They must be resilient and with a surface somewhat wider than that of standard models. We can decorate it in advance, painting it in matching colors or adding ornamental details. Find out what dimensions you have to configure the furniture, keep in mind that these have to be at least as long as the depth of the two pieces of furniture. The next step will be to incorporate a worktop of a resistant material, suitable to the use that we will make of it in the kitchen and taking into account that it will be in contact with liquids and wet products.

The simplest is to buy a sheet of the material chosen and cut to the right dimensions. Kitchen cart with butcher block top is a popular choice as it is cheap, easy to clean, and a great size for use in kitchens. Granite may also be a good choice, but the slabs are so heavy that it will be important to ensure the sturdiness of the furniture before placing it to avoid future setbacks.  The white lacquered wooden model incorporates an elegant marble slab, providing a classic touch to the design of the kitchen, which fits perfectly with the style of the furniture.
