Many homeowners are interested in having natural wood countertops. A wooden surface has lots of great features and advantages, but before you decide if it’s right for your home, there are several things to think about. By the end of this article, hopefully, you’ll have a better understanding of whether or not a wood countertop is something that would work well for you and your family.
Let´s first, take a look at the main benefits of having a wood countertop
For example: how do you plan on using your new countertop? Will you be chopping food directly on the wood surface (similar to a butcher block)? Or will you use a cutting board for food prep? If chopping directly on the countertop is your choice, then we recommend edge grain or end grain construction. This way, the surface will be more durable and long-lasting. Now, If you want to maintain your countertop’s good condition, avoid cutting food directly on the surface. Face grain construction will save you time and money. Plus, the wood grain pattern will be more prominently displayed than with edge or end grain tops.
Also, are you willing to put in the effort of giving your countertop regular maintenance? What about cleaning it up quickly after something spills to avoid future stains? These are the things you need to take into consideration before moving forward with a wood countertop.
