Wood Countertops with Drainboards


Wood countertops with drainboards make all the difference in a working kitchen.

Exceptional culinary experiences don’t just happen; they are created; and creating the highest of quality meals, requires the best in countertop design.  Drainboards are the perfect accompaniment to add additional functionality to your kitchen workspace.

Custom drainboards with flat grain and edge grain style countertops are revered designs. For protection, our Durata® permanent finish assures a waterproof seal. Durata® is available in Satin or Matte sheens. Custom or stock stains can be applied to the countertop if desired.

Designing Wood Countertops with Drainboards

Wood countertops with drainboards are custom made to your specifications at Grothouse. The drainboard can be placed on one or both sides of the sink. The width of the drainboard varies based on the overall design. The drainboard channels are sloped so that the water will drain off naturally. The photograph of the countertop with drainboards (to the right) demonstrates the sloping of the channels. The photograph of the Walnut wood countertop above features a sloped countertop in which the drainboard is carved. The sloping of a drainboard is an important feature. Many manufacturers simply route horizontal channels into countertops that do not facilitate proper drainage. Our Durata® finish is required with all drainboards. This assures a waterproof finish that permanently protects the wood. Durata® Matte finish provides an organic appearance to the wood as it looks like a natural oil finish. Durata® in Satin appears like a satin furniture finish. No ongoing maintenance is required with Durata® permanent finish. Clean with dish detergent or any common household cleaner.
