Create breathing room in just 5 minutes
So, we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel right now and I have been obsessing over picking the right countertops. Stone, wood, resin, cement, the list of possible materials is a mile long!
Knowing the pros and cons of various materials, and my lack of interest in the high maintenance, all reasoning was thrown out the window when I came across this photo by Vallone Design in Scottsdale, AZ.
I absolutely LOVE the warmth that the butcher block brings to the kitchen and the elegance the marble perimeter provides! The dark color also lends a timeless appeal in line with the marble. But alas, keeping a butcher block warp and ring free is not something I want to lose sleep over at night.
What I would like to know is, with all the benefits of products such as quartz, how many of you have, or still like, the butcher block concept? Do you think they add character?
