Bamboo Bench tops The Better Alternative

Every household home deserves a spectacular bench top, but have you ever considered bamboo instead of the typical pricey granite or marble?

Between wooden bench tops and marble bench tops there is a common annoyance for both. Marble bench tops, although provide a classy look to a kitchen can be extremely cold, particularly in winter. Wooden bench tops although make a kitchen look cozy and warm can become easily marked and damaged by heat and heated products. However, bamboo bench tops provide the perfect balance between marble and wood. Warm in winter, cool in summer and undamaged by heat, they are the perfect choice for your kitchen.

Bamboo bench tops are highly cost effective, but that doesnt mean quality is substituted. Brighten up any dull kitchen with this natural product and create a spectacular looking kitchen. The nodes on the bamboo plank accentuate the bamboo stalk and will add a beautiful natural glow to your kitchen.

Besides the aesthetical benefits, bamboo bench tops are extremely practical, durable and strong. Save money on coasters and mats, as bamboo bench tops are able to withstand heat. Move any hot pan or directly from your stove to your bamboo bench top without leaving a single mark. As the actual bamboo plant is not affected by heat or cold; neither is its product. Even areas that experience constant water exposure such as the sink will not harm your bench top. Although not completely proof, bamboo bench tops are fairly able to withstand scratching as well.

As our bench tops come in solid raw bamboo planks to prevent damage via transport, simply seal with any clear varnish found in any hardware store. Once sealed if there is a large build up of scratches over time simply sand it down and re-varnish for a brand new looking bench top.

Our bench tops are also safe from warping and shrinking and would make a cost effective, stunning but practical edition to your kitchen.
