Excellent quality product. Assembly wasPATRICKExcellent quality product. Assembly was a little confusing with some of the steps. Have assembled numerous IKEA products in the past and was familiar with the IKEA non specific instructions. These were even more difficult as the pictures didn't clearly show the orientation of the pieces. I always use wood glue during the assembly to help hold everything secure. Unfortunately with this product I had glued together a piece with the wood dowels how it appeared to go in the picture only to find out in one of the last steps that its was oriented wrong. Had to break off the dowels and drill them out and then purchase new dowels to re-assemble. Quality of finished product is great though. Just need better quality pictures in the instructions showing the proper orientation of the pieces.5
Product is great shipping isShellyProduct is great shipping is a nightmare.4
Wonderful addition to my kitchen.GwenWonderful addition to my kitchen. Offers plenty of extra storage and is beautiful. I had Task Rabbit put it together for me at a very reasonable $17. So glad I purchased it.5

Perfect Addition!ReginaThis piece was the perfect addition to our kitchen. It is very sturdy and a great size. The only thing that would make it better would be if it had a real butcher block top.4
Love my new kitchen island!!!LynnLove my new kitchen island!!!5
Great IslandStaceyThis is a wonderful addition to my kitchen. Love the work space and storage it supplies.5
Solid unit. overall very niceKEVINLike the unit and works well. I do wish the shelving side the horizontal board on the front of the shelf was thinner, it cuts into the usable height of the shelf make certain appliances and containers unable to be stored there.5
Best island!MarlynSo happy with this purchase! It fit perfectly in our small kitchen. It’s comfortable and provides extra storage!5
Could use that other half for shelvesTexanitaIn fact I did. Just bought a couple of boards, stained them and they rest on the frame to create more under-table storage. Generally it's a perfect kitchen island! Great height, utilitarian top surface. Use a cutting board, don't cut on the surface. It's terrific and good looking.5
Nice islandHazel1985I bought this a few days ago and love it! Fits my space perfectly, and added a nice touch to my kitchen. Easy to put together with 2 people.5
Good looks, quality better than most Ikea productsRobert_DiazMoving from an apartment with a massive kitchen island to an apartment without one immediately made me realize how important the island was to my cooking routine. I considered many options and decided to give the Vadholma a try. The Vadholma blended well with the kitchen appliances and cabinetry. The countertop looks great and its weight helps keep the island in place. Was easier to put together than expected and its more stable than the other Ikea products I have put together. After three months of daily use, its holding up as expected. No signs of warping, staining, scratching, or defects. My only grievance is that the VADHOLMA wine shelf or drawer units dont fit in the storage. A great value!5
Perfect!Obas KitchenI wanted an island as an addition to my kitchen. I priced matching island that would cost in excess of $2500. I got an email from Ikea and decided to check out their online site. After seeing the options I drove to Nobelsville and saw them in person. I was nervous that I picked the right one but when I got home and set it up, It couldn't be better and I couldn't be happier. Perfect colors and perfect size. Very satisfied with my purchase!5
Best IKEA item I’ve purchasedJCDesignPDXThis piece is expensive for ikea but we’ll worth it. I was nervous about the top after reading many reviews saying it warps. I’ve had it about 5 months and it gets heavy daily use in my kitchen. So far it’s held up beautifully and is very easy to care for.5
Favorite purchase EVER from IKEAAmradAmazing materials, super sturdy, easy to clean!! Loved it so much I bought a second and made a huge island for the kitchen!5
A very sturdy and serviceable islandZippityDudaThis island has solved a lot of space problems in our open-concept living space. The shelving on one side and seating on the other are a great combination. Helps with additional counter space. The only downside is that the pot rack to go with it has been out-of-stock for months - with that addition, this would definitely get 5 stars!4
Exactly what I wanted!AleighWe bought this island about 3 months ago and I couldn't be happier. The island is super sturdy and a great place to keep extra kitchen items. The additional space for food prep is wonderful. And having my kids or husband sit at the stools, either to help while cooking or just to eat, is awesome. Our kitchen really needed this. Best purchase ever!5
Love the Quality and look!Rodriguez8This is the first time I order from Ikea and im very impressed of the quality!5
best kitchen island everindependencebabybeautiful piece of furniture, sturdy construction, not too difficult to put together! exactly what the kitchen needed! we bought it for our daughter's studio apartment and plan on getting one for ourselves at a later date.5

Better countertops with fewer trees

At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilize materials in the best possible way. For our countertops in thick veneer it means that we combine old craftsmanship with modern manufacturing methods. It makes the countertops easier to install, more stable and more resistant to humidity compared to solid countertops. 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 utilize 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.

What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard 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.
