Solid Wood Worktops

A solid wood kitchen worktop will give you a life times pleasure as you watch the wood mellow and mature with time. Easy to maintain and stunning in appearance natural wood worktops lend themselves to traditional kitchens and allow for Belfast and under counter mounted sinks.

As the name suggests solid wood worktops are made from solid wood allowing woods natural splendour and lustre to your kitchen.
Over time other kitchen worktop surfaces may age over time with wear and tear. However with time your solid wood worktop will gain character as it becomes richer and deeper in colour. Marks and scuffs can be sanded out, under mounted sinks can be fitted.
The best finish for a solid wood worktop is oil. Oil adds depth and character to the wood and is straight forward to apply and easy to resurface when the time comes giving you peace of mind and a life time of service from your worktop.


Wooden countertops come in a variety of designs ranging from butcher block to joined planks to single wide stave. Wood is considered to be the most eco-friendly option when it comes to choosing a kitchen worktop as it is a renewable resource.

A solid wood worktop, fitted by Midland Worktop Fitters, has lots of installation possibilities such as:

  • Under mounted sinks
  • Drainage grooves
  • Curved corners
  • Matching end panels
  • Hot rods for placing hot pans and plates
  • Belfast sink cut outs

Note: solid wood worktops must be oiled according the manufacturer’s instructions.

Solid wood worktops have the benefit of being solid all the way through however, as with other worktop surfaces, we strongly recommended the use of chopping boards to prolong its life as sharp blades can mark the surface and very hot pans placed straight on to the worktop can leave scorch marks.

Another consideration when choosing a work surface is your choice of sink. Solid wood worktops are ideal for under mounted sinks or Belfast sinks which are not suitable for laminate worktops.
