There are many reasons why homeowners are looking into the DIY Wood Kitchen Countertop. The most common reason is that a homeowner needs more counter space. This is especially useful if the current kitchen design uses lots of counter space for chopping, mixing and distributing food. Remodeling a kitchen can be very expensive. So, with a tight budget homeowners want to look into the idea of replacing the existing kitchen countertops with a new one, and the best material they can use is wood.
So lets say you have your heart set on using a wood kitchen countertop. You find some nice looking ones that you think would fit into your kitchen design. You also happen to know that you want to install an 8×4 butcher block in the middle of your kitchen. So now you need to decide which style of wood you want to use to remodel your kitchen.
The main level of any kitchen, especially one with an 8×4 butcher block in it, should have a countertop. A good way to begin deciding what type of countertop to use is by deciding what you will be doing with the rest of the kitchen. If you are planning on entertaining, then you may want to use a stone countertop with a glass door. If you are planning on family days with grills and barbecues, then a wood burning stove would be the best choice, and if you like to host a lot of gatherings, you should consider a heavy duty induction burner.
If you are looking at remodeling your main level, I recommend either subway tile or a reclaimed wood look. Subway tile is really fun. It looks like the stone countertops that are being used in commercial kitchens, and it is a lot cheaper. If you are not much of a designer, you can find a subway tile that is pre-built and have it delivered and installed. There are some really great looking models out there, like a subway tile with an old-world metal facade, and others with a colonial feel to them.
One other thing that subway tile or reclaimed wood does well is that it blends in really well with everything else in the kitchen. Because the material is so versatile, it will match most decors, and you can find a subway tile that has the same color and style in several different rooms. This means that you will not have to buy countertops for every room in the house, and you will be able to make the design work throughout. One nice thing about using reclaimed wood is that you can buy it in different heights, so if you have a tall kid, you do not have to get a taller countertop because of the height difference.
Speaking of kids, the kitchen is probably one of the places in your house coziest place, and that includes your children. And if you want to create a fun space, why not turn that child’s play area into a place for the whole family to gather? Well, there is no better way to do that than to install a white house coop. Not only will you be helping your kids learn how to look after green veggies, they will also get a chance to pretend they are farmers by growing their own vegetables and herbs in a house coop that is made just for them.
The other great thing about doing a this type of remodel is that it is very cheap and easy to do. Since it is basically just an extension of your main level, you can add on extra shelves, cabinets, or even a sink. You would just need to find a builder that specializes in doing fixer-upper house improvements and then hire him for the job. This will not only save you money but will also ensure that the job is done right, since a professional knows what he’s doing.
If you haven’t heard of anyone else fixing up this type of home, there is a YouTube video that just about everyone should look at. In it, there are actually three homeowners who mention that they did this project in less than one week. I know that this is rather impressive because that is some really fast time and effort. However, they all agree that the biggest challenge was making sure that the coop was waterproof and that the windows were attached all the way to make it weatherproof. Now that is what I call having a successful fixing up project. Anyone looking for an idea on how to fix up a dilapidated house should definitely watch these guys.
