Trends In Butcher Block Countertop Using For Kitchen Remodeling

It can be used either one-piece plain surface or with the sink, using it next to the stove would cause some burns and harm. 

The trendy way is combining it with a quartz island top or granite island top. The end of the island or half of the island would be the butcher block. 

Most island bases are giving a contrasting color to the kitchen and the butcher block countertop needs to match with base color and backsplash color. 

If a sink is an option, long narrow sinks are good for entertaining, round sinks are on the far end of the island, and rectangle or square sinks are close to the center.


Butcher Block countertops are pretty good-looking if U Shape or L Shape kitchen layouts are considered.

Kitchen Styles Matching With Butcher Block Countertops

Rustic style, french country style, and farmhouse style are the natural styles for butcher block countertops. Besides these, Contemporary, Traditional, Transitional, Craftsman, Beach House, and Eclectic styles are the options if you have a keen-eyed designer.

Wood types for Butcher Block Countertops

Budgeting your kitchen remodeling would be easy by having the below wood types. The cost of the countertop would also vary with respect to the thickness of the butcher block as well. The thickness can go in between 1.5 inches and 6 inches. 

Below are the less expensive to more expensive options:

Birch, Appalachian Red Oak, Hard Rock Maple, Cherry, Hickory, Acacia, Walnut, and Teak

There are also blended and end-grain options.
