Wood brings warmth and coziness everywhere, especially to the kitchen, though many of you can say that such surfaces are not practical for kitchens or bathrooms because they can dry up. There are lots of finishes that make wooden surfaces durable now, so don’t hesitate to use them everywhere you like. Today we’ll show you how well a wooden kitchen countertop may look in any kitchen.
Butcher block is made from straight cuts of wood glued together into thick slabs that provide a particularly sturdy and stable work surface in a kitchen. For kitchen counters, it’s important to use unsealed, oil-finished wood. Sealed countertops are not meant to be used as food-prep work surfaces–they’re not food or knife friendly. Maintain your countertops regularly and they will reward you by aging gracefully. But without proper upkeep, they can dull and crack.
A just wooden countertop is also great idea – it looks warm and beautiful, great not only for cooking but also for eating, and you can make one even above a concrete or stone countertop.
Different types of wood look differently, and you will definitely find one for your style or even DIY it. Of course, such countertops require sealing and proper care, maybe more than others but they will create a cozy and warm look in your space. Look at the inspiring ideas below!
