Timber benchtops are a popular choice in kitchens because they offer a hygienic surface and complement almost any decorating style. They pair well with light cabinetry for a Scandi-inspired look or with darker shades for a country aesthetic.

Bunnings Timber Benchtop
There are many different types of materials to choose from for kitchen benchtops, but timber remains one of the most popular. Not only does it offer a durable and hygienic surface, but its natural appearance can add warmth to any kitchen. AUSKstone specialises in designing and manufacturing custom Bunnings timber benchtop to suit any style of kitchen. Choosing a new kitchen benchtop is a big decision and the process can be confusing. However, there are a few tips that will help you make the right choice for your home. Firstly, measure the length and width of your existing benchtop before purchasing a new one. You can then compare this to the specifications of your chosen product to ensure that it will fit correctly.
If you are replacing your kitchen benchtop, consider ordering a ‘Cut to Measure’ benchtop. This option allows you to purchase a benchtop at the same thickness as your current unit and makes installation much easier. You can find a range of cut-to-measure products at Bunnings, including ECOply 2400x 1200x 19mm CD Structural Plywood and Carter Holt Harvey FORMrite 2400x 600x 25mm F14 Formply. Alternatively, you can also opt for a 2200x 600x 26mm Acacia Solid Oiled Hardwood Project Panel.
Types Of Timber Benchtop
Timber bench tops are available in a wide range of timber species and finishes. Timbers such as Jarrah, Oak, Victorian Ash and Blackbutt are all popular choices in Australia. These timbers offer varying aesthetic qualities, such as grain and colour. They also have different characteristics, such as durability and weather resistance. The best option for your kitchen will depend on your needs and your budget. Solid timber is usually less expensive than quartz or stone but more expensive than laminate options. The cost of timber benchtops will also depend on the design and size you choose, as well as whether or not it is custom made.
Timber benchtops require ongoing maintenance to withstand the elements. They should be regularly cleaned to remove dirt, stains and water damage. A protective finish should also be applied to the surface to protect it from moisture and harmful UV rays. Choosing a polyurethane finish creates a glossy, durable surface that requires less regular recoating than an oiled timber benchtop. Alternatively, you can use an oil to achieve a matte finish that will look more natural and require more frequent reapplication. No matter what type of timber you choose, it is important to ensure that your benchtops are properly sanded and sealed to prevent cracking.
Timber Slabs Sydney
Whether it’s a benchtop lovingly made from jarrah salvaged from your grandfather’s Queensland property or a fresh, modern Timber Slabs Sydney featuring solid ash or Tasmanian oak, timber is a classic choice for those who love a natural, earthy look in the home. It’s easy to work with and comes in a range of colours and finishes. While many renovators choose to clad their kitchens in a more durable material such as stone, laminate and concrete, a well-made wooden top can be just as visually appealing and withstand a lot of wear and tear. Moreover, timber is often less expensive than other materials.
