Butcher Block Kitchen Islands

The convenience and functionality of a butcher block kitchen island makes it a fitting choice for a number of kitchen spaces.

While a butcher block top is often accompanied by a maple, walnut, cherry or other wood bottom, the kitchen island can also be paired with stainless steel or wire shelving. Many models are fairly modest with a few shelves and a small drawer being the extent of the design. However, some butcher block kitchen islands are larger, leaving room for a cabinet or two, and small accessories, like a towel rack or hooks for large utensils.

Some do-it-yourself options for butcher block islands are made from a repurposed dresser or nightstand. These furniture items are often repainted to suit the design of the kitchen and topped with a functional wood surface.

Perhaps one of the most useful aspects of this kitchen island style is its ability to be easily moved. The average butcher block kitchen island is freestanding or on wheels, making it the perfect choice for a room where it might need to be pushed out of the way to allow for more moving space within a kitchen area.
