Butcher Block Kitchen Countertops Timeless and inviting wood butcher block countertops add a warm look to your kitchen. To keep the finish looking fresh and new seal wood countertops with a durable polyurethane and use trivets and cutting boards to protect the surface from heat and marring.
While countertops flooring and cabinets are generally places to keep it simple the backsplash is a good place to inject some personal style whether that’s with a mosaic feature or a bold color. And since that wall literally connects the countertops with the cabinets it’s also a place to tie everything together.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
