Back in the 1980’s when I bought my first house, wood counter tops for the kitchen were all the rage. But then the love for wood turned to stone and homeowners opted for marble, granite, and quartz. Now it seems people are gravitating back to the warmth of wood in the kitchen. Some day I’ll update my counter tops to wood. Until then, here’s some kitchen eye candy.
Wood counter tops add warmth to a kitchen and they look great with any color cabinets.
I’m lovin’ all the texture in this kitchen – a brick wall, subway tile, butcher block counters, and beadboard cabinet fronts.
Wood counter tops mimic the rich hardwood floor in this light and airy kitchen. Pops of color add a touch of fun!
Of course, they look perfect in a humble country style kitchen. I think I need to de-clutter my kitchen shelves after seeing this picture.
You can pair wood with any color. And there are a wide variety of wood tones, from light to dark.
I like the drain board to the left of this charming farmhouse sink.
My favorite kitchen designer is deVOL Kitchens and it would be a dream to have them re-do my old kitchen. I know they’d be able to retain its historic charm while improving the flow and appearance.
Wood shelves mimic the wood surface of this kitchen’s island.
Wood counter tops look good in any kitchen – in my humble opinion.
Which do you prefer – wood or stone counter tops in the kitchen?
