A butcher block island is a nice idea if you are looking for a way to beautify your kitchen. Conventional kitchen might be boring with the monotone countertops and steel appliances. This island that has warm color will add more character to the kitchen.

A kitchen is supposed to be a warm place. It is supposed to be a warm place where your family can gather around. The kitchen is a place where the children talk about the day while the parents are preparing dinner. If you feel your kitchen now is too cold, here is a nice idea for your kitchen.

Certain characters and the care of a butcher block island

The butcher block island is usually preferred because of its wooden material. The common choice for the butcher block top is of maple wood or bamboo material. The color of maple wood and bamboo is rather light and would blend in with almost every color.

Some people prefer other hard woods like walnut, teak, or cherry wood. These types of wood are darker and will provide more contrast to lighter cabinet colors.

There is no certain theory to the best wood for your island. It all comes down to the mood that you want to create. Also take note of the existing interior. Each of these woods has different colors that you maybe want to match with your kitchen interior.

One thing that is certain is that a wooden countertop island will give your kitchen a warmer and more natural look. They are usually also affordable and biodegradable. The wooden countertop will look more beautiful as it ages, with some occasional knife marks and burns.

One thing that you have to consider though is the care and maintenance of these wooden countertops. A butcher block island requires sanding and oiling twice a year to preserve the wood. It is also best to keep detergents, strong chemicals, and puddles of water out of its way.
