The kitchen is one of the rooms of the house where we invest most economically and in desire and effort to make it look good. Surely because, once we have finished it, we will know that it will be a long-term investment. And there are many who make life in the kitchen, from breakfast, meals, school work with our kids, visits from friends around a cafe … The fact is that every day our kitchens have to be ready to give us the service we need. Especially the reclaimed wood countertops is one of the parts of the kitchen that we repair the most when choosing your design and style.
If you go crazy with the rustic details and have always dreamed of a family kitchen, of those that we see in the movies of ‘love and luxury’ that we all like so much, then choosing oak wood will be the key. The reclaimed wood countertops gives a rustic, modern and organic appearance, it fits with any decorative style, but above all it is very common in the Scandinavian style and its maintenance is simple, however, in the wood with humidity and with the passage of time appear imperfections, but these are the charm of this type of countertops. There are special varnishes to reduce the porosity of the wood and increase its resistance to friction and cuts.
Although we will always have to treat it with special care, since the wood does not take particularly well with the water and its maintenance is delicate. Within the range of reclaimed wood countertops we can opt for plywood, this material brings style and sophistication to the kitchen. Granite is another highly resistant natural material that has been used since time immemorial in the design of kitchens. The granite is very hard and resistant so it is very difficult to scratch, it resists heat and it is very easy to clean, without a doubt, one of the most suffered materials.
