Let's Get Started! You've Got Questions

Our Process

Coming up with a design can be a challenge! Fortunately, we have been there before and we can help! In designing a layout, there are general guidelines but there is not one design that fits all. Our measurement and design service will provide you with a detailed floor plan, dimensions and an itemized parts list.

We will then build and install your cabinets according to manufacturer's instructions which is the only way to install it right. Throughout every stage, we communicate regularly with you to make sure you are aware of our progress.

Our service is fast, efficient and inexpensive. Contact us today to get started with your FREE NO-RISK CONSULTATION.


Measurement is a crucial step to starting the process as it helps ensure your new kitchen will fit your space and also function correctly. Careful measuring is key to the success of your new kitchen. Precise measurements and an accurate survey of the conditions of your existing space lead to an accurate kitchen plan and simplify the installation.

Stiil offers an on-site Measurement Service that will send an experienced professional to your home to assess the conditions and provide accurate measurements. Our Measurement Service is billed at $45.


Design is the next stage in the process. A successful project begins with a great plan and design that fits your space. From the measurements collected, we use IKEA Home Planner software to create a suggested plan with all measurements.

The plan will include 3D drawings in PDF format including walls, doors, windows, ceilings, cabinets and appliances. After you sign-off on the design, we will produce a complete cabinet and parts list. Design is billed at $255 and includes up to four revisions at no additional charge. For an additional $49, we will also include your IKEA home planner file for you to make later changes.


By selecting our Ordering Service, you will not have to wait in line and wonder if you got order details correct. We will place your order with the IKEA store and make arrangements for delivery to the assembly location. With this option we guarantee all parts and will replace any missing or faulty items. To accurately estimate the Ordering Service, we will need a detailed design, item list and/or an on-site visit.

Build + Installation

We will first verify delivery of all parts and components, followed by the professional assembly of cabinets, drawers, sliders, carousels, etc. To minimize disruption in your home or business, this work can be done off-site. Modification of cabinets, if necessary, can also be done on request.

After verifying your design and space, we begin the installation, typically starting with the upper cabinets followed by lower cabinets. Then divider panels, kickplates, filler pieces and trim are installed.

Build + Installation services can be billed based on your requirements by choosing one of these options.

1. Total Project:

25% of overall purchase price.

2. Per Cabinet:

$89 per cabinet.

3. Hourly:

$50 per hour. To accurately estimate your build + installation costs, we will need a detailed design, item list and/or an on-site visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I build my own cabinets and let Stiil do the installation?

Stiil does not recommend a "build only" or "installation only" service. We are very particular about how the cabinets are assembled as the strength of the frames is based on proper assembly. We know what we are doing and strive for only the highest standard of installation. Our customer satisfaction levels are higher when we perform both services.

Do I need professional measurements before I get started?

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our Measuring + Design services. This will provide accurate measurements that account for room dimensions, filler pieces, ceiling height, windows, doors and more. This simple and inexpensive service will give you peace of mind and could prevent costly mistakes.

How long will it take to install my cabinets?

A wardrobe installation can take between several hours to several days depending on the complexity of the installation. A kitchen installation can take several days to several weeks depending on size and services included. A full project including demolition, plumbing, drywall and electrical work will take longer. Stiil will work with you to install the cabinets at a schedule that works for you.


IKEA provides a contemporary design with a European feel at great value and quality. Brand new IKEA cabinets installed are much less expensive than custom European brands and even cheaper than most refacing options.

IKEA has numerous styles and colours to match any taste. Their cabinetry features top-end hinges and drawer guides with soft close systems. Flexible and convenient storage options for any size space.

There is a 25 year warranty on all cabinets.

Why hire Stiil?

IKEA kitchens and wardrobes are designed around the "frameless" concept that is the industry standard for Europe. Many local installers are unfamiliar with this type of cabinetry and approach the installation process with a "how hard can it be" attitude. Most North American cabinets are preassembled "face-frame" cabinets and most installers only have experience with this type of installation. Stiil will install your cabinets according to manufacturer's instructions — the only way to install it correctly.

What the heck does Stiil mean?

Stil (with one i) is the Scandinavian word for style in Swedish, Danish, Dutch and German. In Scandinavia it's pronounced like "steel", but you can say it anyway you like!

Some of Our Recent Projects

"Great service. Very reliable. Derek helped us design a fantastic new open concept kitchen and install it. Not only did he do great work at a reasonable price, he was very patient when we had to return some parts and re-order even going above and beyond by loading the materials in his vehicle and coming with us. They provide excellent service for a very reasonable price and make sure that the customer is happy."

— client, Joseph D.

"Always communicated changes, asked for feedback and finished project only when I was fully satisfied with the work. Replied in a timely manner to emails and questions/concerns. Went out of the way to get extra small supplies as needed when project scope changed. Overall, pleased with service and results."

— client, Sharleen P.
