Warm and natural and absolutely earthy, butcher block countertops in the kitchen are a popular choice for serious chefs, historic/period homes, and really anyone who loves wood’s natural warmth and beauty in the kitchen.
Here’s how you can figure out the right height for each area: prep surfaces need to be 3”-4” below the elbow so you can easily and comfortably chop, slice and dice. The cooking surfaces need to be 5”-6” below the elbow to avoid splashing hot oil at face level. Then there are also the low-level surfaces such as the area you use for rolling dough or kneading bread. These should be 8” below the elbow.
Not all counters are alikeIf you want a multi-height counter, you can differentiate the functions by using different materials or colorsThere are various different ways of making multi-height counters workL-shaped designs are a practical option and they also help delineate the functions in the roomThe height of the counter often also dictates the distance between the counter and upper cabinets.
