This Is Happening: Butcher-Block Countertops

Updated 09/29/17
Product Disclosure

Butcher-block countertops are often associated with shabby chic rustic cottages. And for the past few years, stone—particularly marble—has dominated kitchen countertops. We love the sophisticated look of an all-white kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, but we’re noticing designers returning to tried-and-true butcher-block countertops to add textural interest and warmth to refined, modern, and eclectic spaces alike. Whether used throughout for the entire kitchen, or as an accent piece on an island, butcher block is a versatile alternative to costly and often high-maintenance stones. Read on to see our favorite kitchens with these enduring countertops.
