If you think wood countertops are only an option for a country-style kitchen, you really need to think again. Today’s sleek styles make wood countertops a great addition to any style of kitchen, including an ultra-modern one. Whether you go with wood countertops throughout the kitchen or just for one area, you will be amazed at the results.
All too often, people imagine a tattered butcher-block when they think about wood countertops. They also envision the hassles of maintaining it. What you might not realize is that wood countertops can have a high sheen and look nothing like a typical cutting board. The grain of wood is breathtaking, and the maintenance for wood countertops is not terribly involved. Furthermore, should your wood countertops suffer some damage, it is simple enough to sand them down to bring them back to their original splendor. You cannot do that with most veneered countertop products!
With so many different types of wood and stains, you can get exactly the look you are going for with wood countertops. Get a rich, dark wood to offset light-coloured cabinetry, or do it the opposite way with light wood and darker cabinetry. Tie everything together with great hardware and accessories, and you can have the kitchen of your dreams!
