Kitchens are one of the hardest rooms in the house to get right when it comes to choosing surfaces and furnishings. Not only is the kitchen now often seen as a sanctuary for many but it is also one of the rooms that needs to be most practical in the house, whilst at the same time, often being the room that can impress people most when the aesthetics are right.
Therefore, there are going to be many considerations to make when renovating or decorating a kitchen, and not only do you need to bear in mind how happy you are likely to be spending your time in the room and how much you can get done (those with the most practical and inviting kitchens are likely to cook more often and in turn are often more healthy than those with less practical kitchens), but you also need to bear in mind the effect your kitchen could have on the value of your home.
Wood is one of the best options for any kitchen, no matter what you want to achieve in terms of practicality and aesthetics. Solid oak worktops are available in all manner of different styles and can be treated to have any look you like, and any look that will suit your home.
Solid oak worktops can help you weigh up practicality and aesthetics perfectly. They may indeed be more prone to damage than certain other choices, but they will help make your home look far more impressive and far more inviting, and any damage that they do see is likely to be easy to repair yourself.
Oak worktops are also hygienic and very cost-effective, making oak worktops the top choice of many to create a kitchen that is extremely attractive and can still be as practical as you need it to be.
There will of course be other options available, but for balancing practicality and aesthetics, it will be hard to find anything that beats oak.
