Where to Purchase Wood Kitchen Countertops

Acacia Hardwood Counters for Beauty, Durability and Cost

For the last number of years kitchen and bathroom counters made of granite have been all the rage. And justly so. While not inexpensive, they are attractive and long lasting. The many unique patterns available in this hard, cold product can add a certain zing to your room. But we've noticed recently that many renovators and builders are looking to acacia hardwood counters as significant design features in the homes they’re building or renovating. Wood is more forgiving and easier to work with than granite. And the range of colours and grains you’ll find in wood are equivalent to the variety of granite patterns you can find. And you’ll be pleased and surprised with the attractive pricing. So, let’s consider an acacia hardwood counter for your kitchen.

First of all, let's look at the strengths of acacia hardwood kitchen countertops:

  • Hardwood counters are popular in new builds and renovations as acacia hardwood is easy to work with
  • They are attractive, with a natural beauty, and interesting grains that enhance a kitchen or bathroom. Acacia countertops are also very low maintenance.
  • Acacia hard wood kitchen countertops add a warmth unmatched by any other material.
  • These countertops can be stained in a variety of fashions to give your kitchen a customized appearance.
  • Acacia hardwood works with all design styles, Mediterranean, Traditional, Modern, Country and many other styles of decor as well.
  • In this day of environmental interests, your wood kitchen countertops can even be re-purposed.
  • Hardwood counters provide a good work surface. Treated properly, and cared for, they are water proof and will provide many years of service.
  • Acacia hardwood kitchen countertops are safe for food preparation and approved for contact with any foodstuffs.

What Do We Know About Acacia Hardwood?

Acacia hardwood comes from trees that grow in Australia, Vietnam and other Asian destinations. For the most part, this tough but attractive wood is grown and harvested in a sustainable manner under the watchful eye of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). They want to have healthy and abundant trees in the years to come to support the lumbering industry. Surprisingly enough, this flowering tree is part of the pea family.

As a wood it’s extremely heavy, hard, strong and tough. It has a density of 600 kg/m3. For comparison’s sake, the teak wood tree has a density of 655 kg/m3 while the white oak tree has a density of 755 kg/m3. The radiata pine is considerably less heavy or durable, and has a density of just 515 kg/m3. You can see from this data that acacia hardwood is right up there with some of the hardest, densest woods we know. This makes it ideal for both indoor and outdoor furniture. And of course it’s a great product for hard wood kitchen countertops where durability and toughness are important qualities.

Acacia hardwood has inherent oils, very much the same as teak does. These natural oils make it very suitable for use in wet conditions such as you’ll find in any kitchen or bathroom. Add some stain and a surface treatment and you'll find that you have an attractive wooden kitchen countertop with outstanding water and weather resistant properties. Glued together with the appropriate adhesives it forms a solid unit that will provide reliable and attractive service for many years to come. Variations in sunlight, soil PH and rainfall create gentle swirls and colours.
