The Luxury of Timber Slabs
If you are considering remodeling your kitchen, then you may want to consider the luxurious look of using fine timber slabs for your benchtops, food preparation areas, stools and even the tables and chairs.
The reason is that you can make your home have a modern look, with a natural and real wood finish that can be high gloss that will make your kitchen shiny and resists fading over time.
This has a great advantage over using veneer wood tops. Since those types of bench tops are only intended to look like wood, they will not last as long. Veneer tops can peel, fade, or just start to look old over time. Instead, if you are considering going for a wooden look in your kitchen, you should use timber slabs. Timber slabs are made from real timber, which means that they will not peel and are resistant to fading. Additionally, the timber slabs can be stained or glossed, which allows you to blend them to the look and feel for your kitchen.
Try to select kiln dried timber slabs instead of air-dried ones. Kiln dried timber is more stable. It also kills any insects, worms, fungus, or bacteria that may be in timber prior to processing. Lastly, kiln dried timber is less likely to warp because it has a lower moisture content than regular timber.
