As some of you may know, we are putting a new kitchen into our home. Having already decided on white cupboard drawers and fronts, I started to look at worktops.

I love how wooden worktops add warmth, and transcend both time and trends. As with all natural materials as long as they are well looked after, solid wood worktops grow more beautiful with age and nothing can equal its timeless look and natural feel. Now, what wood? Walnut, oak, or bamboo to name a few. As our kitchen leads off of our dining room through french doors the obvious choice wood be oak to match the dining room table, and flooring.

Have a sweet day!


  1. White + wood = perfect match!
    I'd choose a bright, light wood...

  5. Dear Torie Jayne,
    Your new kitchen sounds as if it's going to be beautiful. I love all of the white and, as you say, wood brings warmth. One has so many choices nowadays but, oak will look fantastic. XXXX

    I'm sure whatever you decide will look beautiful, but the white with wood looks marvelous.
