The worktops of your kitchen provide the finishing touches to the aesthetic, and depending on the material you choose, can really make an impact on the room. There are a number of good material choices available for kitchen worktops, but wood is an elegant and luxurious material that can increase the appeal, and property value, of your home.
Why Choose Wood?
Wood is an attractive material, bringing a touch of natural beauty indoors, and is entirely unique, with each piece of wood having an individual grain pattern. Compared to other materials, wood ages well, becoming a richer and deeper colour over time. Also, by choosing a solid wooden worktop, you’ll find that any surface damages – scratches, chips, stains etc – are much easier to repair than some of the denser materials as the top layer can be buffed up to look as good as new in no time. Some people worry that because wood is porous, the surface will stain and warp with excessive moisture, however the wood is treated with oils to prevent this from happening. Wood is a particularly good material for use in the kitchen as it is naturally resistant to bacteria, making it a hygienic surface for food preparation.
It is best to choose a joinery service that can offer you a bespoke fitting and high-quality wood; this increases the longevity of the worktop and a good quality wood can last a lifetime. Wood is a very inexpensive material, so you’ll find that using a joinery service is much more affordable than you would first believe, and trained joiners will ensure that your worktops are treated with the utmost professionalism and care. The personal attention by a trained carpenter means that your worktop will be created and fitted to a much higher standard than a bog-standard piece, and the smooth lines they create will make your room feel even more luxurious. A professional joinery service will also be able to offer advice and guidance on the best kind of wood for your project, the placement of kitchen appliances and other tips to make the most out of your kitchen.
