  • Choosing Solid Wood Worktop Thickness

    When you are searching for a solid wood worktop, one of the questions you’re likely to face is what thickness of worktop would work best for your kitchen. While the length and width of your worktop is likely to be determined by basic things like the size of your kitchen together with whether or not you want to overhang standard size appliances, or if you have super-sized appliances, how you’re going to cater for those. That said, choosing the right thickness of worktop isn’t always determined for you, so how do you choose? While there’s no right or wrong answer that works for everyone, in this blog post, we’d like to explore the things that are likely to impact most on which thickness you choose. Generally speaking, unless you op ... READ MORE >

  • How To Choose The Right Grade Of Solid Wood Worktop

    When it comes to buying solid wood worktops, the wood you choose will be graded into one of four categories: prime, select, natural or rustic. The category that wood is graded into depends on three things: the number and size of knots, the colour variation present in the wood and the amount of sap it contains. And it’s worth bearing in mind that while you can’t normally see sap; it’s there. As a general rule of thumb, the more uniform the colour, the smaller the knots and the lower the sap content, the higher the grade of wood and, not surprisingly, in most cases, the higher the price. That said, this grading system doesn’t necessarily mean that high grade wood is better than lower grade wood, which is what often makes this choice c ... READ MORE >

  • Why Square Edge Wood Flooring Is Worth The Effort

    As any regular reader of this blog will know, wood flooring boards come in three main edge styles: bevel, micro bevel and square. In a nutshell, beveled edge wood floor boards are floor boards that have a pronounced ‘v’ shape on each edge of the board; a micro beveled floor board has a significantly less pronounced ‘v’ and a square edge board has a perfectly perpendicular (at 90-degrees) edge. On a board that is beveled, it may be that the edges are sculpted or defined using a hand scraped effect to make the board look aged or worn, or the definition might be created uniformly by machine. Either way, this type of edge is highly visible throughout the floor and is ideally suited to a shabby chic or relaxed look. Micro beveled edges ... READ MORE >
