Live Edge Kitchen Island earthy – modern addition to your kitchen
Our solid wood waney edge kitchen islands (square edge if you prefer) and kitchen peninsula tops are crafted from full stave, very wide wood planks (250mm+ wide wood planks) originating from the same tree, therefore colour and feature compatible.
Natural Wood Kitchen islands from Timberdeal and our sister company Earthy Timber are full of character & earthy charm, treated with our signature resin infill technique. The earthy complexion and radiant warmth of the organic patterns and striations in live edge solid wood kitchen islands bring a fresh, natural touch to the surrounding environment, the style that blends contemporary simplicity with heritage elegance.
Please refer to our Earthy Timber Everyday Store for pricing of our solid wood live edge kitchen island table tops (square edge if you prefer) We can also create personalised, kitchen island surface designs from 1-2 wood slabs with selected, unique features upon request. Please keep in mind, this service is more expensive.
Beautiful Kitchen Island Worktops handcrafted in England
Our live edge kitchen island worktops (square edge if you prefer) are handcrafted to order, individually designed to inspire. Unlike cold stone or composites, character wood adds warmth to your kitchen, inviting family and friends to spend time together in a relaxed, casual way.
Kitchen Island Solid Wood Worktop resin infill technique encapsulates the character wood features in a blanket of clear resin. That way, our solid wood kitchen island worktops and surfaces retain their classic, raw beauty with a modern hint. Resin infill technique also makes our wooden tops hyginic to use and very easy to clean and maintain.
Live Edge Kitchen Island (square edge if you prefer) Finishing Service
Our professional finishing of live edge kitchen island (or square edge if you prefer) includes fine sanding and application of oils or clear lacquer. The fine sanding process gives our solid wood worktops a smooth, elegant finish. It also prepares them for the subsequent treatment. Our wooden tops are further sanded in-between the application of each coat for added durability and aesthetic appeal. Timberdeal customers have the choice between oil and lacquer kitchen island finish depending on individual preferences. Alternatively, you may also choose to – at your own cost – arrange the finishing service with your fitter or do it yourself.
Kitchen Island’s Oil Finish – The unique properties of oil enhance the grain over time and amplify the rich, natural colours of wood island, so you have everything to look forward to in the upcoming years. The oil penetrates deeper layers of your kitchen island worktop to form an extensive protective in depth film. This creates a shield-like effect that prevents damage once the top layer of oil begins to fade. Oil-finishing requires no budget-hungry interventions as it is easier to repair. Your surface will require occasional re-oiling in accordance with our maintenance guide so that your wood kitchen island top remains nourished and beautiful. The oiled-finish is perfect for those who love the natural, organic qualities of wood.
We would however suggest that you take care to place cups, glasses and hot plates on a coaster or mat in the early life of your solid wood island top.
At Timberdeal we use a blend of high quality, fragrant oils, ideal for surfaces & worktops requiring a hard-wearing, water-resistant finish. The protective layer built by the finishing oil is water-, heat-, alcohol- and food acid-resistant.
Kitchen Island’s Lacquer Finish is a great solution for those seeking a clear wood finish. Its durable, protective coating and higher viscosity are perfect for surfaces frequently exposed to moisture. Unlike oil, which intensifies the depth of the colour palette, lacquer maintains more of the natural colours of wood with a transparent, preservative layer. Lacquer can be spread over both raw and newly stained wood or even older layers of the same finish, granted the wood is thoroughly sanded. Due to its higher levels of viscosity, lacquer does not penetrate the timber as effectively as oil, which consequently means it does not provide further protection underneath its surface. The finish may require re-coating in a few years.
At Timberdeal we utilise a water-based, low VOC solution that offers high resistance to scratches and stains on your solid wood kitchen island top whilst maintaining the natural beauty and feel of the live edge wood. It is ideal for use on busy solid wood kitchen island tops. The mixture also features non-yellowing, UV protected formula.
