So many options
You can use timber for various things within the kitchen. For example, it is the most common material for cabinets and cupboards. The carcass of these units and the doors can be wood. You can even have wood handles. In addition, you can have wooden flooring. Some people even opt for timbers for their worktops.
When you have timber in the kitchen you need to consider wear and tear. The heat, moisture, spills, food splatters, and grease can all cause problems. You need to be proactive with cleaning and maintaining everything. This will make it last longer and look great. Just take care when you are wiping the surfaces; use soft cloths that won’t damage the wood.
The worktops are the hardest thing to maintain. You’ll use them often and they are the easiest to damage. For example if you cut or chop something directly on the surface you can scratch and scar it. This could get through the protective coating and expose the more delicate wood beneath. Instead, use a chopping board. In addition, wipe up food and spills quickly so they don’t sit on the surface for a long time. This can prevent stains. Also, never place a hot pan or baking tray directly on the worktop.
In some cases you will need to refinish timber worktops. You may need to re-oil them after installation and periodically after this. Take care with the oil, only using a little at a time, and give it enough time to dry. If you spot a water mark or stain, you can sand and then oil this area to get rid of the flaw.
