I’m a sparks, I see lots of kitchens.

I also fitted my own kitchen

Ikea cabinets don’t have a void behind them for services. This may or may not become an issue for you.

Lots of units you stand off the wall a little, check your worktop depth.

I’ve never seen a builder take an old kitchen out with sympathy.

Up stands cover lots of sins.

Ikea worktops are hateful to install. Most builders use Howden units and discounts are significant.

If you do it you self, set up a temp kitchen somewhere, it will take longer than you or your other half can deal without a functioning kitchen. Takeaways and microwave meals a week is about max before you start thinking “wish I’d kept a temp kitchen”

The right tools for the job are important.

Good luck.
