Our free 2Man delivery on worktops must end Monday!

Since the start of the New Year, we have already distributed in excess of 2,000 worktops to customers across England, Wales and Scotland, with the vast majority of orders qualifying for our FREE 2Man delivery offer. There are now just two full days left in which to take advantage of this fantastic saving – so don’t delay if you’re thinking of placing an order!

Our 2Man delivery service is usually priced at £25 for delivery of the first worktop, and £15 for each additional worktop ordered, but until 23:59 on Monday 16th January this service is being offered absolutely free of charge to postcodes within our standard coverage area.

Please note that our 2Man delivery slots are subject to availability, and – although we are continually expanding this service – they often get snapped up very quickly. To avoid disappointment, don’t hesitate to place your order as soon as possible.

If you happen to live in one of our surcharge areas (such as Scotland), we are still able to offer the same level of discount, meaning only the surplus charges will apply.

No discount code is needed to take advantage of this excellent saving – simply pick your desired worktops, worktop accessories and other products, then complete your order at the online checkout to choose a delivery date. Alternatively, get in touch via telephone or email and our sales advisers will automatically apply the free delivery offer to all qualifying orders.

Pinterest is a great platform on which to gather ideas and inspiration for your wood worktops. This list has been put together to showcase the most popular boards on our page.

Prime Oak

It is no surprise that our Prime Oak board is amongst the most popular we have on Pinterest. One of our most commonly-purchased timber types, Prime Oak is a favourite with many due to the quality of the timber and the worktop’s seamless appearance (in this form the staves are specifically chosen for their consistency in colour and grain pattern). Naturally very strong and hardwearing, oak is an easy choice to make when it comes to selecting wood worktops for your home. Want to know more? Our Prime Oak worktops were picked as July’s Worktop of the Month in 2016 – please take a look at our dedicated blog for further details.

Camden Solid Wood Worktops Showroom

Our Camden Showroom opened in August 2016 and has proved a fantastic success thus far. For prospective customers who wish to see our wood worktops in the flesh, a visit to one of our worktop showrooms will provide great insight into what we can offer. We have a number of showrooms dotted around the country, but we also offer a sample service that allows you to see how one of our wooden worktops would look in the comfort of your home.

Caramel Bamboo

Caramel Bamboo is an elegant alternative to our standard bamboo worktops, with a honey-coloured hue that has always proved incredibly popular. As one of the most environmentally-friendly choices we have on offer, bamboo is technically not a wood, but a grass; so not only does it look beautiful, but also makes an excellent conversation starter!

Installing Wooden Worktops

When you order one of our wood worktops, you’ll make a huge saving against comparable products from high-street kitchen retailers. Fitting your own kitchen can mean further savings, so it makes sense that our board about Installing Wooden Worktops is so frequently visited. We offer a range of installation accessories, too, allowing you to order everything you need to fit your worktop at the same time as purchasing your surfaces.

Customer Kitchens

Finding out how other people have integrated their wood worktops into kitchens, bathrooms, and offices is a great way to get inspired. Our Customer Kitchens Pinterest board features a variety of examples in a range of different settings, providing a clearer view of our fitted worktops – and the beautiful, functional aesthetics that can be achieved with them!

You can find all these boards and plenty more on Pinterest. Remember, too, that if you’d like your kitchen to be featured in our ‘Customer Kitchens’ gallery, please do share your pictures with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Start the New Year by Sampling Our Kitchen Surfaces

In 2016 we expanded our range of solid wood worktops quite considerably as well as introducing a large range of highly-affordable laminate countertops.

With so much to choose from, we understand that picking new kitchen surfaces can be a difficult decision, which is why we offer a comprehensive worktops sample service. No matter what surface type you’re considering – whether your preference lies with solid hardwood or laminate – samples are available for each of the worktops in our collection.

Our wooden worktop samples are cut from existing worktop stock and measure 200mm x 150mm x 40mm. Each one is fully sanded and comes pre-oiled on one side to allow you to appreciate the appearance of the finished timber. Our laminate samples, by contrast, are supplied in a pack that includes a small sample of every type of laminate surface in our range, allowing you to compare them easily in the comfort of your own home.

All samples are priced at just £5 including free next-day courier delivery. If you go on to order worktops from us, we will happily refund the cost of the samples on a one-for-one basis. Simply speak to a member of our sales team when placing your order and we will be pleased to discount the sample’s cost from the total.

Samples can also be viewed at each of the Worktop Express showrooms; at present there are six branches – all of which are situated at accessible locations throughout the UK – with new sites due to open in 2017.
