To remove lime scale, it‘s best to use diluted vinegar and for coffee deposits, clean the area with baking soda. Using chloride-free glass cleaner is also another way to get a quick shine.

According to construction guru Bob Villa, maple and bamboo are the most popular species because of their availability and sustainability. However, many hardwoods are also well-suited for kitchen countertops, depending on the look you want and the region in which you live in. An example of a regional wood used for countertops is mesquite in the Southwest United States. Mesquite is as well suited as black walnut or cherry. Woods that are very soft like pine are not usually used for countertops
InForm Design had a similar idea when working on the Blairgowrie House. The concept in this case was a little bit different. The window is not a replacement for a traditional backsplash but rather an addition to one. The window is merely a quirky feature that brings in a little bit of light and a peaceful view for the sink area while the rest of the counter features a white subway tiled backsplash.
