Our Custom Wood Countertops
We’ve made countertops from nearly every wood you can imagine and in designs from rustic to contemporary. We even use reclaimed wood if the client requests it. If you can dream it for your kitchen, we’ll do our best to make your kitchen dreams come true with custom Alexandria wood countertops.
Wood is much more versatile than granite, marble or laminate. You can paint wooden countertops or sand and stain them a different color if you want to give your kitchen a new look. That’s what makes using wood so great. Granite countertops are difficult to remove. If you choose granite, you’ll be stuck with the colors for a long time.
Wood countertops are usually easy to repair. If you get a nick or crack in granite, you’ll probably have to live with it. Pot burns, knife cuts, pet scratches and even ink can be removed from wooden counters with a little simple sanding and re-staining. Custom Alexandria wood countertops are easy to live with. Most woods need very little maintenance other than routine cleaning with high-quality products and periodic re-oiling.
Walnut is probably our most popular wood for custom Alexandria wood countertops. Walnut can be stained to a dark shade like umber or a tawny medium-brown. If you want a warm wood countertop that’s dark but not too dark, we can use a handsome cinnamon color. For a country-style kitchen, a natural, light ashen gold walnut counter is perfect.
Oak is another in-demand wood for country or rustic kitchens. Oak is one of those woods with natural flaws that enhance its appearance when used as a countertop or kitchen island. Caramel-colored oak kitchen and bar countertops with the wood’s natural texture showing beneath the stain and glossy sealant are spectacular and sure to impress everyone who visits your home.
Mahogany is another of our popular woods for custom Alexandria wood countertops. Like oak, mahogany has an attractive, eye-catching natural texture that we like to show off with a stain that leaves it visible. Your mahogany counters can be the deep reddish color you expect, or they can be light sepia. Light mahogany looks perfect in a kitchen with white cabinets.
