entry one hundred and thirty six
Greetings fellow timber lovers,
Some days I feel I don’t talk enough about solid wood… but at other times I just can’t help it; after all, this natural material makes for some simply stunning worktop materials.
I was looking over our range of solid wood worktops and thought I’d pick out 6 of our finest examples to feature on this blog, because, honestly: who doesn’t love the sight of a big, beautiful swathe of timber? This element is the crowning touch for all solid wood kitchens, to be sure. Here are my top six – and choosing them was might difficult, let me tell you!
Consistent colour and a beautifully uniform grain make Prime Oak a firm favourite amongst our customers. Oak is a hard-wearing material and in this form it looks absolutely top-drawer in any kitchen – whether modern or traditional.
All the words we use to describe American walnut could equally be used to describe the finest chocolate. It’s dark, rich and incredibly luxurious. Bloomin’ gorgeous in all kitchen settings.
If you’re looking for a sustainable worktop that’s both hard-wearing and inherently water-resistant, our steamed caramel bamboo is the worktop for you. It has a unique grain and looks fabby dabby in a variety of modern kitchen settings.
Lightly coloured, yet incredibly dense, our maple worktops are perfect for a modern kitchen where a hard-wearing worktop is the top priority. The naturally bright sheen is ideal for darker kitchens as it reflects plenty of light back up into your room. Wear your shades if you must, but don’t let this baby pass you by.
Deluxe European Walnut
With a variety of vibrant coloured staves that measure at least 90mm wide, our Deluxe walnut worktops have oodles of character and are an ideal worktop for completing a decedent kitchen theme, whilst still being affordable and extremely hard-wearing.
Full Stave Zebrano
For an opulent centrepiece that will be the talking point in any kitchen, our full stave zebrano hits the spot. 90mm staves run the entire length of the worktop featuring a unique dark ‘zebra’ effect grain against a warm golden backdrop. Fab.
