We are very proud to announce that our superb range of worktops – all of which are ideal for solid wood kitchens – has greatly expanded this week, with 2 new wood species added to the collection in the form of ash worktops and black oak worktops. These two worktops couldn’t look more different, but both have unique qualities that make them an excellent choice for modern and traditional kitchen settings.
Our new ash worktops are made of brightly-coloured European ash, which is not only hard wearing but also possesses great aesthetic appeal: like a lighter version of oak, but with a finer grain pattern. The grain is largely straight, but does feature some interesting curly formations that add extra character to the worktop surface.
The other new option, our black oak worktops, are – as the name suggests – a darker form of our oak worktops. Made from the same high-quality European oak as is used for our standard oak worktops, black oak is subjected to a special treatment process which darkens the wood throughout the full depth of the worktop, creating a darker and more luxurious surface that is a great alternative to wenge or black American walnut worktops.
As well as these two new species, we have also added a range of Deluxe worktops, including popular species such as oak, iroko, zebrano and both types of walnut. These Deluxe worktops feature considerably wider 90mm staves that serve to better show off the elegant colour and grain of our natural timbers.
Finally, we have also added a few new full stave species to our worktop collection: full stave wenge, full stave zebrano and full stave ash. These beautiful new worktops feature staves up to 90mm wide that run the full length of the worktop – as lavish as it gets, and sure to be a stunning centrepiece in any kitchen!
To see any of our worktops up close, we invite you to order one of our worktop samples for just £5 including delivery. Each sample is cut from existing worktop stock and oiled on one side to give you a good representation of the finished product.
