Laminate and solid kitchen worktops become marked and damaged as time progresses. However, the beautiful thing about wood is that the material becomes richer and deeper, especially when you treat it properly. You can sand away scratches and other flaws. In addition, with the right oil, you can restore the worktop to its previous glory.
The number one rule when it comes to oiling wooden worktops is no varnish. The last thing you want on the surface is anything that may chip or crack. Damaged surfaces are home to multitudes of bacteria. Oil is the best option here. You should give hardwood worktops three thin coats of protective wood oil at minimum prior to installation. In addition to the top, you need to treat all the sides.
Working the oil in
Work your oil into the kitchen worktop in the grain’s direction with a lint-free cloth and not a brush. The end-grain of those worktops close to the sink is in danger of absorbing water. Introduce further coats in heavy use sections and around the taps.
Wood soaks up oil at different speeds in each area. Let ten minutes pass and then go over the whole surface again. If there’s any oil that’s just sitting around, be sure to rub it in.
At Wood & Wisdom, our bespoke kitchens differ immensely from factory-made contemporary designs. We make every component from planks of wood. This includes carcass panels, worktops, and doors. The result of our efforts is a masterpiece of kitchen design.
