Wood Kitchen Countertops provide a functional, warm work area in the kitchen. Wood Kitchen Countertops are constructed in flat grain (plank style) or edge grain (strips). The flat grain construction highlights the grain of the wood. The planks can vary in width from 4″ wide to 14″ wide and are hand selected to be the most uniform in appearance. Edge grain highlights the color of the wood countertop, and is often used as a chopping surface as well.

The most common types of kitchen countertop materials are granite, marble, quartz, and wood. Granite and Quartz have the reputation of being the hardest materials, ranking them among the most durable. Quartz is highly adaptable and available in many different colors. It is also scratch-resistant. Marble and wood have softer textures and offer a gentler feel.
Some of the most important factors to consider when choosing the kitchen countertop material are durability, cost, and appearance. The idea should be to try and achieve a balance among these factors – a material that fits your desired aesthetics, is durable enough for its intended purpose, and is cost-effective. For example, Quartz is more adaptable, heat- and scratch-resistant than granite, but is typically more expensive than granite. Granite is the hardest material, but can splinter just like wood. Wood offers a natural aesthetic feel, but requires more maintenance and care.
Each of these materials comes with its own pros and cons. In the end, it boils down to your needs, preferences, and budget size.
It’s important to use the right cleaning products for your kitchen countertops so they stay looking their best. You should never scrub or wipe them with anything that is tough, like bleach. Instead, use something gentle like dish soap and damp cloths (or sponges). Avoid using household cleaners that contain acids, alkalis, and other chemicals, as their harshness may degrade the sealer on your countertop.
Sealers function as protection from staining and bacteria for your countertop, and should be regularly applied as advised by your countertop professional.
The nature of your activities on these countertops also determines how long they will last. For instance, always make sure you use cutting boards and hot pads or trivets to protect any countertop surface from scratches and heat.
There are a few potential risks associated with certain types of kitchen countertops Austin remodeling companies offer. Natural products such as wood and stone, for instance, are relatively safe to use, however, they are porous and may harbor bacteria when not properly sealed. Some countertop materials have chemicals and carcinogens that can be harmful to humans after extended exposure to them.
The price of stone countertops can vary depending on factors such as where it is sourced, the rarity of the stone or specific colors, and how much effort goes into extraction.
An important part of the kitchen countertop installation process is to make sure you hire a professional. We do not recommend installing a countertop yourself. You could end up doing more harm than good, especially if you’re not experienced with construction work. Some kitchen countertop manufacturers in Austin require that installation be carried out by certified field technicians in order for the countertop to be covered by a warranty
