Butcher block offers a look that is elegant yet casual and environmentally friendly. Her soft surfaces mean that some maintenance is required, but nothing that will take up any significant amount of time. Cutting should be left to be done on cutting boards. A nice butcher block surface should be sealed and oiled about once a month. Cleanup is easy, requiring simply mild dish detergent and a light cloth or sponge. The only potential negative is that the surface, if not well maintained can dry or crack and excess water should always be wiped off. There are many kinds of woods with varying thicknesses available. Butcher block is another well priced option.
A good general rule for enclosed kitchens is to place it in the center of the room. That way it’s equally accessible from all sides and won’t be an obstacle for people walking through. That placement might not work best for all kitchens, however. A perimeter island, for example, might work better with open floor plans. Size and shape are also determined by room’s layout; Allow for at least 36-48 inches between the perimeter of the island and the surrounding cabinets so there’s enough room for people to move around.
A brightly-colored backsplash would stand out with its bold color and an artistic backsplash would impress on a different level. But if you want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in the kitchen, a brick backsplash is a wonderful idea. The texture and pattern are simple and very popular and a brick backsplash would manage to make the kitchen feel cozy and inviting.
