Buyer's Guide to Wood Benchtops

to_Wood_Benchtops.jpgWooden benchtops are crucial if you want to make your kitchen workspace more functional and effective for use. Wood has always been one of the preferred materials for benchtops as it lends solidity and class to any kitchen. With regular maintenance, wooden benchtops give you high quality of service for many years. When you plan to buy wooden benchtops, you should take special care to choose products which are durable, solid and ramp up the style quotient. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind while purchasing wooden benchtops for your kitchen so as to guarantee superior quality of service. Here are a few pertinent pointers.

Choice of Material

First of all, it is very important that you choose the right kind of wood for your benchtop. Benchtops come in many different kinds of wood- some of these are better for high-humidity environments and heavy use while others are more suited to dry areas and light use. Assess your requirements diligently and choose your material wisely. Woods like Merbau, Spotted Gum, Rose Gum, Blue Gum, Blackbutt and Australian Jarrah can be perfect for kitchen benchtops.


Before purchasing, inspect the finish on your wooden benchtops closely. Wooden benchtops are likely to be used heavily and can be susceptible to exposure to the elements, moisture and spills. To ensure a long life, wooden benchtops need to be specially finished in a way that the surface is completely sealed and no air or moisture reaches the wood.


To make sure that your wooden benchtops do not stand out, think about the overall theme and mood of your kitchen décor and purchase those designs of wooden benchtops which fit in well with the overall scheme of things. You can use your benchtops to further enhance the style quotient and add to your décor in a constructive way.
