Mess often comes along with having a family, especially in areas like your kitchen where a lot of food is prepared and/or left on the worktops, which can cause worktops to be brimming with bacteria. However, solid wood worktops contain anti-bacterial properties, giving you a naturally hygienic surface. If you have a family this can come extremely in handy as you won’t have to be as worried about constantly scrubbing down your surfaces so your family don’t consume bacteria. If you do have any bacteria that’s still lingering, wood worktops are easy to wipe down.
With children running around the house the choice of furniture often needs careful considering, as when children are playing they can often be quite reckless, which means there shouldn’t really be any sharp corners on furniture that they could hurt themselves on. With our solid wood worktops, you can arrange for their design to have curved edges, helping to make your kitchen the family-friendly kitchen that you have in mind.
Family homes tend to see a lot of wear and tear, which is why solid wood worktops are ideal for a family kitchen.
