An IKEA kitchen is a great solution to consider when remodeling your home on a budget. The IKEA Bodbyn kitchen cabinets allow you to achieve a classy shaker kitchen look. For this reason, they have won popularity over time.

IKEA Bodbyn cabinets come in an elegant off-white white or soft grey finish. They are not the cheapest cabinet fronts in the IKEA range, yet still very affordable. They allow you to achieve a shaker-style kitchen look on a budget, which is hard to find with other vendors.

To give the Bodbyn fronts a more unique look, you can pair them with elegant hardware and countertops. In the list below, I gather the most inspiring Bodbyn kitchen designs for you to get started.

Off-white Bodbyn cabinets

White kitchen cabinets are a timeless option and they will never go out of style. Bodbyn white is a subtle off-white cabinet color, which adds a subtle sophistication to your kitchen design.

According to this source, Soft Wool paint from the brand Valspar is a great color match for Bodbyn off-white if you are looking to paint your walls in the same color.

The layout of this corner kitchen catches all the daylight coming through those large historic windows. The white subway tile backsplash stands out against the black granite countertop. As the cherry on top, the chrome and black hardware adorn the cabinet doors.

The white trim underneath the ceiling stands out against the subtle greige wall color on the kitchen walls. The paint color also accentuates the white and black IKEA kitchen design.

An IKEA kitchen is the perfect match next to a historic pantry cupboard

In the example below, you can find Bodbyn off-white cabinets paired with historic kitchen elements. Because the Bodbyn fronts have a shaker impression, they match the historic style perfectly.

The drawer fronts are plain, just like in the original pantry and the paint color on the original cupboard is matched to the paint color on IKEA’s cabinets.

This spacious kitchen doesn’t include upper cabinets, giving it a very light appearance in the space. By selecting wide drawers exclusively, a minimal effect is achieved.

Grey IKEA Bodbyn kitchen cabinets

If you are looking to make a bit more impact with your kitchen design, you can select your Bodbyn cabinets and drawers in a grey color. Light grey kitchen cabinets will have a more modern effect in your space and they create a beautiful contrast with white walls.

Cancolour produces a color-matched paint color for the IKEA Bodbyn grey if you want to paint your walls or other furniture in the house the same color.

Depending on the lighting, the grey Bodbyn cabinet color can look light or darker. In the example below, the grey appears darker in the space. The upper glass cabinets allow for a lighter layout.

The Bodbyn glass fronts are great for creating a classic effect and a bit of variety in your upper layout.
