Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops radiate in rich, rustic charm. The wood exhibits an extremely unique character from hundreds of years of weathering. This look is nearly impossible to reproduce. Reclaimed Oak is also commonly referred to as Antique Oak.

Using Reclaimed Oak for your countertop is an environmental contribution because it is a recycled material. The reclaimed oak wood used by Grothouse to craft wood countertops is from dismantled antique Pennsylvania Barns. Each wood board is inspected and carefully juxtaposed to create a visually pleasing surface.

Designing Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops

Countertops crafted in Reclaimed Oak make a naturally stunning focal point in any space. While Reclaimed Oak countertops can be custom crafted for any style kitchen, we typically see them in country, rustic, and farmhouse style kitchens.

Gray Cabinets with Wood Countertops

Gray Cabinets with Wood Countertops

Gray cabinets in kitchens are nothing short of classic, elegant, and timeless – no matter the kitchen style. To keep gray from looking too dreary, designers often pair the cabinets with a warm material like a wood countertop or butcher block. Wood countertops and butcher blocks add warmth and texture to the cool tones of gray kitchens.

Wood Countertops for Farmhouse Style Kitchens

Farmhouse style kitchens can take many forms — from dressy and elegant, simple and modern, rustic and primitive, French or American. There are, however, a few must-have elements that a design requires in order to give it that farmhouse feel.

Farmhouse kitchen designs are unpretentious and tend to incorporate mostly natural, organic materials. Kitchens are also typically designed to accommodate cooking large meals. It is for all of these reasons — and many more — that wood countertops are included in farmhouse kitchen designs.

According to HGTV, high quality woods are often the first choice for seating and dining options in farmhouse kitchens. Tables are often classic wood “farm tables”—long planks of oak or other high-quality woods fitted closed and sturdily together. Wood countertops have been crafted of all different species, shapes, and sizes for farmhouse kitchens.

Sarah Kahn Turner of Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath designed this farmhouse kitchen to include a large Walnut kitchen island top. The Walnut wood top is complimented by the rough hewn texture of the wood beam atop the range hood.

A Reclaimed Oak wood countertop gives this new kitchen designed by Monica Miller of J.S. Brown & Co. charisma beyond its youthful age. The farmhouse look is accomplished through floating shelves that compliment the wood countertop, white subway tile, a vintage super market sign, and decorative letter wall decor.

Wenge Butcher Block designed by Homestead Kitchens

Our Custom Wood Countertops Blog features the industry’s most talented and innovative designers throughout the United States and abroad. This featured kitchen includes a Wenge Butcher Block designed by Kate Connolly of Homestead Kitchens.

Kate Connolly of Homestead Kitchens

About the Designer: Kate Connolly is an interior designer, mother of 2 little girls, aspiring yogi and art lover. She has been designing kitchens professionally for 20 years, collaborating with clients in suburban New England. Kate loves piecing together client’s wish lists into functional spaces making their everyday life easier; playing with colors and textures creating a cohesive space that her clients feel at home in. Kate and her husband, Kevin, opened their business, Homestead Kitchens, twelve years ago. They work together with wonderful employees in a beautiful 1904 house where every room is filled with inspirational kitchens.

A Tip from Kate: Think about how you want the room to feel whether it’s formal/fancy, clean/uncluttered, fresh/modern/trendy or warm/comfortable. Then create a focal point by letting one or two items stand out (in this kitchen it is the tile backsplash and the Wenge butcher block).

Additional Comments and Advice: The clients wanted to omit the kitchen table and have a large island with seating for informal family meals and entertaining. To avoid a seam on the island, we opted for a gorgeous Grothouse Wenge butcher block top at one end. It was not only practical (the perfect spot for food prep), but adds another layer of texture and interest to this mostly monotone kitchen.
