Wood countertops continue to be a favorite choice for new homes and remodeled for a variety of reasons. Number one reason is most likely the natural beauty of wood. Wood gives your kitchen a warmth that other products cannot match. The many choices of types of wood, stain and finish colors allow a homeowner to have a custom look. You can even get recycled material for a “green” countertop.

Some of the considerations to bear in mind is the care and upkeep of your wood countertop. Properly sealed and regularly treated with oil or protectant your wood countertop will stay attractive and sanitary.
