Furthermore, if you require hinges for the Ikea Faktum system, we advise you to find a manufacturer who can produce these types of hinges as Ikea do not produce this system any more. In such instances, it is advisable to take note of how your cabinets operate, i.e. how you open the cabinets so you can find a suitable replacement.
You can take a look at Blum. Designed, engineered and made in Austria, Blum creates products that are stylish yet practical with inventive solutions for modern kitchens. Using the highest manufacturing standards, rigorous product testing and exacting quality control, you can be assured of a product that adds quality to your craftsmanship but will last the lifetime of the kitchen or beyond. Here, Noremax recommends finding a professional carpenter who can adjust hinges for the Metod system, available to purchase at Ikea, modifying them to fit the Faktum system.
Of course, if you have an Ikea Faktum system and your existing hinges are not damaged you’ll be able to reuse them when you choose to change the kitchen cabinet fronts.
IKEA designed their kitchens to only fit dishwashers they offer. If you have purchased dishwasher else where or already had one before buying IKEA’s kitchen please be aware that neither ours nor IKEA’s dishwasher front will not fit perfectly. You may find you will have to make custom adjustments.
The prices are more or less the same. However the finish you will choose for your fronts may affect the price.
No, we do not have a pick-up-point as the fronts are sent directly from the factory in Norway to customers.
Yes, our fronts are produced just like the IKEA fronts with holes for hinges and drawers.
Yes, you can order all Faktum fronts at Noremax as well as sides and plinths.
To find out whether you have IKEA Metod or Faktum kitchen, simply check out the holes on the inside of your kitchen cabinet. The Faktum cabinets have one row of holes along the edge, while the Metod cabinets have two rows.
The Faktum plinth is 16 cm while the Metod plinth is 8 cm. You can also check the dimensions on the fronts; Metod has even numbers like 20, 40, 60 and 100 cm. The base cabinets have different heights as well; Metod has a height of 80 cm while Faktum has a height of 70 cm.
Yes, the price includes colour and semi-gloss. There’s an additional cost of 5% for satin and 10% for matte.
You can either pay by invoice or PayPal. The order will not be sent to the factory until we have registered your payment.
Noremax does not have its own assemblers. In order to avoid damage and scratches which may occur during assembly, especially on lacquered / painted fronts, we always recommend to use professional carpenter.
Installing fronts is done in the same way as installing IKEA fronts.
All the fronts are produced for customer order, therefore they are not subject to refunds unless they are damaged in transit.
Only kitchen handles are standard products that can be returned in the original packaging and refund can be issues.
To maximise the lifespan of your cabinet fronts, it is important you follow instructions on how to reduce the risk of damage. All of our fronts are sprayed with a high quality lacquer but incorrect care could cause damage to the surface. Do not wash or scrub the cabinet fronts with strong chemical cleaning products as this can cause discolouration or damage to the surface.
Special care should be taken when using your oven; always keep the oven doors shut when in use to prevent damage to the kitchen cabinet fronts caused by high temperatures. Similarly, you should also take care of the front on your dishwasher if you have one to reduce the water and steam affecting the kitchen cabinets.
Here at Noremax, we offer plenty of options when it comes to handles. We offer a range of models with integrated mill handles (look at our models Instyle, Ontime, Circle and Elegance). For other models which don’t have mill handles, you will need to install your chosen handles or push system at your own discretion.
Across our website we offer a wide range of handles for you to choose from. However, if you are looking for push systems in particular, we recommend you visit Ikea. Furthermore, if you are not confident in installing handles or push systems, we recommend you contact a local carpenter who will be able to assist you.
The majority of our fronts are made of high quality furniture board MDF. Sourced from natural raw materials, MDF is very durable and does not warp or crack. Even with extreme changes in humidity and temperature, there’s very little chance of damage to your cabinet doors. Made from very fine particles, MDF does not have noticeable grain which results in a better and smooth finish, especially when the board is painted.
In terms of the ranges we offer here at Noremax the following fronts are made of MDF and then painted to produce a very smooth appearance; Basic, Instyle, Ontime, Elegance, Circle, Classic and Classic Style.
Our Nordic fronts are also made of MDF, but these fronts are then covered with ash veneer which highlights the beautiful natural structure of the wood. Depending on your personal preferences, these fronts can be painted, varnished or stained.
Finally, our Classic Max fronts are made of ash wood rather than MDF and if desired, these too can also be painted, varnished or stained.
To avoid ordering the wrong sizes, you will need to measure both the width and height of the fronts you currently have. If you are struggling with this, Noremax recommend you contact your local carpenter who will be able to assist you.
Likewise, if you are buying a brand-new kitchen from Ikea minus the fronts, it is advisable to speak to a member of staff at Ikea who should be able to provide you with all the measurements and specifications that you’ll need.
If you are planning on remodeling only part of your kitchen, there’s always a small risk that the colours will not match completely even if you provide the NCS colour. Unfortunately, due to the production of the fronts in batches, there’s a chance that the level of gloss and colour shade may differ from the rest of your kitchen.
A number of other factors can affect the colour of your kitchen cabinets including exposure to the sun, chemical products or the age of your existing kitchen as paint colours will discolour across time. To ensure your kitchen cabinets match 100% it is strongly advised that you change all fronts at the same time.
In order to receive your replacement fronts, it is essential that you provide the NCS code for your chosen colour. Also we will accept Jotun or Farrow&Ball colour code or name. We do not have a list of colours provided by Ikea so it is important you source this information prior to placing your order with Noremax. However we do several, the most popular colours on our website you can choose from if you don’t look for precise shade.
If you are struggling to find the information you require about the colour, we recommend that you ask your local paint supplier to assist. Most of them will be able to scan your desire colour or provide NCS code index and mix for you a sample. However this does not guarantee 100% colour integrity. The difference may be minor.
Please note: Noremax accepts no responsibility if you supply us with the incorrect NCS code so it is important that you make sure all information is true and correct upon submission to us.
Our standard kitchen front measurements are designed to fit Ikea kitchens however if you have another brand of kitchen, we are still able to help you. Noremax is able to produce custom made fronts for your kitchen, so do not hesitate in getting in touch.
If you would like us to help transform your kitchen, you would need to firstly select the fronts you would like, and then provide a detailed list of all fronts measurements with exact information about the diameter and spacing of hinge holes/ drawer fixings.
In such instances, you would need to take full responsibility for the provided measurements and so it is recommended that you get the assistance of a professional carpenter or architect if required.
Please note: If you are interested in Noremax producing custom replacement kitchen cabinet fronts, you will need to submit your request via email to your local Noremax representative as this is classified as a special order.
If you are a general handyman and feel competent in taking measurements, it’s likely that you’ll be able to change the fronts of your cabinets. However, if you are struggling or don’t feel confident in doing so, our advice is to contact your local carpenter, building company or kitchen fitter who will be able to fit the replacement kitchen cabinet fronts without any hassle.
Yes, the measurements are (as Ikea also gives them) in whole CM’s. However, the actual measurements on the fronts themselves are usually made with negative tolerances. This is done because there needs to be a tiny clearance so you are able to open the fronts without them touching.
NB: If the measurement does not show full CM’s, please round up to the nearest CM’s. For example: 29,50 cm would be referred to as 30 cm.
Usually we deliver within 6 weeks (all year round!) unless otherwise agreed.
