Four years ago, interior design gurus Amy Kent and Ryan Martin identified a particular market: IKEA customers craving high-end kitchen customization and material upgrades. And voila: Croma Express Kitchen Design. Using, for example, a standard melamine cabinet as a base, Croma Express adds character with custom backsplashes and countertops and slick cabinet knobs, pulls and fixtures. Favoured upgrades include Caesarstone countertops from Ciot, undermounted sinks from Ginger’s and GE appliances.
