Edge liftingPutaindemerdeInstalled about 2 months ago and side edge is already lifting2
What"s the third dimension Ikea????WhatIsThisNonsenseWhat's the third dimension Ikea????2
Lovely surface, ends not soKevmac63Bought this for our kitchen renovation, was a bit apprehensive about cutting it, bought sharp blade for saw and got a clean cut, the end veneer came prelude and stuck on okay, but now is coming off and I will have to redo the end, otherwise looks a million dollars.3
XgbrLove the colour. Sealed well.4
Quality feelContainersOverall finish was very good. Edging the cut end where exposed was quite a challenge as a novice, however patience and perseverance won out to a great result.4
Quality is not reliableMCharmsThe benchtop started to crack up and get litte marks.3
Lovely look.boo14We installed these a year ago, to replace old 80s laminate. I was initally concerned how they would hold up (would they mark easily? would I have to be super careful about what I put down on the bench?) However having used them for a year now, I can say they are still in great condition. As with any other timber or stone benchtop, you have to be careful with things that are acidic (lemon juice is the main thing we are careful with). Otherwise, everything else wipes off with soapy water and a sponge. We have reoiled the bench once now, as it was looking a little dry, but we are used to this as we butchers block counter in our previous home. The timber is lovely and warm, and the colour quite seems to change depending on the light, which is beautiful. We were able to replace all our benchtops for under $800, and it looks so lovely in our 1950s cottage style home. Great work Ikea!4

Better worktops by using wood smartly

Wood is a precious natural resource. Even though it’s a renewable material it needs to be handled responsibly. One way to do it, is to use the wood more efficiently. That’s what we do with our kitchen worktops in thick wood veneer.  Read More
“At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilise the materials we have in the best possible way,” says Johnny Rietz, who’s been involved in developing the kitchen worktops in thick veneer. The work started in 2008 when IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad, visited one of our suppliers and asked a simple question that took some time to answer: ‘How can we make this product using fewer trees?’

Less is more

“After some trials and errors, we came up with the solution. A core of particleboard and a layer of solid wood on the outside – or thick veneer,” says Johnny. “It’s a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern manufacturing methods. Paper-thin veneer has been used in fine, decorative furniture making for centuries, but for our worktops we’re using a much thicker layer of wood.” The thick veneer makes the surface hardwearing, and it saves raw material – a lot of it. From the same amount of wood needed to make one solid worktop, it’s possible to produce five thick veneer worktops.

No wood is wasted

Another advantage with this production technique is that you can use the whole tree; the stem as surface, and scrap bits – curvy, bent branches and small twigs – for the particleboard on the inside. The end result is a worktop that is every bit as genuine as solid wood, only more stable and more resistant to humidity. “Sometimes a small, harmless question can make a big difference. That’s exactly what happened with our kitchen worktops. It started as a challenge to use resources wiser, and proved to have positive effects not only for the environment, but also the quality. I think it’s great when that happens!” says Johnny.

Built and tested to last

We believe that our kitchen worktops should meet your highest demands when it comes to design and performance, without compromise. That’s why we test our worktops, and put them up against the everyday challenges they’ll face in your kitchen: liquids, oil, food, steam, heat, bumps and scratches. When they’ve passed our testing, we know they’ll last, and we guarantee it for 25 years.

Thick wood veneer = craftsmanship + innovation

With thick veneer we’ve taken the best of solid wood and combined it with advantages of veneer to create beautiful and hardwearing surfaces. The layer construction is less likely than solid wood to bend or crack and the worktop is pre-treated with hard wax oil to create an easy-care surface that does not require oiling before the first use. What’s more? This innovative technology enables us to create unique and distinctive expressions while efficiently using the whole tree.

Better worktops with fewer trees

At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilise materials in the best possible way. For our worktops in thick veneer it means that we combine old craftsmanship with modern manufacturing methods. It makes the worktops easier to install, more stable and more resistant to humidity compared to solid worktops. And since we use the whole tree – even the crooked branches and the small twigs – we can save natural resources too.
