It should be no surprise that we’re in love with seeing wood countertops in the kitchen! If you’re looking to fully embrace the wood-on-wood trend, you should consider wooden countertops or a butcher block kitchen island. It’s amazing how much warmth and personality a butcher block countertop can bring into your kitchen.
These countertops can be customized to fit your personal style depending on what type of wood you choose to use. If you like a more rustic aesthetic, opt for a more neutral-colored wood with a live edge. If your style is more timeless and sophisticated, the elegance of a dark and shiny wood kitchen island would contrast beautifully with traditional white wood cabinetry. No matter how you incorporate this design trend into your kitchen, your butcher block countertops will always be a conversation piece.

Many homeowners opt for the warmth and texture that wood cabinetry provides. Your cabinets attract a lot of attention within your space so choosing a wood type and color that best suits your personal style is an important part of the design process. Consider playing with different types of wood within your kitchen to create visual and textual contrast between your cabinets, floors, and countertops.
Your flooring is another way to reflect your personal style. Wood floors can help a kitchen feel more open and expansive when the same or similar colors are used in a wood-on-wood space. Complimentary colors, on the other hand, are a great way to give your kitchen additional dimension and personality.
You can mix and combine different grain patterns and colors in countless ways to match any aesthetic and create lasting visual interest in your kitchen!
The spring of 2020 will forever be remembered. When things came to a stand still many of us were sent home to work and didn’t have a dedicated room to call an office. We made do and found a corner, an old desk or an extra table. Eight months later and that not-much-of-an-office space is still being used heavily. The table doesn’t have any storage and the mountains of paperwork are becoming landmines.
Live edge wood countertops offer a unique and organic element to your space. The term ‘live edge’ refers to an unsawn edge that reveals the natural characteristics of the lumber. Live edge countertops have grown in popularity due to the warmth and beauty of natural wood. Rich color tones, knots, and exciting texture inspires an exciting design within your space.
So you’ve decided that you want to install butcher block countertops by Thanksgiving… Congratulations! Whether you’ve been contemplating your decision for months or were suddenly inspired after a late-night Pinterest session, making the decision to move forward with a DIY kitchen renovation is always an exciting step.
