Why choose a beech worktop?
Many of those who visit our centre here at House of Worktops do so with the
mindset that oak worktops are the best and only option. However, after a short
time browsing through our selection of beech worktops, with their delicate
blend of light and natural colours, they are often swayed. A beech worktop is a widely popular choice for those who are
looking to add some natural brightness and life to their kitchen, with its
naturally golden hue it is a guaranteed eyecatcher which still remains elegant
and timeless. Here at House of Worktops we believe it is our responsibility as a provider of quality wooden surfaces to
capture the natural strength, durability and beauty of beech timber and put it
into every one of the surfaces and worktops which we create when using it.
Where does the beech come from?
of Worktops we source from the steep mountainsides of Europe’s woodlands.
In such harsh and challenging weather conditions, the wood must develop to be
extremely resilient and strong. This resilience and strength is reflected in
the integrity of the beech which we use here at House of Worktops. As the beech timber (technically named ‘fagus
sylvatica’) is subjected to challenging and harsh weather conditions throughout
the winter months on the slopes of Europe’s mountains, the internal stress
causes the wood to grow into something which is far denser and more solid than
other beech which is grown elsewhere. This is why we only source our beech timber from such locations, as a
means of ensuring that each of our customers get an end product, which is not
only naturally beautiful and attractive, but also dense and solid enough to be
a functional worktop surface.
How to decide on the best beech worktop
At House of Worktops, we understand that the wood which you choose for your kitchen plays a massive part in the overall aesthetics of the room which it is in, and that one does not work without the other. As such, we recognise that choosing the right beech wood for a custom made worktop can be a challenge at times. In response to this, we offer our customers sample pieces of the various beech timber which we offer. This lets them see how the wood will look under their kitchen light, which will accurately represent how the finished product will look, so they truly get the best all-round service that they can.
