Gourmet Kitchen in Two-tone Painted Linen and Harbor Gray

DaytonPainted Linen

This open kitchen gives the chef all the tools and working space needed to put on a feed for guests. The open design invites family and friends to gather round the center island while keeping them out from underfoot.

Traditional Shaker cabinets painted in a creamy linen color provide a warm yet bright perimeter. Creative use of accessories including crown molding, ogee trim, bump outs and decorative end panels on the island and cabinet ends transform simple cabinets into elegant furniture features. A large built-in wine rack is the central feature of the buffet next to the refrigerator. The refrigerator sits neatly in a custom surround, created by pulling the over-refrigerator cabinet forward. The same wall houses a built-in convection microwave, close at hand to the 8-burner double oven professional gas range. A crisp modern stainless range hood and wall of small tiles completes the hearth zone.

The island, built of gray cabinets and topped with butcherblock countertop, is a furniture-look segue into the dining and living areas. Island seating consists of industrial rustic stools, and the island is lit by glass and black metal pendants.

    I like the above kitchen – I only need an island and the butcher block seems like a good idea. How durable is it and will it ruin over the years of use? Please give me some ideas. My email address is below. hope to hear back from you.

      Hi Ellie. Butcher block tops are durable, cost-effective, and certainly unique. They can be lovely as a dedicated space to prepare food, and if you treat them well, won’t get easily ruined.

      Like any natural material, a butcher block top will need some maintenance to keep it clean and cared for. But unlike a granite top, which only needs to be resealed once every 3-5 years, a butcher block top will want quick cleaning and regular oiling in order to prevent warping and cracking.

      Over time, the butcher block will pick up surface stains and scratches. The imperfections give the counter a unique character but can also be removed. A razor blade and some sandpaper will work for that. Take a look at this guide from Houzz to learn more about what it takes to maintain a butcher block top. If it all sounds like too much effort, then you might want to consider a different surface for your island.
