An oak worktop is a beautiful addition to any kitchen - and the natural qualities of the timber make it a practical option, too. Our engineered oak worktops offer a luxurious look using a thin veneer of full stave oak on top of a solid core of standard oak. This allows us to offer solid oak worktops with a full stave 'look' (i.e. boasting a similar, seamless appearance to that of a worktop comprising solid wood staves which run the full length of the surface) at a fraction of the usual cost. The thin veneer is applied to the top, bottom and each long edge and is cut from the same piece of timber, producing a more uniform appearance.
Our environmental policy is something we take incredibly seriously, and we work hard to ensure that all our timber is obtained from legal, responsibly-managed sources (for example, all oak utilised by Worktop Express® originates from Europe). In addition, these engineered prime oak worktops make use of material that otherwise may have been wasted, with a solid oak core that comprises timber which may not have the aesthetically pleasing grain pattern or colouring that we would use in our worktops. The veneer applied to the top and bottom - and along each 2m edge - is made from the same piece of timber, which reduces wastage and provides an even, attractive tone and uniform grain pattern.
This engineered oak worktop measures 2m x 620mm x 40mm and the veneer applied is 0.5mm thick. It is sanded to 150 grit smoothness - just like our other solid wood worktops - ready for the application of oil or treatment of choice. Exceptional quality at an affordable price, any engineered prime oak worktop purchased from us will need to be maintained in the same way as our timber work surfaces. Oiling or treating worktops regularly ensures they are protected whilst also helping to develop a beautiful golden surface hue over time.

Worktop Express® is a distribution company in the truest sense of the word; and cost-effectiveness is built into our business model.
With Worktop Express there is simply no middleman: we even operate our own in-house 2Man delivery service to maximise efficiency. When you choose Worktop Express, you are choosing a group of specialists who devote their expert attention to every step of the process and are single-handedly responsible for sourcing, stocking, marketing, and distributing the product. Ensuring that we are the only link between the customer and manufacturer allows us to offer the most up-to-date products in the market for lower prices than any other retailer.
Our large stock holding - over 15,000 worktops are held in stock at any time across various locations - and sheer purchasing power dictates that the prices we can provide direct to the public and trade are extremely competitive. We do not share the same overheads as high-street stores (on average an initial 270% markup tends to be applied just to cover warehousing and staff costs) and therefore can achieve similar profit margins - but without overcharging customers! Our direct internet delivery model and advanced stock ordering allows us to minimise costs.
We have five strategically-placed depots throughout the UK, all of which are serviced by an impressive fleet of in-house delivery vehicles. As a result, we are able to offer an unparalleled delivery service: cost-effective, consistent, and prompt.
The belief that superb quality can go hand-in-hand with affordability is a lynchpin of the Worktop Express ethos. As a result we are confident that the Worktop Express product range far outstrips the quality of anything you will find on the high street - and often at a fraction of the cost.
Still not convinced? Try our great-value sample service: you'll be glad you did.
