If you guessed wood, you're only half right! They're made from recycled wood and plastic bottles.

The new KUNGSBACKA cabinet fronts — available now — are made out of recycled wood scraps and laminated with a plastic film made from recycled PET bottles. The result? Daring matte black kitchen cabinets that are both sustainable and beautiful.

"We must find ways to use recycled material to make a significant and long-lasting impact, where we don't just think about our generation, but for all generations to come," points out Anna Granath, a product developer with IKEA.

The doors come with a 25-year limited warranty. Plus, the plastic laminate means they're easy to clean. And did we mention they're made of recycled material?
