We enjoy making gifts that not only look amazing, but should also last a significantly long time. In order to help the product you have either purchased or received last, we have put together some quick care and maintenance tips together for you.
When it comes to selecting the right cutting board, you've got a few options for materials. The worst are made of glass or marble. That sound your knife makes when you rock it back and forth on a metal cutting board? That's the sound of your knife dying a thousand tiny but painful deaths as the blade dulls on the hard surface.
Much better are softer surfaces, like plastic or wood. Modern plastic cutting boards, are hard enough to keep them from absorbing odors, but soft enough that they won't dull your blade. But for everyday use, wood is the best cutting board material by a long shot. Not only is it extra kind to your knife blade, it's also the safest material because bacteria have a much lower survival rate on wood than on plastic. Oh, and wood cutting boards are just plain gorgeous too.
What goes best with that new cutting board you just got than a nice new kitchen knife with a matching handle design? Or are you simply just looking for a nice new coffee scoop to use during your morning routine? Coffee is not the only thing that needs a scoop, a one of a kind ice cream scoop is the unique add-on to any kitchen drawer. Or maybe cracking open a cold one with friends is the perfect way to unwind while using your new bottle opened? Whatever the gift is that you have purchased or received, we want to make sure you know how best to take care of your new kitchen utensil.
There is no household area that doesn’t suit the warmth, richness, comfort and finesse of wooden furniture. Tables, chairs, bed frames, shelves, chests of drawers, cupboards and even ornaments—the advantages of wooden furniture in the home cannot be overstated. Most of all, wood offers a unique combination of aesthetic appeal and peerless structural integrity that other materials can’t reflect.
As part of nature-connected interior design, wood can transform the mood of a room or entire house, creating a homely, welcoming feel and a truly 'organic' sense. It’s also not a fad—this material and has been used for furniture construction for generations upon generations, and as such offers a timeless quality that cannot be replicated.
