All IKEA kitchen cabinets are part of the Sektion system, which transitioned from the previous Akurum system, notes the IKEA website, as of February 2015. The Sektion kitchen cabinets are more modular and flexible and allow for personalization and functionality options. The new kitchen cabinet system is not compatible with previous Ikea kitchen cabinet systems but after-sales stock will be available while supplies last as of 2015.
Ikea Sektion kitchen cabinets do offer customers options in sizing, layout and finishes for the base frames and door fronts with options for hardware and shelf spacing.
The different cabinet finishes include Brokhult walnut affect in gray, Ekestad brown and Ringhult high-gloss white. The available finishes depend on the cabinets selected.
As of 2015, Ikea cabinets systems are the Sektion, presently available; the Akurum, currently offered while supplies last; and the Metod, the current European system measured in metrics.
