Oak is still top of the tops when it comes to timber worksurfaces
Fashion trends may come and go but one that is standing the test of time is for timber worksurfaces, with oak being the most popular choice with consumers.
The Tuscan Solid Wood worksurface range offers nine species with craftsmanship appeal and the design flexibility to work successfully in a range of kitchen styles. The premium selection of timbers includes Bamboo, Brown Ash, Cherry, Country Beech, Iroko, Maple, Oak, Prime Beech and Walnut.
There is a flexible choice of sizes in 2m, 3m and 4m lengths, four thicknesses of 28mm, 32mm, 40mm and 60mm and two widths of 650 and 900mm depending on species selected. All species are available in a 40mm upstand in a 3m length.
Says Rebecca Slinn, marketing manager at IDS:
"Woodgrains reference the past while looking forward - and adding a sumptuous looking woodgrain to a contemporary or traditional kitchen provides that nod to warmth and nostalgia that appeals to many consumers."
Species are certified with either FSC or PEFC accreditation, the two most widely respected environmental standards in the industry and are further backed by IDS's own environmental stamp guaranteeing responsibly sourced timber.
Tuscan worktops are available ex-stock from any of IDS's 12 branches. Retailer POS includes a 16-page brochure and a countertop sample display stand to help product selection.
