1 in 4 Homeowners Combine Kitchen Countertop Materials

According to Houzz, 1 in 4 homeowners combine two or more kitchen countertop materials when renovating their kitchens. Custom wood countertops are often paired with marble, engineered quartz, quartzite, granite and metal countertops. A popular design choice is to include a wood countertop in a food preparation area while using a metal or stone countertop for perimeter countertops. Another design used often is to select a stone, like marble or quartz, for the kitchen island countertop and select a wood countertop for the seating area.

Design Inspiration for Mixing Kitchen Countertop Materials

Taking ques from some of the best designers in the industry, here is some design inspiration for mixing kitchen countertop materials.

Combining Zinc and White Oak Wood Kitchen Countertop Materials

For this traditional chef kitchen with two kitchen islands, Venegas and Company, Boston chose a Zinc countertop for the seating area as well as a White Oak wood countertop for the food preparation work space. Photography by Michael J Lee.

Combining Persa Avorio Leathered Granite and Wenge Wood Kitchen Countertop Materials

Persa Avorio Leathered Granite countertops were chosen for the perimeter countertops and kitchen island. Designer Kate Connolly of Homestead Kitchens then selected a Wenge butcher block for the kitchen island end. The butcher block creates a perfect food preparation work space and adds a layer of texture to the kitchen.

Combining Polished Marble and Zebrawood Kitchen Countertop Materials

Anvil™ Argentum Countertops

The Anvil™ Argentum finish imitates the look of real nickel silver countertops. Argentum countertops are identical to nickel silver countertops in look, while embracing the benefits of wood countertops. Argentum countertops are warm to the touch. They are not limited to size or shape, and can be used for complex designs and curved applications unlike real metal countertops.

The Argentum finish can be applied to any wood specie or a composite substrate. When applied to a composite substrate, the countertop can be used in outdoor applications. Countertops with the Argentum finish may include a Durata® overcoat.

Designs with Argentum Nickel Silver Countertops

Argentum Nickel Silver countertops were recently featured in the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2016 designed by Matthew Quinn. Grothouse crafted a Rift Cut White Oak wood bar top with Argentum metal finish. The Argentum finish was applied to show the texture and grain of the wood. The bar top includes an overcoat of our exclusive Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish.

Kitchen Wood Bar Tops

Grothouse crafts kitchen wood bar tops to fit any style space, whether you strive to achieve a classic, traditional look or a more modern style design.

Kitchen Wood Bar Tops | Design Considerations

When designing a custom kitchen wood bar top there are several generally accepted guidelines that can help you ensure that the finished product will meet your expectations:

• Typical bar height is 42-inches from the floor to the bar surface. Bar stool average height is 30-inches.
• A section of the bar should be 30″ above the finished floor to accommodate wheel chairs if desired. Back bar tops are generally the same height as the front bar, but can vary.
• Home bar tops are usually between 12- to 16-inches wide. Commercial bar tops vary from 20- to 28-inches in width, including a drink rail (or trough) on the server side of the bar. Drink rails are typically 3/4-inch deep by 4-inches wide.
• The minimum bar top thickness is 1 3/4-inches utilizing a flat grain wood. Increased thicknesses are available using a built-up assembly or other construction styles, such as edge grain.
• The front overhang for the patron side of the bar is typically 6- to 12-inches if you intend to have bar stools. For a standing-only bar, 6- or 9-inch overhangs are comfortable.
• Allow 22- to 24-inches of space per person.

Build Ambiance with Commercial Wood Surfaces

Build Ambiance with Commercial Wood Surfaces for Restaurants and Bars
Build Ambiance with Commercial Wood Surfaces

Grothouse commercial wood surfaces are the perfect addition for evoking comfort and building ambiance at any bar or restaurant.  Wood surfaces are a naturally warm material – much warmer than plastic, metal, or stone surfaces. Wood also absorbs sound and helps quiet a room full of guests, creating a more intimate atmosphere. Its forgiving nature avoids accidental chips to fine china and stemware, and its beauty helps you spare the expense of weekly linen service.

Commercial Wood Surfaces

Most Grothouse Commercial Wood Surfaces for restaurants and bars are finished with Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish, a proven finish that withstands the wear and tear of commercial environments. It’s maintenance free finish leaves treated surfaces completely waterproof. Water left on the surface dries with no water rings. Red wine, vinegar, alcohol, soaps and coffee will not affect the finish.  Want to see our Durata® finish in action?  Perilla Restaurant, 9 Jones Street New York features Grothouse tables with Durata® finish that have been used continuously since 2007.

Catelli Duo is a restaurant and wine bar in Voorhees, New Jersey that features Grothouse Live Edge and Walnut Wood Tables.

Ash is the New Black

Ash Wood Countertops by Grothouse
Ash is the New Black

At Grothouse Lumber, we are seeing a resurgence of Ash Wood Countertops being specified by commercial and residential clients alike. It was always a personal favorite of Denise Grothouse. The tone is similar to Maple, but is has a more pronounced grain and hence, character. Additionally, it is a domestic wood and therefore properly managed and harvested within the United States. It takes stain beautifully and is wonderful for our craftsmen to work, sand, and finish.

Ash Commercial Bars and Restaurants

It is a desirable wood for commercial bars. It is much harder than Walnut and Teak and will resist dents and dings. In fact, the most commonly known product of Ash is baseball bats. The client below asked us to custom turn Ash dowels to fit in the brass elephant hooks. See it in person at Brittingham’s Irish Pub & Restaurant in Lafayette Hill, PA.

Maple Wood Countertops | Customer Review

Grothouse has received numerous amounts of positive Customer Reviews regarding Maple Wood Countertops. Bob and Kathy from Boca Raton, Florida designed this Traditional Kitchen and included Grothouse Maple Wood Countertops.

“Denise, Thanks for the kind words! We’d be honored to be included among the beautifully crafted examples in your gallery of work. My wife Kathy and I have operated a home personalizing business in South Florida for almost 40 years and are now in the process of retiring. She’s waited 25 years for her “House Captains kitchen” but fortunately we’ve been too busy to spare the people to take care of our own needs. It’s been such fun showing off the new maple counter tops and watching people feel and “pet” the incredibly smooth finish of our Grothouse tops. As soon as we decide whether to use leaded glass compositions or pewter lattice over clear class in the three open upper cabinet doors we’ll have some better photography to pass along to you. We are absolutely thrilled with the superb quality of the products you delivered to us.”

Below is a picture of Bob and Kathy’s kitchen. Grothouse is honored to receive such a wonderful review and to be included in their House Captains kitchen.
