Butcher-Block Countertops

Vintage Sitting Area

Warm, timeless and versatile, like furniture, wood counters can be designed from a variety of different species: think walnut, elm, oak, pine, cherry, bamboo and hickory—or even reclaimed or salvaged materials.

While some like to think of wood as adding a nostalgic element to the kitchen, a better word might be “approachable.” There's nothing pretentious about a wood countertop, but when used as a counterpart to a gorgeously finished kitchen island base or impeccably tailored cabinetry, the resulting look might be as varied as antique-chic, cottage-casual or rustically elegant. Wood countertops are also more affordable than most stone or stone-look materials.

Butcher-block countertops have recently increased in popularity, and they're equally attractive and inviting. Available in a variety of species, finishes and grains, they're also great for cooks who love to work in the kitchen, or owners of period homes.
