The kitchen is not the only place where wood worktops can be used. It is a very popular solution for making wood shelves, tables, benches, bar tops, desktops and more. Before the solid wood worktops is fitted, it needs to be treated to ensure long life, durability and less maintenance. We recommend that all real wood worktops are treated with Danish Worktop Oilat least 3 times on both the top and bottom. It is essential that all solid wood worktops receive the correct amount of treatment. Their exposed edges can be decorated in a manner ranging from plane to very chunky profiles once they are fitted. The wooden worktops can be fabricated to accommodate sink, hob, dispensers, sockets, drain boards or even a granite slate for a more modern and stylish look, especially in a contrast between black granite tile and with the golden color of an oak worktops. As the wooden worktops are made from a wide range of wood types, they may vary in price. Normally the most affordable worktops are the oak worktops and beech worktops with butcher block type of manufacturing, as they are the most commonly used and easy to source. Normally the worktops made from full planks are more expensive, because of the higher price of the raw material prior manufacturing. The exotic types of wood can also be quite pricey, because they are rare and difficult to source, especially wenge worktops and zebrano worktops.
All wooden worktops in our range are made from hardwood. As you can tell by the name, the hardwood worktops are much harder than the softwood ones and have more complex structure, even though all hardwood worktops have their own characteristics and they vary in density and weight. One of the most popular types - Oak Worktops have great strength and hardness and beautiful grain marks. The oak is also very resistant to insect attacks, because of its tannin content. The oak worktops are a good example of achieving a beautiful finish and durability at a reasonable cost.
Another example of a nice looking and very durable kitchen is the iroko worktop. Initially the iroko is yellow, but darkens very quick to a richer brown colour over time. Iroko worktop is hard wearing and durable and does not require regular treatment, because it has a very high content of natural oils. Probably the most attractive worktops for our customers are the different variations of walnut worktops. The region of harvesting walnut lumber vary from California to Europe and China, we have selected 3 variations of walnut worktops.European walnut worktops, simply called walnut worktops, american walnut worktops or also known as black american walnut worktop and African walnut worktops popular as Tiger Walnut Worktops, because of the dark stripes. All walnut worktops are very durable and have similar characteristics, but slightly differ in colour. American walnut worktops are very uniform in colour with rich dark chocolate brown tones. European walnut worktops have more colour variation, but with a generally dark appearance.
The most distinctive patterns in grain, you can see in wenge worktops and zebrano worktops. They are a very heavy and dense wood type. Wenge is very dark in color.
