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.
In addition to creating more counter space, an island is also a way to add more storage and avoid kitchen clutter by using drawers, cupboards and shelves. This is beneficial especially if appliances take up a lot of cabinet room, or if you’re looking for a unique way to showcase certain items by using open shelving. Store dishes and pots within reach or keep less frequently used appliances out of the way. Another option is to use open shelving to display cookbooks or other items.
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.
Take inspiration from the professional cook’s practical countertop two-tone approach to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen.
