Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher block, prized by chefs as a durable cutting surface, is not only a functional addition to your kitchen but also a stylish one that blends well with a variety of decors. At LL Flooring, we offer a selection of beautiful butcher block countertops in colors and grains to suit a wide range of tastes, allowing you to bring nature’s beauty into your kitchen.
The Benefits of Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher block is made of strips of solid wood that are bonded together and sanded down to a smooth surface. Unlike granite, steel, and other hard options, butcher block is less likely to dull knives. It also muffles the sound of pots and tableware, making for a quieter kitchen. And of course, the clean and natural look of wood is appealing in and of itself.
Our butcher block countertops come in a variety of wood species featuring colors and grains that give each its own distinct character. We have maple countertops that range from creamy light to reddish tones, and exotic acacia countertops with contrasting medium brown hues. The deep, rich tones of American Walnut would work well in traditional kitchens. Choose from countertops that are 8 feet and 12 feet in length.
Care and Maintenance
Season your new countertop with food-grade mineral oil, if you’ll be using it as a cutting board. Add a conditioner to seal in the oil and to prevent drying and cracking. You'll find both products at LL Flooring. To keep your butcher block clean, simply wash it with mild detergent and water. If you're not using it as a cutting surface, treat your countertop with an alternate finish. One of the other great benefits of a butcher block countertop is that after years of use, you can simply sand it down for instant renewal.
Butcher block is not only trendy; it’s a beautiful blend of function and form. And at LL Flooring, you don’t have to stop at countertops. Shop our butcher block cutting boards and island tops to complete your kitchen redesign.
