An integrated cutting board is a portion of butcher block that is integrated into the overall countertop design and layout.
The resilience of a wood butcher block makes it a great surface for cutting and chopping. One more advantage you should know about: butcher blocks can be made in any shape or size. As a custom block of wood, you can integrate it into any kitchen design.
Check out the butcher block countertops featured in the Houzz slideshow below –especially the last photo. (We are partial to that one because it’s our handiwork!) The entire island surface is an integrated cutting board!
This island countertop was a special request from our client. She’s an avid cook/baker and loves her integrated cutting and food prep surface.
