Mistral's Kitchen Worktop Range
Kitchen Worktop Fitters have been installing solid wood kitchen worktops for many years. Wood being a natural resource, care and consideration should be taken before installing a solid wood kitchen worktop.
Wooden kitchen worktops give a timeless look as well as a contemporary feel. Hardwood has antibacterial qualities, which makes it ideal for kitchen worktops and chopping boards.
After installation our fitters can oil or varnish your wooden worktop to ensure it has the best possible protection with years of enjoyment.
Please remember that timber used for wooden kitchen worktops should be sourced from well managed forests.
You should also note solid wood worktops may contain knots, natural colour variation and drying splits as normal features. This gives the unique qualities of wooden worktops compared to laminate worktops.
As a natural resource, wood can be effected by heat and humidity. Your kitchen worktop can lose and gain moisture before and after installation. Caring for your wooden worktop is important as wood expands in warm weather or high humidity and contracts during colder months or low humidity. When these extreme weather patterns happen wood can bow or warp if not treated and maintained correctly.
We recommend that all worktops are oiled immediately upon delivery from your supplier. Installation should be carried out as soon as possible after delivery. However if the wooden worktop is not ready to fit straightaway, please ensure that you have oiled the worktop and place back in its original pacakging.
Make sure the storage area is indoors, has a stable humidity, and will not be subject to extreme temperatures. Fresh plasterwork should be allowed to dry for a minimum of 4-6 weeks before installing a solid wood worktop.
