Here we will see about the IKEA Kitchen Warranty
Many homes are abuzz with DIY renovations and IKEA has been the go-to store for both first time Do-It-Yourselfers and old pros. But, there’s uncertainty about the warranty of their products.
So, let me break it down for you, so you don’t have to do all the heavy lifting. You’re doing enough with remodelling that kitchen!
IKEA has a variety of warranties limited to particular products in their kitchen and you can find that number alongside each product.
What is Limited Warranty?
Certain products in IKEA kitchen have a number of years they are warranted, which starts from the date of purchase or delivery if late. Hence, the original receipt will be required as proof of purchase. Whether it is for repairs or replacements.
Products Covered in The Limited Warranty and The Duration
When you spend a ton of money renovating the heart of your home, you want to ensure that it’s not all pomp and show- you want to get value for your money, twice or even three times.
So, here are the products that have limited warranty and what you can expect to be covered.
Sektion Kitchen (25-year limited warranty)
This warranty applies to home kitchen use only and covers the following parts of the Sektion kitchen system:

What Is Not Covered in The IKEA Kitchen Warranty?
It’s less daunting to think that a warranty covers every fault you can think of when coming to products you buy, because let’s face it, no one wants to feel like they could’ve made a better design decision well into renovating their kitchen or any part of their home.
But the reality is, that’s not the case. It is limited warranty at the end of the day, so you can be sure to expect a number of exclusions.
