Ikea sells a number of quartz and granite counters and they are definitely worth taking a look at. On top of the quartz slabs they also specialize in other stone, laminate and acrylic counters. If you don’t see exactly what you want in quartz, you might find something else that strikes your fancy!
It’s not just the kitchen work surfaces that will intrigue you - it’s the way they are displayed. Every counter has been put in a kitchen setting that shows off its brilliance and the integrity of the stone in the best way possible. When you walk through the showroom you’ll be able to see first-hand how these counters can look in a kitchen in full view.
It’s a drastic difference from merely viewing a small sample at a kitchen store or at a home improvement center! These small samples only give you an inkling of how the top would really look and it’s up to your imagination to do the rest. The less that is left up to the imagination when when making a purchase the better.
Cut the price considerably by watching for sales
Make sure to keep an eye on the local newspaper because they often offer mind-boggling sales that can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You can also look around for valuable coupons that can be used on the purchase of a new quartz counter. These coupons may be presented in the form of a flyer coupon on paper or as online downloadable coupons that you can print out. Either way, the savings can be massive if you wait for the sales.
Should you choose quartz and granite
Ikea countertops are offered as made-to measure slabs and the price includes installation. The worktops have a 12 mm stone layer and are absolutely stunning. They are heat-resistant, scratch-resistant and durable enough to last a lifetime if treated properly. Ikea is known for selling only top-of-the-line products and offers some of the best guarantees and warranties in the business.
You won’t find some of the more well known brands like Silestone but you will find a
quality brand of quartz called Caesarstone that offers all of the same benefits as the more well known options. (Update: Read the comments on this page before buying Caesarstone. These were all submitted by users of our website.)
If you compare their granite and quartz surfaces you’ll find that not only will they both make an excellent worktop but that the installation will also be done professionally.

The installation technicians that work at the store are kept busy! This is great news for you as a customer since you’ll be able to trust their knowledge and experience.

They have an incredible reputation for customer service and satisfaction so you know that everything possible will be done to get your countertop installed properly the first time.

We did well with Ikea. We chose their better line of wood cabinets, solid birch. We also chose their countertop by Caesarstone. Using their partnered contractors, and countertop installer is the way to go. They are familiar with the products and they do so many of these installations that they can do it with their eyes closed. From what I have read, many homeowners use their own contractors and sometimes they are good and sometimes not. Ikea products is a bit different so it is best to stick with those who know the products. The pricing was great especially if you purchase the products from February to April when they have their sale of 20% off on everything $5000.00. That includes the Caesarstone. What a break! We bought high end appliances from Vikings and Bosch and high end sink since I like quality. If you go with Caesarstone as oppose to a laminate, go and buy a better sink. Something that has a higher quality of stainless steel. If you ever wanted to change your sink out because it didn’t hold up or looked bad, you’d have to change the countertop that goes around the sink as well and that would be expensive. If you choose the best from each category of a kitchen, you can get a very high end kitchen with not so much the high end price.
Anonymous Where to buy good quality stainless sink? Galina L. There is no shortage in a good quality sinks everywhere, we’ve changed ours which was a builder installed for a newer and deeper undermount sink which costed around $200. It looks grate, but we have to rearrange all pipes underneath. It could cost us much more than that sink, but my husband managed to do the job himself.
