IKEA kitchen cabinets might be labeled as “ready to assemble,” but the DIY installation is not a turnkey solution. To install an IKEA kitchen yourself, you will likely need safety glasses, screwdrivers (Phillips-head and Pozidriv types), an awl, a hammer, levels (medium and large), a measuring tape, a try square, G clamps, a fine-toothed saw, a hole cutter, a miter box and saw, a jigsaw, a circular saw, a drill, a nail gun, a crowbar, painter’s tape, a stud finder, and wood shims. If you have to buy tools, account for them in your budget.
