    hi there, it's a porcelain tile we source direct from a trade supplier. Many flooring specialists would carry a similar tile - have a look at Ca'Pietra

    hi there, this was the client's piece. I think they source it at a french antiques market so a one off!

Maximise a butcher’s blockA traditional piece of kitchen equipment, the humble butcher’s block makes an excellent freestanding island unit, especially if you find a design with a storage shelf underneath like this one.Vintage models with a well-worn surface add real character to a new kitchen, but these can be quite large, so if space is really tight, you might be able to find a new block that’s a little more compact. Several of these smaller units are on wheels, too, so can be moved into the centre of the room as needed then tucked away close to the wall when not in use.Shop kitchen islands and units on Houzz.

Slot in a butcher’s blockA wooden butcher’s block makes a flexible, affordable and compact ‘mini island’ when space is tight. As well as providing an extra surface for prepping and chopping, it will add buckets of traditional character. Make sure you maintain yours properly, however, so it stays hygienic. Wash it regularly with soap and water, and oil it every few months so the wood stays in good shape, sanding back scrapes and cuts beforehand if necessary.

Choose a classic pieceThis traditional butcher’s block sits centrally in this kitchen. The thick wood, braced with metal brackets, makes it an enduring piece. Positioned in the middle of the room, it functions as a workstation, table and, of course, chopping board.Do you have room for a kitchen island or butcher’s block?

Invest in a portable kitchen islandA central workspace can instantly turn a cold kitchen into a homely space. Not all kitchen islands are built in, and there are plenty of portable ideas available. The large butcher’s block in this kitchen gives it a farmhouse look, and adds an extra worktop where the cook can prepare food while chatting to guests and family. The prices and sizes of kitchen islands range enormously, so if you hunt around you’ll find something for any kitchen and budget. Try browsing eBay for interesting alternatives, or look out for open-shelved sideboards or high tables. Just like the freestanding units, an island is something you can take with you when you move.
