Consider wood kitchen countertops for your next remodeling project.

Wood kitchen countertops may get outmuscled by their more heavy-duty stone counterparts, but the material is as handsome and durable as it is fashionable.


Explore These Beautiful Kitchen Countertop Design Options for Ideas!

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.
