Even if I had all the money in the world, I’m still not sure which direction I would go in today’s “Options” feature. Do we go with inexpensive, low-maintenance butcher block countertops, or splurge for the beauty of natural stone?
Option 1: What I love so much about a butcher block counter – aside from the ease of use and upkeep – is the beauty of the wood grain. There’s something endearing about that rustic characteristic that just can’t be believably manufactured. Plus, if you’re going for a modern-meets-traditional look, this is an easy way to achieve it when paired with mod white cabinets and sleek hardware.
Option 2: And yet…There’s absolutely no denying that the shiny, pristine surface of marble is something to consider. It’s gorgeous and looks so high end. Do you think it’s worth the fuss though? Sometimes I think that granite is a bit overrated, but the moment I lay eyes on it, I can’t help but feel like life is a little more luxurious.
