My latest obsession is something you might not expect… cutting boards! I like them better for aesthetic reasons than for their functionality- but luckily they’re both. If your kitchen is in need of a little charm and character, prop some well used boards up against your backsplash for warmth and texture. Luckily, cutting boards and serving trays are pretty inexpensive and add a lot stylistically- especially if you’re on a budget. Here’s a giant roundup of my favorites, along with the best new and vintage versions Etsy has to offer…
01: french chopping board // 02: butcher block // 03: teak serving board // 04: weathered wood cutting board // 05: metal and wood cutting board // 06: shaker cutting board // 07: vintage cutting board // 08: large walnut cutting board // 09: exotic wood cutting board // 10: round cheese platter // 11: english oak cutting board // 12: ceramic cheese board // 13: plain paddle cutting board // 14: classic cutting board // 15: round serving board // 16: marble cheese board // 17: minimalist cutting board // 18: hard maple cutting board // 19: wood round cutting board // 20: bamboo cutting board // 21: oak end cutting board // 22: triangle cutting board set // 23: acacia serving board // 24: vintage mid century cutting board // 25: round marble cheese plate // 26: modern cutting board // 27: old french cutting board // 28: rustic english cutting board // 29: edge grain cutting board
I tend to lean toward the organic, vintage options or the softer shaped variations. Regardless of what style you’re into… these really help add depth to your countertop.
Whether you’re looking to style your kitchen with a more ‘lived in’ look, or just need some extra accessories handy for last minute charcuterie (see how I put together a charcuterie board here), this roundup should give you plenty of inspiration in the kitchen. Which ones are you guys gravitating toward? Is there a certain shape? I’m partial to the classic rectangular shape with a handle. The nice thing is, these are surer easy to layer. You can stack two or three different shapes or colors against each other.
Bonus points if you have a floating shelf for a pair of these to live. I might’ve just bought a couple from Etsy. Can you guess which ones?
