Why a walnut worktop works for kitchen makeovers


If you’re having a new kitchen fitted, you may be considering a number of different styles and kitchen worktops can make or break the overall finish. At House of Worktops, we have a wide range of wooden worktops and a walnut worktop is one of our most popular lines. With a wooden worktop, you can expect certain qualities – durability, resilience, hard-wearing and hygienic. What you might not be expecting is that Walnut is ranked as one of the most timeless finishes and its roots offer valuable material for creating high-end accessories. Find out more about the wonders of walnut below.

Wood and walnut

Wood has natural antibacterial properties and this is why it can make an obvious choice for a kitchen worktop. Alongside this, it is hard-wearing and naturally made to last a lifetime. Wooden worktops complement most colour schemes and styles of kitchen, so it is a much-loved choice for many customers, suiting most people’s tastes. Walnut worktops are dense thanks to coming from plantations to the workshop with 80% of its roots. This structure makes it particularly strong, right behind oak! Our Walnut is sourced from the Black Sea region and is identifiable by its wavy pattern and dark colour. It is also used for many high-end furniture pieces and will offer a classic and affluent finish to your home. Not only that, but its pattern is lively and every stave has its own story to tell and will keep your imagination running wild while you boil the kettle or reach for a glass of red and nibbles.
