A Review of Our IKEA Quartz Countertops

by Lisa | October 1, 2016

When I started my kitchen renovation last winter, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go with butcher block countertops, stone or laminate.  I knew I wanted something neutral that would work well with my farmhouse style, but I had to consider budget, durability and maintenance.

I ruled out butcher block fairly quickly because I was worried about having too much wood, since all the floors in my house are the original hardwood.  I know wood floors and wood counters can look really lovely together, but our floors are heart pine, which have a naturally amber hue.  I just knew they wouldn’t look right.
