How good are the IKEA granite countertops?

We are planning to put in granite or quartz countertops on our IKEA cabinets and wondering whether it is worth it to use the IKEA granite service. How does it compare price and quality wise - or does that depend on the store location?

We are shopping from the Woodbridge , VA store if that makes a difference.

It depends, since those countertops are outsourced to a local contractor/fabricator.

The final outcome will have more to do with the installation than the material itself.

Price-wise ... call around. Different regions/cities, different prices.

Re: How good are the IKEA granite countertops?

I get the impression that the granite slab industry has a number of producers that sell worldwide. Local prices vary according to the cost of transportation. Florida seems to benefit from having numerous ports.

In central Florida, Ikea offers excellent prices on granites whose names are familiar if you've visited Lowes or a stoneyard.
