Although granite is the latest craze for countertops, in reality, it may not fit the needs or the style of every home. What about a more rustic approach or something more warm and homey? If you are considering new countertops for your home, you may want to take a look at butcher block countertops. They offer a number of great features that will give your home a different appeal.
You may have seen butcher block countertops make an appearance on TV in the homes of professional chefs and on cooking shows. While it’s true that these beautiful kitchen countertops are great for the avid food connoisseur, they also make an excellent addition for period homes and houses that require a more down-to-earth feel. Their natural warmth and beauty make them a great choice for a number of applications.
Butcher block countertops are made of thick strips of hardwood that are glued together to make a solid surface. In general, the harder the wood variety, the sturdier your countertops will be. However, butcher block countertops can be made out of just about any wood type you desire and can have a number of different tones, depending on the wood and finish chosen. You can also determine whether you would like a finish that allows for heavy cooking or simply for a beautiful display.
