Like other wood countertops, live edge counters look better with age as long as they are cared for. When choosing a live edge piece, look for wood from a builder or craftsman who air dries the wood for a number of years and kiln dries it to lower its moisture levels.
Next, do a light scrub with baking soda and vinegar using a non-abrasive material or scrub brush in the direction of the grain. Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or a rough kitchen scrubbie to clean stainless steel. Use a clean damp dish cloth to rinse the surface and then dry it with a paper towel or microfiber cloth, also in the direction of the grain. This helps prevent streaking.
Ideally, a kitchen should have lots of natural light and that usually means that sacrifices have to be made in order to accommodate large windows or that you have to find a way to design your kitchen with an open and bright decor. Multifunctional designs are always preferred in kitchens regardless of their size and style so why not have a window backsplash? It‘s both a window and a backsplash and it‘s exactly what a kitchen needs to look bright, spacious and inviting. Lots of architects and designers agree.
