IKEA Maximera Drawer Fronts
« on: January 17, 2017, 08:12 PM »
I've been renovating my daughter's kitchen in stages: cabinet doors, counter tops, refrigerator, and other odds and ends:



Now she wants to replace the drawer fronts with Real Wood.  They are very nice and functional, but plastic-looking.  We believe they are by Ikea, their Maximera line.  I can't figure out how to remove the fronts to see how to replace them.  Here are shots of the side and the underneath:





The cabinet boxes are standard 32 mm boxes, so I could replace the drawers and glides, but I'd hate to go to that expense and trouble--even for my daughter! 

Does anyone have any experience with this system?

Cheers,
Crox

I believe that style drawer uses Blum hardware. Used some for the basement long time back. I can dig out the instructions if what you're got already fails, let me know.

Should be simple to replace the fronts.
