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.
