Wood Countertops Don’t Just Look Good – They Perform
Wood countertops have a timeless appearance that can fit in almost any kitchen, regardless of design. Even modern looking kitchens can take advantage of custom edging, widths, and finishes that will perfectly match or compliment their surroundings. But wood countertops don’t just look good—they perform incredibly well under heavy use. Here are the pros and cons of wood countertops. They are:
- Incredibly quiet when pans or plates are placed on them. You won’t get the banging you hear from stone or solid surface counters.
- Naturally resistant to bacteria when sealed, and make a great surface for food preparation and eating.
- Ridiculously durable. You can place hot pans on them or use sharp knives on them. Any scratches or stains can be rubbed with mineral oil to disguise, or sanded out.
But, you should keep in mind that any standing liquids should be wiped up immediately, and that you will need to oil your wood countertop periodically to maximize its life (which can be decades if properly maintained!)

What Are Butcher Block Countertops?
Butcher block countertops are created by gluing strips of wood together. They initially became popular with butchers (hence the name) and have since found their way into countless homes across the Maryland, DC, Virginia area. Their popularity as a kitchen countertop has grown because of their ability to hide scratches more than solid piece wood. This makes them an amazing surface to do prep work on—including cutting. In fact, you probably have a butcher’s block cutting board sitting in your cupboard right now. And that’s not to mention their attractive checkerboard appearance, which can be as pronounced or subtle as you choose.
