Unique and Beautiful
One of the biggest criticisms of wooden worktops is their hygiene properties due to wood not being impervious to water. Whilst it is true that you do need to take care to properly seal and sterilise your wooden worktops, studies have shown that although bacteria may be absorbed into the wood grain, they do not normally multiply and will eventually die. Furthermore, the almost seamless joints minimise crevices for germs to accumulate. Top quality timber worktops are strong and very resilient and if cared for properly they can last a lifetime. Wood is hard-wearing, resistant to impact and scratches can be sanded out.
