Wood lends a special warmth and depth to any room and it‘s no wonder that those who love wood want to include it in the kitchen. Wood countertops – whether they are live edge, slab or butcher block – add enduring beauty to your layout. While they are attractive, they are not for everyone, mainly because they require more care and maintenance than other popular countertop materials.
Even though it has a very open layout, there‘s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that‘s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
For a countertop that will not see heavy use, a slice of wood that features the natural contours of the tree can’t be beat. Variations in thickness and size, as well as availability, make them difficult to include in a functional kitchen. These are best suited to dining areas, bars or decorative countertops, not workhorse surfaces. The more gnarly the edge, the greater the artful feel.
The most common type is made from boards placed on their sides and glued so that the narrower edge forms the surface. De Vos Woodworking says the strips can be “continuous lengths with no joints, or random- length pieces that are finger-jointed.“ These types of countertops work best in for large countertops, like long kitchen counters or island tops. Because wood only moves in one direction, across its width, edge grain butcher block is more stable than other wood countertops. It can also be less pricey.
