Oak - a living classic
The nordic hardwood in all it's designs
At Kvik, an oak worktop is the definition of a classical genuine wood experience on top of your kitchen. But it doesn't have to look conventional
If you have you heart set on a genuine wooden worktop you belong to almost a club of people who treasures a long list the veins, or the glow, or the eventual patina or the feel and the lineage of that piece of the forrest that now forms your kitchen worktop. Or all of the above. And to most of that group of our customers, the extra care that genuine wood demands is not a minus - it is way to groom for the fact that the work still is full of life and character, that grows when groomed and buffed.
Structure - Kvik Oak excels in veins and end grain Oak comes in several dimensions, and the 'fat' dimensions give a lush character. It also comes in several different finishes and nuances - mainly du different pigmenting of the protective oil applied.
Edges - Because Kvik oak is massive, it's looks are the same inside of it, it invites to creativyty for our pro carpenters as well as DIY's
Oak puts a few design limits to what styles you can choose when sink mounting and tap mount is posible in you project. Please talk to your local Kvik consultant
Oak is strong and robust, and it shows its robustness in its apppearance. At Kvik we use carefully selected cuts and sections of oak timber to form glulam that gives all the reliabilyty strength and consistent straightness in its lifespan. Oak may be resanded several times, in case of surface damage.
Kvik Oak and the massive wood tops are all FSC-certified wood and have the second lowest CO2 footprint* of all our worktops, mainly because it is highly recyclable, and because proces transportation is limitied.
Like all massive wood worktops, they are easy to be around. Daily cleaning is easy, but we suggest regular care is left in the hands of grown ups.
