    Hi there
    We're getting an ikea kitchen and want wood worktops but aren't very impressed with the ikea ones. They're ot solid wood and seem to chip easily (lots like that in store)

    Can anyone recommend a place to get oak worktops?

    I've seen barncreast and Norfolk oak but are they worth the premium over places like woodworktops.com or worktop express

    Thanks
    Tom

    Not sure what Ikea tops you mean the wood are all wood and the others are laminate.
    You can get cheap oak tops from Selco , £89 +vat.
