My original thought is that it did not provide anything new - nothing that was not found on (free) blog posts or IKEA fans website......but as we move towards the installation phase of our kitchen, I have found myself referring to it several times - as it is easier than searching through blogs and forums. The many pictures are the most useful - often for answering questions that I have (not that the answer is in the book, but looking at the picture I am able to figure it out on my own - before constructing my own cabinets). The specific timeline was also helpful - as we will also be installing with only 2 people and completely DIY.....nice to have a comparison for planning purposes.
That being said - I am glad that I have done research elsewhere, as we are customizing our kitchen much more than the author of this book did.....plus every kitchen is different. This author simply chronicles his own experience and kitchen - and often sounds a little too smug about his own decisions - every person will have different ideas about what to save money on and what to splurge on, and how their preferences for style and layout.
for a couple of bucks - was useful to me.
I think it's great that this person chronicled his renovation and is making a little dough on the side, but there's really nothing in here that you can't glean from the web or ikeafans. There's nothing about attaching side panels, modifications, etc. All pretty basic stuff.
I'd give it 1 star, but it was only $3. If I'd have paid more, I'd be annoyed.
There was nothing in the book that wasn't obvious from the IKEA DVD and supplied instructions.
The construction of the peninsula as described in the book is completely contrary to the recommendations provided by IKEA.
You cannot use the adjustable legs on any cabinet that is not attached to the wall and IKEA clearly warns against installations like this.
If an adult loses balance and grab for the counter at the end of a peninsula it just may come crashing down, or at least it will move.
Be mindful of 'errors' like that in the book.
I had hoped the book would address tricky scenarios with solutions and 'better' ways to do things, but hardly any such material.
If you have never installed an IKEA kitchen before and you are hesitant because you do not know what it is all about the $3 for this book is fair and probably well spent.
There is nothing in this book a handy person could not figure out; it is more a diary of the installation process as the author experienced it.
Before you buy get the free IKEA DVD and/or visit the kitchen planning section of [...]
