Character Rich Solid Worktop


If you’re planning a new look for your kitchen, a solid wood worktop is a great item to have on your shortlist. A real investment piece, solid wood worktops raise your kitchen game in so many different ways. But many people reject this option because they believe that something so character rich will cost them an arm and a leg. This is a real shame because it simply isn’t the case.

If you’re looking for character rich solid wood worktops, you’re in the right place. At Wood and Beyond we have a great stock to choose from that won’t break the bank.

When seeking character, a good option is to choose a rustic wood rather than a prime solution.

You can see our whole range of rustic solid wood worktops here. You will see when you look down the page, that there are either butcher block or full stave options to choose from, both of which are oozing with character.

The great thing about rustic wood is that it has a real abundance of colour variation, sapwood and knots, which means that no two pieces are ever exactly the same. In a worktop, this gives a real feeling of interest, providing a real richness for your kitchen that other materials simply don’t provide.

At the time of writing this article we have a number of rustic solid wood worktop options in stock in a variety of lengths. Just by means of example, you could choose:

Rustic beech

This rustic beech worktop is butchers block style and comes in a 38mm by 620mm by 3 metre length. Its light, natural colour means that it’ll flood even the smallest, gloomiest of kitchens with light and provide an impression of space. Particularly attractive when combined with black, white or bright coloured cupboard doors and accessories, even by simply changing your worktop to this one, you’ll get a whole new, fresh feel to your kitchen.

Butchers block oak

Another extremely characterful option is these rustic oak butchers block worktops. Currently available in 6 different dimensions, this is arguably one of our most popular worktop options ever. When you choose this solution, you can opt for 38 or 40mm thick; 620, 650 or 750mm wide and 2, 3 or 4 metre lengths. A really natural, almost mushroomy colour, the interest in this worktop will transform even the most boring kitchen into a cheffy, social haven. A real top quality worktop at a true bargain basement price, this option should not be ignored if you’re serious about a long term investment.

Full stave oak

Full stave oak worktops really are the crème de la crème of kitchen solutions and this rustic range won’t disappoint. Currently available in 38mm thick by 620, 750 and even 950mm solutions, you can choose lengths of 2, 2.5, 2.95 or 3 metre lengths. When you choose this option, you get the full beauty of the wood in all its glory, every time.

What a full stave oak option gives you that butchers block doesn’t is the full width of a plank to enjoy. Typically featuring 5 or 6 planks in each worktop, the grain of the wood shines through beautifully in the worktop in each case.

No matter what your plans are for your kitchen, there’s almost sure to be a wooden worktop that suits your vision.
