Frequently asked questions about worktop treatment
Can you paint a kitchen worktop?
Yes, adding a coat of paint is a great (and cheap!) way to freshen up your kitchen worktop with a new look. Just be sure to give the worktops a thorough clean using a surface cleaner before starting.
How to oil a kitchen worktop
Danish oil or tung oil are your best choices for oiling a kitchen worktop, with tung oil particularly effective on oak surfaces. Simply wipe a thin layer on and leave to dry thoroughly after removing any excess. Although the surface will likely be touch dry within 2-4 hours, you should leave 24 hours between coats to allow the worktop to dry completely, and leave for at least four full days when you have applied the final coat. This allows the surface to harden up properly which will give you a better finish in the long run.
How many coats of oil are needed on an oak worktop?
It is recommended to apply at least 3 coats of oil on your oak work surfaces, using either a clean paintbrush or a cloth. You should use thin coats to allow the worktop to dry more easily.
