Whether you are having a complete kitchen
makeover, or just want to spruce up your work surfaces, it is important to
choose a surface that will offer a long life and improve the overall appearance
of your kitchen.
But what makes an attractive kitchen work
In kitchens with more modern designs, many people opt for stone-based materials like marble, but these can often come with their own array of issues. For instance, marble is very porous and can absorb the more difficult kitchen stains easily, creating blotchy and unremovable staining. Similarly, it is prone to chipping and scratching, creating an uneven and dulled surface appearance. And, unfortunately, the only way to rectify these issues is with professional help, which can often be pricey.
So, why not choose a more reliable material, that
is cheaper, more attractive and easier to maintain?

these stones are obviously attractive, they are no longer unique.
If you want to add a more unique touch to your
kitchen interior, choosing a wooden worktop will
certainly draw attention from visitors and create a more rustic appearance.

even more personalised touch to it!

Wood is naturally antibacterial, and this can
really help people with younger families who have concerns about hygiene. Also,
unlike marble, it doesn’t require excessive scrubbing to clean! Perfect!
Wood is durable and, when it is shaped into a
work surface, it is even more durable!
It is crack-resistant, heat resistant and will
not shatter if a weighty object is dropped on it, making it the perfect surface
for any kitchen counter.
Wood is a great visual choice for any kitchen, as
it can easily be varnished or stained to blend in with the overall kitchen
design. And, if you are changing the look of your kitchen, you can strip the
varnish or remove the stain without hassle! Simple!
Easy to maintain
Unlike many stone surfaces, wood does not require extensive specialist care, sealants or yearly varnishing to keep it intact. It is easy to maintain, making it the perfect choice for people who are busy or for those who would rather be using their time in the kitchen to cook!
