Some people might shy away from having this type of counter installed with a fear that it will take a lot of maintenance. However, we’re here to share with you how to rock the trendy butcher block style without sacrificing any functionality.
From a functional standpoint, butcher block countertops are an excellent choice for areas of your kitchen where you’ll be doing a lot of food prep. A wood countertop is ideal for using as a surface to cut on if it is properly maintained.
Installing butcher block is also best in areas that aren’t exposed to high heat or a lot of water. Many homeowners choose to have a workspace, island, or other part of their counter covered in butcher block rather than installing it throughout the entire kitchen.
All countertops require routine care, and butcher block countertops are no different. There are simple and basic recommended practices for keeping it in good condition. If these countertops are well cared for, they are very durable and will last a long time.
