What kind of laminated benchtops do you offer?
We offer a range of sustainably sourced benchtops that are designed to provide a cost-effective, long-lasting solution that can withstand the daily grind that benchtops are subjected to. Some of the most common materials that we sell include Tasmanian Oak / Victorian Ash hardwood and Merbau.
- Tasmanian Oak / Victorian Ash
Tasmanian Oak and Victorian Ash are trade names for the most common species of hardwood grown locally and sustainability in southern Australia. Species include Alpine Ash and Mountain Ash in along with Stringybark and Australian Oak. They are all eucalypt hardwoods and are light in colour varying from straw to reddish brown with shades of pink. They are excellent for staining allowing you to match other timbers and decor.
Merbau is an excellent material for benchtops due to its durability and natural beauty. This hardwood is resistant to both rot and insect damage, making it a great choice for high-use areas like kitchens. Additionally, merbau’s rich colour and grain patterns can add warmth and character to any space. When properly sealed, a merbau benchtop can last for many years with minimal upkeep.
- Red Gum
Red Gum is a good material for bench tops because it is very hard and dense. It has a high natural lustre and because of its density it does not require a sealer. Additionally, red gum is very easy to clean and maintain. It is also heat resistant, making it ideal for use in kitchens.
What size are your hardwood benchtops?
Our range of hardwood bench tops are 620mm wide and 33 mm thick whereas the Merbau are 640mm wide and 30mm thick subject to suppliers.
Which edge profiles can you provide?
We supply workable timber options, which means that our kitchen benchtops can be shaped into different edge profiles, from square to pencil round to 90° types, by you or your installer. Our staff can walk you through the options that can be applied to each hardwood. So let our team create a custom kitchen benchtop to suit your needs.
How long do kitchen benchtops last for?
There is no definitive answer to how long kitchen benchtops will last for. However, with proper care and maintenance, your benchtop can last for many years. Here are a few tips to help you prolong the life of your kitchen benchtop:
- Avoid placing hot pans or pots directly on the surface of the benchtop. Use a trivet or potholder instead.
- Wipe up spills immediately.
- Use cutting boards when chopping food. People often think that a wooden benchtop is a license to cut your food on any surface – this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you treat your benchtop as a cutting board, you can be sure that it is going to deteriorate quickly.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on the bench top. Stick to mild soaps and warm water instead.
With proper care, your kitchen benchtop can last for many years to come. Enjoy your new kitchen and make it a space that you love!
