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.
There are many different ways you can approach this decision, and since an island takes up a significant amount of floor space it’s worth it to take time to make every element of its design intentional.
What’s more inviting than being welcomed into a cozy ? One of the easiest ways to achieve the “down home” aesthetic is by adding a beadboard backsplash. All application requires is the same liquid nail solution you’d put down for wood paneling, and a few finishing nails around the perimeter for you to create a space fit for the rolling hills.
A trending countertop look involves wrapping your countertop material by using it on the top and sides of cabinets, as seen in the image above. A wrap creates an interesting look that draws the eye across other parts of the room. For the most visual impact, add this effect to your kitchen if your countertops are a contrasting color to the rest of the kitchen components.
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.
