About Butcher Block
Butcher block is a style of wood named for its popularity in butcher and meat shops. It has been used historically and is reminiscent of European designs. Butcher block is available in two styles: edge grain and end grain—the second of which is considered the stronger and more durable. Popular hardwoods like oak and maple are often used in butcher block applications.
Are Butcher Block Countertops Right for You?
The advantages of installing butcher block countertops in your kitchen go far beyond the aesthetic. Wood is popular primarily for its:
- Warm, inviting, and authentic appearance—butcher block countertops are perfect in rustic kitchen designs!
- Versatility—wood is available in a variety of grains, textures, colors, and finishes
- Affordable installation costs
- Anti-bacterial qualities when properly sealed
- Quiet functionality—no banging or clanking like with other countertop materials!
- Resistance to scratching
- Ability to be cleaned easily—just use soap and water!
Butcher block countertops, however, may not be right for everyone. Because wood does not do well with moisture, it must be cleaned right away to prevent damage when there’s a spill. Wood also requires proper sealing and sanding to retain its naturally charming look in a kitchen environment.
