in installation.

Ordering, of course, requires measurement, and Semihandmade has a step-by-step guide on their website for this process, since dimensions aren’t standard the same way their IKEA offerings are. Upon purchase, replacement fronts and any accessories for your project will get shipped to your door, and you can certainly visit a showroom or order samples before committing to any given style or colorway.

Want a little inspo before you take the leap? Browse their project gallery (over 20,000 makeovers have been completed with Semihandmade, so this is just a sampling). The brand is also running a summer sale right now (20 percent off IKEA fronts, 10 percent off accessories, and free hinges and drilling with purchase of the new, non-IKEA cabinet doors), which lasts until July 5, 2022. Now’s a good time to if you’re ready and able to!
