The Ultimate Combination of Beauty and Brawn

Walnut Counters with Cove Edges are the ultimate combination of beauty and brawn – a strong, durable wood complete with a bashful edge profile. We have seen this combination used time and time again in different style kitchens. This combination is one of the preferred choices of leading design professionals worldwide, especially for white kitchens. Kitchen styles including this combination vary from traditional to transitional and even modern.

Walnut wood counters are naturally rich in textural details and produces a large variety of figure types. Walnut is a prized wood that is noted for its beautiful grain and warm, chocolaty brown color. The sapwood in Walnut varies in color from white and yellow-brown.

The Cove edge profile is a simple edge profile that is typically selected for the top horizontal edges of counters. Not only is it bashfully beautiful, but the Cove edge profile is also very easy to keep clean. In order for a countertop to include a Cove edge, it must be at least 1-1/2 inches thick.
