CONSHOHOCKEN, PA, 2014-9-19— /EPR Retail News/ — Starting February 2, 2015, IKEA U.S. will begin selling a new kitchen system called SEKTION, which will replace the current AKURUM system. SEKTION is a more modular system and will offer new opportunities for better use of the interior space inside each cabinet plus an option for integrated lighting. The AKURUM and SEKTION systems are not compatible.
Homeowners can continue to plan and purchase the current IKEA kitchen system, AKURUM, until February. Rated by customers as “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” in the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Kitchen Cabinet Satisfaction Study, IKEA AKURUM kitchen cabinets are a great value. In fact, 7.7 million AKURUM kitchen cabinets have been sold since its introduction in 1995. IKEA will continue to honor the 25-year limited warranty on AKURUM kitchens after it is retired.
SEKTION will be comparable in price to AKURUM. A Q&A is available HERE; more product details and complete pricing for the new SEKTION kitchen system will be available in February.
