In the past, walnut wood was one of the most luxury materials in wooden industry. Nowadays, this wood is more and more popular in wooden furniture and a favourite choice for installing kitchen cabinets. However, this does not mean that all of us know about it, especially advantages.

All about walnut wood

Being a hardwood, walnut is a extremely tough, and this ensures longevity in any pieces of furniture made with it. It’s a great choice particularly for more complex pieces such as mantelpieces and intricate headboards. If cared for properly, it will last a lifetime and beyond.
The grain of walnut wood is characteristically straight, and many favour this uniform look in their furniture. The straight grain retains that traditional look and feel but with a somewhat ‘neater’ appearance to it. In fact, the striking appearance of walnut makes it a very popular choice as a veneer for other types of wood furniture where a solid walnut piece is out of budget.

Walnut boasts a variety of colours that range from light to a very deep, almost black, brown. The darker colours tend to be more popular for formal pieces of furniture, such as dining tables and kitchen cabinets. Unlike many other woods, that require some type of staining to bring out the vibrancy of the natural colour, walnut needs only a clear protective varnish, as the colours are naturally bold. However, it does take stain extremely well, so should you prefer to slightly alter the tone of the wood, it’s certainly an option. It’s also something to bear in mind for the coming years should your walnut kitchen cabinets lighten due to general sun exposure and ageing. Staining can bring your beloved pieces back to their former deep, dark glory.

Another significant benefit of walnut wood is how resilient it is to environmental changes. It doesn’t shrink or swell easily, as other woods can, when conditions such as humidity, change. It also resists liquids like water well, so spilled drinks and the like, aren’t going to leave a mark, provided they are mopped up in good time.
