Black American Walnut: Ideal for your Home!Aug 29
Most people are familiar with the extremely popular European walnut, but what about its mysterious cousin, black American walnut? A staple of the Worktop Express® range (available in both standard and full stave variations), black walnut is much darker in hue than its European counterpart but still brings the same warmth.
The timber is also bang-on trend. Where a couple of years ago fashion favoured rustic, natural finishes — oak cabinets, oak worktops, oak upstands; light, bright, organic — we’re now seeing a shift towards chocolate woods and painted cabinetry. Indeed, one of the most popular displays from our own showroom pairs black walnut worktops with delicate green cabinets (the exact shade is Farrow & Ball’s ‘Mizzle’ — the colour for this season).
You can also catch a stunning example of Worktop Express® black American walnut in an upcoming edition of Ideal Home (available from first week of October). Our worktops feature in one of their fantastic ‘reader’ kitchen pieces, providing unique insight into the home design choices made by a Worktop Express® customer and the glorious results.
Be it in Ideal Home or through a customer’s candid snaps, we’re always delighted to see our worktops in situ. If you have any pictures you’re willing to share with us, please don’t hesitate! We’d love to see how your new worktops have helped bring your kitchen style dream to life.
