Wood countertops are naturally beautiful in their simplest form, but when designed with a more decorative eye they are any room’s best feature. Decorative wood countertops take many forms at Grothouse.
Designs with Decorative Wood Countertops
Because our wood countertops are custom crafted to your design specifications, they can be designed for the most elegant of spaces, or designed for the most tranquil of spaces.
We recently introduced our Anvil™ line of metal finishes. Matthew Quinn designed a custom Walnut wood table embellished with our Magnum metal finish for House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year 2016. You can embellish your wood countertop with any of our eight Anvil metal finishes.
You can also design your wood countertop to be completely gilded in one of our Anvil metal finishes. Matthew Quinn also designed a White Oak Rift Sawn Blank countertop gilded in our Argentum metal finish for House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year 2016.
Designers often choose to have the countertop distressed or hand planed to add character and worn-in charm. Wood-Mode Inc. designed the below Sapele Mahogany wood countertop to be super distressed. Super distressing means that the countertop is very heavily distressed with very unevenly worn corners and edges. It also has plentiful dings and notch marks, clusters of worm holes, waffle hammer dings and circular dings, heavy edge nicks, and possibly termite tracks.
Any of our edge profiles can also be used to create decorative wood countertops. The most lavish profiles include: Rhine, Rugen, Charmant, Krone, Super Double Roman Ogee with a Notch, and El Guapo.
Grothouse can also add a faux live edge to your countertop to mimic a real live edge countertop. S & W Kitchens Inc. designed this Tigerwood countertop to include one faux live edge.
Choose a real live edge countertop to make the most opulent statement. Christopher Peacock designed this English Wych Elm countertop to be the center of attention in the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
