The latest trend we’re seeing in kitchen design is wood countertops: both functional and decorative. Functional ones, like a butcher block, are ideal for food preparation. Decorative countertops are often installed to provide a more luxurious finish. Once sealed, wood countertops are sanitary for chopping meat, and hot pots and pans can easily be placed on the surface because wood countertops are heat-resistant. Light colored wood is always a safe bet, but the color options for wooden countertops are almost endless and usually beautiful. Make sure to consider all your options. Cabinetry Designs carries a custom line of wooden countertops and you can see wood samples at our showroom. Take a look at some of the results.
