7 Display-Worthy Cutting Boards Your Kitchen Needs
Keep your tools handy with these gorgeous, backsplash-worthy cutting boards that double as art.
Honestly, we are all a little jealous of Kate Hudson’s cutting board collection. Sure, it’s a little excessive perhaps, but cutting boards are just as much pieces of art as they are kitchen tools. The right cutting board leaned against a backsplash can add texture and warmth to an otherwise stiff environment. Best of all: when you need it, you don't have to reach far.
Nothing says classic like a thick, end-grain cutting board. End-grain is preferred by most chefs and butchers not only for its unique beauty but also because it stands up to scratches and indentations much better than edge-grain. This particular model also benefits from the natural water-resistance of teak wood making it a bulletproof cutting board that will last you a lifetime.
