Wood countertops and island tops are versatile and they add usable and attractive space to your kitchen. Wood tops can be custom countertops or butcher block island tops. They are extremely useful because you can create extra food preparation space or extra eating space for your family, or both. Even better, they can make your home an excellent place for entertaining your friends and colleagues.
Small Pieces with Wood Tops
“Small pieces” refer to small kitchen island tops, like our Reclaimed White Oak Peninsula. It’s a white oak top that meets the wall, creating a cozy corner for working. The plank style top is the classic construction style for kitchen islands.
Small wooden tops include butcher block tops. Butcher block is typically a relatively small but useful custom hardwood top. Real hardwood butcher block is impervious to bacterial growth. This means that you can cut up all your meal ingredients, including meat, on your butcher block surface.
A hardwood tabletop for two that nests against your countertop is a new way to look at breakfast nooks. It’s easy to serve when you only have to reach up to your countertop. Nesting tables like our Round Chestnut Curve Table, with its quietly dramatic grain, will make intimate meals convenient and enjoyable.
Large Pieces with Hardwood Tops
Many people think of butcher block as a small wood piece that you might store in a cabinet. Butcher block islands are very popular with our clients and for good reason—they’re beautiful. Edge grain (strips of wood from the edges of pieces of lumber) is the most popular construction style of butcher block.
While butcher block can be as small as a countertop extension or inset, our clients usually prefer a butcher block island. An edge grain butcher block top is the perfect surface for meal preparation and casual meals.
Real handmade butcher block has natural antibacterial properties. You can easily prepare a meal consisting of both meat and vegetables on your butcher block top. After wiping it down with soap and water, you can eat at or serve food from the same surface.
Maryland Wood Countertops can build kitchen islands that include amenities like sinks but still leave you with plenty of room for eating lunch or doing homework. The coziest place for homework is in the kitchen with you close at hand. Imagine how much easier life is when you can prepare a meal on your kitchen island while helping your children with their homework because they are right beside you.
Out of the Kitchen
