Although wooden worktops are not as popular as granite or quartz worktops, they are naturally hygienic as they have antibacterial properties, lend a homely feel to the kitchen, look good with almost every kitchen style and no two surfaces are the same. Apollo Wood worktops come in a wide variety of choices and there is something in their line for every modern or traditional kitchen. Their versatility ensures that they are equally effective in traditional, modern or an urban industrial setting.
You can choose from 10 species of solid hardwood. Their differences in colour and grain ensure that you have a wide variety of options when selecting the best hardwood surface for your kitchen style. You get to choose from Cherry, Beech, European Walnut, Iroko, Maple, Oak, Sapelli, Teak, Tiger Walnut and Wenge wood.
All solid wood surfaces should be sealed before they are installed and we recommend using an oil based sealant for example Danish oil. This is designed to protect the surface of the wood as if it was a boat in water but the oil will also bring out and emphasize the natural grain and colour. If there are any spills, wipe them off immediately with a mild surface cleaner. It is advisable not to set heat pans directly on to the wood counter, so use worktop protectors whenever you can and when cutting vegetables or meat, use a cutting board. Yes wooden worktops are not as durable as granite but with a little bit of maintenance and care, these wood surfaces will last a lifetime. To bring the natural beauty and warmth of wood into your kitchen is truly worth the little more effort!
