If your kitchen has room for a kitchen cart and you like the look of butcher block, then you need one of these. A kitchen island of any type gives you more storage space and more food prep space. It can give you much-needed additional cabinets and drawers.
Butcher block offers a unique design that’s appealing. The style and creativity in the design makes the kitchen look awesome and modern, yet warm and inviting. This is a perfect way to add a rustic touch to your kitchen while still keeping it contemporary.
Just as importantly, this style of countertop can fit into the decor of most any kitchen. It looks great on a cart next to countertops made of granite, engineered stone, tile and more.
The only concern is if your countertops are also butcher block. In that case, make sure the cart you choose either matches or coordinates with your existing countertops to avoid a clash of styles.
You can use them as an island table or countertop, or even create a unique design with them as the centerpiece of your kitchen. Regardless of how you use them, they’re sure to make your kitchen look great and stylish.,.
You can actually use butcher block countertops as a cutting board. You can chop vegetables and cut meat right on top of the surface. And it won’t dull your knives.
Chopping on a wooden countertop can leave scratches in its surface over time. For a kitchen cart, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can look distressed rather than just used. And it can also absorb stains. But this is all fixable.
Easy to maintain
Unlike other counter materials, butcher block is very easy to refinish. Just sand and re-oil.
The countertop of this kitchen island is smooth and provides a great surface for various cooking and prepping needs. The drawers have a stainless-steel handle and provide an enclosed space to store your dining utensils.
There are 2 spacious lower shelves which provide several ways to keep your kitchen organized and all of your cooking essentials close at hand. You can also use one or both of them as a wine rack. It includes a towel rack.
Need an even smaller cart? This tiny-but-mighty cart is mostly a butcher block surface with two simple shelves below and a towel rack. It gives you a valuable extra food prep space that can act as a cutting board.
You can also wheel it out of the kitchen or even outside to serve guests. Great for a meat and cheese board served on your deck or patio.
