Butcher Block Countertop Installation

Everything You Want in Your Luxury Kitchen

Butcher block countertops are made from thick strips of wood, glued together to create a solid surface, then sanded and sealed for durability. Almost any type of wood can be used for butcher block counters, and they’re a wonderful option for kitchen remodels. Contractors at William French Home Improvements offers an eclectic range of options to complement the look and feel of yourany home. If you plan to upgrade your countertops, call the Dallas kitchen remodel contractors at William French Home Improvements. We offer butcher block and other materials for luxury countertop installations.

Butcher Block Countertops: A Classic Choice with a Refined Look

While our kitchen remodel contractors can install butcher block countertops made from multiple species of wood, generally, we recommend going with hardwoods. They tend to last longer and prove more durable for cooking and cleaning than softer woods.

One of the perks of choosing butcher block counters is that they can be refinished over the years, meaning they can endure for generations. Butcher block countertops are also a great choice for environmentally-conscious buyers interested in using reclaimed wood. For an eco-friendly choice that provides a warm aesthetic and comes in an array of attractive colors and styles, butcher block counters are a wise choice.

Advantages of Butcher Block Countertops

  • Great for baking and food prep: If you love to cook and bake, butcher block countertops are an ideal choice. They hide scratches from cutting very well and may prove an easier surface to assemble ingredients on than a slippery stone countertop.
  • Easy to touch-up: While other countertops may require replacement after a certain period of time, you can basically keep resealing and sanding your butcher block countertops indefinitely.
  • Match with multiple kinds of décor: From cabinets to flooring, there aren’t many areas in your home that butcher block countertops won’t complement. Because wood comes in various shades, it’s easy to match their tone and hue with existing features.
  • Durable and not difficult to clean: Butcher block counters don’t suffer from the kind of cracking or chipping that countertops of other materials can experience. If they are well-maintained and cleaned, they can look great year after year.
  • Added character: While the average butcher block countertop should be periodically oiled and cleaned, you can decide how often to practice this maintenance. While some prefer to keep their countertops in perfect condition forever, others find that a little wear and tear adds character. After all, it’s not difficult to refurbish butcher block counters, so why not treat them as you like?

How to Clean Butcher Block Countertops

One of the many benefits of a butcher block countertop is that it is quite simple to clean.

To properly clean your butcher block countertops, we recommend that you do the following:

  • Scrub the countertop: First, remove everything from the countertop that you’re cleaning, including scraping off any caked-on dirt and sweeping away all crumbs and debris. Next, put a few drops of dish soap onto a sponge and scrub the entire surface, making sure that you’re going with the grain of the countertop for more successful cleaning. To rinse the soap from the countertop, first rinse the sponge with water and then use it to wipe your countertop clean.
  • Apply white vinegar: While wiping down your counter with soap will clean it, it will not entirely disinfect it. We recommend using white vinegar. Simply pour some white vinegar onto a clean towel and wipe the entirety of your countertop with it. Make sure you let the vinegar sit for 15 minutes before wiping it away.
  • Wipe with salt and lemon juice: If you have any stubborn spots on the surface, salt and lemon juice works wonders. Simply mix one cup of lemon juice with a half a cup of salt. Then use a sponge to rub the paste-like mixture onto the surface of the countertop. In addition to helping remove any spots, this solution will also help with disinfecting.
  • Remove the excess salt: Once the countertop has dried, use a clean towel to wipe away the excess salt and then enjoy your freshly cleaned countertop.
