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.
Most wood countertops are traditional butcher blocks, but today they are chosen more for their appearance than their usefulness for chopping. These countertops are modern versions of the thick rounds of sycamore that butchers worked on until the 1880s. lengths of hard maple glued together took their place in the early 1900s because they are a stronger, more durable surface.
The Brown Residence by Lake|Flato Architects has a pretty interesting kitchen. The backsplash window doesn’t look directly outdoors but rather into a hallway. It‘s an interesting way of connecting the spaces and ensuring a seamless transition and a continuous flow between them.
