would like to have butcher block countertops, already have a new sink which can be undermounted or top mounted - is this a bad idea...where as wood and water aren't compatible? I notice in this picture...there is a piece of stainless steel next to sink...

I am surprised at how practical and intelligently this stainless surface is. I would add to the stainless farther down the counter, over it if possible. create or have made a lip on the outermost surface so all the drain off goes into the sink. A professional would be the one to ask and execute such a plan. I have always liked the groved drain element in any kitchen...that is a purchased (or created) one piece and into the sink. Looks good.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to The Hanging Magic of Kitchen Wall Rail Organization
Like a proper restaurant kitchen, everything is within arm's reach. Knives, pots, salad bowls, etc. There's something pristine about rows of kitchen supplies when they're at home on a wall rail system rather than sprawled on a countertop or stuffed in drawers and on shelves.
Bneato Professional Organizing added this to Show, Don't Store, Your Kitchenware
The mixing bowls here take more of a backseat to the overall look of the kitchen. Again, notice that the chrome shelf matches the items displayed. Can you guess what category I'm going to next suggest to put on view? You're right if you guessed knives. A simple magnetic strip is all you need to free up more drawer space in a cramped kitchen.
