IKEA White Counter

Posted by ENMc (My Page) on

Does anyone here have an IKEA white counter? I really love the high gloss white counters made by .... hhmmmm, who? Why can't I think of it? Anyway, I want a dazzling white, no dots, no nothing but pure white. I want a thick, wide counter, maybe a waterfall style.

Can someone tell me what IKEA white looks like? The quality, I assume, is good...I mean, the cabs get high marks, right? So counters should be ok, too.

I have always had kitchens (rentals) with formica counters and while I don't like the look, I do love the abuse they take. I have always been able to put a hot pan, right out of the oven, directly on the counter.. no damage, at all. I'd love to do the same with IKEA.

RE: IKEA White Counter

Actually, the only white counter directly from ikea is their laminate, which isn't worth it. The actual laminate sheet is thinner than with most other laminate tops. You can purchase other kinds of countertops through ikea, but except for the butcherblock (which is a great buy) it's just like buying caesarstone or granite or whatever through any big box store--they just contract it out and take a cut.

It sounds like you're describing corian. Ikea sells it.
