Walnut worktops buying guide
Introduction to Walnut worktops
Welcome to this Walnut worktop buying guide, designed to provide you with the essential info you need before making a purchase. We understand that it can be tricky to decide what will look right in your kitchen before it gets there, but we hope our descriptions and your good taste will work in harmony to decide on the joyful tones of the Walnut worktop.
The aesthetic properties of the Walnut worktop are much appreciated by those in the design-know. Because walnut comes in a variety of hues, from an airier light shade through to a richer, more luxurious chocolate tone, it suits any space or style.
For those who prefer their wood to have a more uniform grain, the European walnut wood is perfect, allowing a neat, regular look, ideal for smaller spaces where the tone takes centre place. But for those who prefer a more care-free design, the Tiger walnut wood, like its namesake, has a striped pattern that really brings your choice of wood to life.
As walnut has a medium shine and mid-scale texture it is perfectly suited for any kitchen worktop as it can be dressed up or down depending on what statement you want your kitchen to make. With walnut wood, the growth rings are often visible, making a walnut worktop a great option for a natural feel that really shows off your decision to buy wood rather than a perfunctory, less tactile option. Walnut has decay resistant properties and just needs an occasional bit of upkeep to keep it at its best. It’s a favourite of those who make worktops because of its durability when being glued, cut, or stained, although it’s not usually stained because it’s already such a beautiful wood.
Our Walnut worktops are offered with different size credentials to make sure they’re a perfect for you and your kitchen.

Walnut worktop accessories
When you order your Walnut wood worktop you can also choose worktop accessories of upstands, edge details, and return ends and cut-outs.
An Upstand is an extra bit of wood that flows from the flat surface of the worktop to provide an extra bit of backing against your wall, allowing you to show off more of your excellent worktop taste!
The Edge Details are simply the cut of the edge of your worktop. There are a variety of options from the more slender to minimise space usage right through to some lovely thicker or layer-shaped options to match a specific pre-existing style in your kitchen or just to display more of the gorgeous Walnut wood.
Your Return Ends are the swoop of the ends of your worktop, and they come in different types of cut, ranging from a slick angular shape to a smooth curved version.
Cut-out options are your specifications of where the Walnut worktop needs to be pre-cut to ensure a perfect fit with your kitchen essentials such as the sink and oven top.
