Butcher Block Kitchen Countertops Timeless and inviting wood butcher block countertops add a warm look to your kitchen. To keep the finish looking fresh and new seal wood countertops with a durable polyurethane and use trivets and cutting boards to protect the surface from heat and marring.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
Choose a material: The most common material is wood for kitchen cabinets. Wood is durable versatile and can be stained or painted and can have a million different looks. Other materials include metal/stainless steel plastic laminate and lower quality MDF or particle board. Depending on your lifestyle and budget will help you decide on a material that suits your style and wallet. Metal cabinets and wood are more expensive than plastic laminate and particle board.
