Wooden kitchen worktops, otherwise known as butcher blocks, not only provide a useful station for cutting and chopping, but also provide an elegant, natural accent to your kitchen. Kitchen worktops are generally cut to order based on your specified dimensions. They can be installed on single or double unit cabinets, floating cabinets or cabinets that are against the wall. A worktop can also be set next to a laminate or tile counter top, as long as the counter top has a finished side edge. With a few basic materials, a wooden kitchen worktop can be easily installed on your own.
