@Summer F. Ah, the late lamented JERKER desk! Never should have been discontinued, loved the adjustability, and the use of overhead shelves to clear up work space. Great job with the cutting table! I use my dining table and my back hates me for it.

I used to work at IKEA, so for me there was no question as to where we'd buy when we did a gut reno of our tiny (7x9) kitchen. We had our super assemble and install the cabinets and he was pleased with the quality and ease of use. (We had a Silestone hookup so we didn't order our countertops from IKEA.) Six years on, everything functions beautifully, and I love how everything fits together to keep our stuff organized. Yes, you can find a wider selection of styles and sizes elsewhere, but if you can work with what they have, why pay more? My brother's American Woodmark cabinets from Home Depot are essentially the same as what I got at IKEA for half the price. He and I recently installed a Kraft Maid kitchen for our Mom, and had many issues with damaged/defective finishes and hardware, not to mention we had to wait weeks to replace all the problem pieces. IKEA kitchens are a fantastic value and I wish more people would keep an openind about the store's perceived quality.
