Beech is a pale timber with a prominent grain pattern. Beech worktops are suitable for pretty much any style of kitchen and have the benefits of durability and reliability. Here at Kitchen Surplus, we offer two types of beech finishes – rustic or prime and each has its own special character that adds a different feel to a kitchen.
Beech is an ideal wood to use in a traditional kitchen and this rustic worktop has plenty of old-world charm that emphasises that classical feel. Compared to the prime beech, rustic beech has a more prominent and varied grain pattern, with a textured finish. Likewise, the colour tends to be richer and warmer and so produces a softer, more welcoming feel to a kitchen.
Prime beech has a uniform finish resulting in a more delicate colour and grain texture when compared to the rustic beech. Although prime beech can still be used in a traditional style kitchen to great effect, it will work equally as well when used in a contemporary design.
