When planning out a kitchen remodel, think about adding custom wood countertops to your home. Going custom is a smart choice because you’ll have complete control over what you’re getting. With mass-produced wood countertops, you’ll typically get low-grade, generic wood design options. Going with a custom-made piece puts you in charge of the design process and allows you to receive premium-quality countertops.
Custom wood countertops:
- Instantly beautify your home
- Are the strongest and most durable surface option
- Are easy to clean
- Help your kitchen be a quieter place
- Provide you with a place to cut and prepare foods
- Offer an environmentally responsible choice
- Can be renewed instead of thrown away
How Wood Countertops Add to Your Kitchen Remodel
Using wood countertops for your kitchen remodel will enhance your home’s appearance as soon as they’re installed. No matter what wood species you choose, a wood countertop automatically adds warmth and style. Wood is a material that can match just about anything, so it will be sure to go with your appliances, flooring, and wall color.
Strong and Durable
People choose wood because of its strength and durability. A reclaimed wood kitchen island or countertop will bring a one-of-a-kind look to your property. The wood’s strength will allow it to hold heavy objects. You can also find shock-resistant wood like hickory or ash.
A Clean Kitchen is Important
Wood is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, and it’s also easy to keep clean. Just use a gentle cleanser or a natural product to wipe off your countertop or island.
Can Help Your Kitchen to be Quieter
Wood absorbs sound. That means that you can place dishes, pots, and glasses down on it without a loud clanging sound. When you want your kitchen to be quieter and more peaceful, adding wood countertops can make a huge difference in the way your kitchen handles sound.
Prepare Food on Wood Countertops
If you have edge or end grain countertops, you can feel good about using a knife to cut and chop foods directly on top of them. A butcher block top offers a viable cutting surface. We can also add a food-safe finish to ensure you can safely prepare meats and vegetables right on your countertops with ease.
A Greener Kitchen Remodel Option
Wood countertops can be a great choice for the environment, especially when you buy them from builders who use sustainably grown trees. Since we reuse wood instead of cutting down new trees, reclaimed wood is an environmentally friendly choice. By choosing a green option for your kitchen, you can feel like you are doing your part to help the planet.
Easy to Renew
If you want countertops that can be renewed instead of replaced, wood is the best building material option. Unlike granite or marble, you can sand it down and refinish wood to remove scratches, dents and other imperfections.
