Kitchen Counters - Butcher Block Part 6

November 09, 2009 / by / In

Wood countertops offer variety and functionality. Hardwoods such as maple and oak are most often used as countertop woods.  Most frequently used for islands or an inlayed work areas.

Pros: Easy to clean and a smooth work surface for baking.  Can be sanded and resealed as needed.

Cons: Can be damaged by water and stains over time.  Scratches must be oiled or sealed according to manufacturer’s specifications.

Summary: A good option for islands when used in conjuction with other materials like granite.  Due to the maintenance required, not a good idea for an entire kitchen.
