Timber is used less these days as the sole material in a kitchen. However, as a feature material it is making a resurgence. Natural, beautiful and full of character, timber gives a warmth and inviting feel to any kitchen. With numerous species of timber available plus your choice of stain, a bespoke benchtop is easily accessible; alternatively, you can try to compliment existing timber in your home.
Not as durable as other finishes available, at least when nicks and scratches do occur they give a timber benchtop character, rather than make it look damaged.
