DisappointedSallyD83I bought This barkaboda worktop and whilst it looks beautiful it is completely unfit for purpose . I have had it installed for one day and it has already marked from spilling a cup of tea . Completely disappointed . Not Suitable for purpose1
Not fit for purposePip77The worktops were installed today by a professional fitter and they are just not fit for purpose. I expected quality but these worktops are not. After just one day they are scratched and chipped. My son put a cup down and even that scratched the worktop. Very disappointed and they will need to be replaced.1
Beautiful but scratches too easily!Gabriella2We've had our worktop in for less than a year and it is completely scratched. There is no way that IKEA tested this worktop before selling it, it's terrible quality. It looks beautiful but as soon as you use it, it will scratch. I'm so disappointed, I spent a lot of money on a whole new kitchen from IKEA and I can't even be proud of it because the worktop looks terrible.1
DisappointedMorganjHad new kitchen in just over a year worktop really disappointing scratches and marks so easily. Need a whole new length of worktop for it to look right again. Not cheap to buy in comparison to some of the other worktops and not durable for kitchen1
Very disappointedUlaGI'm very disappointed. This worktop marks and stretches very easy. After only one year using this work top looks like need replacing already... I won't buy worktop in IKEA anymore.1
Beautiful finish!Helen CKDespite other reviews, we have had no scratches so far! It was installed byan Ikea installation service and so maybe it is their professional touch! We had it installed in July and so far so good! Thinking of making a table and window sills to match as it really adds to the whole kitchen.5
WorktopJamesAABeautiful to look at but marks far, far, far too easily. It's an unacceptable product for IKEA to produce for a kitchen. Unfortunately I have found out the hard way having bought 6 worktops at a total cost of £750. They marked just on installation/ cutting, despite preventative measures to avoid scratching. We haven't even moved in yet so it's incredibly disappointing and there's no way I am re-cutting them again. I cannot believe IKEA did any form of testing on this product, it's that unsuitable for it's intended purpose.2
Marks really easyClarewatson81dinnerLove the look but marks and stretches really easy3
very FragileWindsorAdeWhile cutting this worktop and turning it over it sustained numerous scratches and dents to the corners and surfaces despite bending placed on cardboard and dust sheets, so much so that we are now replacing it with a more durable alternative. Very disappointing, even if it hadn't been damaged during fitting I question its durability over the life of the kitchen as it seems to scratch very very easily.1

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.

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.

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.
