Bamboo Benchtops make a great alternative that also look spectacular in any kitchen. Not only are they very practical, but will add a natural warmth and glow to your kitchen. These benchtops are safe from water, warping and heat. No need for coasters or mats, move any hot pan straight from your stove to your bamboo benchtop and it remains unaffected unlike wooden bench tops (watch the video to the right for proof). As these benchtops are solid bamboo, if you do find that there are a few scratches or marks over time simply sand it down and revarnish for a benchtop that looks as good as new.
