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.

Kitchen Island Bar Ideas

An extremely popular design in today’s homes are kitchen islands that include a bar seating area. Grothouse wood surfaces are often used for kitchen islands. This is because wood is a warm, relaxing material – and much better for eating breakfast and drinking a cup of coffee on a cold morning than stone or concrete. Wood is also very kind to fine china and other tableware. Most designers incorporate the wood surface as the entire kitchen island top, although some designers choose to only use the wood surfaces for the bar seating area. Here are some kitchen island bar ideas for inspiration.

Libby Mullin designed this kitchen to have an island with two Walnut wood countertops. One countertop is for the lower level of the kitchen island, which can be used for a food preparation space. The other countertop is raised creating a bar seating area. This clever design takes advantage of every available inch of the island space.

Design by Braam’s Custom Cabinetry

Braam’s Custom Cabinetry designed this kitchen with two islands. The kitchen island shown in this image exhibits how wood and marble can be united for an overall beautiful appearance. The raised wood kitchen bar allows for a comfortable seating area. Since wood is a warmer material than marble, it naturally lightens the feel of the kitchen.

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.
