Why is Oil Coat Important for A Wooden Worktop

The kitchen of your house is undoubtedly the busiest places inside the house. The surfaces of the worktops inside that room are often used for a number of different purposes and are used quite frequently. Apart from preparing food, storing utensils, serving meals, those work tops are also ideal for enjoying a drink. All these processes done quite frequently on the kitchen worktop mean fast wear and tear of the worktop. That is why, regular maintenance process taken care of quite diligently and proper care is important to keep wooden worktop of the kitchen in perfect shape.


Being natural products, wood is natural to be exposed to some degree of discoloration, change, the first step of which is the color yellow. The color deepens with time. Hardwood offers a durable and great looking surface to work on, inside the kitchen. Beech wood is popular among the choices, mainly due to the features like being dense, odorless and strong enough not to wear fast. Beech worktops are often capable of withstanding greater pressure to resist chipping. Compared to other similar materials, solidwood worktops made of beech get lesser amount of mark on surfaces. Therefore, this material is perfect for regular use.

Over the time, unlike other materials used in worktops, wood becomes richer and darker in color that gives an ever changing character to the room. In case, the wooden worktop becomes dented or marked, it is possible removing the ugly mark by gently sanding that particular area that reveals new surface from underneath. The best care of the wooden worktop can be taken by using oil. This is the natural lubricant that is not only easy to apply but adds a water resistant finish to the element too. After absorption of oil the worktop gets oil penetrated into the wood fibers that long lasting protection can be assured. It is good to do the coating process every six months.


Due to over use, the kitchen worktop might be subject to heavy wear and tear. Therefore, it might be necessary to do a re-apply of the oil more often, at least after every six months. The maintenance process makes the worktops retain their ‘’sheen’’ and ensure the fact that it looks gorgeous for a longer period of time. The oil film on the worktops makes any spilt liquid to form small drops on its surface and run off like rain drops do on a newly polished car.
