When you are decorating your home, using wood as
an accessory creates a timeless and impressive finish. Everything from wooden
drawers to wooden wall panelling makes any room look more classy without being
over the top, and will always be in fashion.
While it is not commonly considered by the
average homeowner, adding wooden work surfaces to your kitchen can provide you
with a functional and beautiful finish, that doesn’t require excessive,
expensive or time-consuming aftercare. And, of course, another advantage of
choosing wood to spruce up your kitchen is the variety of colours and grains

are the qualities of some of the wooden work surfaces?

So, what are some of the qualities of a beech
worktop? What makes this wood type our most popular seller? Read on
to find out!
As a naturally light wood, our beech worktop can add a golden hue to your kitchen.
With its unique wood grain, beech can often
appear to have a speckled pattern which, mixed with its natural golden
colouring, gives it a light amber appearance, this blends seamlessly with every
colour scheme that you may have in your kitchen.
While it is easy to assume that all woods are
durable, beech is one of the hardiest woods we have at House of Worktops, making it perfect for a kitchen worktop.
As beech is native to mountainous areas in
Europe, it has become naturally hardened and able to manage extremes in
temperature and harsh weather conditions. As a result of this kind of
exposure, the internal fibres of the
beech make it very weight, height and stress-resistant, making it a perfect accompaniment
for the budding chef.
Many people worry that having a wooden surface in
their kitchen will require a great deal of maintenance and aftercare.
Indeed, many granite or stone surfaces need
additional sealants, repairs and other add-ons to keep them looking their best
– why should beech be any different?
Requiring only an occasional oiling and cleaning
with a lemon water mix, beech is extremely easy to care for.
of Worktops, we are proud of the value we offer our customers. Due to our
sourcing of wood and our commitment to 0% waste, we can offer you and your
family a beautiful beech kitchen top at a competitive cost.
With growing eco-concerns, you will be happy to
know that at House of Worktops, all
of the wood we use is sustainably sourced, so you won’t have to feel guilty
about adding wooden features to your home decor which is an added bonus.
