Selecting a Butcher Block Kitchen Island

A homeowner who wants more counter and work space in the kitchen may consider a butchers block kitchen island. The island is not only a great way to add significant work space to the room but it can also be helpful because knives can be used directly on the surface. The elimination of cutting boards can lead to having more storage and counter space in the kitchen. Butcher blocks can also add a natural wood look to a kitchen. They can make the kitchen appear more useful and comfortable for guests and kitchen users.

If you know that the island will need to be moved around in the kitchen in order for it to be more accessible, an island with rolling casters may be the best type for your kitchen. An island with rolling casters can also be moved in to a different room. A homeowner who may need extra work space in a craft room or computer room can move the island to the room it is needed in.

A butchers block centre kitchen island that is installed in the center of the kitchen can be appealing for a homeowner who does not want to move the island.

It is also known to be a sturdier island that will stay in the kitchen area. Butcher block kitchen islands that are built in to the kitchen can also later be equipped with kitchen sinks, electrical outlets or stove tops. These accessories cannot be added to a kitchen island that is free-standing.
