Works across all kitchen styles but especially in traditional shaker kitchens.
If hardwoods are properly oiled and maintained they will last for years. Being a natural timber, they are not scratch or stain resistant and are not heat proof. There is an element of repairability though as scratches can be sanded out.
A good quality hardwood worktop will be pressure treated, meaning that it only needs to be lightly sanded and oiled once or twice a year. Lower quality timber worktops may need oiling as often as once a month. Avoid direct exposure to heat and prevent prolonged soaking around the sink and tap area. Wipe up spills instantly to avoid staining.
