Solid wood table tops
It doesn’t matter if you’re remodelling your existing kitchen or creating a complete new project. The worktop is an integral part of any kitchen and has a significant impact on its design and functionality. There are many different material solutions available on the market today to suit all tastes and applications. It all depends on your own wishes and financial possibilities. Quality plays a big role in the difference between worktop materials, which is also one of the main factors influencing their price. At Scandinavian Kitchens, we prefer and work with reliable companies that offer high-quality products at affordable prices.
Solid wood worktops fit into any kitchen design and interior. They give the kitchen an exclusive and richly natural feel. Wood works perfectly with any type of material, be it lux, acrylic, polygloss, painted MDF or glass. It also works elegantly in combination with stainless steel – this style of appliance can serve as one of the accents in your kitchen design. Wood has always been a popular material for kitchen interior design and is unlikely to lose its popularity any time soon. Today, the trend towards using as many natural materials as possible in interiors is becoming increasingly popular. Solid wood worktops are common in Scandinavian design kitchens because they stand out so well against the light, white tones that are so characteristic of them. Solid oak and cherry are the most commonly used boards, which can be tinted in your favourite shades. As wood is considered an exclusive material for kitchen interior design, it also comes at a price, which is not cheap. A solid wood worktop can cost up to 2 times more than other worktop alternatives. Wood has a number of positive qualities: it is long-lasting, can be easily renewed, and is easy to maintain and clean. But there are downsides too – because wood is a natural material, it is not as resistant to external influences – it tends to crack, twist and shrink. It is also less resistant to moisture – oiled, waxed or varnished surfaces lose their protective functions over time, which can have a negative effect on the life of the wood surface. To avoid this, we recommend hiring professionals who are masters of their trade.
