Are you living with dingy, cracked or out-of-date countertops? New wood kitchen countertops will bring add life to your old kitchen while also adding value to your home overall.
Why Choose Wood Kitchen Countertops?
Our clients often ask, “What makes wood better than other countertops?” Some of wood’s advantages over other countertop materials include:
- Ease of cleaning
- Various customization options
- Fade resistance
- Increases home value
In addition to these benefits, wood is always in style. Redecorating is also easy when you have wood countertops.
How to Choose the Best Countertop for You
At Maryland Wood Countertops, you can choose your wood construction style for your countertops. We also have many wood design options to meet your needs. The construction styles for countertops are:
We craft solid slabs from the width of a tree. If you want the most dramatic and impressive look for your countertops, a solid slab can be perfect for your kitchen.
Premium wide grain is a classic choice for kitchen countertops and tables. While it’s a relatively inexpensive construction style, you’ll lose nothing in terms of resilience, beauty and style. The look of multiple planks will add visual interest to your kitchen, as you’ll gain variations in color, grain and markings.
Edge grain butcher block is the way to go if you want to prepare food directly on your countertop. We build our popular edge grain butcher block with long strips of wood. Your knife or cleaver blade will cut into the strips of wood, preserving the edge.
Our checkerboard end grain butcher block is becoming trendy in the Maryland area. We’ve built vanities and tables in this style, using walnut sapwood and heartwood for color contrast.
You can prepare food on end grain butcher block. However, be aware that your blades will bounce and dull faster than with edge grain. Cut marks will be much more visible.
Have you always wanted a kitchen island for an additional eating area? A slab is perfect for an island countertop. Premium wide plank also makes a beautiful traditional island surface.
An edge grain butcher block island is also popular. With this option, you gain extra eating space and a convenient food preparation surface.
Waste holes and sinks provide a nice touch to kitchen islands. They make preparing meals and cleaning up after quick and simple.
Wood kitchen countertops make working and eating in your kitchen a pleasure. Wood enhances dark kitchens and adds warmth to kitchens with stainless steel. It also goes a long way in improving the look and value in your home.
