Wood Countertops crafted in Flat Grain Construction and Edge Grain Construction can include a stain application. Countertops crafted in End Grain Construction, also referred to as Butcher Blocks, cannot include a stain application.

All Stained Wood Countertops manufactured by Grothouse are required to be sealed with our exclusive proprietary finish, Durata® Permanent Finish. Durata® is a maintenance-free finish that not only makes your countertop completely waterproof, but also resistant to chemicals.  

Stained Wood Countertops | Stock Stains

Stained Wood Countertops are designed in various ways. Grothouse offers over 40 Stock Stains and continue to add to our selection based on current trends and customer requests.

Leah Heinsius of Faralli Kitchen & Bath Design Studio designed the Ash Wood Countertop pictured below. Ash is naturally a light blonde color. The countertop was stained with our Stock Block Stain #05555 to look like Wenge. Wenge is naturally a dark brown, black color. Ash is a less expensive wood specie than Wenge, and staining allows the consumer to receive a countertop with a similar appearance without paying the price of Wenge. Staining also gives the consumer the ability to receive the color they desire for their countertop.
