Product details

Free-standing kitchen island; easy to place where you want it in the kitchen.

Gives you extra storage, utility and work space.

Worktop with a thick oak veneer, a hardwearing natural material that can be sanded and surface treated when required.

For quick installation and easy maintenance the worktop is pre-treated with hard wax oil.

Layer construction adds stability and makes the worktop less sensitive to humidity, thus, less likely to bend, split or crack than solid wood.

The worktop has a full plank design that gives it an authentic plank expression with a genuine wood feeling.

Oak is an exceedingly strong and durable hardwood with a prominent grain. It darkens beautifully with age acquiring a golden-brown undertone.

10 year guarantee. Read about the terms in the guarantee brochure.

Kitchen IslandJulieFantastic quality, fits in well in my kitchen.5
Be careful if you buy two islandsMichelleI purchased two Torviken islands to be placed side-by-side in my kitchen. I'm aware that the veneer on the top and shelves are a natural product but I hoped that by purchasing two at the same time, they would come from the same batch and thus be very similar. Instead, the top of one bench has a very different colour and pattern than the other (a pink tone and very busy striping), and the colour is also different than the shelves below on the same unit (which match the shelves and the top of the second island.) Now I have to figure out if I have time to take the top back to the store to hopefully exchange it for another, though I doubt I will be allowed to open boxes until I find a top that more closely matches the other unit. Suggestion to IKEA- can the packaging please be improved so that a portion of the top can be viewed before purchase?2

The product is what itAvinashThe product is what it is, good as a kitchen island bench4
Looks nice and sturdy, but lack of finitionsQuentinI was looking for a kitchen island for a while and it's looking better than I expected. Assembly of the island was much easier than the chairs (both were a nightmare to assembly). However, I am a bit disappointed by the lack of finitions. The benchtop has 10 cm of red tone wood which does not look nice. It is supposed to be light brown. There are also red patches along the whole length on the wooden undershelves. Speaking of wooden undershelves, they are smaller than the width of the island, which means that there is a 1 cm gaps on both sides (and yes, I tightened everything like crazy). For 550$, it's the kind of small details which ruin a bit the happiness post-assembly.3
Perfect addition to our kitchenRobThis is one of those great products that looks as good in your home as it does in the showroom. It is functional, solid and beautiful plus it was straight forward to put together and took me an hour on my own. Highly recommended.5
LoveTenitaAbsolutely love this. We’ve moved into an old house with almost no bench space so it has been a life saver! It’s well made and looks great.5

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.

“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.

Material

What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet fixed on things like particleboards to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak and beech and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
