The kitchen island is going to be the heart of the kitchen. I want people to sit and chat, enjoy a glass of wine and just feel at home. I wanted something different from the laminate that will be on the counter but of course budget was a huge factor in choosing what we wanted. So after some shopping around we decided to go with this Ikea butcher block for $269
But…then we found “this guy” on Kijiji who makes custom-built butcher block counter tops. I was very intrigued and we got some info from him and the cost is about double the Ikea counter but I’m wondering if it would be worth it?? The sample custom piece picture is below. Which one do you think we’ll get?
