How to measure your project

Choosing a Styl-Panel design

When selecting a Styl-Panel design, please consider the proportions of your furniture or project. Some designs are better suited to rectangular dimensions. Others are more suited to square.

As a guide, look at the various ways we offer our designs for different IKEA units in our store. For example, Styl-Panel designs to suit IKEA Malm are suited to long rectangular drawers/doors. Styl-Panel designs to suit IKEA Kallax or Besta (60 x 64) are good for square drawers/doors.

Design considerations

Handles

Does the door/drawer have a handle on it? Will the panel interfere with the handle? Is the handle double or single-pin? 

Margin

With drawers, you have the option of taking the Styl-Panel all the way to the edge or leaving a margin. With doors, it's recommended to leave a margin to ensure that it can open unhindered.

Rounded or beveled edges

Does your door/drawer have a radius (rounded) or beveled edge? If so, base your dimensions on only the flat surface area of the door/drawer. 

Hinges and door opening

With doors, take a look at how the hinge works. European hinges (the type used in contemporary kitchen cabinetry and most flat-pack furniture) are common. As well as being concealed inside the cupboard, you can adjust these hinges for different door thicknesses and opening angles.

Take a look at how your cabinet door opens. In most cases, we recommend allowing at least 5 millimetres of margin between the edge of the Styl-Panel and the edge of the door. (Remember, the Styl-Panel will add 3 mm of thickness to the door.) Leaving a margin helps to ensure that the door can swing freely.

Multiple door/drawer sizes

Some projects involve multiple panel sizes - for instance, a dresser that has a row of small drawers at the top, medium drawers in the middle and large drawers at the bottom. Simple designs tend to work best in these situations (eg. Styl-Panel 1123, 1124 and 1125.)

Simple designs work best where multiple door/drawer sizes are involved. Complicated designs, with a lot of internal webbing, tend not to work as well because the internal angles change as the proportion of the design changes.

Maximum dimensions

The maximum dimension in any direction (width or height) is 1000 millmetres (100 cm/1 metre). This is the biggest allowable dimension that standard shippers will carry.

Materials

Our standard materials are available for custom orders. This includes 3 mm paintable foamed PVC in black or white and mirrored gold/silver aluminium composite panel. See our Materials & Finishes Guide.

Custom project process

We want you to get the best results possible, which is why we'll advise you if we believe that your Styl-Panel choice needs tweaking. Our design team is also great at adjusting the design to achieve a balanced and well-proportioned result.

To help our designers, photos of your furniture or project are warmly welcomed!

After you accept our quote in writing, we will create an invoice and email it to you. Once paid, your order will go into our design queue. This stage takes one to two weeks.

Our design team will prepare a technical drawing of your custom Styl-Panels. We will email it to you for your changes or approval. 

This is your opportunity to check the dimensions and the overall look of the design. Your Styl-Panels will only be manufactured after you have approved the design proof.

How much does it cost

Custom resizing starts at $29.95 AUD, plus the cost of panels and shipping.
