Out of Curiosity:: Wood Countertops in a Bathroom?

I have to tell you, I am completely enamored of wood countertops. When I got my butcherblock countertops in my kitchen, I had never experienced wood countertops before. I knew I liked the look, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy actually having them.

Well, I do. In fact, I love them so much that I would highly recommend using wood countertops anywhere in the home–kitchen, bathroom…ANYWHERE. And they come in all shapes and forms, whether it’s a butcherblock countertops, or reclaimed barn wood, or a piece of furniture that’s been retrofitted to accommodate a sink and faucet. The possibilities are endless.

I know wood is probably the last thing that people think of when thinking about countertops for bathrooms, but it just adds so much character and warmth. It’s also incredibly versatile, and can fit almost any style.

So now I want to know…

  1. I like the look of wood but am concerned with the sanitation aspect of it in the kitchen…

  2. Kristi- I am so with you. I want them everywhere. I am glad to here you are enjoying them in your kitchen. It is one of the upgrades we are wanting to make in our kitchen, along with the farm house sink. Oh I can't wait for that day. 🙂

  3. Cathi, if they're sealed properly, then the sanitation aspect shouldn't be an issue. They're every bit as sanitary as Formica…again, if they're sealed properly.

    Laurie, I LOVE the look of a farmhouse sink with butcherblock countertops!!!! If only I had the money. 🙂

  4. My concern would be that it is sealed real good. Do you have any problem with say water circles if a glass of cold water sweats on it and is left there for a long time? I hate to see glasses left sitting on wood furniture, leaving a circle that sometimes cannot be removed. Do wood countertops do that, too? Or maybe you are so neat that things are never left long enough for that. I'm not.

  5. Wood tops have been a favorite forever on tables, so why not counters! I conquer with all of the above comments, the sealant is key 🙂 it's truly a beautiful concept!! Love you blog 🙂

  6. Style Attic, you hit the nail on the head. If it's sealed properly, you shouldn't have a problem.

    Jennie, I am the absolute extreme opposite of "neat". 🙂 But no, I don't have a problem with water or glasses on my countertops. I sealed it quite well.

  7. I have butcherblock countertops in my kitchen, and I can assure you, sealing them was easy, and the finish is durable and long lasting. All you need is Waterlox.

  9. Wood is a fine countertop choice, but personally, granite or soapstone may be better for bathrooms. It compliments that atmosphere a little better.
