What Should You Know About IKEA Kitchens?
Kitchen remodels are a popular but pricey project for many homeowners. With people spending more time at home right now because of COVID-19, undoubtedly, many are considering remodels.
To save money on kitchen projects, some homeowners go the IKEA kitchen route.
You can ultimately save thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, but is it worth it? That’s a decision that’s up to the individual, but there are certain things to know about an IKEA kitchen.

UPDATE FOR WEEK OF MARCH 29
Adults age 18 and older can now register for the COVID-19 Vaccine Standby Pool at vax.mymanatee.org. Only those who meet eligibility requirements will be scheduled for appointments. We have begun scheduling appointments for adults 40+ this week at Tom Bennett Park and the Public Safety Center. We will begin vaccinating adults under 40 starting April 5.
Those who are deemed extremely vulnerable by a physician (form required) may schedule appointments for vaccination at the Department of Health in Manatee County. See more information.
Manatee County is not opting into a new statewide registration system at this time. Local seniors who have enrolled with the local registration system DO NOT need to enroll in the new state system. Signing up for state’s My Vaccine system will NOT get you a vaccination appointment in Manatee County because the system is not yet in use in our county.
COVID-19 vaccinations are now available at select CVS, Publix, Walgreens, Walmart and Winn-Dixie locations in Manatee County.
