WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Homeowners have many options for their kitchen remodeling projects. Granite, marble, Caesarstone, Cambria and others. But one of the newer, exciting choices is hardwood countertops, which have become increasingly popular because of their range of styles, materials, food preparation safety and durability.
Kitchen & Bath Source in White Plains carries The Grothouse Lumber Company line of countertops, and homeowners looking to update their kitchens will love the options.
Grothouse offers over 60 types of lumber with custom stain matching that comes with a lifetime warranty. Grothouse countertops can be manufactured in a wide variety of woods and patterns for exceptional design and flexibility. Homeowners can customize the color, stain and grain orientation to their preference. Grothouse, for instance, offers checkerboards, borders, stripes and even laser engraved pictures and logos.
Walnut wood countertops are among the most popular from Grothouse, while Wenge is another excellent source for homeowners seeking a darker surface. The company’s end grain countertop is a classic butcher block, won’t dull knives and is self-healing for hiding knife marks.
Grothouse also offers a Durata finish, which is completely waterproof and chemical resistant. Durata does not require ongoing maintenance and is FDA approved for indirect exposure. Although chopping should be avoided, the finish is not affected by lacquer thinner, ammonia, red wine, vinegar, oil, ketchup, mustard, bleach or soaps. Wood countertops are also one of the most effective antibacterial surfaces for home kitchens. The naturally occurring anti-microbial substances in the wood grain provide this sanitary benefit.
