Why Wood Works for Countertops

There are a lot of options to consider when choosing a material for your kitchen countertops, from stainless steel to concrete to granite. However, one material that has recently seen a resurgence in popularity is wood.

Wood helps to provide a much warmer appearance than the cold look of stainless steel, and it gives off a more natural and rustic feel than other materials as well. Wood countertops are made from pieces of hardwood that are laminated together using glue in order to provide strength and durability.

Wood is a great option for other reasons as well. Wood is much more gentle on your dishware than other materials and will absorb some of the noise that kitchens tend to generate. Wood is also easy to repair – if your wood countertop is stained or dinged, you can simply refinish it. There are a ton of different types of wood you can use as well, providing a flexible look for your kitchen design.

If you are contemplating what type of material to use for your kitchen countertops, consider the benefits of wood. If you need wood for construction projects in Kansas City, contact us at Schutte Lumber today.
