As one of the primary rooms in the home, the kitchen plays host to family meals, mid-night snacking and festive celebrations meaning that the space needs to be functional yet presentable to cater for the family.
The kitchen is a busy space all year round. According to a 2017 survey by London Cleaning System that looked at 20 typical household chores, the average Brit spends 253 minutes per week in the kitchen cooking meals, which equates to 219 hours per year.
With us spending this amount of time in the kitchen, it is no surprise that the worktops are put to the test as they bear the brunt of spillages, scratches, burn marks and water damage, leaving them looking dull and tired after a period of time. Whether your worktop is made of granite, marble, wood, laminate, glass or stainless steel, you need to protect the surface in one way or another to ensure that it remains looking as beautiful as the day it was installed.
It’s no surprise that we favour wooden worktops, and why wouldn’t we? Wooden countertops are strong and durable, they are unique as no two pieces of wood are the same, they are always on trend and can match the style of your kitchen – whether it’s rustic or modern and they get better with age.
To ensure your wooden worktop is looking its best in time for Christmas and for many years to come, it is important to apply a high-quality finish to protect the surface and enhance the wood’s natural beauty.
Our TopOil which consists of natural plant oils and waxes, is food safe and is water-repellent and chemical resistant, making it an ideal choice for kitchen worktops where water damage and spillages are inevitable. The finish is available in seven different shades, ensuring there is a finish to complement all decors.
Two to three coats of TopOil (depending on the wood species of your worktop) will allow you to enjoy your stunning wooden worktops for many years to come.
