Butcher Block Countertops Ideas
When the kitchen remodeling is faced with financial issues, the best solution comes into my mind automatically: Butcher block countertops ideas and butcher block island tops. Butcher blocks are mostly known as chopper’s block but the difference is the wood filler for butcher blocks. Therefore butcher blocks are more durable than chopper blocks but at the same time cost-friendly countertops. The other face of the medallion is the sustainability and natural blending look.
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:
Appalachian Red Oak,
Hard Rock Maple,
There are also blended and end grain options.

Eclectic kitchen ideas inspired by the farmhouse style, industrial style, and rustic style. The earth tones are amazingly tied. Head-to-toe excellency in the design: High arched ceiling with medieval brass chandelier, full high painted brick backsplash, wooden thick window frames, slate countertops without edging, distressed antique light color cabinet, thick butcher block over the island, spiral metal stools with concrete seats. Hard labor pays back.

Transitional interior kitchen design with two-tone cabinets and two-tone countertops: The black countertops over the white cabinet pop up well and match with the matchstick marble backsplash. The island top is half butcher block by using the walnut tree and half Cambria engineered stone. Gray island base looks gorgeous.

This idea amazes me all the time. The aim of the countersink would be for washing the dishes and the sink on the island would be for preparing the food. Cream Corian countertop and thick butcher block countertop are in color code matching with cream cabinets. By the way, yellow is the color of the stomach and my mouth is already watering.

Transitional interior renovation with thick walnut butcher block. Open shelves with direct sunlight and butcher block are the essentials for this gorgeous space. Two separate sinks are also very functional, especially the one over the island. Food preparation over the butcher block would be very satisfying. The island top seems very decorative itself.

High ceilings, large windows, and two separate sinks are mostly the dream of all housewives in a kitchen. I hope these housewives’ dreams will come true. Butcher block countertops and islands take the most part of the attention plus types of wood are very very important. Hats off design.

DIY cooking space with white and olive green cabinets. Butcher blocks cutting boards to sit alongside the kitchen sink and slides through the sink. Most of it fits any countertop. This is such a creative idea to use the butcher block cutting board over the butcher block countertop. The lightbox over the island top is another functional idea to give some perspective and fanciness to remodeling elements.

The next step in entertaining: Long narrow sinks let you make your house party fabulous. This sink over the island is framed with a nice thick butcher block countertop and it can be filled with ice. After filling the ice, use your imagination as a beverage bar, ice cream bar, salsa bar, shrimp or oyster bar, sashimi bar, or anything … Creative designs always deserve a big applause.

This beautiful lake view kitchen has a granite combined butcher block worktop. The contrast between the cool-toned granite with the warm wood is amazing. The white kitchen with dark hardwood flooring and white wood panel coffered ceiling completes the puzzle.

Transitional kitchen with transitional colors. Wood and soft blue always remind me of the countryside. Melodious touches of blue are everywhere: Mini brick full high backsplash has some essence of blue, wall panels and wood cabinet with glass doors and even the kitchen island with legs have the soft blue. The thick butcher block countertop and the inlet window behind the stove are the most essential elements.

Trends In Butcher Block Countertop Using For Kitchen Remodeling
Butcher Block Countertops are biodegradable and eco-friendly. This remodeling element is one of the oldest elements ever. Remember to prepare the food, it needs some attention when the butcher block is in service.
Over the Kitchen Island Base as Island Top:
It can be used either one-piece plain surface or with the sink, using next to the stove would cause some burns and harm.
The trendy way is combining with quartz island top or granite island top. The end of the island or half of the island would be butcher block.
Most island bases are giving the contrast color to the kitchen and the butcher block countertop needs to match with base color and backsplash color.
If the 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.
